Margaret from Malawi on Today
Margaret is back! She's already made fast friends with Maliana, who came in today for a wound inspection - she was very amused by the funny faces Maliana was making for the camera! We'll find out during ward rounds tomorrow what her next operation will be, please continue your prayers for her.

Thokozani from Malawi on Today
Thokozani was really absorbed by one of the toys in physiotherapy today - he didn't look up to smile and give a thumbs up to the camera as usual! His friends, on the other hand, gave you all big grins!

Mayamiko from Malawi on Today
Poor Mayamiko was grimacing in pain while she did her physiotherapy exercises today, so out of respect we decided not to photograph her... but when we took a photo of Margret and then turned back around she flashed us a huge smile so we would take her picture! Please be praying for her, physio can be tough but it's really essential to healing!

Yohane from Malawi on Yesterday
Yohane is back! He's here for another operation for his burn contracture. This time, it's the larger operation where they temporarily sew the hand into a 'pocket' of skin on the stomach so that the skin and flesh can heal on. He's already out of surgery and asleep, so please be praying that he recovers well!

Loveness from Zambia on Yesterday
Loveness had a good weekend! She won't be having surgery today, but she will tomorrow. This is going to give her more time to rest and get better prepped. She spent some time earlier today with everyone else singing praises to God in the ward. Please be praying for her and her upcoming surgery!

Nivan from Kenya on Yesterday
We're so sorry we didn't keep you better informed of Nivan's progress, friends! He was discharged after his last little trip to the theatre, and we're happy to announce that he comes back for a checkup this Wednesday. Please pray that when he comes, his wound would look better and that he won't have to be re-admitted to the hospital like the last time he came for checkup. Thank you for your continued prayers!

Joel from Uganda on 2 days ago
Joel gets to go home today, which has made everyone around him very happy! Over the weekend Joel received several get well messages which were delivered today. Martha from the NGO Nehemiah held them up for him to see them. We will see him for his follow-up at the clinic in Kampala at the end of next month. Thank you for praying for Joel, writing him, and supporting him during his time at CURE!

Loveness from Zambia on Oct 13, 2017
Loveness is having a good day! She is so excited about wearing shoes on both feet someday, but for right now, she is getting started with her right foot. A few months ago, she wasn't even able to wear shoes because both her feet were a serious case of neglected clubfoot. We are so happy about the progress she has made so far! Please be praying for her as she prepares to get surgery on her left foot on Monday and that she will have a restful weekend!

Mayamiko from Malawi on Oct 13, 2017
Our girl is ready for another walk today! Mayamiko came early to the physiotherapy room today before any other kids showed up. She says she woke up so energetic and ready to go! Mayamiko is continuing to train her right leg to walk while the left one still has a frame on it - her grit is so impressive! Thank you for your support and please continue praying for our strong girl Mayamiko!

Thokozani from Malawi on Oct 13, 2017
Thokozani had a visitor today! She is our Accommodations Coordinator at the hospital, Pamela. She came to the ward to spend time with and encourage the kids and one of them was Thokozani. She asked how he is feeling and he explained how his wound is progressing and the way he is feeling today. He showed her where he was feeling pain on the wound and later they prayed together. Thokozani says he is happy that people are wishing him well and he is thanking God for that. Thokozani will later have a new dressing on his wound. Thank you for supporting him with your prayers!

Joel from Uganda on Oct 13, 2017
“I’m okay, but baby is sick so I feel concerned, he was disturbing through the night,” said Scovia. Last night Joel continued to have fevers and a convulsion. Yesterday’s lab worked showed an elevated level of white blood cells, a sign of an infection, so he has been placed on antibiotics and is under observation. This morning Joel and Scovia attended the nurse’s devotion time which she enjoyed, Joel even tried to clap along to a couple of the songs. “I have been praying for a quick recovery for the child and for the medical team,” said Scovia. Please join Scovia in praying for Joel to recover well.

Faith from Malawi on Oct 12, 2017
Faith has been so talkative today, maybe it's the feeling of excitement due to the fact that she is going home today. She had her leg propped up on the table where food was placed, oh no! We will miss her in the ward, please keep Faith in your prayers as she goes home!

Joel from Uganda on Oct 12, 2017
“Joel didn’t have a good night, he has high fevers, didn’t eat well this morning, and is irritable - he is crying a lot,” said Scovia. Today Joel went to the lab where he had a CBC, urine analysis and has been under observation for fevers. Last night he had a fever of 102.2 Fahrenheit. Scovia and Joel had visitors from an organization called Nehemiah who brought them to CURE. “We should pray that he becomes fine,” said Scovia.

Loveness from Zambia on Oct 11, 2017
Notice that Loveness has a cast and its wrapped in a plastic bag. She got a cast to straighten her foot a little more in preparation for her surgery on Monday. Here, she is about to go take a shower and she doesn't want to get her cast wet. She is one resourceful girl! Thank you for all your prayers for Loveness' healing. Please continue to pray for a good stay in the ward as she waits for surgery on Monday.

Mayamiko is having her temperature taken to know how she is feeling this afternoon. She will later go for her physiotherapy session. Doctors said she should continue trying to walk using her right leg. We hope by the end of the week Mayamiko will be able to use the leg with full strength. We are asking for your continued prayers for her!

Faith from Malawi on Oct 11, 2017
Faith is so energetic and has a big appetite today. Yesterday she spent most of her time in the theatre and didn't eat. She had been crying and complaining of pain after the surgery, but today she is feeling good. She asked her aunt, Stella, for some muffins and Stella brought her some. Faith says she enjoys cakes of all kinds. If all goes well with physiotherapy, Faith will be going home tomorrow. Thank you so much for praying for her!

Thokozani from Malawi on Oct 11, 2017
Thokozani is not himself after the surgery yesterday. He looks a little bit sad, unlike other days. He says he is feeling some pain on a few pin sites. Yesterday, doctors corrected the exposed bone next to his frame and today he has been put on observation. He is not supposed to make any movements for the time being unless advised to do so. His mother is always there watching and taking care of him. Please keep on praying for Thokozani to get well quickly and return to his old self!

Joel from Uganda on Oct 11, 2017
“I feel grateful after the surgery. I can see no problem, I see good progress,” said Scovia. This morning Joel had a good appetite. He had a couple of pieces of bread for breakfast, however it was a battle for Scovia to get him up. He was quite content staying asleep. By 9:30 in the morning, he was out of the ICU. He and Scovia sat outside the ICU enjoying the company of other families. Joel and Scovia had a few visitors today who were excited to see that he was doing well. Please keep Joel in your prayers that he will continue to improve well!

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.
