“Sometimes we can only see right around us, so I was fearing so much. But God knew what was in the future,” Nancy recounted as she explained her journey with CURE. Nancy Wanjiru, now 22 years old, was the first patient I ever met in Kenya. She had come to the hospital for a bad infection on her previously corrected clubfoot. We spent each afternoon at her bedside talking, reading, and being silly. She taught me my first words of Swahili, “kuja hapa,” meaning “come here.” She said it would be useful for me so I could get the kids to come to me, but I think, now, about all the times Jesus called His people to return, to follow, to come to Him. For Nancy, He called her over and over until she finally answered.

As the activities of the Burundi Clubfoot Program continue to increase, we had a blessing of a new worker who will be our Counseling Coordinator. Her name is Angelique Iribagiza, and she started in April. As it is the culture and the value in CURE International, after her recruitment she benefited with a two weeks training in Rwanda.

The ritual of healing

As a photographer, I love the lighting in surgery. The bright surgical lights, shining on white gloves, dark skin, and red blood, is quite dramatic. It’s like studio lighting, in a way. The rest of the room is in reality fairly bright, but in comparison to the spotlight, in camera, everything else fades into darkness. There’s a drama, a mystery, some monumental implication of what is happening. A life is being changed.

Life Lessons in Lusaka

It is so clear to me that God has chosen to write these kid’s stories in this way because they are using their healing to bring glory to Him. There is no one who understands this better than Tina’s mom, Peggy. At seven months old, Tina has had three failed shunts for her hydrocephalus. She was in the hospital for six weeks, battling infections, before finally receiving surgery. Despite the worry about her daughter’s health and the financial strains of not being able to work while she was staying at the hospital, Peggy was one of the most joyful women I have had the pleasure of meeting.
