Tiwonge from Malawi on Today
Tiwonge is back in the hospital and with one of the dirtiest casts we have seen! Dr. Andrew told her, "So this is what fun really looks like! You did it right!" We agree! He went on to take a picture of her cast so that he can show other kids in the future what their casts should look like when they come back. Today Tiwonge will have her cast removed and her leg washed. Next week she will being going into surgery for a tibial transfer. She is really excited to be back in the hospital and blew the camera a kiss with her two fingers! Please keep Tiwonge in your prayers as she prepares for surgery next week!

Evelista is back for physio with her cool new hairstyle! "My mom did it!" she told us while riding the physio bicycle. Her mom smiled and said, "I used to have that hairstyle and she wanted it so we switched!" We remembered we has seen that beautiful style before! Evelista was walking around the room and we couldn't believe how far she's come! She is walking properly and can put full weight on her leg without a problem. The physio team is very excited! Thank you for your continued prayers for Evelista's healing!

When we held up the camera to take her photo, she ran and hid behind the bush laughing! She then popped out, running into her guardians arms and waving saying, "BYE! See you soon!" See you soon Faith! Thanks for keeping this crazy awesome girl in your prayers!

Shukurani from Malawi on Today
Shukurani has been discharged! He is very excited to head home with his new casts! He has been in a lot of pain since surgery and still isn't super fond of the camera, but while he was walking out the door, we got a smile out of him as we danced saying "kunyumba! kunyumba!" meaning "home! home!" We are scheduled to see him again next year at the Nkhotakota clinic. Please keep him and his dad in your prayers as they journey home on this rainy day in Malawi!

Dr. James, Dr. Karolina and Dr. Andrew placed frames on both of Chifuniro's feet yesterday. Waking up after surgery, he was in a lot of pain which has continued throughout today. His mom Indiana is having a hard time watching him in so much pain, but she continues to smile as she is so happy for what God and CURE are doing for her son! Please keep Chifuniro and his mom in your prayers, that he have no more pain and for strength and patience for both of them!

Lenny Lawrence from Kenya on Today
This morning, when we went to see Lenny, we thought that we'd find him in bed. But his mom who told us that Lenny requested a walker to go see the other kids in the ward! He walked confidently down the hall. "I am eagerly waiting for the day I heal so that I can play football with my friends as well ride a bicycle," he responded to us when we asked about one thing he wishes to do when he heals. He will remain in the ward today and might be discharged tomorrow. Please continue to pray for him and his healing so that he can be able to play with his friends!

https://youtu.be/HgbY8l7zSHs JM came by to see us today and it was amazing to see his smile looking better than ever! This updated video showed that the swelling on his lip has gone down, and he was back to his normal happy self! It was our joy to see JM and 25 other cleft lip and palate kids who came back for follow-up! Thanks to our partners from Free to Smile Foundation and your constant support to Tebow CURE, we get to touch children's lives like JM together! His next step is to get his palate fixed, which we look forward to next year!

"I miss home, I miss my friends. Actually when I get home I will invite all of them to come and see me and make them understand why I will not be visiting them," Stephanie informed us. She had a wonderful night and the nausea ended yesterday evening! Thank you for praying for that! Alice, one of our physiotherapists, took her through the corridors using a walker as her Dad and Mom watched her every move and step. She is up and ready to get back home! She was discharged today and will return in January, please continue praying for our smart girl!

"I walked to school and it was not that hard!" Elleni told us at her checkup. She is such a brave girl and her healing is going on well. Her wound is healed and Dr. Tim told her to walk without her crutches and to get a new shoe raise. It was encouraging to see that the discrepancy in the length of her two legs is getting smaller! We will see her in a year for another check-up, please keep her in your prayers for continued healing and a safe return back to the hospital!

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.
