Scott's update with Kelli...

Ali's Surgery

Ali after surgery

Taking in the local culture

Eating the local food

Today has been life changing to say the least, I believe we all have those “Aha Moments” from time to time, today was one of those for me!  I sat in an operating room in Kabul, Afghanistan for 45 minutes, and watched a doctor change a child’s life, and the life of his family.  It is hard to imagine that $1,000 changed little Ali Sina’s life… FOREVER!  You, the K-LOVE family, did that!  You changed a little boy’s life today!

Do you want to help more kids?  Right now, there are 100 million kids, just like Ali, who have a CUREable disability that can be fixed with a simple surgery.  The number seems staggering, and it is, but what’s even more staggering is just how simple it is to help change their lives… $1,000 and 45 minutes. 

I know that most of can’t give $1,000, but here’s what’s beautiful, you don’t have to.  This is about being part of a community, as the Church, working together we can make a difference!  Maybe it’s you, as a Sunday school teacher, small group leader or youth pastor, getting your friends together to help CURE Intl. change a life just like Ali.  We won’t change all 100 million kids lives this year, but together we can put a dent in it, start today, right here… K-LOVE + CURE

It is so AWESOME to see JESUS shine in a lost country of persecutors of our God! To show that JESUS loves even those who hate him and his children. I pray that hearts would be softened there through this and other miracles performed in Christ's name in that country so that our brothers and sisters over there might have the opportunity to know the True God. Thank you guys for shining!

WOW!  Oh how Jesus is sooooo good...I am so pleased and have a huge lump in my throat...I know how how his family feels and how grateful he will be one day when he is old enough to understand...I was not born with a cleft lip but instead another condition that there was no corrective surgery for until 6 years ago when I was 46 years of age...God and my team of doctors transformed my life...I am so blessed and OH YES, I DO UNDERSTAND!!!!!!
Thank you Jesus and thank you K-Love and all of your listeners...My mother and father did not get to see my transformation...I can't wait to get to Heaven to see them...
God Bless!

What a miracle! This is such an awesome job being done through Christ. I have little Ali will be in my prayers as well as Scott. I will also keep all these other children who are in need of such problems that make life so much harder for them. I pray that through Jesus Christ as many children as possible get the opportunity to have the best "normal life" as possible. God bless what everyone is doing to make things like this possible.

God has paid the price thousands of years ago, and Jesus shed his blood for all mankind to have a life more abundantly. God is an awsome God and I believe that people have to go through certain situations in order for His word to reach them. God does bring people together. Ali will now be able to tell others what God has done for him through the Klove ministry. Your testimony is more than you will ever know.

Have been excitedly waiting for the "After" picture of sweet little Ali! He is beautiful! So clear that God's love and mercy has blanketed this entire effort, spilling out into hearts and hands of everyone ministering to this little child, right there with him or praying all over the world.  And how awesome that the surgeon was even able to put the little "Cupid's bow" in Ali's lip that makes every baby's smile so adorable! Continued blessings to Ali, his family, and all involved in this miracle work.

I have been touched and inspired by this cause, it is especially close to my heart as a parent of a 1 year old boy with a cleft lip. Knowing first hand the shock and desperate need to provide care for a child born with special needs I can't imagine the deep gratitude and that little Ali's family is experiencing and how God can and will use that for His glory. I want encourage Ali's family that the healing from the surgery will seem slow at first but will amaze you a year from now. My sons smile is my favorite sight to see everyday. And I am so glad to know that there is an organization out there making this possible for these families through the love of our Father.

May God bless all those who are reaching out and healing these little ones with the hands of Jesus. My great-nephew was born with hare lip and cleft pallate.  He went through many, many reconstructive surgeries and now he is a handsome husband and father.  Thank God we have great surgeons and medical facilities that he was able to receive the best treatments. I pray protection and provision for you all and may God be glorified in and through these families' lives and through yours. In Jesus' name Amen and Amen!!
