Francis from Malawi on Today
"Francis always feels very free in our family. We are very close!" Saujati, Francis's mom told us when we asked her about her relationship with her son. We always catch them snuggled up together in his hospital bed. Francis seems to love hanging out with his mom over any other activity, but he does really like his teddy bear and playing with the wheelchairs! His favorite snack is corn puffs and he loves to drink Frozy, a local brand of soda. Francis says he doesn't miss his siblings, but he was happy to talk to them on the phone the other day!

He had a fever yesterday, but is feeling much better today thanks to the nurses. He will be going in for his next wound inspection Monday morning! Saujati says, "Please keep Francis in your prayers and that his siblings are behaving!"

Faith from Malawi on Today
Immediately after surgery Faith was pretty despondent and in pain, but now she's back to her usual spunky, sassy, crazy self and says, "My foot doesn't hurt! Give me those markers!" Storyteller Avanell is leaving at the end of the month and since Faith is going home tomorrow morning and won't be back until October 9th, this is the last time they will see each other! As a going away present, Avanell gave Faith a pack of cards. Faith gave Avanell a smack on the tongue (right after this photo was taken). Please be praying for both Faith and Avanell as they travel home!

Mahamadou from Niger on Today
Mahamadou had a visit from our spiritual department today who spent some time playing, talking, and praying with him all before he got discharged! While he doesn't need to be in the ward anymore, he's still far from done. He'll have to come back for regular bandage changes and wound cleanings in order to make sure his hand heals up nicely before we can start his next surgery. Please be praying that he is diligent with these appointments and he heals up in a timely manner!

Well Habsou's new cast was short lived because at her doctor's appointment today she found out that she is completely healed up and ready to go home! Just look at those straight legs!

Sharon from Malawi on Today
Sharon has been discharged from the hospital and we just missed her! The Malawi Storytellers were out of office yesterday at a clinic, but the day before she was laughing, dancing and trying to steal the camera. Sharon was given a lollipop from the spiritual department and loved sticking her tongue out to show everyone it turned green! Sharon is scheduled to be back on October 22nd. Please continue to pray for the healing of Sharon’s foot while she is away!

Abdul from Uganda on Today
“We shall wait and see the outcome of the operation, but I'm not scared,” Esther said. After Abdul was taken into surgery, Esther and the rest of the mothers in the ward spent time in the activity room painting their nails. She sent her family texts updating them about the surgery. Please keep praying for them!

Ousama from Niger on Today
Oussama is feeling miles better today, so much so that he got himself discharged! But not before he got a visit from Mantou and our spiritual team. Mantou played with him a little and then had a good time of conversation and prayer with Oussama's mother. Next week Oussama will start his bandage change routine which will keep his hand clean and healing well!

Allan from Kenya on Today
Allan’s cast had been painted yesterday with the words ‘Jesus Loves You’ on it, so we talked of Jesus and His love today. When we asked if Jesus loves him a little or a lot, he told us 'a lot' and then we asked him to show us how much! We’re so happy he knows that Jesus loves him! Please pray he embraces this if he hasn’t already! We’ll catch him next on clinic on September 25th when he comes to have his Jesus cast taken off!

Djamila from Niger on Today
Today was an exciting day for Djamila! She had her cast taken off, an x-ray taken, and a doctor's appointment all in the space of a few hours. The good news is that she's coming along nicely. The bad news is that she's not quite there yet. After the doctor's appointment, Djamila had another cast put on and she'll wear that one home until she comes back for another follow up appointment in a few month's time!

Balkissa from Niger on Today
Balkissa had a follow up appointment today and her cast was taken off completely! Dr. Negrini (in the blue) and Rabi (in the pink) say she's all healed up and can go home. She's still walking with crutches, but those will go away both as her ankle loosens up with physical therapy exercise and she practices walking. Balkissa will be back in several months for another follow up, but until then she's free to go home and show off that newly oriented foot of hers!

Hillary from Kenya on Today
https://youtu.be/4OhmeDvkb1s Here’s our Friday surprise for you! We dare you NOT to giggle right along with our ‘hehe’, toothless grinning boy. Also -- did you notice in the middle of the video that his face changes from happy to serious in just a snap? His face is amazing! Hillary went to theatre for a dressing change today, and the news is good for him - he should go home tomorrow and come back on September 9th for some days of rehab to ensure his fingers stay fixed. Please pray for a bright few weeks for him as he waits to come back!

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.
