My CURE trip: Devotions in the Dominican Republic
This post was written by Taylor Thomas, who is a member of the CURE U chapter at Liberty University in Virginia. She served on a CURE U trip to Dominican Republic….
We recently had a patient at CURE named Girma. I asked various friends what the name means. One answered, “I see Big.” And he waved his hands in the sky and his eyes got big and round with wonder. Another said, “It is like respect.” Finally, I asked a friend who had more familiarity with religious words in English. She said, “It means glory!” I enjoyed hearing the other different explanations for a difficult concept – glory. God’s glory is who He is. When we see some of His glory it is a brief reflection of the tiniest part of who He is.
Aramatou was so excited to see her work laid out in that way; it was visually striking. She kept saying, “I can’t believe I did all this.” It was a powerful image, not just of the fact that she made some pretty pictures, but of all she has accomplished. She has changed, grown, and blossomed, just like the flowers that she loves to draw.
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.
ENT Outreach in Zambia
Since 2010, CURE Zambia has been in the possession of a mobile ENT (Ear, Nose, and Throat) clinic truck, gifted to us by Gorta and Irish Aid, and has conducted screenings all around Zambia. Minor procedures and extractions can be done on site, while more serious issues are referred to our permanent hospital in Lusaka. For all the children, the visit is an event and for the ones with hearing issues, it is life-changing!
