New Book To Be Published in December 2021

Sister Yumiko Nobue's colourful first book, Moving Cloud, Flowing Water, helped to bring the mission of the Medical Mission Sisters in Norther East India to life.

We are delighted to announce that Sister Yumiko will be publishing her second book on North East India in December 2021. This is entitled, Weaving of Spirit: A Journey into North East India.   

In the Introduction to her new book, Sister Yumiko explains how: “In 2007, I joined our sisters in North East India, and from the beginning, I was fascinated by almost everything I encountered. Being already fond of photography, I always carried a small digital camera wherever I went. Eventually, from the growing photo journal I had, a pictorial memoir evolved, Moving Cloud Flowing Water: A Journey Into North East India, which was published in 2015.” Her second book invites us to create another connection with the peoples there.

Of her second book, Sister Maria Hornung writes in her Foreword to it: “Having been captivated by the peoples of North East India, Yumiko has a passion for wanting others to glimpse for themselves what her eyes and heart have seen and felt.  This second book aims to deepen our acquaintance with several peoples in the region of North East India. Her passion and commitment in “moving” with the people and “flowing” with unfolding realities impels us to discover beauty and meaning, as well as challenge and opportunity.”

Many congratulations to its author, Sister Yumiko! 

Please look out for further announcements.
