In the midst of brokenness
There is so much brokenness in the world. Broken homes, broken lives and broken hearts. I’m becoming more and more aware of this as I travel around the world. Brokenness is real. It’s so evident in other countries, but it’s also here at home as well. It just feels more broken outside the boundaries of my familiarity.
A mother’s story
What a mother will do for her child This is worth watching! And maybe sharing, especially now. It shows how determined a mom can be, and how much God draws close to the brokenhearted. And it’s only a couple minutes. THANK YOU for making stories like this possible. Thank you for being part of the […]
Living a fuller life in Zambia
I love to slow down to take time to get to talk with my patients, slow down to sit with them, talk with them, hold them, pray for them, comfort & encourage them, come to know their story, what their name is, why they are here, and what their biggest needs are. I am continually reminded of why I became a nurse in the first place, which at the end of the day sits deep in my heart more than any other challenge I may have faced throughout the day, week, or month.
What’s in a car?
The mission field for this Subaru Forester in not easy terrain, but CURE is using this simple vehicle to provide life-changing ministry, bringing hope and comfort in the midst of sorrow and death. In this car, these mothers learn about a Heavenly Father who says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
They told him she would end up dead
Not long after Primrose was born, her head began to swell—she had hydrocephalus. Her parents, Jefferson and Deborah, were worried. Jefferson says that people around his village told him that it is very rare for a child with this condition to be cured, that most of them end up dead.
Learning to see God
Going into college, I knew I wanted Jesus to come with me. And when I thought of taking Him with me, I thought Jesus would be there to support me, I thought He would be there to comfort me, and I thought Jesus would protect me. And, though not according to my own plan, Jesus has done these things. But, as my world collided with CURE, and as I saw people giving up comforts in order to be the hands and feet of Jesus, I knew that Jesus didn’t come to college with me simply to be there for me. Jesus came to show me the beauty of living for Him.
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.
Healing for tomorrow: CURE and medical training
The heart of CURE is to bring these children the healing they desperately need. We do this every day through hospitals and specialty programs in 30 countries worldwide. Meeting this immediate need, though, is not enough. The deficit of available medical care, combined with the growing population in the world’s most underserved countries, means we need a greater pool of medical professionals to be able to meet those needs for more children.
