Tsehay from Ethiopia on Today
Tsehay came back for her check-up today and she is doing well. The wound from her operation is healing well, but it still needs some time to be completely healed. Due to the time her wounds need and some other obligations, Tsehay is going to head home for a couple months to be with her family and to allow her healing to happen fully. After the time is up, she'll come back to CURE Ethiopia and we'll start talking about what is next for her!

Mekiya from Ethiopia on Today
Mekiya is doing great! Her wrist is showing good progress and our physical therapist showed her several different exercises she can do at home to get it up to speed. She also got a splint to wear at night time in order to keep everything straight. We will see her again in a couple of months when she returns for another check-up! Please keep her in your prayers!

Rahmet from Ethiopia on Today
We found little Rahmet in bed waiting for her turn to be called to the operation room this morning. Today she is having plates inserted in both her legs which will help control the growth of her various leg bones in order to help them straighten themselves out. Please keep this sweet one in your prayers for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery!

Esther from Kenya on Today
When we asked Esther to go hug her mom, this was her reaction and the reaction of another mama! Esther had an audience for her little photo shoot this morning. We had to take a few different kiddos photos, so we took them all out at once and the mamas joined in on the fun. We’re looking forward to getting to know Esther and the rest of the mamas and kiddos more this week as they spend time with us at CURE Kenya!

Feyisa from Ethiopia on Today
Craft time! The children in the ward get to make different flowers today. They cut their favorite colors out of a magazine and made beautiful flowers gluing it to paper! Feyisa decided to go with the color red for his flower! He is doing well and continuing with his frame turning and cleaning everyday all while keeping busy with the activities we plan for him!

Eliud from Kenya on Today
We’d like to introduce you to Eliud’s support team for the week. We all went outside to take pictures of the kids, including the mamas. The kids are Eliud, Esther, and Rolly. And the fun thing about Kenyan culture is that you can call the moms by their children’s name. So there’s Mama Eliud, Mama Esther, and Mama Rolly. They’re all in the same bed cube in the ward, so they’ll be walking through the process of healing together. Pray for each one of them as they do this together!

Dorcas from Kenya on Today
Dorcas is finally getting her cast changed today! As she and her mom waited for this, her mom snuck her fingers in Dorcas’ splint and rubbed her feet and toes to relieve the persistent itches. We’ve been watching how much Mama Dorcas’ cares for her daughter, and it’s truly beautiful. Pray that these two will get to go home tomorrow!

Alisina from Malawi on Today
Alisina is finally smiling! It's taken her a while to get adjusted to the hospital and the other kids, especially since she doesn't speak the local language. This morning she was memorizing bible verses in Chichewa while playing with her new friends, which is super impressive since Portuguese is very different. Her friends were super encouraging and Alisina sounded just like a local. We're glad to see Alisina having so much fun!

The doctors says she'll have another wound inspection today and they'll continue to plan this week for what's next. Alisina and her mom are prepared to be here a while since they come from so far, but are hopeful for her healing and to go home soon. Thanks for keep Alisina in your prayers while she continues healing with us here at the hospital!

Lonje from Malawi on Today
Lonje has been discharged! Before he left, he wanted to grab a photo with all the friends he's made at the hospital. This group of boys instantly became the best of friends. We're sure Lonje will always remember his new buddies and he hopes to reunited with some of them during his next visit to the hospital in October. Thanks for keeping Lonje in your prayers during his time here with us at CURE Malawi!

We’re so glad our friend Harrison is back with us again for surgery on his second foot. We’re thankful he’s come with his usual fun personality too. Pray for him this week!

Athiel from Uganda on Today
Baby Athiel is here and getting ready for surgery! Because treating her spina bifida has caused fluid to build up in her brain, she'll need another surgery to help things balance out. Thankfully, our CURE Uganda neurosurgeons are world leaders in just the type of surgery she needs! Mama Nyidhuar met with the doctors during morning rounds today, and one of our staff members was able to translate their instructions into Arabic for her - we're so thankful that God provides just what we need, even someone who speaks Arabic! She and baby Athiel attended morning chapel and enjoyed the singing! There are a few other mamas from South Sudan here this week as well, so we're thankful that they can develop friendships and encourage each other!

Cyndi from the Philippines on Today
Cyndi was pumped to finally meet our friends from the Limb Kind Foundation! Cyndi met Nicole, one of the mentors who is also an amputee. Nicole encouraged Cyndi that she can do things with no limitations despite her limb loss. They both hung out and played while Cyndi was waiting for her turn to be assessed and measured for a prosthesis of her own! Cyndi also introduced a song to Nicole and they sang together “Thank You, Lord”. Truly, the support of Limb Kind Foundation and people like you is something Cyndi is extremely thankful and grateful to God for!

Philip from the Philippines on Today
Surely, there are no accidents with God and Philip’s arrival at Tebow CURE was just in time when our partners from Limb Kind Foundation came to provide prostheses for our patients with limb loss. Over the weekend, Philip was able to hang out with them and got to meet Rudy, one of the mentors from the Limb Kind Foundation who also suffered limb loss. Rudy spent time with Philip, showing him that he can live life with no limits despite his physical condition. They played basketball and catch while waiting for Philip’s turn to be assessed and measured for his own prosthesis. We are glad that God provided people and partners like Rudy and Limb Kind to come alongside our mission and show God’s power to hear and answer prayers in ways unimaginable!

Jhon David from the Philippines on Today
Jhon David has had his fourth cast change today and switched from his regular green-colored casts to purple ones! So far, Jhon David’s feet are responding well to the weekly casts. As the cliche goes, “Good things take time” and we admire Jhon David and Roliza’s perseverance as they patiently pray and wait for Jhon David’s complete healing. Please include Jhon David and Roliza in your prayers for their family back home and that they will also be safe while they are away.

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.
