Dear JCFN Members,
Praise the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Thank you so very much for your prayers, financial support and encouragements in many different ways or JCFN, God's ministry.
JCFN's fiscal year is from July to June. The enclosed is the financial report for last year (2013-2014). As it is written at the top of the financial report, in order to create the US and Japan joint financial report, we had to make prior year adjustment which took a lot longer than we had anticipated. We apologize for this delay in sending out the financial report.
In order for JCFN to carry out its ministry of equipping the returnees for God's ministry, we need $30,000 to $40,000 for administration, ministry, and staff support funds.
We are informing for different opportunities to support JCFN such as fundraise, becoming supporting members, and etc. Please pray with us that the Lord will meet all of our needs and that His ministry will continue to move forward.
Giving thanks to God who is the true provider.

Encouraging Words Received
By Rev. Shinji Seki
Japanese Ministry Pastor at Honolulu Christian Church
It takes tremendous sacrifice and energy to put together an event such as Equipper Conference. I thank God for JCFN's ministry. JCFN has been serving for many years to bring breakthrough to the difficulties that the returnees would face upon their return to Japan. We want to pray for JCFN's ministry. Also as a local church, we want to build good partnership to support the returnees.
From 9/20 to 9/23, there will be GRC15, a returnees conference, at the foot of the Mt. Fuji. Participants will include; returnees, those who are welcoming returnees, and those who are ministering to Japanese outside of Japan. I will also serve as one of the main speakers and we are planning our reunion for Honolulu Christian Church. Please spread the word and join us!
