The Importance of Prayer: A Servant Girl’s Faith
There’s this story we like to tell here at CURE Niger. It’s the story of Naaman being healed of leprosy in 2 Kings 5. The short version is Naaman has leprosy. A servant girl says “Hey Naaman, you should go see Elisha.” So, Namaan goes to Elisha. Namaan takes a bath, then boom! No leprosy. […]
Choosing to speak out the real truth
The more CUREkids I get to hang out with here at the Tebow CURE Hospital, I’m seeing a whole lot of people “speaking the truth” through nicknames. These nicknames translate to things like “without legs,” or “walking with a limp,” or “crooked feet.” People label each other with physical flaws that lead others, including their own selves, to think that’s who they are made to be, since you know, people are just “speaking out the truth.”
Cast your nets
Then Jesus came to him, and told him to go out and try again. “Cast your nets into the deep.” You can almost picture Simon rolling his eyes – who was this stranger, telling him how to do his job. He was a fisherman, he knew how to catch fish, and he knew that what Jesus wanted him to do wouldn’t work. He had just spent all night trying to catch fish, and there were none to be caught, and anyway, who in their right mind would go out fishing in the hot sun? Simon knew that it wouldn’t work, but for some reason, he did it anyway. He knew it wouldn’t work, but he heard the voice of Jesus and for some reason he decided to obey.
A child’s potential
Children have so much potential. They have potential to be child soldiers, presidents, doctors, ISIS members, politicians, musicians, beggars, teachers, athletes, farmers. Satan would love to bend that potential to evil, but God can use it for such great good. So I pray for our children.
Three years of fasting
Days turned into weeks, months, and years, and Finley still did not have an answer to his prayers. He began to question why God wasn’t responding. His family was so faithful; why wouldn’t God honor their devotion and help Phillip? He couldn’t understand why any of this was happening.
Are you thirsty?
The dry heat makes me so thirsty, I can drink more than 3 liters of water in a day. I need to keep drinking throughout the day and even sometimes at night. This is a simple illustration of our spiritual thirst. Throughout the day my soul thirsts, too. My soul longs for satisfaction and comfort. If I attempt to satisfy my spiritual thirst with anything other than the LORD, I will be disappointed.
Prayer: When Your Baby’s Having Surgery
“You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal.” Isaiah 26:3-4 Good morning, God I’ve come to meet with You Because I’m scared For too long My baby’s been suffering Now surgery is today […]

At the Honduras Hospital
Our first full day in Honduras. This country, like every country around the world, has its unique traits (like the taste of its tortillas compared to tortillas in other Latin American countries) as well as the more globally ubiquitous aspects (Coca Cola signs everywhere). I love its beautiful green, rolling mountains and warm, friendly and […]
