Mercy from Zambia on 2 days ago
These two are having a ride together in the wheelchair! Mercy likes to be with her younger brother Collins. We think he feels the same way because whenever he is not with his mother, he is with Mercy. Medically, Mercy would have been discharged by now but her and her younger brother Simon are still sticking around because of Collins who still needs a couple more cast changes. Thank you for your faithful prayers for this family!

Mecah from Zambia on 2 days ago
Mecah gets to continue her healing from home! Our sweet girl has been discharged, her grandmother Loveness tells us that they won't go back home in Luapula province which is over 700km from Lusaka, but instead they will stay in Lusaka at a relative's place up until January next year when Mecah will come back for her follow up review. Please pray for her speedy recovery!

Patrick is determined to walk! It's always a gift for Patrick when he gets below knee casts because they enable him to walk. We thought this time around he wouldn't be able to walk with casts because of the manipulation done to the legs ,but we have realized that we were wrong! Patrick is back on his feet and clearly has the desire to one day walk properly without casts on his feet! Please pray for this to soon happen to our boy!

The post-op recovery is going on very smoothly for Sydney! Today he went to the X ray to check post-op if the correction is in place and everything looks good! It's good that he has had surgery on both legs, this will shorten his healing process. Please be praying for Sydney's healing!

Patrick has spent so much time with us that he has knows most all corners of the our hospital campus! He has become fond of moving around and touring the hospital either in the wheel chair or walking, but when walking he just walks within the ward because he can't very far in his casts!

Mercy is getting more comfortable at the hospital! She has been moving around and we see her spending time with the other kids in the ward. Her younger brother Collins had his surgery today and he is recovering well. We are happy that we have been able to provide surgery to all three of them from one family! For Mercy, healing is a family experience!

George was lost in play in our playroom today! The wide variety in types of games and toys in our playroom really keep our kids busy, it's like everyday there is fresh activity to do for them and this is super fun! It helps the healing process go faster! Please be praying for George!

Sydney from Zambia on Dec 05, 2018
Sydney has bounced back fast after his surgery! Within such a short period of time of his stay in the hospital he has already made friends and they have been moving around as a group in our ward. In light of the coming holidays in a few weeks it has been decided that will have his surgery on his second leg tomorrow to give us ample time to observe him after surgery. Please be praying for Sydney!

Mercy and her younger brother brother Simon both had their surgeries and they are both recovering well post-op! Their other younger brother Collins has started ponseti casting for his clubfoot which is progressing relatively well. Collins will also go in the OT for a tenotomy tomorrow and after that we will continue with casting for him. Please continue praying for Mercy and her siblings!

Patrick from Zambia on Dec 05, 2018
We found Patrick playing in the corner of our playroom today. We wanted to take a photo of him without him noticing but our plan didn't work because he saw us before we could sneak one! He will have another dressing change next week, that's when he will leave for home with the rest of the kids from his school. Please continue your faithful prayers for his healing!
