Noel from Malawi on Today
Noel loves playing with his new best bud McDonald! They do everything together! During ward rounds this morning, the doctors told Noel he is on "stand-by" as they are waiting for his rush rods which will arrive this weekend. They plan to have him first on the surgery list for next week. Please keep Noel in your prayers as he prepares for surgery!

Goodson from Zambia on Today
Next to Goodson's bed is a painting on the wall which was recently drawn illustrating the Bible story of Noah. Goodson continues to be improving and during the doctor's rounds with Dr. Maweja no concerns were raised. Please pray as we go into the weekend, he improves and that next week he will make more strides in healing!

Vincent from Zambia on Today
Our hospital setup is structured in such a way that encourages togetherness among guardians, parents and our kids. We have daily fellowship in the ward where all the parents get together to pray and worship God and for the kids there is always something going on in the playroom which brings them together and to create friendships. Impressively, we see the pattern of togetherness carried over even in the ward, like in this case we found Vincent, in the company of the kids, parents and guardians!

Leila from Uganda on Today
“I am just waiting for what the doctors say and we shall do,” Prossy said. Baby Leila is having treatment for a skin infection which is one of the reasons she didn’t have her shunt placed earlier this week. Prossy says she is comfortable at CURE Uganda and has made many friends during her stay here so far. Please remember Leila and Prossy in prayers.

Swaibu from Uganda on Today
“To tell you the truth I have started missing home, but it looks like I am still here because Swaibu’s head has started to swell. Some of the mothers that I came with have already been discharged,” Shamim said. This morning Swaibu had a brain CT scan which will be reviewed by the doctors later on in the day. He is also still on his antibiotics regiment. Please keep praying for his improvement!

Damaris from Malawi on Today
Damaris has been discharged! We plan to see her back at our hospital in June. The doctors told her she needs to have her 8-plates in for six months until they remove them. Storyteller Alexis joked, telling Damaris she also had the same amount of "worry wrinkles" on her forehead after her surgery years back. Damaris then smiled, but the worry wrinkles didn't seem to want to leave her face!

Damaris is in a lot of pain and physio was not easy, but she is happy to be going home where she can reunite and rest with her family. Please keep Damaris and her dad, Patiford, in your prayers as they make a long trip back up to North Malawi!

Eness from Malawi on Today
Eness's surgery went well, but we won't have the results back for two weeks. Eness has been discharged, and plans to be back in our clinic with her mom on Tuesday, January 29th, to find out the results. Dr. Saf removed tissue from Eness' hip and sent it out for review yesterday after her operation. Eness woke up after surgery with a smile on her face, even though she was experiencing some pain. Eness and her mom, Martha, are hopeful for the results and that CURE Malawi can help Eness' hip heal! Please keep her in your prayers these next two weeks!

Pamela from Kenya on Today
“One…. two… three” we counted all the way up to five with Pamela’s dad. That’s all the different vehicles they’ll need to take before reaching home. And there may even be a motorbike or two on top of that number that they’ll need to take! Their home is probably at least a seven hour trip from here, so as soon as Pamela is free to go hopefully early next week, they’ll embark on their long journey back on public transport. Thankfully, between now and then, our morning sunshine is providing them with joyful rays to soak up, and Pamela’s dad is being so patient and Pamela, so energetic! Please pray for smooth traveling from here on out -- both for Pamela’s healing and their actual road journey back home!

Joseph from Kenya on Today
We’re graced with the presence of a child development psychologist intern for the next few months and this morning, she took the time to hand out coloring books to our kiddos. Joseph sat coloring away at a Captain America coloring page while he waited to get a healing cast put on his other leg that he’ll wear to help stretch that foot before it gets surgery. It will also be a cast that helps aid in healing his wound. Please pray that everyday, his body will be like Captain America’s -- strong and tough -- and that it’ll heal up in no time!

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.
