We're pleased to report that Loveness is feeling - in her own words - "much better!". She's well and truly overcome her fear of standing after her surgery, and has been spending more time out of bed and walking around the last few days. Praise God!

Eliza and her little friend Yankho have been hanging out today! Their beds are opposite each other, so it's pretty much a sleepover every night for these two. Keep praying for Eliza as her hand heals, as well as for her eye surgery that is coming up soon.

Lonjezo's been missing her two older brothers - back at home they are her favorite playmates! Luckily she's still bright and cheerful, and had many a cheeky grin for us today. She's been scheduled to have surgery tomorrow, so please pray for her and the surgeons as they prepare.

TodaySepo from Zambia

Sepo had surgery today! She cried until she saw that even in the cast, her legs look more straight. We hope that she's able to understand that the temporary pain will all be worth having straighter legs! Please pray for her during the recovery process as she rests and heals!

Briciano is resting at the moment as he has had a very long night. He threw up his medicine during the night and this upset his mother very much. The doctor says Briciano is just fine but will be kept under observation for a little while. Briciano has made a new friend and has been spending days with Jen who helps out by taking little Briciano out for walks!

TodayInonge from Zambia

Inonge had a successful surgery. Her temperature came down significantly so the doctors decided it was time to do her surgery. She got a shunt revision which was fairly straightforward. Inonge is now in recovery and is doing fairly well. She cried a lot after surgery but is now sleeping peacefully. Please continue to pray for healing for Inonge and peace for Viola as Inonge continues to get better.

TodayMphatso from Malawi

Mphatso was wheeled into theater first thing this morning, ready to have his broken leg sorted out. Because of the way it was set when he first broke it, Mphatso's leg ended up in the wrong position. Our job was to straighten it out, as well as remove the extra bone that had begun growing in the wrong place. Mphatso ended up with a metal plate in his leg, which is what will hold it in the correct position. Please pray for him as he recovers, and we'll update you with how he's feeling tomorrow!

Mohamed and Evaline had a quiet weekend, Evaline spent it talking and sharing with her friends at the hospital. She has been able to call home, she spoke with her brother Godfrey he told her that he was praying for her. Evaline was curious if Christians were praying for Mohamed even though he was a Muslim, I told her of course! This was reaffirmed when she received three get well cards! Keep them coming as they are a very real source of encouragement!

Here's Lonjezo with her pal Florida - we love their cute smiles, and we love seeing friendships develop over tough situations. We're pretty sure that there's many other places that these kids would rather be than in hospital, but they truly make the best of it, and the friends they make are a big part of that!

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.
