One Day’s Wages celebrates 3 years: A personal invitation to the Annual Gala.

Friends,

I want to invite you to join Minhee and I at our Annual ODW Gala on Friday, November 30, 2012. Whether you’re in Seattle, the Pacific NW, or anywhere, we’d be honored by your presence and support.

In three years, we have had over 10,000 people from around the world join the ODW movement. In addition, we’ve had numerous partnerships with musicians, artists, companies, and other organizations. Thus far, we’ve invested in 35 different projects around the world including our latest one to provide heart surgeries for 20 Iraqi children and provide 5000+ hours of training for Iraqi medical professionals so that in the future, they can perform these surgeries on their own.

From our inception, ODW has raised over $1.35 million dollars and our pledge is to invest 100% of donations in projects to empower those living in extreme poverty. Because of this pledge, the Annual Gala is the one public event that we ask supporters to donate directly to our operations. The funds raised tonight will help ensure that we are able to continue our mission of alleviating extreme global poverty and continue our commitment to allocating 100% of donations to projects to empower the poor.

Again, we’d be honored if you’d join us for the Gala.

If you’re unable to join us this evening, we hope you’ll consider making a donation to our operations in honor of our 3 year anniversary.

One Day’s Wages is you, me, us, and them all working together – with dignity and integrity – towards a more beautiful, just, and compassionate world.

Aloha. Mahalo. Hana hou. Ohana.

Thank you, Kona, the Whitlocks, YWAM, sea turtles, Nemo, Restorers DTS, and Scandinavian Shaved Ice. Our three children.

One will be heading off to college in one year. The 2nd in three years. In six years, Minhee and I will be empty nesters. As a young parent, my prayers for them often surrounded their purpose in life. While I still ponder those things, there are three things that I most pray for:

1. That they may love Christ and obey Christ. Not just the idea but to actually follow Christ and thus, to love people.

2. To hold God's Word - the Holy Scriptures - dear and near to their hearts.

3. To love one another and be there for one another for life. To be loyal to one another. To protect one another. To never allow pettiness, conflicts, jealousy,  money, or whatever to get between them in the future. Ever. 
May it be so. Amen. Kona sunset. #nofilter

Perhaps from the outside...things look great but this has been one of the most challenging years of our life. The most painful has involved one of our kids who've had to endure through a lifelong chronic illness. This year, we've gone to the hospital 3-4 times/week trying to get her better. Ups and downs. Emotional roller coaster. Parents will understand this but nothing hurts more than a sick child...especially when you can't "fix" the situation. We were praying that our trip to Hawaii would be a balm for her soul...but it has been hard. Really hard. Lots of tears hard. But soaking in this sunset with our kids is something we don't want to take for granted.

We continue to pray and hope. Hope is not that God promises us perfection or everything we want but that in all situations...God is with us. Believing - while faltering - in this truth for our child. My Hawaiian Seattle Korean queen. #kona @minheejcho A family that hikes together stays together. #kona #pololuvalley
