Shigeko Yamaguma

In: Japan
ID: 178606

After spending a year in Brazil as a missionary in 2007, God started calling Shigeko back to Japan to bring the Gospel to her own people. For the first two years, God placed Shigeko in camp ministry in the outskirts of Tokyo, reaching out to the most responsive segment of the Japanese population: children and youth. Yet her deep desire to serve the people affected by the 2011 triple disaster in northern Japan continued to be her passionIn April 2019, she finally moved to Iwaki, Fukushima, home to more than 20,000 evacuees who were displaced due to the nuclear disaster. Shigeko has been walking alongside the women, both young and old, through English ministries and counselling. She is also actively involved with the citywide Christmas committee and prayer ministries.
