happy new year!


I want to take this opportunity to wish all of my friends, family, church community, blog readers, and the larger community a very Happy New Year!

As some of you know, today [Monday, January 26] is the celebration of the Lunar New Year.  As we begin Year 4707 today  – the Year of the Ox, Minhee and I extend heartfelt blessings to you and yours not simply so that we languish in our own blessedness but are compelled to live lives of blessing unto others and the glory of Christ.

Lunar New Year isn’t just Chinese New Year.  Many of the Asian nations including Korea celebrate the Lunar New Year – Seollal [in Korean].   This is a very significant day for us.

While I’m currently enjoying my experience in South Africa, I am missing Minhee and the kids so much and wish I could be there to mark this day with them.  Thankfully, my parents are with them and I’m sure they are partyin’ it up.  

The picture above [from last year’s New Year] is a pic of Minhee and me in our traditional Korean clothes.  Let’s be honest here:  Minhee looks great but dang, I look hot in those pink pants.  We be Korean drama stars.

    Happy Lunar New Year, pastor Eugene! Great pic! ;) I have been one of your faithful readers and your blog has been a blessing. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

  2. Happy New Year! I showed my husband, who’s a Korean adoptee and not familiar with Korean customs, the photo of you in the pink pants. Nice. Does pink not have the same “female” sidnificance in Korean culture as it does here?

    Hugs! Elena

Grateful for your prayers, support, and generosity. Because of you, @onedayswages just sent off this $25,000 check to Catalyst Foundation and their work in Vietnam. This grant will improve the food security of many families of the Raglai people - one of the most marginalized and poorest ethnic groups in Vietnam. THANK YOU. A good Sabbath day of rest, reflection, and fishing at one of my favorite local places. Oh, and a beautiful silver salmon for dinner.

#deceptionpass #fishon #salmonfishing God is so gracious. Inspired by what God did at the #NewLifeConf in Colorado Springs. What a privilege to encourage other leaders and pastors. Thank you @pastorbrady67 for inviting me. The highlight was meeting the 30 or so men who are in a drug & alcohol recovery program. They sold banana bread to raise money to make their way from New Mexico to learn. What a reminder that God is a God of redemption. Caring for my soul today with a visit to the museum. Thank you @artsmia for always keeping art free. Love Minneapolis and this museum. The reason why I opt for the window seat. Smith Tower. Downtown. Final days of #Seattle summer 2015.
