Emmanuella update

Emmanuella is out of the hospital!
She is back home with her host family
and as you can see from the pictures
she is doing so well!
Rick and Darla her host parents have so many
wonderful stories of miracles that have
happened for Emmanuella and her Aunt
since they have been staying with them.

Everyone has been so blessed by this awesome
relationship and bridging of communities, cultures
and countries. What a beautiful testimony!
We are so thankful for all our volunteers!

Surgery updates

Baby Bear is out of surgery. It went well and he will have full leg casts on for awhile. Please continue to pray for him to be able to manage his pain OK and also they are concerned because of his "big bubba thighs" that his casts might slip off. He did have a difficult time in the past with allergic reactions to the casting material so we appreciate your thoughts and prayers for Bear.

Emmanuella is still in surgery. Her bypass surgery will take another three hours. So far she is doing well- we will update once we hear more. It is a blessing that her Aunt is able to be here with her and her host Mom Darla is doing a fantastic job. Keep praying!


Berlange "Baby Bear" is having surgery today on his bilateral club feet. Please keep him in your prayers.

Emmanuella is also having surgery today for her heart condition, please keep her in your prayers.

We will update you on both of these children as soon as we hear updates post surgery.

To the anonymous commenter regarding Mercy and her treatment:
We would LOVE to hear more from you! Please do email me (Sarah) at:

Mercy is being seen at CURE already and will have an EEG there next week but we would love to have the name of the neurosurgeon friend of yours if possible. Please email me with more details!
