Faith from Malawi on Today
Faith is back for physio and she is getting stronger! After her session, she passed us walking out the front gate of the hospital! When we held up the camera to take her photo, she ran and hid behind the bush laughing! She then popped out, running into her guardians arms and waving saying, "BYE! See you soon!" See you soon Faith! Thanks for keeping this crazy awesome girl in your prayers!

Shukurani from Malawi on Today
Shukurani has been discharged! He is very excited to head home with his new casts! He has been in a lot of pain since surgery and still isn't super fond of the camera, but while he was walking out the door, we got a smile out of him as we danced saying "kunyumba! kunyumba!" meaning "home! home!" We are scheduled to see him again next year at the Nkhotakota clinic. Please keep him and his dad in your prayers as they journey home on this rainy day in Malawi!

Abubeker from Ethiopia on Today
Whenever Abubeker sees our camera, he asks for his picture! He then counts on his fingers to decide how many photos he wants! He is loads of fun to have around and we're thankful for his joy he shares while he heals!

Stephanie from Kenya on Today
"I miss home, I miss my friends. Actually when I get home I will invite all of them to come and see me and make them understand why I will not be visiting them," Stephanie informed us. She had a wonderful night and the nausea ended yesterday evening! Thank you for praying for that! Alice, one of our physiotherapists, took her through the corridors using a walker as her Dad and Mom watched her every move and step. She is up and ready to get back home! She was discharged today and will return in January, please continue praying for our smart girl!

Elleni from Ethiopia on Today
"I walked to school and it was not that hard!" Elleni told us at her checkup. She is such a brave girl and her healing is going on well. Her wound is healed and Dr. Tim told her to walk without her crutches and to get a new shoe raise. It was encouraging to see that the discrepancy in the length of her two legs is getting smaller! We will see her in a year for another check-up, please keep her in your prayers for continued healing and a safe return back to the hospital!

Stephanie from Kenya on Yesterday
Stephanie woke up feeling a bit nauseated today. She was given something to help her with the nausea and her mum was asked to give her a lot of water. The nausea hasn’t completely gone away, but our smart friend is focusing on other things like cartoons and getting some sleep. Steph will be taken through how to use crutches today and tomorrow. Would you please pray that her nausea goes away and that she is able to eat some food? Thank you so much for being with Stephanie throughout her treatment journey!

Shavin from Kenya on Yesterday
Shavin came to clinic today to see the doctor. His mum had a few concerns when she saw how Shavin’s little fingers and toes looked. The doctor was able to reassure her that her son was going to be well after the intervention process. His mum was also advised on how to clean the wound and we will see them again in a month's time. Thank you for your prayers for him!

Faith from Kenya on Yesterday
Someone is progressing in her healing and it’s Faith! Today’s progress included getting measured for an orthotic and being scheduled to come to CURE Kenya in a couple weeks to pick up her orthotic. Next step in her progress is surgery for her other foot next year. As she continues on this journey, please pray for every step she must take – physically and medically. Pray that the pain won’t be too great and that the reward will be so much greater!

Adam from Uganda on Yesterday
Adam was scheduled for an Endoscopic third ventriculostomy with choroid plexus cauterization (ETV/CPC) today but unfortunately Dr. Peter was unable to do the procedure due to Adam having an infection. His previous irrigation was unsuccessful, so Dr. Peter had to do another ventriculoscopy irrigation. Adam will need another operation in the future. While Adam was recovering from surgery, Susan went to the spiritual center playroom and took part in an impromptu Bible study to learn how to better navigate and find things in the Bible. Please be praying for Adam to recover well from the surgery and for comfort and strength for Susan!

Photo of Patience
Patience from Uganda on Yesterday
We saw Patience today at clinic and found that she has an eye infection. While they were at CURE Uganda our medical team gave her medicine and her eye improved, but while she was at home, she ran out of the eye ointment, so Harriet brought her to our satellite clinic with that as her major concern. Back at home however, Harriet and her husband are living in harmony. He provides for Patience and herself and she says that she is still firm in Christ, in fact she is an usher in her church! Our doctors have treated her but also have referred her to visit an ophthalmologist. Please continue to pray for her health. We hope to see her at our next satellite clinic in 2019!

Chimwemwe from Malawi on 2 days ago
Chimwemwe is taking her first steps toward healing! We are so excited to see her standing after two whole months of being on bed rest! She smiled throughout her entire physio session. Our physiotherapist Diana says, "It's crazy how she even laughs when she is in pain. She is always so joyful!" That's right! Chimwemwe is our joy and we sure are going to miss her as she heads home early tomorrow morning! We are so excited for her to spend time at home with her baby Ethel and we plan on seeing her again in 2019 on January 20th! Please continue to keep Chimwemwe in your prayers while she is away!

