My CURE trip: Devotions in the Dominican Republic

What are the building blocks of CURE International? The answer is its people and their overflowing love of the Lord.

My absolutely perfect team that I couldn't have been more thankful for.

My CURE trip: How big is God?

by on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 at 8:00 pm

If there is anything that I have learned in my six years of being a Christ follower, it is that hanging out with Jesus is an unpredictable journey that changes every day. Last summer, after fighting with God for months about going on my first international missions trip, He pushed me—rather forcefully—to trust Him and take a leap of faith.

The least of these

One of my favorite things about Jesus is the way He healed people. I don’t mean in the miraculous sense (though that is pretty cool). I mean how He physically healed people: lepers, bleeding women, demoniacs, the crippled, and the blind.

What if Scott and Sally Harrison decided to take up golf and collecting seashells instead of founding CURE? How different the world would look for children with physical disabilities in many parts of the world! CURE started with a small hospital on the edge of the Rift Valley in Kenya East Africa. Since then, hospitals have been founded and are growing in many locations. CURE International reaches out into the Dominican Republic, Afghanistan, UAE, Philippines, Niger, Ethiopia, Malawi, Zambia, Uganda, and Kenya. Every year, thousands of children with disabilities are offered hope and restoration emotionally, spiritually, and physically.

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.

The hands and feet of Christ

Walking around villages, speaking with these children, and seeing the pure joy in their hearts challenged every moment in my life where I thought I was struggling, or my life was difficult in any way. Everyone from the Dominican Republic was so kind and humbly accepted the things we brought to them. One child we had the honor and privilege of meeting was a girl named Nasly. She previously had clubfoot, and it was amazing to see her walk around her house, and hug each and every one of us.

The safest place to be: out on a limb

But as I listed every possible reason I could think of to not apply, God gave me an urge to counter my arguments. It wasn’t one I could explain, but it was also one I couldn’t ignore. God was inviting me to go out on a limb with Him; my urges to apply were His way of reminding me that following Him will forever be the safest place.

The introduction of social media has revolutionized the way the world communicates.

These days, social media not only empowers global organizations, its also being utilized to help employers find qualified employees and […]

Short-term missions: what it’s really like

We’ve told you a lot about our wonderful volunteers and how their time and talents are a blessing to each of the hospitals they visit, but have you ever wondered what it’s really like to volunteer at a CURE hospital?
