What of the
Sister Yanagida in Automobile Accident
26 October 2009
Thanks for your great work and service by providing this information every week.
Some sad news, Sister Yanagida was in an automobile accident this week and is in the hospital. She was in a car driven by the Kobe Stake patriarch and his wife and they were hit by a truck. I do not have all the details but she is going to be in hospital for at least a month and does have broken bones. This is very tragic. Given her advanced age, healing and getting back to were she was physically could be a challenge. The other sister in the car was hurt even worse and I am told will lose her leg.
We had the chance to speak in the Kobe Stake Conference with her a few weeks back. She was genki and full of the Spirit. She was scheduled to also participate in the Osaka North Stake conference yesterday and speak with us again, but the accident prevented that. Please pray for her full recovery.
