CFC In Ethiopia | June 2018

Jason Craig  |  News  |  Missions

Meet Mariam. She is an 11-year-old Muslim girl, born with clubbed feet, which means that Mariam has had difficulty learning to walk and being accepted by people around her. But now, thanks to the CURE Hospital, Miriam has been fully restored and given hope for a future. CURE is in the business of transformation by healing the sick and proclaiming the kingdom of God. Musician Chris Tomlin (also Cure board member) says because of CURE, “Kids right now who can’t walk or can’t go outside because their faces look different… will get to be kids again.”

As a church, we will continue to join the incredible, restorative work that God is doing through CURE. CFC is accepting short term mission applications from senior high students interested in joining our June 8-19th team. The CFC team will be working alongside Cure’s Spiritual Department staff to engage pre-op and post-op patients in organized play and art therapy. You can find more details along with the application by clicking the button at the bottom of the blog. There are a limited number of spots, so complete your application as soon as possible.

Direct all questions and applications to Student Ministry Director, Douglas Kersten, or Executive Pastor, Jason Craig,
