Promise from KenyaToday

Siku njema huonekana asubuhi - a swahili saying that translates to: A good day becomes evident in the morning. Today in the morning we went to check on Promise, he was peacefully sleeping and his grandmother who was already awake told us, "He is better today." A statement we got from a lot of other mothers in the ward, and we knew it was definitely going to be a better day. When Promise finally woke up, he was smiling, not a wide all-teeth showing smile, but a cool shy smile. He was no longer in pain. We thank God that he is doing great, we hope and continue to pray that the swelling on his foot will go down and he will soon be on his way home. Thank you for standing in prayer for all our kids in the ward. We praised God for all the answered prayers!

Stelia from MalawiToday

Stelia's enjoying the playroom again this morning! She said that she had physio earlier today and wasn't in any pain, and that she's pretty happy! Thandy says she sounds a bit tired of the hospital though, so we're excited to say that Dr. James gave the okay to send her home tomorrow! We asked, and he said she probably won't have the plate taken out because since she has a bone condition, she probably won't grow much more so it will just correct by the time she's done growing!

Jojo! Those shoes just might be a tad too big for you! Joseph's wound is "still a bit mucky" so he's going to be in the hospital for a little longer and has been put on antibiotics to try to help it heal.

Pearson from MalawiToday

Pearson is doing well today! He had some physiotherapy with physio student Lawrence this afternoon. Tomorrow he's going to go in for some sort of procedure - Dr. James says it will depend on how his wound looks. If it's still bad he'll just have another vac put on, but if not, they'll either leave it off or possibly skin graft if it looks really clean! Please be praying!

Why I Support CURE

Tomlin-video-still_web
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.
