Andrew was moved out of the ICU and into the ward this morning. Currently, his doctors have no concerns about his recovery which is wonderful. Deborah is happy that Andrew's operation is over and that they have been moved to the ward. Please keep these two in your prayers as Andrew continues to recover from surgery.
This week we have the opportunity to host Mama Maureen, who has come to train our nurses. This morning we had a wonderful time with her as she told the story of Naaman the Syrian to the kids. Then, they all drew pictures to remember the story. Look at Maryam’s and Nafissa’s!
“I’m happy because my baby is going for an operation and God is with him,” said Deborah. Andrew has gone into surgery where our doctors have performed an ETV/CPC. After that, Andrew will be moved to the PACU. Please pray for a quick recovery for Andrew.
This morning Deborah was told that Andrew will go into surgery on Monday or Tuesday. She says that she is happy because Andrew will be helped. They had a peaceful night and so far today has gone well. On Deborah’s night stand she has her Bible with Psalms and the New Testament which she has been reading and getting encouragement from. Please pray for Andrew and Deborah as they await surgery.
Andrew and Deborah are having a good day! Andrew is a very happy baby and continues to love being bounced up and down. Deborah went to the church service that was held in the ward today where our pastors taught about forgiveness and trusting God, Deborah liked the service a lot. Please continue to pray for Andrew as he awaits surgery.
"Lamah is so active, even when you are bathing her she tries to get out of the basin," said Fatuma smiling. Lamah's head has increased by 2 centimeters, but her doctor wasn't worried about it, he advised Fatuma to keep monitoring her until next month. Apart from the slight increment in her head size, she is totally fine. Please continue to pray for her healing.
Deborah was given a couple of books from pastor Nelson about Jesus which she has been reading. She says they are about relying on Jesus when you are in need. Andrew continues to be on medication to treat pneumonia. Mother and son have been playing a little today, this afternoon he has been resting, which is nice for Deborah because it allows her to read. Please keep these two in prayer as they await surgery.
Andrew and Deborah are feeling well rested today! They had a good night and both of them slept well. Today there is not a lot going on, they have been playing a little on their bed and Deborah has been talking with her friends. One of our spiritual team members, Pastor Nelson, visited Deborah spending about half an hour with her. Deborah has been able to call home and they are aware that Andrew and her have made it safely to the hospital and are settling in. Please continue to pray for Andrew and Deborah as they await surgery.
Yesterday, we got to visit one of our partner organizations, House of Haven, where Jaica is currently staying at. God provided a really nice place for her to stay where she is well taken care of and have people around helping her get around and walk. We’re thankful for your partnership with us in prayers! Jaica is definitely getting stronger and we praise God for all that He is doing in her life!
“I know he will be healed,” said Deborah. Andrew and Deborah arrived on Friday and have gotten settled into the hospital. Deborah has met several mothers who she has befriended and on Saturday one of them shared a few scriptures with her which was a big encouragement. Andrew is suffering from pneumonia for which he was put on medication yesterday and the regiment will last one week. His doctors are still running tests regarding his hydrocephalus, so at this time there is no date for surgery. Please pray that Andrew will get healthy quickly so that he can have surgery soon!
Miracle was discharged last week. Ruth was excited to be heading back home because she had to head back to work. They will continue to do tests at their local hospital. Next time they come for followup, we will know what is really going on with Miracles's bowels. Hopefully Ruth will be able to perform the CIC and bowel management on her own and get better at it! Please keep praying for Miracle and Ruth!
Sophia was discharged over the weekend! We won't see her back for a while but at least she can continue healing at home and we're sure she'll still be productive with her math problems in hand! Please be praying for her, 9 weeks in that spica cast is no fun at all! Until then, we will keep you posted on her progress when she comes back!

Why I Support CURE
Chris is excited to join CURE for the same reason most of us are part of it: Seeing the Kingdom of God at work in kids lives. "Kids right now who can't walk, they're being carried, who can't go outside because their faces look different… they get to be kids again. Because of CURE… because of you and me and everyone else involved, kids will be kids again, and be able to walk and run.Chris Tomlin
