The dark is just a canvas
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
Some people mistakenly assume missionaries working overseas are the mission. Wrong. We are only a small part of a whole team.
My CURE trip: How big is God?
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.

Mead Minutes: Merry Christmas!
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.

Wherever Jesus is, healing follows
It’s no secret that Jesus spent a lot of time healing people, but He didn’t necessarily spend a lot of time seeking out people to heal. In Matthew, crowds came to Jesus and placed people with a variety of disabilities at His feet. An entire town gathered at His door in Mark and He healed many of their diseases. A paralyzed man was carried on a mat and brought before Jesus in Luke. In John, a man found Jesus as soon as He arrived in town and begged Him to heal his son.
