My CURE trip: There is no one like Jesus
There is no one like Jesus. We can search far and wide, up and down and around the world, but we will find no one like Jesus Christ. This truth was evident to me during my time in Zambia. It was extremely impactful meeting children served by CURE.
Called to serve: The struggle is real
I don’t know about my other CURE U friends, so I’ll speak for myself when I say that sometimes it’s really, really hard to feel like I’m making an impact as a college student. When I returned to the States, I was legitimately miserable. I desperately missed the scorching heat of Malawi: the blazing sun reflecting off […]
My CURE trip: Changed in Zambia
Nine American college students, our trip leader, and our driver set off in a 14-passenger van to a rural village in the Choma province of southern Zambia. We were filled with excitement and had no clue as to what we were getting ourselves into. At this point on the trip, we were a week deep into Zambian culture, and we were incredibly accustomed to the idea of “Zambian Time,” which essentially means you will find out what you’re doing roughly five seconds before it happens.
My CURE trip: A battle fought with bubbles
A week after I took my last final exam for the school year, God sent me to the Philippines and changed my life forever. During my three week stay in the island nation, I met a lot of children: children that were disabled, children that were poor, and children that didn’t have any parents. I met children who don’t eat every day, children that have no way to get to school, and children that could play tag for hours despite the heat and the humidity.
My CURE trip: Serving God abroad in Kenya
On September 11, 2015, God told me that I was going to Africa to complete one of my major child life courses. I knew it was God telling me this because it is unlike anything I’ve ever felt before in my life.
My CURE trip: Finding a place in the Philippines
Balloons, bubbles, giggles, and high fives—these were the noises wafting through the halls of the Tebow CURE Hospital in Davao City, Philippines while we were there. We had a constant supply of stickers, songs, and love to go around! Although some days our energy was low, we never failed to give those kids all we had left.
Come and see, go and tell!
Come and see. Go and tell. Both are what I do. There are so many reasons why I love my job as a CURE U Coordinator. One reason is precisely this: that I can come and see how God is working both in the US and abroad, then go and tell of His provision, power, […]
My CURE trip to Zambia: A journey of beauty and connections
When I found out about the mission trip to Zambia, I was hesitant at first; not fully trusting I could raise enough money (God clearly proved He is way bigger than my worries or doubts). There was a string pulling on my heart to take the next step with CURE and go on a CURE trip to Zambia, Africa. So off I went, a little nervous and unsure of what to expect, but when God says go, you just have to trust and go.
5 simple days: CURE U Symposium reflections
In a matter of five days, God managed to bring 40 different strangers together as brothers and sisters striving for the same cause: spreading the gospel through the means of an organization called CURE.
When kids come to CURE, their paradigm shifts. They are held, hugged, played with, and told their value. They hear the gospel: the promise that they were created specially, loved unconditionally, and have a heavenly Father who has a plan for them
