JHF requires all new candidates to attend the five-day JHF Orientation, usually in Hong Kong, prior to serving in China. Orientation is in either August or Spring break. This enables candidates to get to know the people and work of JHF, and also provides important China orientation. We cannot over-emphasise the need to be as fully prepared as possible for living in China, and orientation will help provide this.
