Our girl is still recovering! A post surgery X ray was taken and the correction looks good for both legs, the only thing remaining is the healing which will take a couple of of weeks to be complete. Please be praying for her speedy healing! Regina will be going home for the holidays and she will be back for her follow up review next month!

Befkade from Ethiopia on Today
Take a little peek into Befekade's operation. He is recovering well and heading home already where he will continue healing up, we will see him again in a couple of weeks for an admission. At that point, he will have a cast removal and will do different physical exercises to help him for the next step - walking!

Elvis from Kenya on Today
Elvis was feeling a bit nauseated this morning so he took some water and laid down a bit to try and knock the feeling off. Impressively enough, it didn’t take him more than 20 minutes and when he was ready, he sat up and had a little chat with us. We asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up. “I want to be a mechanical engineer when I grow up!” he told us. That is a big dream isn’t it? We encouraged him to stay positive and be focused. He is recuperating well and we thank God for this!

Geofrey from Uganda on Today
“I was encouraged not to fear. I have hope the child will be completely healed,” said Teddy. Today Geoffrey went into surgery where Dr. John performed an ETV/CPC and he is now in the ICU with his mother. “I am grateful for the work the team has done,” said Teddy. Geoffrey will spend tonight in the ICU and hopefully be transferred back to the ward tomorrow. Please be praying for Geoffrey’s surgery to be successful!

Joshua from Kenya on Today
A few updates ago, we shared a photo of Joshua that didn’t look so different from this one. But you know the difference? That one was taken before surgery. This one is AFTER! God healed Joshua from his wound, brought him back to CURE Kenya, and now his foot that was once crooked is now straight and snugly placed in a cast, on its way to healing in that straight position. The God that we serve is big, and we’re grateful. Please pray that Joshua’s healing will be smooth and that he won’t have ANY MORE complications!

Isaac from Kenya on Today
And so he waits… Isaac was meant to go for surgery yesterday, but alas, he was moved to today. Thankfully -- he found entertainment in his (or his dad’s) phone this morning. We’re all for getting outside and playing and various other forms of entertainment, but when you’re stuck in the hospital in a bed, phones are a lovely distraction! And who knows - maybe Isaac will grow up and be an engineer who builds phones one day! In the meantime, let’s pray that the Engineer who we know loves Isaac and understands what’s happening to him (that’s Jesus) will be able to engineer things for him in a way that he heals fast!

Micheal from Zambia on Yesterday
All joy and smiles at last for Michael! He has been set free of having a bent foot, and not being able to put a shoe on that foot has finally come to an end! Michael's cast was removed and for the first time since he had surgery he is going home without a cast! He will need to be wearing a shoe consistently at home. We will see him again next month when he comes back for review to check on how his foot is doing. Join us in thanking Jesus for Michael's healing and we also thank you for your prayers and support!

Mercy from Zambia on Yesterday
We saw Mercy with a beautiful looking band around her head and when we asked where she got it, her answer was, "I was given by auntie Na (Deputy Spiritual)." Her younger brother Collins had his dressing change today and they are likely to leave for home tomorrow, please remember to be praying for them!

We found Abubeker in the play room coloring a Christmas star and having fun! He has been complaining of pain but he is taking medication to manage that and coloring has been a good distraction for him! Keep your prayers coming for him!

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.
