Adrian from the Philippines on 2 days ago
Adrian and younger brother Jaycob came by today for a checkup with Dr. Shelly, and Adrian’s clubfoot is healing well. It’s still turning out a little, but he went to physical therapy to see if there was a brace available in his size which will get him turned in that last little bit. But all in all, things are looking good! Thanks for your continued prayer for Adrian!

Jaycob from the Philippines on 2 days ago
Jaycob had a hard time sitting still during his follow up, and then squirmed through his physical therapy time where Chin showed him how to stretch his feet each day. But, there were no tears this time! He finally occupied himself by spotting far off lands or planets through a piece of rolled up paper, which was the perfect distraction. His family needs to stretch his ankle daily, since it’s a little stiff. It looks like as long as he has a piece of paper and his imagination, he’ll have no problem sitting through daily exercises! We’ll see him back in three months, please pray for progress with stretching at home!

Jay from the Philippines on 2 days ago
Any of you who have been following Jay knows that he doesn’t do anything without a little flare! His casts were tough, so we soaked them in water to help soften them before removal. He took that opportunity to take a full blown bucket bath, scooping water with his hand and washing himself head to toe! Mom Cas had an extra outfit for him, so besides some water on the floor, no harm was done, and we all got some good laughs out of it! He got another set of casts, making him one step closer to being clubfoot free. Please keep praying for Jay’s treatment, and for all the other untreated clubfoot cuties out there, that they hear about the healing that’s available at CURE!

Janbert from the Philippines on 2 days ago
Janbert didn't wear a name tag, and because of that, we didn't recognize him at first! Janbert faithfully came by for his one year checkup, and told us that he’s running and finally playing basketball, which has led to some dramatic weight loss. As one of our first SIGN nail recipients here at Tebow CURE, it’s awesome to see his healing completed. An X-ray showed that everything looks “great” according to Dr. Shelley, and as long as there are no further problems, he’ll just get to continue to enjoy life as a normal teen! Thanks so much for standing by Janbert through prayer and support as he’s gone through this long journey!

Mark John from the Philippines on 2 days ago
It’s safe to say that Mark John won’t be hanging in the playroom today. Unfortunately, his hand began to swell significantly last night, but the good news is that it has stopped and went back down. “It looked like a grapefruit!” Dr. Dave joked this morning, which was a slight exaggeration, but it was a serious concern for a while. He’s diligently keeping it elevated today, thanks to some additional help from a sleeve tied to an IV pole. We’ll keep him a few more days to be sure everything stays stable. Please keep sending prayers his way!

Danielle from the Philippines on 2 days ago
Danielle patiently waited in the lobby for clinic while she got her hair done. Her long wait is now over and she's finally free from the green cast! She will now have to focus on making strides in physical therapy to continue with her healing. This is good news for Danielle and we appreciate all of your prayers through it all!

Chriss from Malawi on 2 days ago
It's time for Chriss to eat! Because he loves his photo taken, Chriss is facing the camera and smiling. His wound inspection yesterday was quick and our doctors are saying he is doing fine. Chriss has been very calm today and has quietly been moving all over the ward following his buddy Thandy (CURE Storyteller) around! Please keep Chriss in your prayers as his wounds on both hands are healing.

Calvine from Malawi on 2 days ago
Our sweet boy Calvine is feeling a little grumpy today! Probably because doctors have advised him to be elevating his right hand so as to allow proper flow of blood. His surgery went smoothly yesterday, doctors released his middle finger. Calvine is feeling well today, despite having to keep his hand up in the air. He appears not to be enjoying his meal at all, but we know that good food will help his body heal! Please pray for Calvine to heal quickly and gain his appetite back!

Francis from Malawi on 2 days ago
Francis has been discharged! We will miss having him around, especially seeing him smile after such a long time. Doctors have said his wound is healing quickly and they have put a cast to support his leg. They have also left a window in the cast for them to be able to see how the wound is healing. Please pray for Francis and his mother Christina as they will be traveling back home!

Doreen from Malawi on 2 days ago
Doreen seemed to enjoy her meal today! She is having Nsima (Malawi's local staple food) with meat and vegetables and she says the food is very nice. Doreen is feeling well today and is still continuing the turns on both her frames, and with wound dressing changes. Her physiotherapy is also right on track. Please continue praying for Doreen to heal quickly!

Thokozani from Malawi on 2 days ago
Thokozani can't get enough of reading today! He asked for some comic books from the playroom and has been reading them this morning until lunch hour. Thokozani likes reading and is excited when he find books. He is also getting better with each passing day. Thank you for keeping him in your prayers!

Maliana from Malawi on 2 days ago
Our girl Maliana is back! She came in for a wound inspection which was done yesterday in the operating theatre. Today we found Maliana enjoying her pack of Kamba (puffy round snacks) on her bed. The doctors are saying that her wound is healing. Thank you for your prayers for her!

Dylan from Kenya on 2 days ago
“She is born again, praise the Lord!” Pastor Phoebe exclaimed, referring to Carolyne as she learned that she knew Jesus. Carolyne is Dylan’s mama. Despite her hardships, she is a joyful woman who loves Jesus! Dylan is also very joyful with a fantastic smile that he shares frequently. We’re unsure of when he’ll have surgery because he has a bit of a chest thing going on, but please pray it’ll be soon!

Tariku from Ethiopia on 2 days ago
Tariku is hanging in there! He was supposed to have surgery this week, but his foot still needs more casting so the plan is for him to through more rounds of serial casting. We will see him in two weeks when he returns for a new cast. Please pray for patience with the process!

Emebet came in for her checkup and she is doing well. She still couldn't walk without her crutches and there is a stiffness in the left knee. She needs a revision surgery on the left femur and we will see her mid November when she returns for her admission.
