Niger’s first clubfoot symposium
Suggestions were to begin including the Ponseti Method in the curriculum for all medical students and nurses, and to continue to train health care professionals on clubfoot treatment. Overall it was very encouraging to see so many of Niger’s health care workers so involved in the discussion and dedicated to reaching the maximum number of patients through healing.
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.
Made for love
How silly is it that in every instance where God gifts us with an extraordinary answer to our prayers, we act completely surprised? I catch myself reacting this way again and again, as if His plan could not ever be more exceptional than what I could imagine. I discovered this yet again after the CURE U Symposium, where I was left awestruck at the beautiful mess He created within only a few days.
God invites broken people to join Him
Last week, 27 college students took part in Symposium, CURE U’s annual planning and leadership event. CURE U represents 20 college campuses across the country that are excited about the work God is doing through CURE in 30 countries around the world. CURE U students raise enough money to heal dozens of kids each year!
