To make it in this world you need two things - a smile, and a smart head. Albert has both, but he also has another quality that makes him an exceptional little boy - he is mischievous, in a good way! And it is this charm and charisma that will win your heart and make you overlook the fact that when he misbehaves it just might be deliberate. But he is such a sweet little fella and he has come to join the CURE family. Let's join together and pray for his healing!

Haggai from Zambia on 2 days ago
Haggai thinks so many things are funny, one conversation with him and you will be encouraged that life is not that bad after all. Today, he was talking about how watching soccer makes him happy, about how he thinks that the fact that he has not heard anything yet about what they are going to do about his situation is also funny and how that very few things really bother him. He is encouraging! The doctors are yet to decide what they will do for him, but they are considering a below the knee amputation. We will know soon. Please continue to pray for the process!

"Whenever I look at Chebo now, I see how awesome God is," said one of Chebo's caregivers, "when we first approached his parents and asked them if we could bring him here for surgery, they were adamant. They thought it would just make things worse and confine him to a wheelchair because according to them, he was beyond any form of 'repair' and they had accepted it. But he was confident that things would work, and now, a year later, he is able to look at his feet and praise God. These are the same feet that he was ashamed of and now, they are the same feet that take him to school. He is in his 5th grade. Take a look at how the only evidence of clubfoot is the scars the operations left. This is truly a miracle!"

"Everything is so nice here! While waiting for the doctors to decide when they will amputate me, I have been so encouraged by the pastors here who led us in worship and prayers. I am not afraid anymore, my hope is restored and I have been strengthened," Haggai said confidently. Spiritual healing is already happening and we are thankful!

Mazuba from Zambia on May 05, 2017
A few hours after it was confirmed that Mazuba will indeed be going home, we took some time to share laughs about how the journey has been to this point. We read 'Get Well' messages and shared jokes. Mazuba, in his usual shy fashion kept smiling very genuinely! He got a haircut too. Today, he has been discharged to go home. We will miss him dearly and even though he has left, he remains in our hearts and minds. We love you Mazuba!

Fota from Zambia on Apr 27, 2017
Fota had surgery today to correct her leg. She promised to count up to ten before she went under anesthesia but only made it to two and now she is laughing about it! She's such a lovely and goofy kid, and she's recovering so well that it is as though she hadn't even had an operation earlier today!

"Hello Daddy, I am coming home!" This was Constance earlier today when she was discharged. We're sure that was good news for her father and we're excited that she's doing well enough to continue her healing from home!

Mazuba's physio sessions are getting easier and easier for him as he continues to get better and stronger. God is good! Indeed, all things work together for the good of everyone who loves God!

This cool, computer loving, crazy eleven year old taught us a new pose today. She calls it the 'selfie pose'. She is too cool!

Mazuba from Zambia on Apr 26, 2017
Godfrey explained to us that he and Mazuba will stay with us a little while longer so that he can have another cast change. Although he was ready to go, he is feeling okay about this new development. According to him, the important thing is Mazuba's health.

Sepo from Zambia on Apr 26, 2017
Sepo is back for a checkup! Her legs, which had gotten perfectly healed, have started to get bowed again. The doctors here have told her that she has soft bones and it will be best for her to undergo surgery again when she turns seventeen. We'll keep tabs on her with some checkups until then!

Constance from Zambia on Apr 26, 2017
This is a very cute smile, it's also Constance's first one today! She has been irritable all morning because she didn't want thermometers sticking into her armpits, so she got upset at the world. We are just glad we got her to smile! She's such a sweet kid aside from her opinions about thermometers!

James from Zambia on Apr 26, 2017
James had an amputation on his foot yesterday. Although he was scared at first, he is really at a better place now and is ready for the next step which is to heal before he gets his prosthetic. He is grateful that he doesn't have to worry about infection anymore. We're thankful for his strength and courage!

Sometimes it's hard to take a picture of Mazuba because on days like today, he is very shy! The good news is that we will know tomorrow if he is staying longer or going home because he went for his x-ray today and the doctors will look at it and tell Godfrey the results soon. We pray for the best!

Chikuku from Zambia on Apr 25, 2017
That there is Chikuku with his mom and dad! You can't see it, but they are a very happy family, happily getting discharged after he was told he was going to be allowed to recover from home. But don't worry, he will be back again shortly! It has been such a great having him around again and we can't wait to see him again soon!

Why I Support CURE

Tomlin-video-still_web
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.
