Mead Minutes: A hand to heal

by on Saturday, March 25, 2017 at 3:25 pm

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.

Internet scrolling you can feel good about

Here’s the thing: We scroll through a thousand things every day. A deluge of emails. An increasingly divisive steam of social media posts. Mindless surfing of a website or twenty. Those aren’t bad things, they just aren’t really all that life-giving most of the time. CUREkids is the opposite of that.

All January, I’ve been trying to implement a new discipline, a journaling exercise that pastor Jeff Manion gave our team at the 2017 CURE International Directors’ Conference. Part of the daily exercise is listing three specific things for which I’m thankful. Today, a song was on the top of my gratitude list. Rend Collective’s “Joy” […]

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!

Mead Minutes: The story of an amazing journey

by on Monday, January 30, 2017 at 7:29 pm

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

My absolutely perfect team that I couldn't have been more thankful for.

My CURE trip: How big is God?

by on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 at 8:00 pm

If there is anything that I have learned in my six years of being a Christ follower, it is that hanging out with Jesus is an unpredictable journey that changes every day. Last summer, after fighting with God for months about going on my first international missions trip, He pushed me—rather forcefully—to trust Him and take a leap of faith.

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.

Mead Minutes: Merry Christmas!

by on Thursday, December 22, 2016 at 8:27 pm

As we draw close to Christmas, I always feel a tension present. There is the joy of celebration and remembering why we have Christmas. People tend to focus on the Christ child, but stores, ads, and events also bombard us with ‘must get’ or must do’ needs that push a hectic pace.
