Chimwemwe from Malawi on Yesterday
Today we read Chimwemwe your get well messages and she was all smiles! She says, “I am so blessed by the messages I received today. Though I do not know you personally, I am glad that you are wishing me well. I have full faith that Ethel is fine together with my family. I haven’t spoken to them in a while, since my admission. May the good Lord bless you for thinking about me.” Chimwemwe is still in the hospital and is continuing physical therapy as well as the turning of her frames. Thank you for keeping Chimwemwe and her family in your prayers!

Massaouda from Niger on Yesterday
Today was surgery day! Massaouda was calm and composed as she went in, ready to get it done with. This time around, the doctors separated her index finger from her middle finger. It was a simple surgery, identifying the finger bones and then rearranging the tissue back into a functional finger shape! Massaouda is back in the ward sleeping off the meds now and we'll check in with her again shortly, Also, thank you for the slew of get well messages you all have sent her. We were able to deliver them right before she went into surgery and send her in with a smile!

Hassana from Niger on Yesterday
Hassana is a happy soul today. She is laughing, having fun, and making jokes! We are happy to see that she is enjoying herself! Hassana and Ema, from our spiritual staff, were making jokes about Hassana’s friend Aissa - about her gold tooth. Pray for Hassana that every day is as fun and happy as today so that she will not be homesick as well as make other peoples days filled with fun like she made Aissa’s today!

Mary from Uganda on Yesterday
“Feeling just good because we are going to theatre to remove some water in the brain,” said Alex. Mary went in to her sixth operation today where Dr. Justin aspirated the subdural space and left a reservoir. Once she recovers in the PACU, she will be transferred to the ICU where she will spend the night. While Alex waited for Mary to go into surgery he received messages of encouragement letting him know he was not alone and he was being prayed for. Please join all of us in praying for Mary and Alex!

Noureddine from Niger on Yesterday
Nouriddine is feeling a whole bunch better today. He got a walker to help him walk because he is getting discharged! “Today, my pain is in my heart,” says Nouridine. This is because the aunt of one of his friends here at the hospital passed away last night. “I know how hard it is to be away from home. I can’t imagine losing someone in the condition I am now,” said Nouriddine. Please pray for these people that come from all over Niger for healing. It is tough, but they have made this place their family.

Chikondi from Malawi on Yesterday
Chikondi seems to have disappeared again, but this time it's because he has been discharged! He is headed to Queens Hospital to meet with the pediatric cardiologist before he comes back for surgery, he seems to be having heart troubles. After the doctors receive his results, they will schedule him to come back to CURE for his operation. His buddy Blessings really misses him, so please keep both Chikondi and Blessings in your prayers!

Joyce from Malawi on Yesterday
Joyce loves her new friends at the hospital - Alice, Rachael, Deborah and Cynthia! Today we caught them all on Joyce's bed with big smiles hugging each other! It was the cutest thing! They all loved having their pictures taken and were being super goofy! Their laughs made the other children and guardians laugh. What a fun day of shenanigans!

Yitagesu was the popular kid today! He was playing a mobile game on his mother's phone and Zakir and Tadesse were giving suggestions while watching him play! He is getting along well with everyone in the ward!

Mitchelle from Kenya on 2 days ago
“She was telling me she’s gone through a lot,” Simon our marketing director told us this morning after chatting with Sarah. Simon goes for visits in the ward and takes time to relate to patients and their parents. Sometimes you catch him praying with them too! “She was basically telling me she loves the child so much,” Simon continued. “The husband loves the child so much. That’s when I got touched and said, ‘let me just pray with them.’ She’s so beautiful.” Mitchelle really is so beautiful and clearly loved. Her dad will hopefully come to visit today and although she won’t get to go home quite yet because of some swelling, we know she’s in good hands being watched over by her mama and our CURE staff. Please pray for her swelling to reduce soon!

Chris from Kenya on 2 days ago
Well this is a rare sight - Chris not moving (his friend Gift was in a similar state post-surgery)! Surgery does a number on one’s body and Chris is no exception. He needs rest like anyone else, but his Jesus is healing him even as he rests. He needs an x-ray of his hip but we’re going to wait for Monday for that because getting up might be a bit difficult for him at this point. Please pray for rest and continued healing from Jesus for Chris this weekend!

Evelista from Malawi on 2 days ago
Evelista stopped in today for her physio session and to collect all of her pictures throughout her healing journey during her time here at CURE Malawi! Her dad came with her today and was cheering Evelista on while she was posing for her after photos. We are so happy to see her walking with her straight legs! Evelista will be back again on October 12th. Thank you for your constant prayers as Evelista continues her physio sessions!

Yuri from the Philippines on 2 days ago
We wish we can just copy and paste yesterday's post to this one. Yuri did the same thing as we came to visit today, crying but gladly waved goodbye as we stood on the doorstep. We weren't the only ones whom he said goodbye to today as well. Yuri got discharged and left his favorite friends at the hospital behind. Mr. Truck and Mr. Car will reunite with him again for a follow-up in a couple weeks! Please keep Yuri in your prayers!

Dominico from Uganda on 2 days ago
“The change I have seen is there is no pain because what has been paining they have sealed it,” said Sharon. This morning Dominico’s doctors told Sharon they have four more days in the hospital as he finishes his antibiotics. “Maybe by that time the child will have gotten healed completely,” said Sharon. Her plans for the weekend include washing clothes, spending time with her friends in the ward, and going to the chapel service. “I learned that if you trust God, He will answer your prayers,” said Sharon. Please be praying for Dominico that in four days he will get to go home and for him not to develop hydrocephalus.

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.
