This week Fati has been active! Her leg hasn't stopped her from moving around and having fun. Today Fati led the other kids in a song that says, "Jesus loves children". We are happy that she is happy and that she makes other kids happy! The wait for healing is easier when there is joy and that joy is being shared!

"I don't know if its the lip or what but he's been crying a lot", says Nana. Adamou came in for a bandage change this morning. He was crying until he fell asleep. He woke up when the nurses were cleaning his lip. Pray for Adamou, that he has strength to keep up with this difficult healing process!

Bachirou's surgery went amazingly! The doctors decided to work on his left leg first. They performed an osteotomy to correct his bow leg which involved taking a wedge of bone out of his leg underneath his knee. Removing this wedge created space for them to then alter the angle of his leg and make it straight. Please pray for Bachirou as he recovers from this very invasive procedure.

Saadou is here at CURE Niger! We are excited to see him and get to know him better. He was shy and stuck to his mom the whole time but he's also got a lot of energy and will be a fun contribution to our gang at the hospital!

Gloria got a visit today from CURE Board Member Marcia Lanoha. She was also bragging about how it's getting easier and easier to walk and even though she still has the cage on her leg, she can walk further now than she ever could when her legs were bowed!

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.
