Promise from KenyaToday

Promise loves to play, and two days confined in a bed is not what any young boy his age would want. At least he is not in pain so we thank God for that, but we're continuing to pray that the swelling will go down as soon as possible so that he can be re-casted and finally be out of bed, even if he will be on crutches. This young man loves tea and today we caught up with him at tea time as he was enjoying a cup of fresh Kenyan tea from the hospital cafeteria. Kindly, keep praying for him as he continues to recover!

Our little lady stopped by for a check up today and she is doing great! The doctors said her leg is at the perfect angle now. She'll be back in about another month for another check up and an xray!

Boniface from MalawiToday

Boniface is going home today! We're gonna miss his adorable little giggle, grin, and the cute way he sticks out his tongue! We were trying (very unsuccessfully) to teach him how to say "bye bye" for a video for you all and finally gave up and went back to our office to work... but he wanted more fun time with CUREkids Coordinator Avanell and the camera! It's hard to get any work done when you're being chased down by this cutie! He was making some pretty adorable faces through the physio door before he finally ran off to get his mom to let him in! We're gonna miss him bunches but he'll be back for his final surgery on April 9th, so stay tuned! The YouTube link is at https://youtu.be/goZcG8TPKDI.

Stelia's discharge note hasn't been written yet today so she's been hanging around with some new friends! These girls are all here and haven't been admitted to the hospital yet, so we're not sure of their names or stories, but we look forward to getting to know them better and we're glad Stelia has already made friends and introduced them to the hospital!

Fadima stopped back in and we could not be happier to see this little smiling face and how well she's doing!

Joseph from MalawiToday

Jojo is toddling around today and blessed us with a grin while he was hanging out with his fellow syndactyly pal Boniface! Over the past few weeks, we've had three little boys with syndactyly, Calvine, Boniface and Joseph, and Calvine left two days ago and now Boniface is leaving today - we're hoping it will be Jojo's turn to go home soon too!

With all of these expressions, we're pretty sure that when the whole healing process is done, Baraou will probably be a "hand talker" as well!

And today Zeinabou is 100% back to her old self with that giant smile and mischievous attitude!

Nafiou from NigerToday

Nafiou's surgery unfortunately got canceled today. We found that he has a small infection which isn't a huge deal all by itself, but it does mean he can't go in for surgery. We're treating the infection and, once that's taken care of, he'll move on to the next step to his healing!

Continuing with the vehicle theme this week, Ahmad checked out the newest addition to our playground today, the mini-bus! He called all aboard and claimed we were driving to America.

Tarikua from EthiopiaToday

This is the first time we've seen Tarikua's smile after her surgery! She is happy, healing well, and she got to go back home today! We will see her in a couple of weeks for a checkup. Please keep her in your prayers for a speedy recovery and safe return back to us!

We pushed Donata around in her wheelchair today! She's always a bit teary after pin cleanings and turns in the morning, but seems to bounce back pretty quickly and be as giggly as always afterwards! Today we brought her up to physio (there's fun ramps to 'go fast' on), and she got to meet Edson, a little boy from Mozambique who's having physiotherapy, and then we went outside to say 'hi' and pose with Precious! They were both making some pretty funny faces!

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.
