Mead Minutes: Happy New Year!
2016 was a year that used CURE International to reach out in love and caring to many across the globe. The physically disabled, both children and adults, are marginalized in most societies.
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.
Mead Minutes: Trials, healing, and waiting
Healing is all about the three components we stress at CURE International: emotional, spiritual, and physical. All three areas need to be in balance, strong, and healthy for us to function well. How often do we keep on plugging along knowing something is not right?
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.

A young lady who was 17 years old came to CURE in Kijabe, Kenya. She was scheduled for an amputation. Everyone began doing their part to prepare this lady for the new reality she was about to face when she walks out of the operating room.
Who are your heroes?
Life is full of heroes. Some are known by many. Some are known by few. Some are the silent kind who work behind the scenes, making life a better place unbeknownst to almost everyone. Recently in Kenya, we celebrated Mashujaa Day. Mashujaa is the Swahili word for heroes.
Called to serve: The struggle is real
I don’t know about my other CURE U friends, so I’ll speak for myself when I say that sometimes it’s really, really hard to feel like I’m making an impact as a college student.
