Bachirou from Niger on Today
Bachirou does not say much but we are happy that he is doing well. He speaks when talked too and he has shown his gratitude for his surgery. He is happy that this is the start of a better life. Please pray for him as he continues to recover and pray that he stays as optimistic as he is now!

Fati from Niger on Today
This week Fati has been active! Her leg hasn't stopped her from moving around and having fun. Today Fati led the other kids in a song that says, "Jesus loves children". We are happy that she is happy and that she makes other kids happy! The wait for healing is easier when there is joy and that joy is being shared!

Zabeirou is feeling better! We found him smiling and playing with a nurse, it was encouraging to see him having a good time and in a good mood after all the healing he has gone through. He will be discharged soon, please pray for complete healing!

Eness from Malawi on Today
Meet Eness! She's just come in today for her first operation. We met her at our Monday morning clinic earlier this week and her mom Martha told us, "This is our first time here! We really like it!" She has now been admitted and is having surgery on her hip. The surgeons will be doing a hip biopsy and taking a sample of the tissue to run tests on and find out the true problem. Eness speaks really great English and has the sweetest smile! While waiting to go into the operating room, she told us she wasn't scared for surgery. She later shared with us that her favorite color is pink and she loves rice and fish! Please pray for Eness' operation and that she will find healing here with us at CURE Malawi!

Goodson from Zambia on Today
There was no better way of starting Goodson's day than being handed a home made 'get well soon' card! He is holding on to it like a little treasure! This means a lot to him, we want to thank everyone making efforts to send cards to our CUREkids. Medically, Goodson is stable and the discomfort he was experiencing has reduced, please be praying for him!

Pamela from Kenya on Today
“What I love about Pamela, she’s a girl who’s very social and very open,” Pastor Emmy said. “If she has a need, she’ll tell you!” Pamela spends her days in the playroom when she’s able which gives Emmy time with Pamela. Pamela’s a bit young for deep conversations, but she’s still in an environment where there’s joy and love and Jesus abounding. Please pray that as she spends her last few days here before her wound check and hopeful home-going, she’ll absorb as much of that as she can!

Joseph from Kenya on Today
We found out from Pastor Emmy at least part of the reason Joseph didn’t go for surgery yesterday - somebody had shared a little bit of cake with him! We love cake around here and think it’s meant for sharing, but on the day of your surgery when you’re not meant to eat a thing, it’s something that must be saved for later! Good thing is, Joseph’s surgery still happened, even if it was today. Because Joseph’s clubfoot is a result of his spina bifida, he will most likely have to wear orthotics the rest of his life lest his nerves cause his clubfoot to return. While this is a bummer, it’s a small price to pay for the ability to walk! Pray for our boy as he heals and learns a new normal!

Monicah from Kenya on Today
“We are trying to make Monicah to become beautiful,” Pastor Emmy told us as she painted Monicah’s cast. “They complimented me on my hair this morning, so I told them I am a child of God, so I should always be beautiful.” There’s something to be said about representing God in the way you look and giving Him your best even in that. “They should be shining!” Emmy said of children of God. Let’s pray for Monicah as she goes back home today -- that she will shine for Jesus!

Jesse from Kenya on Today
“If he was having pain, I would be worried,” physio George explained to us today of Jesse. Jesse’s got a bit of a limp going on, but thankfully -- no pain. Therefore, George doesn’t need to be worried and neither does Jesse. Jesse is a kid -- he loves playing. And his mom told us he loves jumping too. He’s able to function even with his limp. He’s got a bit of a leg length discrepancy, so that contributes to the limp. He was assessed for a shoe raise and once Jesse’s mom brings a shoe to them to raise, they’ll make him one. He’s schedule to come for physio in March, so we’ll catch Jesse at that time if not before!

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.
