Mead Minutes: Hello from Santo Domingo

by on Sunday, November 5, 2017 at 2:21 am

Hello from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic!! Warm, humid weather has marked my time here. Hurricane Irma was gracious to this part of the DR and only soaked the area but did not cause any major destruction. The hospital is running well. I am enjoying my Dominican coffee each morning, although the staff cannot believe I […]

Our time in Zambia, although short, was great. I was able to work with the CURE surgeons and get a feel of the problems Zambian children face.

Victoria Falls definitely deserves its title as a Natural Wonder of the World. My week at the hospital was filled with many of the usual cases, but there was also a particular child, Mazuba, who had gone fishing with friends and was attacked by a crocodile.

The temperatures will soar up into the mid 90s. I have been told […]

Hello from the land of dust! The winds have been blowing and filling the air with a fine haze of brown. People cover up as they walk into the wind. We have been keeping busy at CURE Niger as kids with deformities just keep coming through our doors.

Mead Minutes: Hello from Niger!

Hello from Niamey, Niger! A few days ago, I was on my way to the airport. The clouds were hanging low and heavy, snow was pelting the windshield in small, icy balls; temperatures hovered around freezing. Michigan was having a mild January. What a change!

Some people mistakenly assume missionaries working overseas are the mission. Wrong. We are only a small part of a whole team.

Mead Minutes: Why not?

Greetings from the Meads! We returned from our CURE International meeting with medical directors, spiritual directors, executive directors, and U.S. CURE staff. We joined together in Pennsylvania to celebrate and discuss the business of CURE. The highlight of the meeting for me occurred Thursday. We had a celebration dinner. Construction of the first CURE hospital was […]
