Ali's Surgery

The surgery is complete! Ali, a one-year old boy in Afghanistan has just finished his life-changing surgery to fix his cleft palate through a CURE hosptial. The procedure was more complicated than some because the gap in his lip is greater than usual, but the doctor measured the two sides of his lip and made points with a dye to determine the best way to make the correction. Note: Despite the scrubs, I did not perform the surgery.

Viewer discretion advised, some parts of the surgery can be seen in this video. Thank you for your support and making this surgery possible.

I am in Afghanistan

Scott calls the Morning Show...

Scott meets Ali...

Welcome to Afghanistan and the CURE Hospital....

Our K-LOVE and CURE Intl. trip to Afghanistan has been amazing!  Yesterday we arrived in Kabul.  Tensions are high, as you’ve probably heard, but we are safe and we’re seeing God work in amazing ways through CURE’s work here.  

Although the CURE hospital is one of 60 hospitals in Kabul, it is the biggest and the busiest, God is using it to touch lives in an Amazing way.  We have seen first hand how loving people who consider us enemies is changing their lives, and one of the children’s lives being changed is Ali Sina.  We met Ali and his family today, and later this morning, we’ll see his cleft lip and pallet repaired, thanks to K-LOVE listeners. 

I am sitting here awake at 2 AM, praying in anticipation of what God will do.  I am writing this because I don’t have access to a phone right now and a WIFI connection that comes and goes, in hopes that you will join me in praying for Ali, the CURE staff and the beautiful people of Afghanistan.

Here is a letter I wrote to Ali’s family after meeting them today:

“I wanted to write and let you know what a joy it was meeting your family yesterday.  We so appreciated meeting Ali, and are praying to God that his surgery goes well.  We are praying for God’s peace, and for a quick recovery.  

What I wanted you to know is that there are many more people in America who love Ali and your family, and are praying for you today.  Ali’s surgery is being provided for by families who love the CURE hospital and wanted to help Ali.  We will continue to pray for him and for your family, we look forward to hearing about his recovery in the months to come.  May God bless and watch over you.”

Really? Beans for lunch?

If you're a parent, you've probably found that the struggle to feed our kids healthy food (that they will actually eat!) is constant! It can be tough to choose the right foods to put in their lunchboxes. So, this list of things that should be in our kids' lunches caught our eye. According to EatingWell Magazine, there are three things that should be in our kids' lunches to give them the nutrients and energy they need. The first is Oatmeal Bars. They can fill a kid up quickly (if you're running late and eating on the way to school!) and last longer than a sugary cereal. Another food that is great for our kids is yogurt. It helps to provide much-needed calcium to help them build strong bones. The third food on the list made us laugh! Never would have guessed: beans! Experts say that beans have iron and many new studies show that kids don't get enough iron. Iron is good for learning, memory and battling attention problems.

So, in addition to Oatmeal Bars and yogurt, break out the "musical fruit" (sorry, teachers!) for a healthier lunch for your kid tomorrow!

Oz turns 70!!!!

One of my favorite movies growing up as a kid was the Wizard of Oz.  It was like one of the only movies we got to see, because we only had one TV channel in the little Minnesota town that I grew up in.  I am curious, if you could pick one Wizard of oz Character that best describes you, who would it be???
