Patience laughed at us when we finally caught up with them as they were leaving our clinic to go home. Her mum was carrying her on her back and Patience seemed pretty excited to see us! She is doing well and her Ankle Foot Orthotics just needed a little repair.

Denzel from Kenya on 2 days ago
“We are hopeful that today the doctor will allow us to stop using the AFO,” is what Denzel’s mum told us the first time we saw them today at mobile clinic. Denzel has to wait until he is 13 years old to stop using his shoes so that the problem doesn’t recur. That means three years from now, which is not what the mum wanted but she has accepted it for the good of her son. Please pray for Denzel’s recovery!

Job from Kenya on 2 days ago
“He is supposed to use a walker but when he tries to do it, he feels so much pain in his knee,” Baba Job explained to the doctor. Job broke his hand earlier this year when he fell, slowing down any progress he had made with the walker. After his fracture was healed, he started experiencing more pain with every attempt to use the walker. Please pray for complete healing in his hand and that God take away the pain he feels in his knee when he tries to walk.

Isaac from Kenya on 2 days ago
“Are you doing well? Is there a problem?” the doctor asked Isaac. “No! There is no problem at all.” Isaac responded smiling. Isaac's dad asked about a shoe raise that had been discussed earlier and the doctor said that it would be sorted during our mobile clinic. We will see Isaac sometime in August when he comes back for review!

Thelma from Zambia on 2 days ago
Our sweet girl is responding well to physical therapy! Though she still not able walk without assistance, she is able to stand on her own. Shoes have been prescribed which will be used to maintain the correct position of the foot and they are likely to be delivered early next week. From the looks of things, Thelma has not forgotten the routine here -when it's time to go to the playroom she asks her father to take her! Please continue praying for more strength during physical therapy for our girl!

The pins that were put in during surgery have been removed and Yobo has had dressing changes and would cleanings everyday! He is responding well to this treatment, and we are going to keep him in the hospital until next week for dressing changes and observation.

John from Zambia on 2 days ago
Meet John! He's a young man from the central province of Zambia and he has grown with his foot condition all these years because his family did not know that his condition could be treated! We are thankful that they heard about CURE Zambia and now John is here with his older sister, Alidess. He scheduled to have surgery soon, please be praying for John's healing!

William from Uganda on 2 days ago
William is resting today in the ward with his mom, Hadija. We talked with her this afternoon, and she's concerned because he has developed a small cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak. CSF is the fluid that is in the brain and spinal cord, and it helps to protect the brain, among many other jobs! Our CURE Uganda doctors have put a special pressure bandage on his back at the surgical site to help. We are praying that the leak will heal, and that William won't have to have another surgery to repair it. Hadija attended ward worship this afternoon which she enjoyed. She is missing her husband and other children, so please be praying for her and baby William!

Dennis from Kenya on 2 days ago
“The boy Dennis is doing well in the Lord,” Pastor Philip told us today after taking some time with him. And when he says well, he means WELL! He and Dennis chatted about God, and then they got to the part about Jesus. “I asked him whether he’s heard of Christ and then he said, ‘I’ve heard about him.’ And then I asked about his relationship with him.” Pastor Philip took the time to share John 3:16 with him in a very personal way -- putting Dennis’ name into the verse. And it was thanks to all of this that allowed Pastor Philip to ask Dennis, “Can I lead you in a prayer to accept Christ?” And now Heaven is rejoicing because Dennis said YES to Jesus! Oh Happy Easter everyone and praise God with us for saving Dennis!

Habiba from Niger on 2 days ago
Habiba, like her sister, has also been released! She will be going home, but before she does, the doctor said that she should take the cast off and put on a new one that does not cover her knee so that she's able to bend her knee. Pray for her as she leaves for home!

Rahaatou from Niger on 2 days ago
Rahaatou will be going home this weekend! We are happy for her that she will be able to leave but sad that she will be leaving us! Today Rahaatou enjoyed her time in art therapy where we made crafts about the Easter story. Rahaatou had a bit of hard time cutting but she was able to finish!

Chisomo from Malawi on 2 days ago
Today Chisomo goes into surgery, the fourth procedure in his journey to healing. He was scared and feeling alone when he was going into the operating theatre and the moment he let go of his mom and waved bye, he was in tears again and asking for a stuffed toy to accompany him into the surgery. The surgeons allowed him to enter and was comforted by it until he fell asleep. He was assured that he would find it by his side as he left the operating theatre. As his physical healing continues, we ask you to join us in praying that his operation goes smoothly and that the healing process is good enough to take him to the next step in his journey!

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.
