Eugene Cho

happy birthday to me

Well, it’s my birthday this Saturday.  I’ve never asked for anything.  Never asked for a special party or even a cake; Never asked for any special toys or gadgets; Never asked for a payraise.  Never asked for any gifts or special perks. 

But this year, I’m asking.  I would like this…

A Roadtrek B Class RV.  Ok, I’m kidding. Sort of.  Someday, my dream is to drive around North American for couple years with my family…someday.

Actually, Minhee and I are getting more and more excited and scared about the possibility of starting another dream and conviction of a non-profit foundation in the next year.  Our hope is that this foundation will support causes of justice, compassion, and mercy – particularly for women and children – in the larger global community. When the time comes next year, you’ll be hearing more about this and we will be sincerely asking for your help.

    May your dream(s) come true, including a Roadtrek B Class RV. Too bad that wouldn’t take you to Russia!

    Eugene — Happy early birthday! I love how the background of the RV photo is all blurred — it’s not just a cruiser, it’s a *racing* cruiser! Glad to hear that there are more big dreams…

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

Father - daughters bonding (and freezing) time at the Seahawks game. Grateful to the Panthers organization for the tickets. Now, go Hawks. Pound the Panthers. The family that karaokes together stays together. #ChoFamilyKPopFamily Family time in one of my favorite cities in the world - especially when the exchange rate is so favorable. Thank you, Vancouver, for being such a great refuge for our souls for the past 20 years. #QuestVancouver It's the day after...that day.
Be grateful. Again.
We woke up. We're alive.
Breathing. Dreaming.
Pursuing. Embodying. Loving.

It's never that perfect or easy but that we get to try to do these things is reason enough to be grateful to the One who gives us life.

Yes. Be grateful.
That you, Jesus.
#PreachingToMyself This is what real life looks like after a crazy couple weeks. Grateful for this woman. I love her. She's gonna scream at me for posting this pic. #ThoseSocksThough Grateful for the opportunity to encourage 2500 youth leaders & pastors at the @youthspecialties conference in Cincinnati, Ohio. Had prayed for wisdom to encourage leaders and courage to navigate a word for leaders post election about empathy and compassion for the unseen, marginalized, and those experiencing real fear.

Also, what a joy to have my church's youth pastor, @cobycagle, also here teaching. Some years ago, I was a youth pastor for several years in California, Korea, NY, and NJ. They were meaningful years but filled with challenges and loneliness. Sometimes, I felt unseen and insignificant - in comparison to "real" adult ministry. As a lead pastor now, I want to make sure I don't make those mistakes of overlooking our youth and children's ministry and their volunteers and staff. 
Pastor Coby, Pastor Katey, Pam, Jalle, and Jasmin: We see you. We appreciate you. We are grateful for your presence and leadership at Quest and beyond. Thank you and all of our amazing volunteers
