Jesus had this crazy thing where he loved everyone. He particularly had a thing for those who everyone else didn’t really care about. He hung out with swindlers, adulterers, criminals, and children.

Back in early 2017, mobile clinics intimidated me. Each one was a culmination of about six weeks of work within communities up to three hours away from the Tebow CURE Hospital.