Nkandu from Zambia on 2 days ago
Nkandu read the Bible during ward devotions today! Our spiritual department distributes Bibles in different local languages because they are easier to read and Nkandu was reading from one of the Bibles in his language!

Shukurani from Malawi on 2 days ago
Shukurani went into the operating room today and had a bilateral tenotomy, in which the surgeons released both tendons above the heel. Before going into surgery, he saw Storyteller Alexis walking through the ward with her camera, and immediately hid behind his dad laughing! Shukurani is super camera shy! Shukurani has two new casts and his dad asks that you please continue to keep Shukurani in your prayers as he recovers!

Kedija from Ethiopia on 2 days ago
One of our co-workers, Mahider, wanted to be in Kedija's photo and Kedija was happy about that! She is doing very well and walking well too! Her healing is making good progress and we will see her in six months for another check-up!

Sibongile from Malawi on 2 days ago
Sibo came in for physio today! "I missed you!" she told us. "Home has been good, especially because at home I don't have to come to physio," Sibo laughed at herself. She says she really doesn't like physio, but has noticed she is getting better! We were so happy to see Sibo again and blessed to receive one of her big hugs! Thanks for your continued prayers for Sibongile's healing, she has come a long way and today was the first day she didn't cry during physiotherapy!

Anita from Kenya on 2 days ago
Poor Anita’s fingers are rather stiff. “She’s losing her advantage,” Dr. Mailu told us. She needs physio to stretch her fingers more than what we can help with when on clinic, so now she’ll need to continue at a place close to her home. As she does this, please pray for her fingers to stretch so that the next time we see her on clinic at the end of January, she’ll have gotten that advantage back!

Martha from Kenya on 2 days ago
Dr. Mailu and Martha were having a conversation today and being silly. When we asked about it, Dr. Mailu told us, “I was telling her you haven’t given her candy and neither have you given me and we are here smiling!” We need to start carrying some serious candy in our camera bag! Martha is doing well and will continue her physio exercises, including coming on November 29th for more of it. Hopefully we’ll be there to give her candy. We should give some to Dr. Mailu too!

Photo of Meshack
Meshack from Kenya on 2 days ago
When we asked Meshack’s mom about him, she told us, “Not bad.” When we asked the doctor about Meshack, he told us, “Not bad.” And so we must conclude that Meshack is not bad! We’re thankful for this not-badness and we’re hoping that he’ll continue not being bad until we see him in January!

Hadija from Ethiopia on 2 days ago

Zakari from Niger on 2 days ago
Zakari is back again and his condition has improved! He now can walk with his walker! He can stand on his leg for a few minutes but then needs the walker again. He had therapy today and they gave him exercises to do so that his knee will be able to hold him up. Pray for him as he continues with his healing process!

Hassana from Niger on 2 days ago
Today Hassana and her friends have mixed feelings. Hassana is excited that she got her cast off and that she will be going home. Her friends are happy she will be going home but sad that they will miss a friend. Nana (Hassana's friend closest to her) said "All my other friends are gone and now Hassana will be leaving." Pray for Hassana as she heads home, that her foot will continue to heal well and for her friends here at CURE Niger that she will be leaving behind!

Adam from Uganda on 2 days ago
“The doctor said he will be taking him to surgery tomorrow. I wish God will work upon him and the surgery will be successful. I have been handing over everything to God,” said Susan. This morning Susan spent time outside the ward praying by herself, she is relying on God for her strength at this time. Adam and Susan have had a quiet day spending time resting. Please join Susan in praying for a successful operation tomorrow and continued strength for Susan!

Stephanie from Kenya on 2 days ago
“We had a very good night! Her response to the procedure was just awesome,” Regina told us when we asked about Stephanie. Our smart girl did not cry at night and when she woke up in the morning she had lots of breakfast. We delivered a get well message to Steph and she was so excited to see that there are friends all over the world reading her story and praying with her! Steph needs to stay at CURE Kenya for a few days as she is being monitored by the doctors and physiotherapists. We hope to have more fun with her while she is here!

Nkandu from Zambia on 3 days ago
When Nkandu saw us coming with the camera he started making his cool dude poses and loved the photos after we showed him! He is still around for observation and we should be hearing what the doctor will say tomorrow about his way forward during the ward round! We will let you know - in the meantime, please continue praying for our cool dude!

Stephanie from Kenya on 3 days ago
Yesterday we asked Stephanie if she was ready to go to theatre. Her mum quickly gave us a wink to mean Stephanie wasn’t ready to talk about it. “I told her that the doctor was going to come and put a plaster on her leg and that's it!” Regina, Steph’s mum, told us. Steph’s procedure went well, it took a while but was ultimately successful. Pray with us for healing for our smart girl!

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.
