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

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.

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.

Mead Minutes: Trials, healing, and waiting

by on Wednesday, December 21, 2016 at 11:00 pm

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

by on Monday, December 19, 2016 at 10:11 pm

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.
