Keeping the gospel central in all life
“But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel…” Galatians 2:11-19 No one except Paul had his eyes open at this, and so it was his duty to reprove Peter and his followers for swerving from the truth of the Gospel. Both Paul and Peter need to be […]
Mead Minutes: A team approach to surgery
Hello from the Philippines! I have left the midwest cold just as I was getting used to it. I am back in the heat and high humidity of Tebow CURE Hospital once again. We are seeing some amazing children with wild deformities here at the Tebow CURE Hospital. Yesterday, we had a 14-year-old boy with […]
Serving God without fear
When John the Baptist was born, his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Spirit and sang an inspired song (Luke 1:67-79). In it, he talks about prophecy fulfilled, about the long-awaited time when salvation would finally arrive for God’s people and they would be delivered from their enemies.
Mead Minutes: Merry Christmas!
Sometimes amidst the glitter and noise, the reason we celebrate is lost. Christmas should be a season of “awe and wonder.” When Christ was born, there were no Christmas sales going on.

Mead Minutes: Hello from Santo Domingo
Hello from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic!! Warm, humid weather has marked my time here. Hurricane Irma was gracious to this part of the DR and only soaked the area but did not cause any major destruction. The hospital is running well. I am enjoying my Dominican coffee each morning, although the staff cannot believe I […]
Walking with a purpose
There are so many things in life that we do unconsciously. We never question the reasoning behind doing them, or the rationale behind doing them. It’s like we are programmed to do them, and we never really ask “why” we are doing them!
Mead Minutes: Choosing to do more
Traveling the world visiting the different CURE hospitals has been challenging and instructive. CURE has a talented group of orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons with vast experience in treating physical disabilities.
Something Wonderful: Keep on playing
I love thinking about all of these stages of “play.” We don’t stop playing, it just changes and evolves. Isn’t that one way we learn about our world?
