"Look at this! They are glitters and they are many on Doreen's dress!" Maliana shouted. Doreen is having a good time playing and chatting with Maliana who has come to visit her at her bed. They are both removing glitter on Doreen's dress and placing them on their faces! Please keep them in your prayers for them to be healed quickly.

Farai from Malawi on 2 days ago
Farai is having a good time with Chisomo from the Spiritual Department! She comes everyday to share the Word of God and chat with kids in the ward. Farai says he is encouraged with what he hears about God's greatness! "When we trust God, everything works," says Farai. Please continue praying for Farai to have an endless trust and faith in God as his leg is healing.

Linton from Kenya on 2 days ago
As if our little buddy wasn’t cool enough, we put our shades on him and he became THAT much cooler! We love his cheeks and his face and his personality! Our poor buddy is limping a bit because his prosthetic is longer than his other leg. This can be fixed, but money is tight for transport to come all the way to CURE. We’re hoping that at our next clinic on November 22nd, the prosthetic will be able to be fixed. In the meantime, please pray that this won’t hinder Linton from walking too much!

Dylan from Kenya on 2 days ago
We caught Dylan sleeping several times today which is good since he was waiting for surgery and couldn't eat. We’re thankful his chest issues weren’t too complicated and that his surgery went well! The particular surgery that he had required actually taking out some of his hip bone. This might sound a bit extreme, but by doing so, it will Lord-willing allow Dylan to WALK! Please pray that the surgery accomplishes just that and that soon Dylan will be walking!

Nivan from Kenya on 2 days ago
“I saw his wound today… it was awful,” Brenda shared with us. “I shouldn’t have looked at it.” Nivan had a dressing change today, we think just in an exam room so Brenda was able to go into the room. She told us that the doctors need to consult about the wound regarding its care. “You know the story from Ezekiel?” Brenda continued. “When God told him to speak to the bones… I like that story. It’s encouraging!” As we talked, she said, “Nivan’s wound is small to God.” This mama’s faith and trust in God runs deep. Let’s trust Jesus for Nivan’s wound to heal, just like Brenda does!

Enock from Kenya on 2 days ago
We missed a chance to take Enock's photo at clinic yesterday, but we're still so happy that he came! He needs a raised shoe for one of his legs, so the doctor encouraged his guardian to buy a shoe of their choice and then bring us that shoe to raise. Once they purchase the shoe, we'll hopefully either see them at CURE or else at the next clinic near their home. Enock did request prayer. He's going to be sitting for his exams in November, after he passes those, he'll be in high school! How did our boy get to be so mature that he's almost going to high school? Gosh, we love him! Pray for his exams with us, friends?

Chaltu from Ethiopia on 2 days ago
At Chaltu's checkup, Dr. Tesfaye removed her bandage and we took a picture and showed it to her. She was so happy to see no contracture on her neck and so were we! It had been twelve years for her with a contracture on her neck and today was a dream come true. Her neck is healing beautifully and we will see her next week for another checkup!

Chriss from Malawi on 2 days ago
Chriss is enjoying the swing this morning! It's sunny but he is not bothered at all as long as there is someone pushing him on the swing. Thank you for praying for Chriss' healing! As he makes more progress, the hope of playing with his friends with healthy hands becomes more of a reality!

Calvine checked into his physiotherapy session looking happier today than he did yesterday! He is having fun playing with the toys and with his friend Maliana.

Our boy Thokozani is so quiet today! This morning during ward rounds he was very attentive and observant to what our doctors were saying. His leg is looking good and he is continuing the needed turns on his frame. Please be praying for Thokozani to keep his trust in God and pray that he will be healed soon!

Maliana from Malawi on 2 days ago
Maliana is so energetic and happy today! She is feeling good and is not complaining of any pain in her left hand. She even tried greeting a doctor from Uganda (Short term AO Fellow) using the same hand! We are so proud of her. Thank you for your continued prayers for Maliana!

Comfort from Zambia on 2 days ago
Today has been a good day for Comfort. "I am very happy," Comfort's mom said. This is after Ian, our physiotherapist reported that Comfort is doing so well that she was ready for the next step - braces! Mom, grandma and daddy were happy about the results of their visit to CURE today. Hooray for Comfort and the people in her life that are making sure she gets all the help she needs! Join us in thanking God for Comfort and her achievement with braces today! Please be praying that she continues to make a good adjustment in her new shoes with no more casts. She will back in two weeks so that we can measure her progress.

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.
