A Family Transformation: Zara, Maria, and Walida
Maria entered the world like most other babies – arms and legs crossed over each other and her body curled up in the fetal position. But unlike other babies, Maria didn’t immediately adapt to her new environment. She didn’t kick her legs or wave her arms. Instead, she remained curled in the fetal position, her […]
A Brave Heart for Jesus
“My heart is just for Jesus now,” proclaims McDonald. He first arrived at the tender age of two and has been a patient at the hospital for over four years.

Catherine is Taller!
“There are people who laugh at me. I do get upset because of that,” shares Catherine. Catherine’s condition was very visible, and she attracted attention because of it.

Internet scrolling you can feel good about
Here’s the thing: We scroll through a thousand things every day. A deluge of emails. An increasingly divisive steam of social media posts. Mindless surfing of a website or twenty. Those aren’t bad things, they just aren’t really all that life-giving most of the time. CUREkids is the opposite of that.
Wherever Jesus is, healing follows
It’s no secret that Jesus spent a lot of time healing people, but He didn’t necessarily spend a lot of time seeking out people to heal. In Matthew, crowds came to Jesus and placed people with a variety of disabilities at His feet. An entire town gathered at His door in Mark and He healed many of their diseases. A paralyzed man was carried on a mat and brought before Jesus in Luke. In John, a man found Jesus as soon as He arrived in town and begged Him to heal his son.
“All my fears are behind me”
The first time we met John Paul at clinic, he was sitting in the happiest place in the hospital—the playroom—unsuccessfully fighting back tears. A recent fall had left his upper leg in severe pain, and it wasn’t getting any better. We tried to cheer him up with activities, conversation, and anything to distract him. He hadn’t […]
Is God a crutch?
A few weeks ago, I started seeing a video about crutches pop up all over the place. In this video we see an exciting new redesign for crutches, which basically haven’t changed much or been improved upon since the American Civil War, 150 years ago. It was interesting to see this redesign, since we see a lot of crutches here at the hospital.
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.
