As Peggy and I talked, I learned that though this was her first time at CURE, it was about the fourth time that Tina would need to receive surgery for her condition. Shunt failure or infection is a common challenge for hydrocephalus patients, and Tina was no exception.
Forever changed in Kijabe
We arrived at the hospital, greeted with smiles and handshakes; it was a warm experience. I was nervous and, to be honest, a bit scared. I was still figuring out why I was there. I was having doubts, saying things to myself like, “I could’ve used this money to fund some surgeries,” or “I am the only non medical student on this trip, how am I supposed to be of any help at a hospital?” I let my initial insecurities govern my behavior until I made the decision to trust God and His plan for me on this trip. Let me just tell you, the second I walked into that children’s ward, He revealed to me exactly why I was there.
Healing changed me
Andrea Mills is a dental hygienist from North Carolina. She has traveled with CURE twice, including once as a team leader. Visiting CURE Uganda was transformational for Andrea.

Washing feet and healing wounds
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.
Closing the door in God’s face
For two years now there has been an ongoing dialogue between the Lord and me. It sounds a little something like this… I will make you as a light for the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth. (Isaiah 49:6) Maybe it’s not so much a dialogue, because I’ve been […]

Although all CURE hospitals are usually happy places, the smiles were especially bright thanks to our friends at Smile Network International. Smile Network is a Minnesota-based non-profit which funds surgical missions and provides necessary supplies and surgical teams to repair birth defects such as […]
