Today’s story time with child mentor Ella came from Luke 17. Lyka heard about the ten men with leprosy who were healed by Jesus but only one of them returned to thank Him. After that, Lyka expressed her thanks to God through prayer for she has been given this opportunity to be healed. She wants to send her “Thank you!” to those who sent her encouraging letters as well! Lyka is up walking, reading, and playing lightly, and has been actually discharged today! Your prayers and support make a huge impact on our kids as they heal!

“Father Jesus, I hope that the wounds in my body will be healed, help me with the wounds on my hand and wounds on my leg and neck. Father Jesus, I hope also to be able to buy a tablet one day,” writes Kristine on her journal page. Kristine’s childlike prayer inspires us as we continue to pray for her healing even if she’s going home today. Please pray against any infection as she comes back for a follow-up on Monday!

We are so happy to see Kristine sitting up in a chair today! Gina told us that she's even walking to the bathroom with assistance. That's good news! Yesterday's dressing change didn't happen because she ate a snack before going in. So she's working a lot harder to be patient and not eat until after the OR visit. It's a good thing that child mentor Ella is around for good distraction from food and shared with her an interactive story of the blind beggar just like what is in her workbook. After the blind beggar was healed, he couldn't wait to share his story for others to hear about Jesus. We hope that Kristine does the same after she heals! https://youtu.be/txnJ7aWfFZs

Lyka from the Philippines on Apr 16, 2019
While waiting for her turn in the OR to get dressing changes today, Lyka heard a story from the book of Mark about a paralytic man who was brought to the feet of Jesus by his friends. She colored the page of that story in her book and was so interested to listen that she also wanted to have faith and be healed like the paralytic man. “I want to thank Jesus for my surgery,” Lyka told us. Through your support, you've become one of Lyka's friends who brought Lyka to “Jesus’ feet” here at CURE.

Adrian from the Philippines on Apr 16, 2019
It's summer here at Tebow CURE Philippines and our clubfoot clinic is on a roll! Dr. Shelley sees patients one at a time as they proceed to our nurses for casting. Adrian went through the same process but he wasn't up for any smiling photos at that moment because of the pain during casting. We do know that he's a strong guy and will bounce back really quickly. We hope that when he comes back for another cast change next week, the pain will become bearable as he sees that it will be worth it once he is all healed. Please pray for Adrian!

Angeline from the Philippines on Apr 16, 2019
One more cast crossed off the list today and Angeline got her surgery schedule! She will continue coming back for more cast changes until her foot is ready for an operation, but the schedule will get her to look forward to this next step. It will happen during summer time here in the Philippines, so she won’t have to miss any classes. Please pray that the summer heat will not make healing difficult for Angeline but will only give her warmth of excitement to walking with straight feet!

Arjilo from the Philippines on Apr 16, 2019
“I taped his casts because it’s about to come off! Nothing stops him!” Erlinda told us. Good thing he’s due for a cast change, which marks off another step to healing. Nurse Francis and Arjilo gave each other a hi-five for being so brave as he moved forward to becoming fully healed. As we approach this Easter weekend, please pray that Arjilo may know the healing touch of Christ here at Tebow CURE, which is made possible because of His sacrifice on the cross!

Prince from the Philippines on Apr 15, 2019
Play therapy definitely works for our children as they recover. After spending some time in the playroom, Prince’s blood pressure went down and he was discharged over the weekend! Tata from our house keeping department took over to clean up. Please continue to pray for Prince’s bones to become stronger and for him to never have any fractures in the future!

Johan from the Philippines on Apr 15, 2019
Johan was first in line at physical therapy this morning so he could spend the rest of the day in the playroom! He walked faster so he could play with cars then he decided to draw those cars instead! He’s happy to share his masterpiece with you! Please continue to pray for Johan and specifically for his muscles to become stronger!

Lyka from the Philippines on Apr 15, 2019
Lyka had a restful weekend and was extra chatty today! She was too shy at first to show us some of her drawings but Francisco encouraged here to give us a glimpse of her masterpiece. This is a drawing of herself, beautiful just like she is! She’s also ready to get out of the room, which means she’s feeling so much better! The itchiness on her leg went way, thanks to your prayers!

It was a relaxing weekend for Kristine. She showed us the artwork that she finished over the weekend. She’s still staying in bed, working on her breathing exercises, and smiling a lot more today. The swelling has gone down, but she’s going for a quick trip in the OR for a dressing change today. This step will be painful, so we pray that she bounces back quickly as she continues to recover!

April from the Philippines on Apr 12, 2019
With much excitement, April hopped up and down the ramp knowing that the next time she comes back to see us, she will be ready to fit in for a prosthesis! We have been working to get our orthotic workshop ready and we are just as excited to see her leg in the making! With her energy moving with one leg, we can't imagine how far and fast she will go when she is able to move with two legs! Please pray that April continues to see God's love for her as she waits to get a prosthetic leg soon!

Kristine is feeling better today and is able to move a little! She's excited to feel better, coloring and listening to an encouragement from God's word. She filled in colors from a sketch drawing on Acts 3, where Peter healed a blind beggar in the name of Jesus. So we encouraged her that Jesus will do the same to her as long as she puts her faith in Him. There's still many pages to be filled in with colors in Kristine's book, hopefully that will keep her occupied over the weekend! Please pray for her wounds to become healed quickly just as the blind beggar was able to get up quick!

Prince from the Philippines on Apr 12, 2019
"Can I go to the playroom?" was Prince's bright-eyed request when we walked into his room this morning. He has been waiting all week to get the playroom all to himself. The playroom has been packed with rowdy kids for the past few days for clinic, and with Prince recovering from his injuries, it was best that he stay in the ward. But because God loves our kids and hears even their little desires to go into the playroom, Prince's request was granted today! He is getting lab work done to make sure that he's set to go home and if that's all cleared, he's more likely to travel home this weekend! Please pray for Prince's blood pressure to go down and a perfectly clear blood work result!

Lyka from the Philippines on Apr 12, 2019
We dropped by to see how Lyka is doing today and saw that she's getting more talkative, which is a good sign! She makes her eyebrows talk for the most part, raising it up and down as she responds "Yes" to our questions. So far, we got eyebrows raised for "Are you feeling better today?" "Did you draw some more today?" "Are you comfortable today?" and many more! She also told us that her leg, where a skin graft was taken, is itchy, so Francisco taps her leg gently to divert the pain. Overall, today was a better day for Lyka, but would you help us pray that for the itchiness and pain to go away?

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.
