I met Jesus in Santo Domingo
When I was offered the opportunity to lead a CURE U team on a trip to the Dominican Republic over Thanksgiving break, I never dreamed I’d have the chance to meet Jesus while kneeling at a hospital bedside with plaster still drying on my fingers.
Turning hurting into healing
After losing his wife of 20 years, Bruce Smith was motivated to make an impact with the remainder of his life. He signed up for medical training. When most men his age were retiring, Bruce was becoming a licensed orthopedic technician. Bruce’s search for a meaningful way to use his new skills led him to CURE. He volunteered for a nine-week trip to CURE Dominican Republic.
Little Bodies, Big Hearts
It surprises me to realize that I’ve had a desk at CURE Headquarters for almost 6 months now. I spend my days educating others about CURE’s mission to live out Luke 9:2, “Healing the sick and proclaiming the kingdom of God.” But that balmy, rain-filled Friday in Uganda was the first time my feet walked on CURE soil, a living, breathing place full of hope, life, and restoration. The lettering on the sign was familiar to my American eyes, but innately I knew there would be little else that was familiar.
