In Japan we seemed to have had summer in early December. There were days when the children in the neighborhood were outside playing in short sleeves.
But Winter came.
Finally! It’s cold!
As colds are prevalent, please take care of yourself.
This month and next the “Megumix Corner” of the JCFN blog will introduce regional meetings which cooperate with JCFN.
There are people from all over overseas coming to back Japan to various areas throughout the country. If you return to an area nearby to a group, please come and checkout a local group.
This time in the blog we will start in Kanto introducing Chiba prefecture’s “Richiba”, and Tokyo’s “GiFT”.
I interviewed the leaders, and asked them some of the following information:
①Regional Meeting Name
②When and where is it held?
③What types of activities do you do?
④What’s your vision?
⑤What are some special things about your area? Tell us an appealing point!
⑥Any thing else? Comment? Feel free to any any additional information!
First of of all, Ricchiba!
Miss Kana Katoh, leader

This is an interview with Mr. Kentaro Imai.
①GiFT (Growing in Fellowship Tokyo)
②We hold an event once every 2 months at different locations. This year’s events are scheduled to be held on January 19th and March 9th.
③We hold events for the purpose of following-up returnee Christians, we create opportunities to connect returning brothers and sisters with brothers and sisters in the church, community and same returning Christians. In addition, brothers and sisters who have already returned come together to create a time and place where we can cross the church boundaries and have praise and fellowship.
④From John 15:16, we have been working with a vision of “bearing fruit”, and I feel that by having the brothers and sisters who gather through GiFT be connected with God and one another, in each church, community, workplace, etc. I think they can bear fruit.
⑤Since it’s Tokyo, so Skytree? LOL! Appeal points are the returnees Christians, churches, and many communities!
Here is what GiFT looks like ↓
Thanks to all the leaders!
Next time I will leave Kanto and introduce other community meetings!
It’s gonna be fun〜
