Sister Chieko Okazaki, former counselor in the General Relief Society
presidency, will speak at a district 30-year anniversary
commemoration service at Okazaki Stake, Aichi Prefecture, Japan, on
April 12th. Chieko Okazaki served as first counselor in the General
Relief Society presidency from 1990-1997, continues to write and
speak about LDS issues, and is well known for her five best-selling
LDS books. Among them, "Lighten Up" has been translated and
read in many countries.
30 years ago, Sister Okazaki's husband, Elder Edward Okazaki (died 10
years ago), the president of Western Japan mission decided to
organize a district at a town named the same as his family! The
Okazaki Stake must be unforgettable to Sister Okazaki.
