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.”

You are in the hearts and prayers of so many "back here", Scott, as are those you are with and each of those you will touch with God's love and compassion.  And all of you are held securely in God's love and care.  (And thanks for the updates!)

thank you, Scott, for going to Afghanistan and for helping that adorable little baby Ali.  Thank you for being representative of those of us who would like to go but can't.  The prayer you prayed here (on this post) is beautiful Scott.  I have never met you, but I listen to you & Kellie on the radio sometimes.  I wish I did know you and could give you a big hug, you are an amazing young man!  God's love and compassion are shining through you, Honey.

Be safe, and give my love to the family and Ali, if you get a chance.

Looking forward to hearing from you once you are back.
