Tresford from Zambia on Today
The kids are enjoying their afternoons these days because they get to hangout in the playroom doing different fun activities. Here Tresford is seen stacking his boxes which he seems to enjoy! Please be praying for him and all the other kids in the ward that their stay in the hospital will be one of healing and also fun as they do different fun things in the playroom.

When the days are tough, And the going gets rough, There's nothing that mother's love cannot do, To encourage you to get through!

Loveness had surgery where our doctor performed a release to straighten her feet. It will be a long journey from here, but we spoke to her afterwards and although the pain is present, she is determined to take on the challenge. Please keep praying for Loveness and sending those get well messages. Thank you so much!

Tresford is a happy man! What his smile will not tell you is the pain he goes through every time there is a manipulation done to straighten his feet. He will have many more of those in the coming few weeks, the next being on Thursday next week. Tresford is tough, he doesn't let that get him down even though sometimes it affects his ability to smile. Let's keep praying for him!

Loveness is a fourteen year old 6th grader who loves to read and write. She says she wants to become a teacher to help kids do just that - read and write! Today, she passed her time coloring a page one of our visitors, Jeff, made for her. She has had severe neglected clubfoot all her life and is hoping that CURE will help her live a clubfoot free life after her surgery!

We saw a different side to Tresford today! He may be Mr. Tough Guy, but he has a super soft spot for his mom! Here he is seen just hanging out with her and giving her the cutest smiles. He absolutely adores her! Please pray that he has a restful and peaceful weekend and that he will have renewed energy to face the next week that comes.

On some days, it's not so easy to smile! Especially when we find and bother you for a photo while eating your meals- that's not so cool! Our doctor says that he will revise Tresford's cast tomorrow to see how the foot has corrected. Maxwell is very grateful for all the get well messages, they keep him and his son so happy and encouraged!

Liness and her friends love doing everything together! Here they all sitting on one bed watching TV. Over the weekend, they all left to go back to Eastern Zambia. There will be another group of kids coming back in the near future and Liness is most likely going to be back with them for her surgery. Please be praying that her bones grow strong enough so that she can handle having surgery when she is back at CURE.

Tresford is having a really good day! He has been hanging out in a wheelchair which he seems to like and he's been smiling much more. We are so glad to see him in better spirits! Please be praying for a bigger change in his legs when he gets his cast off next week.

Tresford had a cast change today. Ian, our physiotherapist is feeling optimistic after seeing the little bit of change that has happened in both his legs. He says the progress is definitely better this week. Tresford's progress has generally been slower than expected, but every week he shows progress which gives his dad and everyone watching his progress, hope. Please be praying that he keeps making steady steps forward.

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.
