bill gates’ last day

This is a hilarious video of Bill Gates shown at the CES as part of his final keynote speech this past week.  I know that it’s easy to make fun of him because of the haircut, the nerdiness, the sweater, the Microsoft empire, etc. but the more I reflect on his legacy and particularly, his philantrophy and foundation, I’m amazed.  I know many younger folks are drawn to Steve Jobs of Apple, but there’s something very appealing about Bill that grows on me.

Check out the video. He’s got some notable friends…with funny cameos by Spielberg, Bono, Jay-Z, Barack Obama, and many more.

    i do admire what Bill has done for his creation of microsoft as well as what he is doing on the side to help the needy. BUT as you have seen on my previous comments on different topics, i just have to comment on everything…and at times interpreted as abrasive. for those who might be affended, i do apologize in advance. there are more that deserves out admoration as well as appreciating their presence in this world.

    a year ago, i have received an email from my coworker. he forwarded me a local newspaper article and the reason my partner in crime “Todd” will be out for 2 weeks from project management. The article was that of “Todd’s” brother in-law who was a camptain for US special forces. He was based in IRAQ and was hit with IMD while riding in his humvee. He initially survived approx. 2 mins after the hit. He took out a picture of his family before he died, and told another surviving soldier and said “Please, tell my wife and kids i love them, i will always be with them and will be looking down from above” Those were the last words.

    It is great to marvel on those who made fortune and giving away fortunes. however, should we idolize them as many do. There are those that are dying so that you and I can sleep safely tonight. Please support out soldier and pray for them, as they are doing you a favor by dying in Christian-hating country in hopes that we all can be safe.

    I may not be a Bill Gates fan, but that video was brilliant! If a guy like that is going to display his sense of humour, more power to him. I’m also not a Hillary fan, Obama fan, Al Gore fan, Jay Z fan, etc. but it all just added to the hilarity of it. You seem to have a knack at finding the best videos and sharing them here…the Rick Astley music video a few months back was awesome! Nice to find a pastor’s blog that has some comic relief now and then.🙂 Keep it up!

    Great entertaining fun video…where and who produced it???

    Maybe because of his family ties to Hollywood he will now become a film star..maybe not!

    I belong to the Cult of Mac. Even so, many in the mac community love and respect Bill Gates. The success of Microsoft, his ongoing philanthropy, his iconic contributions to the tech world and of course his history with Steve Jobs…it’s like the relationship between Magneto and Prof Xavier!

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

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 Wow. So proud of our 13 year-old son. When he began the trumpet in middle school, you could say it was a little painful. But this cat has got some groove. He's taught himself the piano, guitar, and really come along on the trumpet.

Parents: Fret not if you have no musical skills. I am living proof that musical genes or the lack thereof are not passed on. #AsianMilesDavis
