A look at the church's role in health and fitness

Hi Ladies,

Since coming to Russia a little over 11 years ago, my husband and I have both noticed a very intersting fact. There is a huge difference in size comparing the average Russian to the average American. Even though we already knew there was a huge obesity problem in the states, it becomes much more obvious when you go to a foreign country where it is unusual to see very obese people.

As an RN, I have become so concerned about the people in the churches that support us across the country. We have so many people who have health problems at a young age that could largely be prevented by regular exercise and proper eating habits.

I read an interesting article along this line just the other day. I must put a disclaimer on it, that I am not endorsing the doctor or the ministry that he is working with. I just thought it was a very interesting article, and worth the several minutes it will take to read. I know Dani Joy will especially find this interesting, as I know she has such a burden for the ladies in the churches she visited last year.
