Hafizou from Niger on Today
Hafizou's personality was a little muted today as he recovers from his surgery, but our art therapist gifted him with beanie baby dog and he pulled a book on trains from our ward library so he's doing alright!

Souleyman from Niger on Today
This little man was hurting today. Our nurses and his mom are working together to make him feel as comfortable as possible, but it's still rough. Please be praying for him and we're passing your get well messages on to him to give him a few glimpses or encouragement!

Lovemore from Zambia on Yesterday
Lovemore is back! He has come back on an exciting note, Lovemore and his mother joined coworkers and visitors from Crossroad Bible Church to sing and dance together in our chapel during the morning devotion. To honor Lovemore and his mother's presence, we sung a gospel song from their country in their local language which was very exciting for them. Lovemore is scheduled to have surgery next be praying for him! https://youtu.be/e4nofxj1w3U

Julius from Kenya on Yesterday
Julius has returned! We haven’t seen him in way too long, but thankfully, now we have! And it’s the last time to see him in an ex-fix because he had it taken off today! After doing some at-home cleaning of the sites where the ex-fix was, we’ll see Julius in a couple weeks to make sure he’s continuing to heal well. Pray for him!

Maureen from Kenya on Yesterday
Twins are twice the fun because instead of one person getting baby snuggles at a time, two get the snuggles at the same time! Storyteller Elvis and Social Worker Chege were enjoying some playtime with Maureen and Mitchelle. Mitchelle has had her surgery, but Maureen will have to wait just a little bit longer for hers because her surgery will take many hours and we need to make sure our schedule is ready for that. We’re so glad these babies have been loved on lots this week!

Ryan from Kenya on Yesterday
Today is going home day for Ryan which means his dad came to pick him up! During his time visiting CURE Kenya, Ryan’s dad caught up with Pastor Philip. “I first appreciated him for coming to see the family,” Pastor Philip told us. They talked a bit, including about salvation, and they prayed too. Please pray for him as he considers saying yes to Jesus. And pray for Ryan and his mama too!

Maclifa from Malawi on Yesterday
Maclifa's surgery was a success and his hand is healing straight! Today he has the biggest smile on his face and is really liking his new cast. Maclifa will have a wound inspection next week, but while he's hanging out around the kid's ward he plans on playing lots of Bao (board game) with his new friends. Please join us in continuing to keep Maclifa in our prayers while he patiently waits for his wound inspection!

Simba from Uganda on Yesterday
"Nobody messes with Simba!" - during morning rounds Issac, our physical therapist, was laughing with mama Benna about how chubby Simba is, and how his name means lion. She told us that his dad picked out his name, and it seems to fit! This little lion is doing so well that he and Benna get to head home today! He'll get his stitches out at a clinic near their home, and then come to see us in a few weeks for a checkup. Benna asked us to please thank everyone for all their care and for their prayers. The bible tells us that "the righteous are as bold as a lion", so we're praying that Simba would live that out as he grows up!

Faith from Uganda on Yesterday
Faith's surgery went well! She spent a calm night in the ICU, with mama Beatrice nearby. Dr. Emmanuel and the medical team checked on her this morning during rounds, and said she's able to move to the main ward today. She'll be on antibiotics for the next couple weeks to prevent infection, which is standard for babies who get this type of surgery. We're thankful she's doing so well and thank you for your prayers!

Enala from Malawi on Yesterday
Enala is going home! She will be able to walk while she is away and will continue bandage changesd at her local clinic. Before leaving, she was given one balloon to play with now and another to take home that she hid in her hand tucked into her mom's back. Enala is super excited about her balloon and loves bouncing it against her little head. We're glad she's slowly warmed up to the hospital over time and hope she's not so scared the next time we see her in January 2020! Please keep Enala in your prayers while she recovers at home.

Yuri from the Philippines on Yesterday
Yuri received some good news today! 1.) He learned that he is being prayed for and cheered on by a lot of people! and 2.) He was told that he can now go back home and be reunited with his family! “Thank you so much,” was all Elsa could say to people who sent Yuri get well messages and prayed for them and that includes you! We will see them again in a month to check on his progress!

Krixia from the Philippines on Yesterday
We were surprised to see Krixia not in her bed and much more seeing her with red lips and rosy cheeks this morning! “She insisted that I buy her some nail polish and cosmetics yesterday and so I did,” Christine told us. Aside from these beauty treats from Mom, Krixia was also in for a treat when Child Mentor Patricia read her your get well messages! She was discharged today and we will check on her progress next month! Your words of affirmation and prayers really do a whole lot in speeding up our patients’ recovery and with that, we are thankful!

Norhaya from the Philippines on Yesterday
We celebrate with Norhaya today for having completed her serial casting! She had one more cast change today and then she is all set and ready for her surgery! We cannot wait to hang out and spend more time playing with her as she stays with us for a few days next week!

Aris from the Philippines on Yesterday
“Please make it fast,” Aris told Maam Meja during his cast removal while in tears in clinic today. “The sound reminds him of the cutter his dad has at home which he is terrified of,” Mommy Rosalie told us. Despite feeling afraid, Aris clung tight to Rosalie and persevered like a champ! They were relieved to hear that Aris will no longer have to wear a cast and he can now start doing some stretching and walking exercises! They will be back next month to have his own brace measured to keep his foot upright and in place!

Souleyman from Niger on Yesterday
Even though Souleyman has been into surgery a few times before, this one seemed a little rougher than normal. He wasn't quite his usual, joyful self and was a little afraid and apprehensive. Our staff did a great job at keeping him comfortable as they're fully aware it's never a fun process. The good news though is that his surgery went great! Since the curve in his leg was only small at this point, it wasn't difficult to go in and correct the curvature. Souleyman has a big leg cast on at the moment, but a nice straight leg underneath the plaster!

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.
