Chifuniro from Malawi on Today
Meet Chifuniro! He’s just come in to CURE Malawi this week with neglected clubfoot and is having his first four-hour operation today! He has two older siblings, his sister Prisca and brother Amos. Chifuniro loves to play soccer and sweep around the house. His mom Indiana is with him and asks that we pray his healing be “a testimony to everyone!”

Lewis from Kenya on Today
Lewis is going home today and that’s exciting! We caught him unaware trying to blow a balloon and use a phone at the same time. Before he left, our physiotherapist took him through how to use crutches as his dad was sorting out the medicine that Lewis would take home. We hope to see Lewis again in six weeks time!

Lenny Lawrence from Kenya on Today
Lenny had a restful night and woke up feeling very good! When we saw him this morning, he was lying on his bed talking to his mum. We were curious about the conversation they had, so his mum told us that he was giving her a list of all the things he wants done after he is healed. “He loves playing soccer a lot. The only problem is that he falls a lot too because of his legs!” His mum told us. Among the things she was asked to buy were, a bicycle and a ball. As you can see, Lenny has some really fun plans for the future when his transformation is complete! For us, the most amazing thing is that he has no doubt in his mind that he will be healed and this gives us so much joy - thank you for your part in making this young man's dreams and hopes possible!

Stephanie from Kenya on Today
Stephanie woke up feeling a bit nauseated today. She was given something to help her with the nausea and her mum was asked to give her a lot of water. The nausea hasn’t completely gone away, but our smart friend is focusing on other things like cartoons and getting some sleep. Steph will be taken through how to use crutches today and tomorrow. Would you please pray that her nausea goes away and that she is able to eat some food? Thank you so much for being with Stephanie throughout her treatment journey!

Shavin from Kenya on Today
Shavin came to clinic today to see the doctor. His mum had a few concerns when she saw how Shavin’s little fingers and toes looked. The doctor was able to reassure her that her son was going to be well after the intervention process. His mum was also advised on how to clean the wound and we will see them again in a month's time. Thank you for your prayers for him!

Farai has come back to CURE Malawi for a frame removal! He is not so excited about going into the operating room, but is excited to finally be frame free! Please keep him in your prayers as he recovers today after his operation!

Stavin from Kenya on Today
Stavin personally seems to think mobile clinic is fun! “He likes the colors and after, the sweet,” his mom told us. Our spiritual department is awesome about giving our kiddos things to do as they wait – including giving them coloring, balloons, and maybe even sweets! Stavin is doing well and we’re grateful. He needed assessed for a shoe raise since we thought one of his legs was shorter than the other, but our expert on shoe raises didn’t think so. Stavin will hopefully get a boot/shoe made for him though and he’ll wear it with his orthotic once some things get sorted. We’ll see him next in May on clinic (if not sooner) where he’ll hopefully get more colors and sweets!

Elvis from Kenya on Today
“We were talking about his school life,” Pastor Peter explained of their conversation. “I asked if he tells other boys to hit him here!” You see, Elvis wears a spine jacket and if he was wearing a sweater over his jacket, you may not know it was there and if someone playfully punched him, they would meet something very hard! “He was saying: ‘No, he’s a good man. He doesn’t do that.’” Elvis is a very sweet boy and a good man. We like him. And he even got to talk to his friend named Elvis on the phone! Elvis is one of our Storytellers at CURE Kenya who isn’t on mobile clinic this time. The doctor said Elvis (the good man one) is doing well, so the next time we’ll see him will be at the end of May. Maybe he’ll come with stories from school about all the ways he’s been a ‘good man!’

Collins from Kenya on Today
Sometimes clubfoot is stubborn. That seems to be the case for Collins. We heard from the doctor that he may actually need a fusion (probably at the ankle). Other kinds of surgery only help so much. While this is a bummer and it means Collins may not be done with his healing journey, for now he can have a rest and enjoy life. We’ll see him in a year! In the meantime, please pray that life will go on in the best possible way for him and that when we see him again, the doctors will know just what to do!

Faith from Kenya on Today
Someone is progressing in her healing and it’s Faith! Today’s progress included getting measured for an orthotic and being scheduled to come to CURE Kenya in a couple weeks to pick up her orthotic. Next step in her progress is surgery for her other foot next year. As she continues on this journey, please pray for every step she must take – physically and medically. Pray that the pain won’t be too great and that the reward will be so much greater!

Diso from Ethiopia on Today
Meet Diso! She has arrived at the CURE Ethiopia hospital for her operation. She started her treatment with casting and today she is moving to her second treatment which is a soft tissue release on the right foot. Please keep her in your prayers for a successful surgery and speedy recovery!

Adam from Uganda on Today
Adam was scheduled for an Endoscopic third ventriculostomy with choroid plexus cauterization (ETV/CPC) today but unfortunately Dr. Peter was unable to do the procedure due to Adam having an infection. His previous irrigation was unsuccessful, so Dr. Peter had to do another ventriculoscopy irrigation. Adam will need another operation in the future. While Adam was recovering from surgery, Susan went to the spiritual center playroom and took part in an impromptu Bible study to learn how to better navigate and find things in the Bible. Please be praying for Adam to recover well from the surgery and for comfort and strength for Susan!

Patience from Uganda on Today
We saw Patience today at clinic and found that she has an eye infection. While they were at CURE Uganda our medical team gave her medicine and her eye improved, but while she was at home, she ran out of the eye ointment, so Harriet brought her to our satellite clinic with that as her major concern. Back at home however, Harriet and her husband are living in harmony. He provides for Patience and herself and she says that she is still firm in Christ, in fact she is an usher in her church! Our doctors have treated her but also have referred her to visit an ophthalmologist. Please continue to pray for her health. We hope to see her at our next satellite clinic in 2019!

Elton from Uganda on Today
Stella was hopeful they would get to go home today but unfortunately Elton had a spike of fever during the night so his doctors are running blood work and keeping him at the hospital today for observation. But all is not bad, Elton and Stella got to go to the spiritual center playroom where Annet from the spiritual department decided to throw an impromptu Bible study helping those in attendance to better navigate the Bible. Stella was one of three mothers to sit down with Annet. Please keep Elton in your prayers that his doctors will discover the cause of his fever and for them to get to go home soon!

Juliana from Uganda on Today
“For this clinic, Juliana is not so well, but she is happy. She developed a pressure sore on the surgical site and one on her foot. I am hoping that the doctors will help her,” said Lucy, during the clinic. The sores weren’t so bad, so our medical team gave her the required medicines and also advised Lucy on how to prevent Juliana from developing them in the future. She was also supplied with catheters and oxybutynin, enough to take her until the next clinic. Please continue to pray and support her!

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.
