EC Reunion is coming!

Hello hello, my name is Kristine Reddington and I’m an associate staff for JCFN 🙂

Last year, I had the privilege of serving as the EC20 Beyond director.

It is crazy to think that it has already been a year since then.

How has God been speaking to you these days? Have you enjoyed LISTENing to Him :)👂?

So! Because we didn’t know how things were going to be with COVID, we are NOT having our usual EC this year😢 But!

We are having an EC Reunion online🥳🎉👏


1/21(Fri) 6pm~9pm (Pacific time) + optional hang out

1/22(Sat)11am~2pm (Japan time)


We will have EC / post EC testimonies, short sermons from last year’s EC speakers, sharing time in breakout rooms etc. so it should be a great time✨

I’m hoping we will get to reflect on the past year as we remember what God has done at EC and beyond.

Recently, I’ve been feeling so distracted – I’m realizing that I haven’t been stopping to really LISTEN. Although I am not always faithful, I am so thankful that God continues to speak to me and never gives up on me.😭💖 So! wherever you are in your life/ your spiritual journey, I hope you’ll get to join us! (Those who’ve never been to EC are also welcomed👌)


Thanks be to God who is constantly speaking, who is always reaching out to us..💓

I’m so excited to see you all!

Returnee Support Worship Playlist

As part of our 30th anniversary project, we have been publishing “Returnee Support Worship Playlist” since January. This is a monthly Youtube playlist based on the songs that encouraged the returnees before and after returning Japan, and the themes that have been on their mind.

■■Here is the Worship Playlist for January and February.■■

January Worship Playlist
Worship Playlist from EC20 Beyond

February Worship Playlist
One of the struggles that returnees must overcome is the question, “Is God with me?” You cannot feel the presence of God that you experienced abroad. There are days when you feel lonely because you are the only Christian in your environment, and there are days when your family and friends don’t understand you and you think, “No one understands how I feel.” However, God is the God of Immanuel, the God who is with us. He knows every thought you have, and not only does He know, but He understands and comforts you.
“You have written my wanderings. Please store my tears in your sackcloth. Or are they not written in your book?” Psalm 56:8
God knows all your loneliness, sorrow, and burdens, and it doesn’t matter if you are overseas or in Japan. God is sending you many comforting messages through the Bible. I pray that you will read His Word, turn it to your faith, and be encouraged through the praises in this playlist. God will not forsake you. As the Bible says, He is “the God of Immanuel.”
