Improvements and Inclusion: CURE Niger’s 9th Anniversary Celebration
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 […]
Christmas in Kenya
What is Christmas like in Kenya? Christmas in Kenya is a time for sharing and coming together to help the less fortunate. It is common to see groups visiting children’s homes bringing food, clothes, and other needed supplies. The weather in Kenya, during Christmas, is usually sunny and warm in most parts of the country. […]
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!
“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 […]
The Instant Sorority
Imagine suddenly being considered a freak. It’s because of your baby. Your baby was fine … until she wasn’t. Her head started growing to inexplicable proportions. You’ve never seen anything like it. Neither has your husband, who calls you cursed and abandons you. Your community, your family turn their backs on you, too. You are […]
More powerful and relevant than any trending post
Last December, the Tebow CURE Hospital went viral online and was even featured during a segment on the local news! With the participation of staff from each floor, we held a Christmas decor contest. The rules: staff members could only use recycled materials to deck the halls. The local news caught wind of our unique […]
What’s in a Name?
There’s a village here in Niger named Kallon Mota, which means “where people go to look at cars.” Back in the 70s and 80s, most everyone relied on either animal or human transport to get around. Many had heard of cars, but few had ever seen one. Kallon Mota was nothing but a sandy flat […]
“She gave thanks to the Lord”
Not long after Jesus’ birth, Joseph and Mary took Jesus to the temple to present Him to God. While it was certain to be a special moment in their lives, it was also something that they would no doubt have expected to be fairly routine.
