CURE Malawi’s new mobile library
CURE Malawi recently received some lovely visitors from the UK who helped fund and set up a mobile library for our kids!
Clubfoot free: Bertha
“Your visit has encouraged us to keep coming to CURE.”
Clubfoot free: Faith
Faith and her parents live almost an hour out of town in a village on the outskirts of Blantyre, so we were impressed by how faithfully they came for treatment. “After Faith was born, we went straight to CURE.”
Gift: God works all things for good
In 2011, a brave little boy named Gift came through the doors of CURE Malawi to have surgery for a dislocated hip. Last year, Gift came back to visit, and we are so excited to share with you what has happened to him since then! At about the same time, Carla Reimer and her daughter, Lauren, volunteered for a day at the hospital—much like they did years ago when Gift had his operation. That’s how their story begins.
Clubfoot free: Shamira
Shamira’s father, Idrisah, works in South Africa, and Rabecca hasn’t seen him in two years, since before Shamira was born.

Fingerprints: Learning and boldness
I am grateful to have the opportunity to go into some of the villages outside of Blantyre to help with medical clinics and be part of the healing ministry. With my inexperience and lack of skill in all things medical, I am humbled that I can still lighten the burden of medical providers by taking blood pressures, doing malaria tests, fitting reading glasses, and holding children.
Fingerprints: Humility and humanity
In humility, I have started getting out the door to run again. There has been a hurdle of self-consciousness standing in the way because it’s a little tough to blend in here. I have had to get past the fact that most eyes turn toward that white woman running by.
Fingerprints: “Be strong and courageous”
Mark and I are humbled to be a part of serving these kids through CURE, even when it’s hard and everything is new and we miss the familiar.
