Terence had a low day! He has complaining of pain and said that even at night it was the same. This is understandable mostly after the operation there is pain, but it should reduce as the days move on. Please pray for Terence's pain to subside and for a more comfortable weekend for him!

Terence has had his first surgery! Today surgery was done to correct his right foot. It was a relatively intense operation as he is older and therefore his bones are stronger. Thankfully, our doctor managed to control and put his leg into the right position. A cast has been applied, and in the meantime his leg will remain propped up. He is complaining of pain which is expected after surgery so please remember Terence in your prayers, he really needs them!

Obert has gone home! In a clear indication that his recovery is on course and after a short stay in the hospital this time around, he has been sent back home after his dressing change. His doctor said he is doing very well. He will be back in the next couple of months and there is a high chance that his left foot will be operated on, the doctor just wants the right foot to completely heal first. We captured him with his father attentively listening to what the doctors were doing and saying during their ward round. Please be praying for him as he goes back home and also pray that his right foot completely heals!

Nkandu from Zambia on Apr 18, 2018
Nkandu loves reading! We saw him reading on his bed with the aid of Else. He looked to be enjoying this exercise but unfortunately this was his last read here as he has been discharged to go home! He will come back for review in the next couple of months to make sure his right foot is healing correctly. After that heals, his left foot will be worked on. We are happy that he will carry on with his reading lessons - Else has been given him some books to go home with, we hope he continues reading at home as you continue praying for him!

Obert has come back with an unexpected visitor! When we saw Obert in the ward, next to him was a man who resembled him. As we were greeting him and welcoming him back, we couldn't resist and asked the man next to him who he was, he said, "I am the father to Obert!" We thanked him for accompanying his son this time around because during the healing process, especially after the operation, he needs more support. We then asked him what had changed because he initially had refused for his son to be brought for treatment at CURE Zambia but now has decided to accompany him this time around. "When he came back, seeing the state of his leg, I finally believed that this thing is real! I made up mind my that when he goes for review, I will follow. Getting to the reason we did not want him to come for treatment, and looking at how his legs (were), we were convinced that there is nothing that can be done to him apart from amputating the legs, that was our fear," explaines Obert's father. Today Obert went for a dressing change of his cast in the operating theatre, it was a fast procedure. We appreciate your prayers which have not only impacted Obert's life but also his extended family!

Nkandu from Zambia on Apr 17, 2018
Nkandu is back! He came in for his check up late afternoon yesterday. He was in high spirits and very happy that his leg is healing properly. He narrated to us how people back home in the village were surprised to see his leg in a straight position in the cast. "People couldn't believe seeing my leg in this position, now I am determined to see the other leg worked on,'' Nkandu proudly said. He had a quick cast change in the operating theatre and later in the day joined Pastor Lubasi with the rest our mothers in the ward for the daily ward devotion were they sung praises to God. Pastor Lubasi preached on the importance of knowing God and they spent time in prayer. Nkandu also added, "I am thankful to God for what He is doing in my life."

“I am feeling much better now,” says Emmanuel. When we met him today we asked him how he was feeling, he first smiled at us and answered affirmatively that he is feeling better. We are glad that he is showing steady progress towards his recovery. We hope he will completely be healed soon and we are certain it will happen with your prayers and support!

Lizzy had surgery today! Small cuts were made at the back of her leg to release the muscles and allow her feet room to get in the right position. To support the new foot position, casts have been put on and Lizzy's lower legs will have to be elevated to avoid swelling. We are happy that the operation went on well, thank you for your support and prayers!

It was another fun packed day for Lizzy! Most of her day was spent in the playroom. Parents of one of our co-workers, Andrew, are visiting and they have been taking time interacting with our kids which is awesome, we appreciate this generous gesture! Lizzy will be having her surgery tomorrow and she needs your prayers! Please pray that all goes well tomorrow and that no complications should arise from the surgery.

We found Emmanuel playing in the playroom! We were having our walk around the ward, checking on how all our kids were doing, and to our surprise when we got to Emmanuel’s bed he wasn’t there! We got curious and started looking around - we eventually went to the playroom room in search for him. To our delight, we found him in a group with other kids playing! This made us happy because it’s a sign that his pain has significantly reduced and there is emotional healing happening too. Thank you for your prayers and get well messages you have been sending to him, please continue as it is encouraging him!

Emmanuel is complaining of pain today which is normal after surgery! He is keeping his leg suspended to avoid swelling and as a result he is confined to his bed. Please pray for him that he recovers quickly and that the pain reduces. Also, take the opportunity to encourage him by sending him a Get Well message!

Lizzy from Zambia on Apr 11, 2018
Lizzy had a grand time in the playroom today! We were blessed to join her with the our other kids in the playroom. They were taught about how God created the heavens and the earth. They were also reminded of the love and care of our God. After the lessons and before they began playing with toys, they spent time in prayer which was super cool! You can also join in prayer by praying for Lizzy and rest of our CUREkids in the hospital!

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.
