Adam from Uganda on Today
“We are still here, pray for us to go home,” said Susan. This morning Susan spent time with Mama David who she has become friends with, Susan helped her get ready to leave the hospital. Susan is happy that Adam is doing well but is certainly counting down the days until they can leave. Susan was very curious about Pennsylvania, a curiosity that was sparked from one of the get well messages they had received. We showed her where Pennsylvania was on a map - it is 7,153 miles from Uganda, which in Susan’s words, “Is far away!” Susan and Adam had a normal day at the hospital where Susan did laundry, talked with friends and staff members, and attended the afternoon church service. Please continue to write to Adam and Susan especially if you are familiar with Pennsylvania!

Umer was hungry while waiting for his turn to be called to the operation room this morning!.His mother Meliha tried comforting him by moving him around the ward bundled to her back. His operation went well and Dr. Andrew did a beautiful job fixing his lip. He's resting peacefully in the ward, please keep him in your prayers!

He loves listening to music and playing games with his new friend Blessings. We always catch the two of them dabbing around the hospital! Kelvin will be discharged today after getting a shoe raise from our physiotherapists. We plan to see him again at our Lilongwe clinic in 2019! Please continue to keep him in your prayers!

We had a little talent show today and Joyce was our star! She danced and sang her heart out as her friends Flora, Tamala and Rachael cheered her on! Joyce has some moves and we love watching her show off her Malawian ways! Joyce got a new cast today and is waiting on the doctors to come up with a plan for what's next!

Chimwemwe from Malawi on Yesterday
Here's a thumbs up from Chimwemwe through Evance's frames! Today, we decided to entertain Chimwemwe and Evance by letting them take photos of each other from their hospital beds! We are so grateful these two have each other through frame turns, physio exercises and just being able to chat across the way! Chimwemwe is having a lot of pain and swelling in her left foot. The nurses wrapped an ice pack around it for her to sleep with last night that she found very cool. She says that the frame turns are becoming more painful now that she is further in the process. Please keep Chimwemwe in your prayers, that her swelling goes down and her pain goes away!

Evance from Malawi on Yesterday
Evance has finally come out of his shell! Today we decided to get creative and have Chimwemwe and Evance take photos of each other from their beds that are across from one another in the kid's ward! This is Chimwemwe's photo of Evance! When Evance got a hold of the camera, he loved it! He not only took a photo of Chimwemwe, but also everyone else in the ward. He told the kids, guardians, Storyteller Alexis, and the staff to come pose. He loved learning and trying out all the technical details on how the camera worked. He then told Storyteller Alexis, "Now I want to be a photographer like you with a camera like this!" We are happy Evance is inspired and entertained while continuing his frame turns daily. Please keep him in your prayers and that his new dreams of being a photographer come true!

Sibongile from Malawi on Yesterday
Sibongile started her first session of physio today! The doctors have advised her to start pin-site care. She was in a lot of pain, as her surgery was quite intense. We later caught her practicing her exercises in her hospital bed again with her guardian. We said, "Wow, two sessions in one day?" She laughed and said she hopes it helps her heal quicker. What a trooper! Please continue to keep Sibongile in your prayers and that she heals very quickly!

Habiba made it back for her follow up appointment today! She's walking without her walker and loving her freedom. The doctors say she's doing well and, after today's appointment, they've scheduled her for another follow-up in January so our little lady is on her way once again!

Adam from Uganda on 2 days ago
“My mother is doing a great job taking care of the children back at home,” Susan says. She called home and was told that everything is fine although she misses being with her family. The rains have come in her district, so she says her family is cultivating food. Susan was told by the doctors that after Adam finishes his dose of antibiotics he will be discharged but will need another surgery for hydrocephalus at a later date and Susan hopes that it won’t be long from now. This morning she spent some time in prayer with Immaculate from our Spiritual Center. Please continue to remember Adam in your prayers as well as he finishes his antibiotics.

Patrick from Zambia on 2 days ago
Patrick went for a dressing change today, as he was passing by near our desk, we caught up with him and thought it was the perfect time to share with him your get well messages! He is thankful for the encouragement. He said, "Tell them to continue praying for me, I appreciate!"

Nathan from Zambia on 2 days ago
Nathan has came through for his follow up review! One leg is corrected and the other is being planned for, he will need to do further medical examinations to determine the next course of action. During our ward devotions, his grandfather Patson took some time to share how the journey has been so far for him and Nathan at CURE Zambia, he also encouraged the parents and guardians as they prayed together!

Chimwemwe from Malawi on 2 days ago
Chimwemwe has been a bit down this past week after Baby Ethel left to go back home! She's been in the hospital for quite some time now continuing her turns at physio, so we are doing are best to keep her entertained. Today while raising her legs up and down for her physio exercises, Storyteller Alexis decided to go sit next to her and give it a try! They did both legs counting to ten in English each time. Even though Chimwemwe has frames on, she was much better than Alexis. She laughed and said, "You are not very flexible!" which then made everyone else laugh. It looks like Chimwemwe and Alexis will now be doing physio together more often! Please keep Chimwemwe in your prayers and that she be constantly filled with the joy and love of God during her time here in the hospital!

Evance from Malawi on 2 days ago
Our sweet Evance has arrived at physio! Today he worked on keeping his legs completely straight while raising them up and down for his exercises, he didn't even shake! These frames are making him so strong! Evance is still very quiet, but he loves people watching and sweets. While he was sleeping today, we left a lollipop cuddled up with him. He said that when he woke up he laughed really hard and then immediately ate it! He loves lollipops! Please continue to keep Evance in your prayers as he continues his turns to full healing!

Hadiza from Niger on 2 days ago
Hadiza is having fun making puppets with some of our weekly volunteers here at CURE Niger. She is super creative! You may not know what she is thinking because of how quiet she is, but her art sure can speak. Pray for her healing process and that everything may continue going well.

Ephraim from Zambia on 2 days ago
Celebrating a milestone! Ephraim is no longer required to walk with crutches! He is still limping a little but it's improving and he will need to continue wearing his AFO. Charity, Ephraim's mother, had concerns whether he will need to wear the AFO until he grows old but she has been reassured that he will eventually stop using it. An X ray was done and the correction looks good so we will need to see him again after six months. The progress made so far has been exciting for Charity to see, "When I look at his old photos and how he is looking now, it's hard to believe! We may even forget how he was before. I was telling him that next week he will start going to school!" Thank you for your prayers and support for Ephraim - his life has been completely transformed!

Catherine from Kenya on 2 days ago
Catherine and her grandma are so faithful to come for Catherine's doctors appointments and it isn’t easy either. Their home is a five to six hour drive to Kijabe where CURE Kenya is by car and from what we know, they come by public transport which often isn’t as nice or as comfortable as a car and potentially takes longer. But still -- they come. Today Catherine spent time with her friend Irene which helped keep her busy before and after seeing the doctor. She still had a bit of a rough go since the nurse had to take her stitches out and that is none too fun. But -- that’s over and we’ll catch her on November 6th at clinic where we’ll see how her progress is coming!

Abush from Ethiopia on 2 days ago
Abush told us that he is back in school and he is in grade four now! He likes it there and loves learning! He came back with his friend Tesfanesh, and both of them have grown up so much since we saw them last time. We will see him in a year for another check-up, thank you for your continued prayers for him!
