Precious and her mom share a light moment as they wait for Denzel to get his first casts. Precious is missing her home in Nakonde, but she is happy that her mom is here with her keeping her company and helping her take care of her four day old baby boy. Please be praying for Precious and she embarks on this new journey!

Today has been a good day for Comfort. "I am very happy," Comfort's mom said. This is after Ian, our physiotherapist reported that Comfort is doing so well that she was ready for the next step - braces! Mom, grandma and daddy were happy about the results of their visit to CURE today. Hooray for Comfort and the people in her life that are making sure she gets all the help she needs! Join us in thanking God for Comfort and her achievement with braces today! Please be praying that she continues to make a good adjustment in her new shoes with no more casts. She will back in two weeks so that we can measure her progress.

These three women are such a joy to watch! There is something special about a mom, a daughter, and a granddaughter. We see such a beautiful strong bond between Mercy and her mom Martha as they embark on this journey to get Comfort the healing she needs. They came in today, like they did last week, to get yet another cast for Comfort. Thank you for praying for this family!

Felistus came back to CURE with her baby today for his second cast. He has fared well in the past week! Pastor Lubasi took some time to talk to Felistus just to get a feel of how things are going at home. He found out that Felistus doesn't have a support system and that she doesn't interact much with other people right now. Pastor Lubasi also discovered that Felistus hides her son's condition from most people. He asked her what people say to her when she leaves home every Friday to go to clubfoot clinic or when people see casts on his legs. She says she doesn't give an answer for where she goes and also hides her son's body so well that it's impossible to see his casts. Pastor Lubasi encouraged Felistus to develop friendships with people that she can trust enough to share her son’s condition with. He also encouraged her to connect with people at her church that can encourage her and help her become more comfortable with her son’s condition. Felistus says she will lean into Pastor Lubasi's advice and we hope to hear that she has more support in the next couple of weeks. On a happier note, Felistus is excited about her son's progress and she can for sure see a change in his little feet. This is a source of joy! Please be praying for Felistus’ heart and that she would find the right people that can walk with her though her son’s journey of healing, friends that will hold her up and carry her, helping raise her spirit and keeping her believing that things will get better.

Buumba from Zambia on Sep 12, 2017
Buumba is back to CURE after a long while. This time around, she came with only her mom. Her sisters stayed back home because it was going to be an expensive trip to make with all of them. Buumba had her cleft lip surgery last week and is recovering really well. She will need more corrective surgery in the near future, but we are glad she is making progress. Please join us in praying for Buumba as she continues to heal!

Mercy and and her mother Martha, attended CURE Clubfoot clinic today for the first time because they were referred here by a local clinic. Mercy has a six week old baby girl named Comfort who has a left clubfoot. Mercy didn't know that her daughter had clubfoot until her mother, Martha, was giving Comfort a bath. After visits to the clinic, they were referred to CURE. Comfort got her first cast today and Mercy is definitely more hopeful about her baby's future after seeing her daughter get this procedure. Please be praying for mama Mercy, Grandma Martha, and baby Comfort as they begin this journey of healing!

Felistus can't stop looking at her son. His feet, even though in a cast, already look better than when she first came! This is encouraging for Felistus. Please be praying for Felistus and her son Chrispin as they embark on the healing journey!

Felistus came to CURE today for the first time. She had no idea what she was dealing with having a son with clubfoot, but coming to CURE was encouraging because the counselors ran her through everything she needed to know. She is most happy about the fact that her son's disability can be corrected and that now she has more knowledge about clubfoot than when she first came. Here, Axion our clubfoot counselor is talking to Felistus about her son's disability.

Margarete had a cast change scheduled for today and here she relaxing in her wheelchair and posing for a photo. One of the more significant things that happen to our kids as they spend more time in the hospital is how they change from being shy, timid, and ashamed to being strong and confident. God is up to something in the lives of these kids and we are confident that everything that happens, happens at the time of His choosing!

Between sleeping and waiting for cast changes and surgeries, Christine spends her time sunbathing. She says it's her favorite activity! She will be having a cast change next Tuesday. Please keep praying for our sweet little friend!

The ability to smile in the midst of pain takes an extra measure of grace! But God is faithful, He doesn't give us more than we can bare. We need faith to trust what He says, that He is good and His love is great, in spite of our trials. He is a healer! Thank you for your prayers!

Margarete is going to be in hospital for a little while longer and she will have an MUA on Tuesday. This also means more days of love, laughter and learning in the playroom! Please continue praying with us!

Margarete's sleep time look is so cute! Thank you for all your prayers so far. She hasn't been discharged today because the doctors decided to monitor her a little while longer. Long enough to receive more hugs and kisses from all of us!

Christine from Zambia on Aug 31, 2017
Today has been a 'sleeping day' for Christine. She barely woke up for five minutes. She has been feeling the pain of surgery a little more today, so please pray that she gets better. God has a purpose for our pain and mostly the pain works to bring out good things in us. All things work together for good according to Romans 8:28!

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.
