I flew out to Chicago to meet some old friends, make some new friends, share a short chat on Human Life & Dignity and enjoyed the perks of some generous friends who took a couple of us to the U2 360 World Tour. Coincidentally, their tour launched in Chicago (the night before).

My family and I really don’t have the luxury to go to big concerts… In fact, this is only the 2nd “big” show I’ve ever been to [The first being my sophomore year in high school].

Anyone care to guess who I went to see for my First Concert?

Anyway, U2 was Read the rest of this entry »

resting, growing, freezing, and jazzing in chicago

Jet lag sucks.  I can’t seem to get over it.  I sleep at a normal time but have been getting up around 2 or 3am – every day.  I look at Jason, one of my church staff, sleeping in the other bed in our hotel room like a peaceful lamb and want to punch his head.  But, I remind myself that Jesus wouldn’t do that so I let him sleep since he probably doesn’t get much at Seattle with their 4 month old baby.  But I digress.

RESTING:  I’m here in Chicago trying to get my body up to speed.  I don’t care how holy or spiritual you are:  If you don’t get sleep, everyone turns into a jerk.  Actually took a great nap yesterday and woke up like this:

And interestingly or annoyingly, many folks at this conference have been telling my how ragged and “gray” I look. I tell them to ‘shut it!’  But it is true, I am getting some serious white and gray hair everywhere.

GROWING: Anyway, I’m also here learning.  Have enjoyed hearing from some of the featured speakers like Phyllis Tickle and will be hearing from Gary Haugen of International Justice Read the rest of this entry »

My prayer for my kids: Love God. Love people. And be there for one another for life. Most of us take water for granted.  It's as easy as turning on our faucet but approximately 748 million people in the world still lack access to clean water. This past December,  I had the privilege of visiting Myanmar and vividly remember walking the journey of what many have to do when they go to a nearby pond to get their water. As you can imagine, many get sick... We can't change the entire world but we can impact the world of some and most importantly, be changed ourselves. Partner with @onedayswages @worldconcern @miir to come alongside 7 villages in Myanmar that were devastated by Cyclone Nargis in 2008. - http://onedayswages.org Couple special days encouraging pastors and leaders from the beautiful state of Montana. Took some personal time for self-care to hike up this cliff. @SeattleQuest is on the move! Lots of mixed emotions but grateful for God's provision. We hope to move in to our new home this October.

Visit eugenecho.com to read the details and how you can pray for us. This is Makhosi Simelane - a Zulu woman in rural South Africa. There’s something about this smile that exudes hope.

@OneDaysWages is proud to launch our 75th partnership. This time with @ZimeleUSA. This grant will come alongside 150 Zulu women with training, skills, and tools. When a woman gains the farming skills to feed her children and increase her family's income,  that's what we call empowerment. 
Check out onedayswages.org. Yo. I have 5 audiobooks of my book, Overrated, to giveaway. Simply like and tag someone that might enjoy the ebook special.
