Mead Minutes: Hello from Santo Domingo
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.

Walking with a purpose
There are so many things in life that we do unconsciously. We never question the reasoning behind doing them, or the rationale behind doing them. It’s like we are programmed to do them, and we never really ask “why” we are doing them!

Something wonderful: Seasons
Living in Pennsylvania most of my life, I did not realize how much I love the change of seasons. I know, people have complained about snow, the humidity of August, and perhaps that spring may be too rainy. Believe me, I have had my gripes, but I love it!
Give me new eyes
“Now therefore stand still and see this great thing that the Lord will do before your eyes.” 1 Samuel 12:16 Recently, CURE received a visit from some students and staff from an international school in Nairobi.
