Thanks for your support, prayers, encouragement, and patience. Whether we’re ready or not, we’ll be launching One Day’s Wages on October 20 - which happens to be my birthday. Minhee and I are working, saving, and doing all that we can to make our 2009 salary donation on that date and we’ll be asking people to join us by donating their respective one day’s wages. More info and video to come.
But, can you keep all this in prayer? And knowing that people’s personal finances are tight but can you take a step of faith with us and prepare to make that donation as we launch One Day’s Wages?

This has been one of the most humbling seasons of our life. When we went public with our vision to give our year’s salary to start this poverty initiative, we had absolutely no idea about what was in store with the financial crisis and meltdown. Our convictions have been tested but each time we think about how “bad” we have it, we’re reminded of the grave situation for the poorest of the poor – those affected by “extreme global poverty.”
Here’s 5 Updates on our Progress:

While there are no guarantees if folks will ultimately support our organization, it confirms our aspiration for our initiative in helping change the world:
