I hope this finds you well. We’re all dealing with a lot, I think. Here are a few (six, really) quick reminders, all of which I have to remind myself. 1. Right now, God remains surprised by nothing. We are promised troubles in this life. I’ve heard of people who abandon their faith when things […]

The Importance of Prayer: A Servant Girl’s Faith

by on Thursday, March 5, 2020 at 7:04 am

There’s this story we like to tell here at CURE Niger. It’s the story of Naaman being healed of leprosy in 2 Kings 5. The short version is Naaman has leprosy. A servant girl says “Hey Naaman, you should go see Elisha.” So, Namaan goes to Elisha. Namaan takes a bath, then boom! No leprosy. […]

Loving the Outcasts

Jesus had this crazy thing where he loved everyone. He particularly had a thing for those who everyone else didn’t really care about. He hung out with swindlers, adulterers, criminals, and children. That last one sticks out a little bit, but in Biblical times, children had a much different role in society than they do […]

Have you had surgery? Has your child? Even if you were anxiously awaiting treatment, you were probably a bit nervous, scared, and unsure.

Last week, I had the privilege of returning to Niger, where I served with CURE for seven years at the CURE Hospital des Enfants in the capital city of Niamey (CURE Niger). It has been almost a year since our family left Niger, and it was wonderful to have the chance to visit Niamey, reconnect […]

Far More Abundantly

Back in early 2017, mobile clinics intimidated me. Each one was a culmination of about six weeks of work within communities up to three hours away from the Tebow CURE Hospital. We’d spend six weeks creating partnerships, educating health and social workers, and preparing a venue for the Tebow CURE team to screen patients. All […]

God doesn’t create extras

A very long time ago, when I was in high school, my best friend Jerry’s dad worked for a small movie company located in our city. They made and distributed evangelistic films. One summer, we got the chance to be in one of the movies. It had a storyline that involved teen pregnancy, drug use, […]

Who will lift my burden?

An International Women’s Day reflection based on the experiences of CURE mums in Zambia I rise up early in the morning—sweeping the yard in the midst of raising dust as it has not rained for sometime due to climate change; later on I prepare breakfast for my husband, so that by the time he wakes […]

A short, sweet, and powerful prayer: God help me!

by on Wednesday, March 6, 2019 at 4:31 pm

“Prayer is at the center of everything we do” is a CURE axiom you may have seen on our website. Perhaps, you secretly thought as you viewed this statement, you’d rather find something to do than to pray; you were seeking a way to offer real help to children who come to CURE centers for […]
