Warren’s day was just too awesome to capture in one picture! He was full on smiling and giving us high 5’s this morning, we were amazed! His attitude just gets better and better. He spent a bit of time in the Physical Therapy room learning how to use his crutches. He will get a prosthetic in the near future after he heals, but for now crutches will be his mode of transportation. Thanks for your continued prayers for Warren!

Jess Ryan was feeling the pain a bit more today, but he was able to squeeze out a smile. We told him that if he didn’t feel like smiling, he didn’t have to, but he still managed one. His fever’s down, and his fleece blanket was off, that’s the good news! Bam Bam went home, so now we have to count on John Vincent to entertain us all, and so far he hasn’t let us down, he is over the top cute! So, we had to include a picture of him too! Please keep praying for Jess Ryan, that all his body parts will feel good at the same time!

Just NowJohn Carlo from Philippines

John Carlo is still as cool and casual as he was the day before his surgery, it really is a miracle. His roommate was struggling with some pain this morning, and John Carlo seemed honestly concerned for him. He didn’t say anything, but his sweet little face spoke volumes. We shared some Get Well messages with him, which was a good distraction. And, his roommate is doing better now too! Thanks for keeping all of these kids in your prayers!

Just NowErica from Philippines

Erica was still her sweet, smiling self today, but she’s getting antsy to head home! That should happen in the next day or two, but for now, she’s still content to relax and hang out in bed, getting much needed rest. Her 4 year old sister Emily has definitely made herself at home here, we’ve seen her in the playroom several times, she’s been such a good sport! She loves having her picture taken, and Erica let her share the photo spotlight today.

She says someday when Grace is older, she will tell her about their stay at CURE and how Loveness kept coming to CURE until Grace got her surgery! We will be seeing Grace next week when she comes to get her stitches removed! Thank you for your endless prayers for this sweet girl!

TodaySinani from Malawi

Sinani's wound check went well, and as you can see he's as happy as ever, getting up to mischief in the ward! In theater, we found that the wounds are healing nicely, although the graft on Sinani's little finger didn't take. Other than that it's looking great, and we've bandaged it back up again to heal some more before we check it again in one weeks time. Thanks for your prayers!

TodaySepo from Zambia

Sepo was such a bucket of sunshine this morning! She has come for her review and the doctor wants to see how much her knees have healed in the past few weeks. She is happy to be back here because her legs do not hurt as much as they used to and she is enjoying taking wheelchair rides and speeding at 5 miles per hour down our corridors! We are just happy she is doing well and smiling! Because they live far, they will spend the night in our hospital and leave at the break of day tomorrow. Please continue to pray for Sepo!

Mwenya stopped by CURE for his review today. He is doing very well and his hand is healing at just the right pace. Mwenya’s father has been advised to continue to help Mwenya do his hand exercises. Mwenya has been using his hand, lifting different objects, this is helpful so that his hand can get used to mobility once again. So far so good! We are looking forward to seeing how much progress will be made in three weeks!

YesterdayGordon from Zambia

Gordon left CURE Zambia for good today! Oh, we just love happy endings! After a long road that started with a horrible clubfoot and a journey all the way from Zimbabwe, Gordon and his aunt made it to CURE Zambia to start a series of procedures. Now after months in a cast, Gordon finally got to see his new foot for the first time and also walk on it! We were all so excited to see this and today our hearts are full and Gordon and his aunt are now on their way back to Zimbabwe! We praise the Lord for this success story! We won’t be seeing Gordon again for long time unless of course he comes to Zambia just to say ‘hi’.

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.
