We praise the Lord for yet another baptism in Ishinomaki! Yuko’s baptism was absolutely marvelous, truly a community event. Yuko has touched all of our lives with her sweet and honest spirit. Sue Takamoto, who led her to Christ, shared that since Yuko has come to know Christ she has become truly beautiful inside and out! What a miracle this baptism is considering that after the tsunami she wanted to die. Tragically, Yuko lost her mother and pregnant sister in the disaster but God used her deep despair to draw her to Himself. Read more here on Sue’s blog.

There’s a lot I could say but I’ll let these awesome photos speak for themselves!
