Chisomo from Malawi on 4 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!

Enifa from Malawi on Apr 18, 2019
Remember how Enifa was suppose to be discharged yesterday? She was planning to leave early this morning, but the doctors decided to review her X-ray one last time before she left and saw a fracture! It seems this happened towards the end of the frame program. All of a sudden, Enifa was in a surgery gown and ready to go back into the operating room. The surgeons will be casting her left leg and creating a window on the side of the cast for wound dressings. Her mom is a little bummed not to be leaving, but is okay with leaving tomorrow as long as Enifa is feeling better. Please keep Enifa in your prayers today as the doctors fix her fracture, and that she and her mom make it home to their family safely for Easter!

Manuel from Malawi on Apr 17, 2019
Meet Manuel! He is one of the new kids that have come to get treatment here at CURE Malawi. He is one sleepy, adorable little guy and has been in bed for most of the day today. Hopefully, we will be seeing more of him walking around the ward as he gets more familiar with the hospital. Please pray for Manuel and his mother, for the Lord's blessings and healing!

Malita from Malawi on Apr 17, 2019
We found Malita playing a game of 'bawo' alone. It's a board game meant for two players. Malita seems to be doing great and her father, who is in the hospital with her, tells us she has been peaceful and hasn't been complaining about anything lately. Since progress is positive with Malita, the doctor says she has to be given pain meds only when she needs them and not as a daily dosage anymore. They will continue with daily care and they will do lengthening and they will start frame corrections today. Please pray for Malita so her healing is timely and also spiritual, thank you!

Dalitso from Malawi on Apr 17, 2019
Dalitso is here for hand therapy today. He came in with his mom and English speaking sister Faida, who sat with us to look at Dalisto's past photos. Faida says, "Wow, that was his foot before? We have to be thankful to God for the way it is now." We were so moved by Faida's awe and hearing her immediately give glory to God. She then continued to laugh at how much hair Dalitso now has. Our physiotherapist Patrick says Dalitso will continue hand therapy regularly at our CURE Malawi hospital and come back in May to review the healing of his little foot. Please continue to keep this little one in your prayers as he continues to find healing with us at CURE and celebrates his first Easter!

Debora from Malawi on Apr 17, 2019
Debora has been discharged today and is well on her way home. Yesterday, she was clinging to her juice bottle as we had our little chat, she said that the sweet juice she was drinking was helping take her mind off the pain she was in. She comes back in about 11 days for her next appointment, please pray for Debora, for the physical and spiritual healing journey she is on!

Chisomo from Malawi on Apr 17, 2019
Meet Chisomo! Chisomo has been at CURE Malawi three times already as his treatment plan is really long. Coming in for his fourth procedure, his mother tells us how much hope she has for her son's healing. Chisomo is a quiet boy who just can't wait to ride bicycles and play some soccer with friends when he gets all better. Join us in his journey as we pray him toward full recovery so that we can reach his goals in life!

Enifa from Malawi on Apr 17, 2019
Enifa is being discharged today! She's still in pain after surgery, but she should be feeling better and silly again soon! Here is a photo of her from her physio session two days ago before her operation yesterday. She put the metal clips used for her bandage wrap in her hair. She is too funny! We are going to miss Enifa while she's gone, but she will be back in four weeks for the operation on her right knee. For now, she's been advised to continue wound dressings and physiotherapy at home until we see her in May. Please keep Enifa and her mom in your prayers for their safe travels!

Evance from Malawi on Apr 16, 2019
Evance is here at the hospital for physio today! He is walking like a champ without his Ankle Foot Orthotic's and shoes. Francis and Tadala, two of CURE Malawi's physiotherapists, love assisting Evance as he is very hardworking. Francis and Evance bonded over their small feet and always love joking around. We are so glad to see Evance standing tall and living as a new man who is clubfoot free! Keep the prayers coming!

Enifa from Malawi on Apr 16, 2019
Enifa is in the operating room having her frame removed today! We could tell she was a little anxious, but she told us, "No, I'm not scared," with a soft smile. When walking into Enifa's operation, we saw a C-Arm (X-ray machine), which is quite unusual for a frame removal. Dr. Flavia laughed as we walked in, trying to gather the words as to why Enifa had to have an X-ray at that time. "I'll explain, I'll explain!" she chuckled. It seems the wires the surgeons used for Enifa's frame were so small that it left the bolts behind when pulling the wires out of her leg. Dr. Flavia said, "Luckily, she's so tiny it's easy to find the bolts in the X-ray and pull them out."

We are so happy all the bolts and wires are out of Enifa's leg and she is frame free now. Before finishing the operation, Dr. Flavia stretched out Enifa's left knee for some pre-physio! Please keep Enifa in your prayers as she recovers this afternoon!

Andrew from Malawi on Apr 15, 2019
Andrew came in for another wound inspection and dressing today. His hand is healing well and he was very happy to see his friend Stella who is back in the hospital also. She has been here with Andrew before and their moms have become good friends. Andrew loves hanging out on his mama's back and that's how we usually see him around the ward, so we decided to snap a photo of Andrew in his favorite place today! Thanks for your continued prayers for Andrew!

Sibongile from Malawi on Apr 15, 2019
Remember when Sibo was suppose to leave Saturday? Well, that didn't seem to happen. We say it's because she just loves the hospital too much!

Our physiotherapy team said Sibongile wasn't quite ready to go home this weekend, so they kept her a while longer. She wasn't too happy about it, being the patient who hates physio the most, but was excited when they announced she is ready to go home tomorrow. Dr. Lubega told her, "Last week I said that the boys were braver than the girls, but now I say girls are braver than boys. You redeemed the girls Sibo!" Sibongile is very brave and will be continuing her exercises on the automatic machine today. Dr. Flavia said she is at 100%! Wow, we are so proud of Sibo and we thank you for all your support and prayers to help this girl get to where she is at today.

Farai from Malawi on Apr 15, 2019
Farai is in for clinic today and he says, "Please no more queue's!" We told him he should be okay since he got an X-ray last time he was here. He shared that he is currently on break from school and finished high school, so he's heading into college next. "I want to study IT," he said, and Storyteller Alexis replied, "Oh yay! You're hired to fix all my issues; computer issues of course." We all laughed as Farai chuckled in agreement. The doctors say Farai is looking good and they are hoping to get him off his crutch soon. Thanks for keeping Farai in your prayers as he continues healing!

Enifa from Malawi on Apr 15, 2019
Enifa is workin' it at physio today! This girl is never not making funny faces. She had pin-site care this morning and there were many tears, but the closer it gets to the end, the more painful it all becomes. Yes, that's right! Enifa is at the end of her pin-site care for her left knee. She will be going to the operating room and having her frame removed tomorrow. When the doctors shared the news, her mom jumped up with joy and went around hugging the doctors and other guardians. It was such a beautiful moment! Please continue to keep Enifa in your prayers and she prepares for the operating room tomorrow!

Debora from Malawi on Apr 15, 2019
Debora is back and headed straight into the operating room! She was happy to smile and pose for us before going in. "Lex! Lex! [Storyteller Alexis] I'm back! Me! Me! Take my photo!" she said pointing to herself.

Debora will be having all the metal and wires removed from her right leg today. She'll be in a little pain after, but is so excited for her operation! Please keep her in your prayers today as well as the surgeons that will be operating on her!

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.
