John from Zambia on 3 days ago
Meet John! He's a young man from the central province of Zambia and he has grown with his foot condition all these years because his family did not know that his condition could be treated! We are thankful that they heard about CURE Zambia and now John is here with his older sister, Alidess. He scheduled to have surgery soon, please be praying for John's healing!

William from Uganda on 3 days ago
William is resting today in the ward with his mom, Hadija. We talked with her this afternoon, and she's concerned because he has developed a small cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak. CSF is the fluid that is in the brain and spinal cord, and it helps to protect the brain, among many other jobs! Our CURE Uganda doctors have put a special pressure bandage on his back at the surgical site to help. We are praying that the leak will heal, and that William won't have to have another surgery to repair it. Hadija attended ward worship this afternoon which she enjoyed. She is missing her husband and other children, so please be praying for her and baby William!

Dennis from Kenya on 3 days ago
“The boy Dennis is doing well in the Lord,” Pastor Philip told us today after taking some time with him. And when he says well, he means WELL! He and Dennis chatted about God, and then they got to the part about Jesus. “I asked him whether he’s heard of Christ and then he said, ‘I’ve heard about him.’ And then I asked about his relationship with him.” Pastor Philip took the time to share John 3:16 with him in a very personal way -- putting Dennis’ name into the verse. And it was thanks to all of this that allowed Pastor Philip to ask Dennis, “Can I lead you in a prayer to accept Christ?” And now Heaven is rejoicing because Dennis said YES to Jesus! Oh Happy Easter everyone and praise God with us for saving Dennis!

Habiba from Niger on 3 days ago
Habiba, like her sister, has also been released! She will be going home, but before she does, the doctor said that she should take the cast off and put on a new one that does not cover her knee so that she's able to bend her knee. Pray for her as she leaves for home!

Rahaatou from Niger on 3 days ago
Rahaatou will be going home this weekend! We are happy for her that she will be able to leave but sad that she will be leaving us! Today Rahaatou enjoyed her time in art therapy where we made crafts about the Easter story. Rahaatou had a bit of hard time cutting but she was able to finish!

Chisomo from Malawi on 4 days ago
Today Chisomo goes into surgery, the fourth procedure in his journey to healing. He was scared and feeling alone when he was going into the operating theatre and the moment he let go of his mom and waved bye, he was in tears again and asking for a stuffed toy to accompany him into the surgery. The surgeons allowed him to enter and was comforted by it until he fell asleep. He was assured that he would find it by his side as he left the operating theatre. As his physical healing continues, we ask you to join us in praying that his operation goes smoothly and that the healing process is good enough to take him to the next step in his journey!

Djamila will be going home tomorrow! Just a week ago she was crying that the doctors did not release her and today she is overjoyed! She will be going home for two months. Please pray for her as she travels home that they make it safe there and that everything goes well until we see them next time.

Mahamadou from Niger on 4 days ago
Mahamadou is back in the ward today. Finally, the day where his hand gets released from his stomach is here! As you know, Mahamadou underwent a procedure where the doctors put his hand in a pouch formed from the skin on his stomach so that his skin would grow over the top of his hand instead of doing a skin graph. Today the doctors took him in the OR and released his hand! Please be praying for his recovery process to be free from infection!

Yahaya from Niger on 4 days ago
Yahaya is still around but he is starting tire of hospital life. He wants to go home to his friends and to show off his new leg! Today in art therapy he started getting a bit too competitive for the kids to handle. We reminded him to be less competitive for our smaller kids! He's got a lot of bottled up energy because he is still using crutches and still has the cage on. He will soon see the doctor. Pray for him so that when he sees the doctor everything will be healed enough so that he can go home, see his family and show off God's healing in his leg!

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.
