Surely Acts 16:31 God's promise came to pass concerning her father's life so  Don't give up praying for your love one and friends and neighbors and  and your enemy too! Please remember I was once your enemy used to mock Christian faith then look what has God done to me  through someone's intercessor prayer for the lost soul.

Whatever you care most about in this life becomes your passion and Yuko is passionate for Jesus the Christ.

     “For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel—not with words wisdom and eloquence, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.  

                                                                                                                  (1 Cor. 1:17)

“Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin, and desire nothing but God, and I care not a straw whether they be clergymen or laymen, such alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of heaven upon earth."??
