Yoshiko used to serve at the Japanese church in Milton Keynes, UK, before she and her daughter Mami returned to Japan in 2009. Yoshiko continues to maintain warm contacts with this church. Very sadly Yoshiko's daughter Mami died in April 2022 following a protracted battle with serious illness.

Thank you for praying for Yoshiko as she comes to terms with Mami's death and deals with all the matters requiring her attention in this difficult season. Thank you for praying for strength and perseverance for Yoshiko, as well as for continued reliance on the Lord.
