Zabeirou from Niger on Just Now
Zabeirou saw the doctor today and found out that he can go home!!! His mom shared the great news with us while Zabeirou was taking a nap and she was packing up. We were hoping to get an updated photo of how his lip has healed, but, by the time we went back, he had already left. Thankfully though, they'll be coming back in a few months for a check up and we'll be able to check in with this smiley little man then. In the meantime, we just wanted to share this photo of how far Zabeirou has already come!

Joyce from Malawi on Today
We had a little talent show today and Joyce was our star! She danced and sang her heart out as her friends Flora, Tamala and Rachael cheered her on! Joyce has some moves and we love watching her show off her Malawian ways! Joyce got a new cast today and is waiting on the doctors to come up with a plan for what's next! Thank you for all your continuous prayers for Joyce! https://youtu.be/BoLkK78AOzU

Chimwemwe from Malawi on Today
Here's a thumbs up from Chimwemwe through Evance's frames! Today, we decided to entertain Chimwemwe and Evance by letting them take photos of each other from their hospital beds! We are so grateful these two have each other through frame turns, physio exercises and just being able to chat across the way! Chimwemwe is having a lot of pain and swelling in her left foot. The nurses wrapped an ice pack around it for her to sleep with last night that she found very cool. She says that the frame turns are becoming more painful now that she is further in the process. Please keep Chimwemwe in your prayers, that her swelling goes down and her pain goes away!

Evance from Malawi on Today
Evance has finally come out of his shell! Today we decided to get creative and have Chimwemwe and Evance take photos of each other from their beds that are across from one another in the kid's ward! This is Chimwemwe's photo of Evance! When Evance got a hold of the camera, he loved it! He not only took a photo of Chimwemwe, but also everyone else in the ward. He told the kids, guardians, Storyteller Alexis, and the staff to come pose. He loved learning and trying out all the technical details on how the camera worked. He then told Storyteller Alexis, "Now I want to be a photographer like you with a camera like this!" We are happy Evance is inspired and entertained while continuing his frame turns daily. Please keep him in your prayers and that his new dreams of being a photographer come true!

Sibongile from Malawi on Today
Sibongile started her first session of physio today! The doctors have advised her to start pin-site care. She was in a lot of pain, as her surgery was quite intense. We later caught her practicing her exercises in her hospital bed again with her guardian. We said, "Wow, two sessions in one day?" She laughed and said she hopes it helps her heal quicker. What a trooper! Please continue to keep Sibongile in your prayers and that she heals very quickly!

Miracle from Malawi on Today
Tom and Jerry seems to be a common favorite show here in Malawi! Today Miracle and his two friends Chifundo and Harriet watched an episode of Tom and Jerry on Storyteller Alexis' phone! There was a lot of laughter. Miracle's CT scan is still under review and the doctors are working on a plan for what's next, thank you for your continuous prayers!

Adem from Ethiopia on Today
We gave Adem's uncle a call the other day to say we missed them and to ask if they were planning on coming in for their appointment. It was scheduled for late August but unfortunately they didn't make it. We weren't able to connect with them yet, but we'll keep trying and will let them know to come back as soon as they can!

Befkade from Ethiopia on Today
Befekade was playful today - hiding and peeking from behind his blanket! He is doing well and keeping himself entertained in the ward. He is improving his mobility, walking with the help of his crutches and is doing a wonderful job putting the practice time in!

Mercy from Kenya on Today
Pastor Emmy gave Mercy a toothbrush this week, and this morning, she and Mama Mercy helped Mercy brush her teeth. “That is the tutorial for the day,” Emmy said when it was all over around the time Mercy went back to her coloring. Emmy did more than just give Mercy something to help her teeth be cleaner. She also learned about Mercy and her Jesus. Mama Mercy helped Emmy discover that Mercy respects Jesus and knows we are invited to love Him. Please pray that Mercy’s knowledge turns into more than just knowledge and gets a whole lot closer to her little heart!

Desta from Ethiopia on Today
The operation rooms were busy today and Desta's surgery was postponed because of it. He will have his operation tomorrow which gives him more time to walk around the ward and make new friends!

Seada is a playful and happy child! She has begun her healing journey and will have her operation tomorrow, please keep this little one in your prayers!

Djamila from Niger on Today
Djamila finally stopped back for her follow up appointment! She got told off a little because she's been avoiding using her casted foot when she was told she needs to be walking on it. Using her foot, at this point in her healing, will help strengthen her bone which needs to happen before the cast is taken off. Otherwise, though, she's doing great! She's heading back home now and will be back for another check up in a while. Please be praying she has the determination and dedication to walk on her foot like the doctors have told her to!

Ryan from the Philippines on Today
As Ryan continued to heal, he stopped by physical therapy to start moving his arm. Today, he stretched his arm as high as he could––something that he hasn’t done in a long time. Pastor Ruel was right there to support him and gather the dressing materials that they needed to bring home. Pastor Ruel and Ryan’s parents have been old friends. Since Ryan was little, Pastor Ruel has been a part of Ryan’s growth in mentorship. Ryan’s parents and Pastor Ruel’s friendship has grown for a long time––a proof that Ryan is blessed to have a great community in this journey!

Cheryl from the Philippines on Today
With a little help from bubbles and while safely tucked into Rolly's arms, Cheryl braved through her cast change today. The bandage on her hand was no longer there, but her feet will continue to heal for a couple more weeks with another set of casts. Based on her old worn out casts, we know that this new set will not stop her from moving! After a few weeks, her feet will be ready and finally cast-free!
