Healing the Heart: Trauma Training

by on Monday, July 27, 2020 at 9:47 am

It is CURE’s desire that every patient who comes in contact with us goes home transformed physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Patients enter CURE hospitals with disabilities that have visible scars as well as scars that you can’t see. For patients to fully heal, we need to address their emotional scars. Through trauma training, we equip […]

God Makes the Difference in Extraordinary Circumstances

by on Monday, July 6, 2020 at 8:54 am

Let me state the obvious: we have all been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. For us here in Davao City, Philippines, our ability to move out and about has been limited. The usually long queues in public places have become even longer. Access to public transportation has been much more challenging, especially to my co-workers […]

Healing body, mind, and soul

by on Wednesday, July 6, 2016 at 6:00 am

Jesus was a healer. I think we often see Christ as a spiritual healer, but we need to recognize that He healed physically as well. Christ came to heal holistically, not just one part of a broken creation, but all parts. He came to heal our relationship with God, our relationship with the world, and our relationships with each other.

Hassane’s Farewell

by on Thursday, November 5, 2015 at 7:13 pm

Personally, I had the privilege to work very closely with Hassane, and to see with my own eyes the love he has for everyone and the goodness of his heart. I have witnessed his love of our patients, their parents, and of our personnel, and seen him demonstrate this love over and over again, either through providing prayer, counseling, advice, or just friendly conversation. I have also seen him give of himself in every way.

Are you thirsty?

by on Tuesday, August 25, 2015 at 6:17 am

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.

Healing for patients and pastors alike

by on Wednesday, January 7, 2015 at 8:30 am

CURE Uganda’s Spiritual Director Miriam Ongom recently shared the following story: “We invited 34 pastors to a meeting called “Christianity Explored” so they could come and hear testimonies from two mothers whose children had been treated at CURE Uganda. Jesse’s mother (referred to as ‘Mama Jesse’) shared a very touching experience that moved many of the pastors to cry and repent.”

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. She describes her experience below. In 2013, my world was radically shaken. Through Uganda, Jesus changed my life. It was my first trip to Africa and my first […]

Working together to heal body, mind, and heart

by on Friday, April 18, 2014 at 8:00 am

As you may already know, CURE’s model of spiritual ministry relies heavily on our partnerships with local pastors and church planters in the countries we serve. Wherever possible throughout our network of hospitals and programs, our spiritual ministry teams build intentional relationships with local church leaders in order to ensure opportunities for pastoral follow-up outside of our hospital and clinical settings.

Spiritual centers of excellence

by on Monday, November 21, 2011 at 6:20 am

I’ve written before about our ministry to the mothers and parents of the children we treat at the CURE Children’s Hospital of Uganda. It occurred to me this morning, as I watched our staff and about 20 of our parents dance, praise, and worship together, that the uniqueness and importance of the spiritual center of […]
