Life is a gift. Enjoy. Cherish. Invest in your soul. Much love and respect to @bryanpape @lovewinsdotcom and the team at @miir. They're amazing friends but also conspirators in Kingdom work though their support for @onedayswages and their company, MiiR. Over the years,  they have donated and/or raised over $100,000 towards our water projects. Truly incredible. 
And just recently,  they launched  the flagship MiiR store in Seattle featuring coffee, tea, beer on tap, and amazing products including bikes, tumblers, water bottles, growlers, etc. Check it out in the Fremont neighborhood and be inspired. The Cho high-school girls - @trintaay and @_jubileee. Born and raised among the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. The Creator of trees speaks deeply to my soul. #PacificNorthwest #MtBakerSnoqualmieNationalForest #myawaycontest Incredible family hike. Teaching our children about nature being one of God's many love languages. #myawaycontest A splendid sabbath evening in #Seattle with...geese and goslings. #honkhonk #gasworkspark
