Dereb from Ethiopia on Today
Dereb came back for his check-up today and everything looks great! Dr. Tesfaye told him this is the last follow up he'll need for a few months so he does not need to stay in the Mother Teresa house and he can go back home and see all of his family! We will see him again in the beginning of September for another check-up.

Asadi from Uganda on Today
Today we met Asadi's dad! It was great to meet him and we can tell that Asadi definitely resembles his father - it's fun to see how babies can look so much like their parents! Asadi has three bigger siblings at home, ages eight, six, and five, and they are all going back to school on Monday after the term break. Mama Fatuma is missing her other children, but is glad that her husband was able to pay the school fees and they are being well looked after. A lot of the mamas here at CURE Uganda have been mistreated by the men in their lives so we're all really encouraged to see such a good husband and father! Asadi's dad shared the get well messages we printed out for her with her husband, and he was excited to read all the notes from far away. Thank you for your prayers for this sweet family as we hope they can all be back together again soon!

Francis from Malawi on Today
Blessings is here! He's heading into the operating room for a rush rod exchange in his right leg. Even though he's had so many operations over the years, he's still a little nervous for surgery today. Please keep him in your prayers during his operation today and that he has a smooth recovery!

Chikondi from Malawi on Today
Chikondi's surgery last week went great and she has been discharged today! She giggled and hid from the camera since she didn't want to say goodbye. She's very excited to be going home, but will miss all her friends here at CURE Malawi. Chikondi's leg is still a bit swollen, but the doctors told her that it is normal and she should keep her leg elevated to help the swelling come down faster. Chikondi is not allowed to put any weight bar on her right leg for six weeks and will be seen again at the Lilongwe clinic in July! Please keep Chikondi in your prayers while she returns home and continues healing!

Manuel from Malawi on Today
Manze's hands are straight! His mom is so happy that his frames have finally been removed. She's happy, but also exhausted because she couldn't get any sleep last night due to all the crying. The other moms in the ward have all been so supportive of Manuel and his mom as he is so little and she is so young. Three other mothers waited beside Manuel's bed after his operation yesterday, and today the moms have been rotating who takes Manze for a wheelchair stroll around the hospital while Manze's mom gets some sleep. We are so excited for Manuel and his healing and can't wait for him to start feeling better soon. Please continue to keep him in your prayers!

Hassana from Niger on Today
Hassana made it back for her lip cleaning today! She was not a fan of the process at all, but she made it through just fine. Her mom knows how important it is to keep the wound clean and free from infection so she did a great job helping hold Hassana still while the nurses worked. All in all, it was a superb team effort!

Zamumtima from Malawi on Today
Zamu just read your get well messages and says thank you for all the prayers. Even though we told him before, he forgot he had such a fanbase supporting and following his journey here at CURE Malawi. He is so grateful for all the love you have shown him!

Zamu had his tendon transfer yesterday in the operating room and has been in a bit of pain today. He still wanted to give you a thumbs up for all your awesome messages. He will be discharged tomorrow and back in six weeks for his final cast removal! We are so happy for Zamu's continued healing and can't wait until he is soon walking. Please keep him in your prayers as he heads home today!

Chifuniro from Malawi on Today
Chifu received your get well messages and even though she's in a lot of pain, she wanted to give you a thumbs up to thank you for all the love and support. She said in the sweetest voice, "Thank you so much. It really means so much." She loves knowing she has so many people praying for her. Chifu is a sweet and feisty little thing and we love having her here at CURE Malawi. Your prayers mean the world to her and we are all so grateful for you being such a big part of her journey!

Enock from Kenya on Today
Sometimes people come to CURE Kenya having fought a battle we know nothing about. Such is the case for Mama Enock. Her family was very discouraging about her coming to CURE Kenya saying there was no hope, but she came anyway. Even the day her son was to go for surgery, she was still fighting battles within herself. And yet she took her son for surgery. She’s resisted becoming a believer because if she did, she'd be the only one in her family to love Jesus. And yet she chose Jesus this week, after hearing a testimony from someone in our community. “I have told her because she’s declared in front of people, I’ll give her a Bible in front of people,” Pastor Emmy told us. So today, Mama Enock was given a Bible! Please pray it encourages her heart as she continues through her battles!

Collins from Kenya on Today
Almost anytime we visit Collins bed, we notice an open Bible on his bed. Today the Bible was open to the Psalms. When we asked Shosho about if she reads alone (wondering if she reads to Collins), she told us of his ‘shule’ which means school in Swahili. Collins has been working on some ‘homework’ that our spiritual department shared with him. There’s coloring and a Bible story. We hope the story impacts his precious little heart in some way. We’re also grateful that Shosho reads her Bible because we know it can influence how she loves Collins!

Martha from Kenya on Today
“It’s more about independence now,” Alice our occupational therapist said about Martha. Martha doesn’t need to do too much therapy these days. She mainly needs to continue learning how to function more independently and she’s actually doing fabulous in that regard. She wrote the numbers 1 to 40 on a piece of paper and it sounds like one of the only things she struggles to do on her own is bathing. Alice had ideas on how to help her with that! Martha will come to mobile clinic next week with an x-ray to check on a possible issue with her hip … and eventually she’ll need a new hand splint since one of hers is breaking down. Rosemary is such a patient guardian and continues to walk through this process with Martha. We’re thankful for Martha’s progress and Rosemary’s faithfulness!

Aicha's pin removal went great and our little lady is resting up in the ward today. She says she there's no pain and she's loving all the attention the nurses are giving her!

Nazifi from Niger on Today
One day post-op and Nazifi is doing well! He's running a little hot so the nurses are keeping an eye on him, but it's nothing to be worried about. Our art therapist got to spend some time with Nazifi today and they made this pipecleaner crown! The idea behind it, if God is King and we are his sons, then we are princes and royalty! We were also able to deliver SO MANY get well messages to him this morning, driving home similar messages. Thank you all so much for loving this little guy so well!

Jans from Kenya on Today
“Who is that saying my name?” Jans asked after Storyteller Elvis called his name out while wearing a face mask in the operating room. Jans had just gotten to the OR and was a bit intimidated by all the new faces around him. When he saw Storyteller Elvis, he seemed to relax a bit. It took awhile for the nurse anesthetist to administer a nerve block but the surgery kicked off soon after she was able to do it. Please pray that Jans’ transformation for this leg will be as good as his other leg!

David from Kenya on Today
David is back at CURE Kenya for another surgery. We were a bit surprised to see David’s mum in the ward this morning. She said hi to Storyteller Elvis with a huge smile on her face. She later went ahead to say that David was going to the OR soon. Dr. Mbonisi was assisted by a resident doctor who is rotating at CURE Kenya and is from one of the universities in Kenya. David’s surgery went well and we can’t wait to see him recovering in the ward!

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.
