Natarino is doing well today! His eye looks a lot better and he was laughing in bed this afternoon! Unfortunately we had to drag him and his dad away from the interesting training going on in the ward - the nurses and staff are doing emergency training with a dummy so there was lots of running around and doing CPR on a dummy - so he could get his cast changed! His feet are coming around nicely so hopefully he should be ready for surgery next week!
Chisomo was back yesterday! Poor mommy Fayiness said that she walked from beyond Limbe (4 miles away) and she was really tired from walking. She arrived late and Thandy says she looked really tired, so he gave her some Kwacha to take a bus back. Because CURE's services are free, the only expense for the family is travel, but sometimes even a short 25 cent bus ride is expensive for the kids we help. Fayiness is excited that Chisomo's feet are starting to come around though - please be praying that Chisomo won't need too many more casts so she doesn't have to travel here too often!
We had the chance to show Nafiou a video of the crowd at a Lauren Daigle concert praying for him the other night which he loved! He's also going through the pre-anesthesia consultation today which means, assuming everything goes well, Nafiou will be going back into surgery next week!
Meet the newest physiotherapy intern, Boniface! He's been EVERYWHERE today - mostly he's been playing in the physiotherapy department with Calvine since there's a ton of toys in there! He wandered into the physiotherapy office with his toy car, silly boy! Please be praying for him, it looks like he has a bit of a sneeze and a runny nose!

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.Chris Tomlin
