Being good stewards of God’s resources
This post was written by Dave Helman, CPA. He is the Finance Director of CURE International. You may be surprised to know that—even as a CPA—the daily discipline of maintaining proper accounting records and standards isn’t always the never-ending thrill ride you might expect it to be.

How satellite helps power quality health care in Niger
The CURE hospital is located in the capital, Niamey, where only one million people live—out of nearly 20 million of Niger’s population. Clearly the future of CURE in Niger lies outside the city, where most of the population and most of the children with treatable disabilities live. Thanks to SATMED and satellite technology, we will be able to increase our presence in the rest of the country, even in the most remote areas.
Saratou, Kairat’s mom, 1/2

Mead Minutes: Are you a water walker?
Water walkers will share certain characteristics. They are obedient to the call and have the courage to step out of their comfort zone into the unknown. They are not smarter, nor richer, nor more trained. They are just courageously obedient. Living life as a missionary, as an adventure, pushes against that comfortable middle ground of self-sufficiency all the time. Just as you become comfortable with the ‘routine’ new challenges are given. You are called to step out into unfamiliar circumstances once again. Does it get easier as life proceeds? Not usually I find. Should I just refuse the opportunities when I know I am the one called? I could; I do have a choice. Then you run the risk of sliding down the slope toward boredom. You will miss out on the life that could be and be left with the “if only” regrets. I do not seek that either, no matter what the cost.
Mead Minutes: Teaming together and looking ahead
Sharing of experiences, both good and bad, needs a forum. Others in the world could use the knowledge we have gained to improve care in their situation. Numerous opportunities are present to leverage our knowledge and improve the medical/spiritual care for the children living with treatable disabilities across the globe.
After the surgery was done and the arm was amputated, however, there was a lightheartedness and freedom about him that was missing before. He knew that what he was carrying around with him was dead.

But when he was able to trust someone to take care of it for him and do the best thing, suddenly such a burden was lifted from him—he could live again.
