Hajira from Malawi on Today
Hajira's back for another checkup on her spine at Queens Hospital and possibly that MRI we mentioned. Hajira says, "I'm much better than before, now I can walk. I'm even able to walk without the walker sometimes. My back is good too. We went to 500 miles the week before last to get my AFOs. Now they want to book me at another hospital to check my back." "What do your friends and family think of your feet?" "They are happy my feet are straight. My friends who used to laugh at me are at school, since I haven't gone back yet I don't know what they'll say. I'm excited to go back to school, I think they will be surprised!" Please pray that Hajira's appointment at Queens Hospital goes well! We just heard that the only MRI machine in Malawi broke on Friday so things are up in the air. Please pray, as all the hospitals in the country rely on this one MRI machine, including CURE Malawi when we have our occasional patients with spine-related issues like Hajira!

Sharon from Malawi on Today
Meet Sharon! She's already been at our hospital for a couple weeks getting casting for her clubfoot, but we've fallen in love with her little smirk and wanted to share it with all of you! Dr. James says she'll still need several more weeks of casting before her foot is in the right position for surgery. Please join us in praying for her!

Likezo from Zambia on Today
He is back and he has showered us with his lovely smile! We were happy to see Likezo and he was equally happy to see us. He is back for his follow up appointment and is likely to be seeing the doctor tomorrow and that's when we will know what will be next for him! Thanks for your support and prayers for Likezo!

John from Zambia on Today
John had a dressing change today! This has left him confined in bed with his legs elevated and he seems not to like it because it is preventing him from going to play with his friends in the playroom! He's active boy, please pray for patience and that he'll be able to join his friends tomorrow!

Silvia from Zambia on Today
Silivia stood against our newly painted wall in the ward! Yellow is the new color for the children's ward and very soon an artist will come to draw some Bible scenes on the walls to be reminding the kids about the Bible stories they hear each day! The larger potion of the ward has been painted already and all these creative efforts are meant to make our CUREkids feel loved and cared for!

Lyela from Ethiopia on Today
Lyela is doing wonderful! She is walking well with her crutches and she is so happy about the positive changes! Last time we sent her to St. Paulos' to fix the bottom of her crutches and now that it is all fixed, it's much more comfortable to walk with them. Since everything looks great she does not need to come back to the hospital unless she has a problem. Thank you for being with her in prayer and support throughout her journey!

Filla from Malawi on Today
Filla just got out of the operating room! The doctors just went in quick to take out a wire that was shifting into the wrong position. He says, "I feel a LOT better! It was hurting before." He still has a while to go before we can take the entire frames off but in the meantime, we're happy he's feeling better!

Ashim from Uganda on Today
Can Ashim run? Yes, yes he can and quickly as he demonstrated yesterday speeding around the hospital as he greeted people! Ashim and Chemutai returned to the hospital yesterday for a check up but came too late in the day so they weren’t seen by the doctors until this morning. Ashim continues to struggle in school and has been misbehaving, according to Chemutai. Chemutai asked their doctor about Ashim's learning, she recounted what she was told, that slower learning is not just him but all of those that suffer from his condition and he will improve slowly, slowly. Outside of school, Ashim has been doing well tending to his coffee plants, playing with his friends and his memory is improving. Please be praying for Ashim that his performance in school will improve!

Abimelech from Uganda on Today
Abimelech went into surgery today where Dr. Justin performed an ETV/CPC. Abimelech is now in the ICU sitting happily with his mother! That was not the case this morning though as the once joyful, playful, and full Abimelech quickly became hungry several hours before surgery. Mariam spent that time trying to keep him from crying, she tried drumming and making noises which worked for a little while then bouncing him, carrying, and holding him. Abimelech has seemed at peace since the operation, sitting on his mom's lap in the ICU while playing with the nearby wires that are attached to him. Please be praying for Abimelech to make a swift recovery!

Gadissa from Ethiopia on Today
Gadissa is walking well and he is doing great! "Every time I see him I feel he is reborn. I'm so happy and grateful that he has a straight foot now!" Sufiyan, Gadissa's father told us. We will see Gadissa in a year for another check-up!

Natnael from Ethiopia on Today
Two of our residents, Dr.Michael and Dr.Bahiru, were examining Natneal to see his healing after his surgery as he was busy trying to find something to play with. He was moving around and playing in the examining room. He is doing very well and his wound is healing, today he had a pin removal and got another cast on for the next week. We will see him next week when he returns for a cast removal and some exercises!

Fabian from Kenya on Today
“Are you twins?” we asked Theresa and Judy as they sat together with Fabian. The answer we got was no, but goodness they are definitely sisters! They both brought Fabian for his very first clubfoot casting appointment, and we’ll be seeing them weekly over the next few weeks as Fabian comes for his treatment. Please pray that Fabian’s little foot corrects fast so we can get him in his braces soon!

John from the Philippines on Today
“No more!” John happily told us as he showed off the fact that he wasn’t wearing casts this afternoon. He’ll get another set after surgery tomorrow, but for now, he was enjoying his temporary freedom! We visited at dinner time, he’s going to have lots of energy for surgery with all the good food he’s been getting here at Tebow CURE! We’re not sure if we’ll see that cheery smile tomorrow after surgery, three of four of his major limbs will have work done, and he might be pretty sore. Please pray for extra strength as he faces the operating room in the morning!

Fidelis from Kenya on Today
Because sweet Fidelis’ tibia bone simply wouldn’t heal well enough, his amputation was done yesterday. He’s now spending the day in bed, healing even as we write. After healing, our boy will get himself a new leg and he’ll be on his way to living a life that looks brighter because he’ll be able to walk on two feet! Please pray he’ll see and understand this well during the next weeks and months as he waits for the day he gets a prosthesis!

Massaouda from Niger on Today
Massaouda has been admitted to the hospital and is ready to get her hand sorted out! Will you be praying with us for her as she goes into surgery? It's going to be a long process and this young woman will have to be both brave and strong. Thankfully, nothing is outside of the Lord's control!

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.
