It was the trip of a lifetime. Al-most 16 years ago ten families fromall over the U.S. were brought to-gether in a southern Chinese cityto adopt baby girls. This summer,nine of these same familiesbrought our daughters back to seetheir birth country.This time we started up northnear Beijing at a different orphan-age, an American church-spon-sored place for children withspecial needs. They find donationmoney for surgery to fix cleft lips,heart defects, tumors and boneymalformations, and then they helpthese kids get adopted.Our nine girls, along with threesisters and ten parents, assignedthemselves the job of playing withthose kids for two days, in order togive back a little before we startedtouring.Then we journeyed to see theGreat Wall, Tiananmen Square,the Forbidden City, terra cotta sol-diers, a panda preserve, and finallythe three orphanages from whereour children originally came. Wewere welcomed with the red-carpettreatment by orphanage directorsand high-level government offi-cials, as no large group such asours had as yet returned in thisway.There are several health relatedissues in China, about which wecan learn, starting with water andair pollution. There a clean envi-ronment appears a less importantpriority. Although their economyappears to be booming with bigpublic works construction, thestreets were filled with many morecars, motor scooters, and fewerbikes than 16 years ago. Cigarettesmoke hung everywhere, includingrestaurants, as many more obvi-ously smoke in China than in theU.S. Water was not as clean as weare used to, and we used bottledwater even to brush teeth. I returnto the American soil appreciatingmore than ever our clean air, skies,and water.But China has a wonderful tra-dition worth bringing here. Inevery square and public gatheringplace, each morning and evening,even in the steamy heat, we sawpeople happily exercising, dancing,stretching, and moving… mostly tomusic. As one young guide told me,“Especially the elderly realize thatthe key to staying alive is being ac-tive.” We in the US would benefitby following that example.Finally I would emphasize, and Iknow I speak for our nine familieswith China daughters, that thewarm sharing nature and the wel-coming culture of the people of China made it the trip of a lifetime.

Altering Recipes for Health
Have you ever found a recipethat looks so tasty you can hardlywait to prepare it—but when youstudy it closer, you realize it maynot be good for your health? Do youhave a collection of delicious fam-ily recipes that have been handeddown through the years? Have youever considered making smallchanges to those recipes thatwould decrease problem ingredi-ents with healthier ingredient sub-stitutes?Use the Step Approach to alteryour favorite recipes for goodhealth. The First Step is to look forthe “problem ingredients” thatmake a recipe high in fat, choles-terol and sodium. This will get youon track with the 2010 DietaryGuidelines for Americans, whichdescribe a healthy diet as one that:1. Emphasizes fruits, vegetables,whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products; 2. In-cludes lean meats, poultry, fish,beans, eggs, and nuts; and 3. Islow in saturated fats, trans fats,cholesterol, salt, sodium, andadded sugars.The Second Step is to find youringredient substitutes. Do this byreducing the amount or substitutean ingredient that is healthier foryou. You can reduce the fat in bak-ing by one-third to one-half inrecipes. Another option is to useapplesauce; if the recipe calls for 1cup of butter--use 1 cup of apple-sauce in place of the butter. Tryusing plain, non-fat yogurt in placeof sour cream.Reduce your sodium to 2300 mga day or less. Try replacing saltwith herbs and spices to flavorfoods. Consider using fruit juice orwine for cooking liquid instead of broth or bouillon. Choose no-saltadded products.Reduce sugar by one-quarter toone-third in baked goods anddesserts (this saves 200 to 300calories.) Increase flavorings suchas cinnamon or vanilla to enhancethe sweetness.The Third Step is to change yourmethod of preparation. As an ex-ample, try baking an item insteadof frying it. Leave skins on fruitsand vegetables when possible toincrease fiber. Altering recipes for good healthdoesn’t have to be a difficult chal-lenge. Healthy, tasty cooking caninclude decreasing fat, sugar andsalt in most recipes, while increas-ing the fiber, vitamins and miner-als.

Read John 4:7-30Take an honest look at your life. Do you feel wholeand complete, or is there the sense that something'smissing? If you're aware of an emptiness, what are youusing to try and fill that void? Is it relationships withfamily and friends? Or have you opted for achievements, hoping they will bring a sense of significance?Maybe you use a substance or activity of some kind to deaden the need or to bring temporary comfort.Jesus met a woman with just such an empty place in her soul. She was longing for love but had beenrepeatedly rejected. In those days, a man could divorce his wife simply because she displeased him insome way. The Samaritan woman had gone through this rejection five times and was now seeking to fillup her soul with a man who wasn't her husband.She probably tried to cover up her emptiness so those around her wouldn't see her hurt, but whenJesus met her at the well and told her all that she had done, her days of hiding were over. She had finallyfound the only One who could bring wholeness to her life. Before you can fill the emptiness in your soul,you, too, must let Christ's piercing gaze penetrate into the depths of your heart and reveal the root causeof your incompleteness.We were created for God. All other pursuits are inadequate substitutes and will never bring the lastingsatisfaction we are seeking. Life has a way of beating us down, leaving us empty and disillusioned. Butwhen we allow Christ unrestricted access to our hearts, He fills us up with His unfailing love.

Wetwood Disease of Cottonwood and Elm Trees
Wetwood disease is a commonailment of cottonwood and elms.The disease manifests itself inter-nally with an elevated pH andmineral content, more water andgas under pressure.Wetwood is a bacterial disease.The internal liquid spreads intothe outer sapwood and from theremoves out of the tree throughcracks in branch crotches or oldpruning wounds. The bark bleach-ing is due to the high pH of this liq-uid.The disease is sometimes asso-ciated with symptoms of leaf scorch and yellows and sometimeseven branch dieback. However,often the only symptom expressedby the disease is the streaking onthe bark and otherwise the treegrows just fine. Regardless thereare no effective treatments for thedisease and drilling holes in thetree to relieve pressure may causemore problems than it cures.For more information on treeand shrub diseases, insect pestsand other ailments, click the “Pest Alert Archives” on the “Educa-tional Information” page on the SDDept of Ag, “Conservation &Forestry” website:http://sdda.sd.gov/Forestry/educa-tional-information/default.aspx.
Black Knot Diseaseof Cherry and Plum
Black knot, also known as deadman’s finger, is a very commonfungal disease of cherry andplums. These black, coal-like galls,sometimes covered with a whitepower, can often be found liningthe branches and trunks of suscep-tible trees. A common recommendation isto prune out these galls during thewinter months, but this has verylimited value. First, these galls arethe second year’s infection. Thefirst year infection is only indi-cated by a slight greenish swellingof the tissue. If these shoots arenot also removed they will grow toform the blacked masses the fol-lowing year, so it is hard to getahead of the disease by pruning.The other problem is only cer-tain trees are very susceptible toblack knot and once they get thedisease you can probably expectthe tree to become infected againregardless of your pruning efforts.Cutting the tree down is probablythe best approach. When plantingcherry (including chokecherry) andplum, look for varieties resistant tothe disease.
