Jesicah from KenyaToday

Jesicah is such a blast! She was literally smiling in the operating room as they prepped her for surgery. We would look at her, smile, and she’d smile back! One of the O.R. staff showed Jesicah a photo of a family member who looks a lot like her. We are so thankful for our loving and caring staff who work in surgery, God has given them such great hearts. Jesicah’s surgery went well. Thank you, Jesus! We look forward to spending more time with this girl tomorrow. Please pray for precious sleep and healing for her. Thanks, friends, for your support and prayers!

As usual, Fethia was smiling and being her playful self! The doctors decided it is time for her frame to come off and after that happens, they will put a cast on for a couple of weeks. We will see her back in the middle of September for her admission. Please keep her in your prayers for a safe return back to us!

Peggy from ZambiaToday

By God's grace, we got a chance to see Peggy after a very long time! Our Peggy is now a big girl who came in for her check up. Her doctor thinks she is doing fine because they have been told to return in a year's time so he can check her progress and how her foot is fairing! She is not on crutches nor using a walker-which is an awesome thing! She also says she is doing well in school and she has made a bunch of friends! We are so happy for Peggy and her progress!

Pemphero from MalawiToday

Pemphero had her surgery yesterday and is snoozing today! Dr. Lubega released the burn contractures under her fingers, and then Dr. Mak put k-wires through them to hold them straight while Dr. Lubega got a skin graft from her stomach to cover the exposed flesh. They then stitched it on. Please pray that her skin graft will take well on her fingers!

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.
