a quasi extreme makeover

If you’re wondering why my blog posts are all fluff and no substance, it’s because we’re in a dang busy season right now.  Our church community began 27 days of renovation starting on Sunday, Aug 26.  We need to be done – one way or the other – so that we can re-enter our now current sanctuary for worship on Sunday, September 23.  For three weeks, we’re back at the warm and cozy Q Cafe.

It’s great to see people working together – laboring, sweating, talking, fellowshipping, spilling, laughing, creating, and problem solving.  There’s some level of stress involved here because we’re on a limited budget and we’re undertaking about 85% of the work on our own.  We’ve only contracted the painting inside the sanctuary.  We’re responsible for everything else [Gulp].

We’ve been laboring every night [M-F] from 7-10.30pm.  We’ve asked folks to donate 5-10 hours of sweat equity and a handful of folks are serving as projector managers and subsequently, giving about 30-40 hours.  Our hope is that the renovated campus [the church building and QCafe together] will not only serve our current community well but deepen our commitment to the larger city…

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

My Padawan. My son. My youngest. Encouraging him to not just hit the hoop courts but also the books. Minhee and I met these college boys when we first arrived in Seattle in 1997. They were part of our bible study that we led in our apartment for college students. They were also among the group of 7 people that helped start @seattlequest.

Much has changed in the world...but not their friendship and love. Thank you Jin and George. We love and honor you. These are crazy times in our country and larger world but nevertheless, we're going to keep pursuing the things that God has placed upon our hearts. We're pressing forward...doing our part to reflect mercy, compassion, and justice - locally and globally.

Wednesdays are my @onedayswages office day and I especially love the culmination of hard work for our interns, volunteers, 2 full-time staff, and board as we collaborate with our NGO partners. This week, we signed these checks as we granted out over $75,000 to provide better health care for mothers and their families in Mali and Nepal.

THANK YOU for making this possible Your classic play it cool because you're visiting your old stomping grounds at Princeton and pretend you're not cold but in actuality, you're freezing picture. 20 years, 2 weeks, and counting. What a journey with this woman. I love her...and I want to keep growing in love, honor, and respect. Great to catch up with @jlin7 in Brooklyn at the Nets game. Grateful for his partnership with @onedayswages to support our Girls' Empowerment Fund. The season hasn't been what he hoped for with major injuries...but we can't wait to see you back on the court soon and do what you do. Stay encouraged, brother. Thanks for your faithful witness for Christ.
