I met Jesus in Santo Domingo

by on Monday, January 26, 2015 at 12:00 pm

When I was offered the opportunity to lead a CURE U team on a trip to the Dominican Republic over Thanksgiving break, I never dreamed I’d have the chance to meet Jesus while kneeling at a hospital bedside with plaster still drying on my fingers.

Washing feet and healing wounds

by on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 at 3:18 pm

For the past two days we have been serving through washing dishes and serving buttered bread (called blue band) with tea for breakfast, followed by morning teaching of Jesus’ word. It’s an interesting endeavor: each of the teachers has an interpreter present to translate English to Lango; however, some of us need our English translated to “African” English so the interpreter can understand in order to translate. It really is quite the process, but somewhere in all of it we believe that Jesus is breaking communication barriers and whatever He wants to be heard will be heard. Sometimes, love doesn’t need to be spoken.

Although all CURE hospitals are usually happy places, the smiles were especially bright thanks to our friends at Smile Network International.
