Tresford from Zambia on 2 days ago
It was a little warmer today outside the hospital and so Tresford was among lots of people outside the ward sun - basking. He is still getting used to having casts on and this has made him a bit cranky having to move around with the heavy casts on his legs. Please be praying for him and his dad and their stay in the hospital.

John from Kenya on 2 days ago
As we wait to catch up with John at our next clinic near his home in a few weeks, we’d like to share this sweet tidbit from our spiritual department about John. John, a ten year old boy, confessed that Christ is his friend for he forgave him of his sins and promised him eternal life. He gave his life to Christ last year in December during one of our Sunday school sessions. He read Bible stories in our playroom and explained the moral lessons drawn from them, something that was really encouraging! He was grateful to God for the successful surgery and kept praying for quicker healing of his hand to allow him write at ease at school.

“We are going! We learned how to clean the wound so they are sending us home. I feel happy! I am very happy, God is great!" After nearly a full month at CURE, Aaron and Annet are going home. We will see them again at CURE at the end of July, please remember them in your prayers.

Lufina from Malawi on 3 days ago
Lufina's a menace today - she's been grabbing our hands and SQUEEZING as hard as she can - but then again it's only fair since we tickle her back! Here she is, hiding behind Gilberta's wheelchair!

Chinasi from Malawi on 3 days ago
Chinasi had 27 messages built up since she was last in the hospital! We brought them to her today since she's up and about and seems a lot happier. She and Fabiola really enjoyed listening to Thandy translate them! Her mom says 'thank you so much for the prayers and greetings' and asked for you all to continue!

Faith has spread her bad habit of sticking out her tongue to her new friend Elenata! They were both waiting for wound dressings this morning - we're glad the kids make such fast friends!

Calvine from Malawi on 3 days ago
When CUREkids Coordinator Avanell came in today, Calvine was already in physio and in the CKC office running around with Thandy. Calvine loves "DJ" Thandy and he complains if we turn off the African music! He also likes to sit on Thandy's desk and touch everything!

Aaron from Uganda on 3 days ago
“You have to have faith in God, we are here because the love of the Lord. Everything will be okay, I know all this will be healed in the name of Jesus Christ,” said Annet. “They told me they will teach me how to clean it (Aaron’s wound) myself at home,” said Annet. Aaron and Annet are still at the hospital and Aaron continues to be monitored. Annet is waiting to learn how to clean his wound and she is hopeful that they will be able to go home tomorrow. Her prayer request is for Aaron to have a good future.

Faith from Malawi on Jun 21, 2017
"Bleh!" Faith speaks really good English compared to most of the kids, but the thing we hear her say most is "bleh!" and "Chimzy!" Another CUREkid, Shakira, left yesterday, much to my sorrow, and Faith keeps asking why I'm sad she left - "Because I miss her!" "Oh." I guess Faith doesn't miss Shakira's antics quite as much!

Tresford from Zambia on Jun 21, 2017
Tresford is not doing too well today. He has malaria but, he has already started medication for it. He has been cranky and will only calm down when his dad puts him on his back. Please be praying that the malaria episode passes quickly.

Chinasi from Malawi on Jun 21, 2017
Chinasi seems to be recovering a bit! She's been smiling and calling us over for photos! Unfortunately, she still seems to be glued to her bed - hard to move around with your hand stuck to your tummy - but hopefully, she'll gain some confidence and be up and about soon!

Loveness from Zambia on Jun 21, 2017
Loveness is doing so good! She is a happy and confident girl - so different from when she first came to CURE! She came to CURE yesterday so she could be on time for her followup this morning. She is doing so well, and her foot is looking great! She will be back in September for her next followup. We are excited to see her almost at the finish line of her healing journey!

Lufina from Malawi on Jun 21, 2017
Lufina seems to already be fully recovered from her surgery - in terms of her attitude at least! She's already laughing and giggling again although she's walking around with a stiff leg we're sure the physios will get her bending it again in no time!

Calvine from Malawi on Jun 21, 2017
Calvine and a bunch of the other little boys - Neyma and Ebenezer - are playing the "run away screaming and giggling" game! It's so much fun! Unfortunately, Calvine's hand doesn't look good enough to go home yet, but hopefully next week he'll be all set! His granny seems a bit disappointed, but he doesn't seem to mind having more time to play with the other kids!

Aaron from Uganda on Jun 21, 2017
“I’m just praying God would help me and discharge me tomorrow,” said Annet. Aaron got his stitches removed from the wound site on his head and a honey dressing was applied. This morning visitors came to the ward distributing get well messages and praying for the children in the hospital. Annet and Aaron were prayed for, that he would be healed and strength for his mother. Please join our community in praying for Aaron to be healthy enough to go home soon.

Imassane from Niger on Jun 21, 2017
With one screw tightening under her belt, the second one was no big deal. Each turn gets her a little bit closer to the finish line and we can't wait to see the results!

Gambo from Niger on Jun 21, 2017
It's another bandage change day for Gambo. It seems like every time the bandages are getting smaller and smaller making complete healing seem closer and closer!

Tresford from Zambia on Jun 21, 2017
Tresfold has had a good start to his day yesterday. He was all dressed up looking pretty cool like the two year old he is and Dr Moyo visited him in the morning to decide the course of action for his clubfoot. He decided that because of the severity of his clubfoot, he would have Tresfold do fast track Ponseti that will also help with his knees too. This means he will get casts more than once a week, for at least a whole month because they live far from the CURE hospital. Tresfold will likely get surgery after the fast track ponseti. Maxwell later met with the physiotherapist to discuss what fast track ponseti will mean for them and he is very hopeful for his son. The physio therapist scheduled Tresfold for his first casting yesterday and it all went well and except for a little crying, Tresfold did well. It's going to be a long journey ahead, but Maxwell and his son Tresfold are ready! Please be praying for them!

Gloria from Niger on Jun 20, 2017
Gloria had some fun in art therapy today. While she's a little older than most the other patients and speaks a different language, she's slowly making friends and finding her place here!

Why I Support CURE

Tomlin-video-still_web
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.
