“Just sit down with a kid and do some coloring; that has a huge impact on a kid’s life and most people don’t know it. Just spend time with kids and show them who you are; pour out your heart that God gave you for them.”

“I want to do medical school because I want to live my name. My name, Thandizo, means ‘help,’ so that’s what I want to be. I think that’s what God is calling me to, not just medically but in a lot of ways.”

10 things I’ve learned in the best job ever
Time on this planet flies. In the tropics, it flies a little faster. I think it has something to do with being on the equator, where the earth literally spins quicker, and there are no climate indicators that remind you that time is moving forward. It feels like I was hired as the first CUREkids Coordinator for the Tebow CURE Hospital just last week. And now, my first year is almost over. I’m not planning on going anywhere; there’s still a lot to do, a lot to learn, and whole lot of kids to love and hang out with!
Life is filled with God’s stories
As I continued to beg God for direction in life, He used every day to teach me how to trust Him and listen to every story that He’s creating around me. I became aware. I noticed that every experience that God has brought me through has its own story. Some ended great, and many did not, but I saw that all of these stories led me to one destination. They all led me to Jesus. This year, I have seen more of God’s existence than I ever have before.
These faces, these hearts beating
Sometimes these people in cars had hearts that were beating, and sometimes they hardly seemed like participants in this beast of a thing called 5 o’clock traffic that brings out the worst in all of us as we crawl along at a snail’s pace. I used to wonder what it would take for me to see the beating hearts more often, and how that could possibly change my life and their lives and maybe even the world, if we all saw them.
Apply to become our next CUREkids Coordinator!
CURE is currently looking for several CUREkids Coordinators, or CKC’s, to spend a year or more living and working at one of our hospitals. Daily life as a CKC is multifaceted, but could essentially be described as a relationally-focused photojournalism job. CUREkids Coordinators document every child who comes into our hospitals, including the kids you see at cure.org/curekids, and help tell CURE’s story through telling the stories of the kids we serve.
We are skin and bones with souls
But somehow, a thousand turns in the road later, I end up at CURE Malawi. Initially I was dead set against it. Me, in a hospital, in Africa? Ridiculous. But then followed a week of sleepless nights spent thinking about photojournalism, travel, children, and doing-something-good. I was in. I would just figure out the photographing-surgery part when I got there.

A life-changing year at CURE Ethiopia
I cannot believe I am writing these words: I’ve been in Ethiopia for a year. It’s hard to believe I picked up everything, packed my bags, and headed to Ethiopia… and it’s already over. I’ve had the hardest time saying “no” to a second year as Ethiopia’s CUREkids Coordinator, but I know that for now, this is what’s best. I honestly can’t put into words the emotions, frustrations, and joys of investing my heart in a new culture, but this journey has absolutely rocked my world.
