Eugene Cho

i am called to be a fisher of fish…

Just wanted you to know that I’m heading off for vacation with my family. Because of the ruptured achilles, we had to scratch the original plan of my dream of RV’ing around the States but perhaps another time. But, we are still doing a road trip (via Yellowstone National Park) and I will be spending most of my time enjoying my wife, the kids, and doing this (click on pic to see that huge beauty):

I will fish, catch, and release…cast, ruptured achilles and all. I will not be stopped because this man needs to decompress.

So, having said that, I won’t be blogging for the next couple weeks.  I may however (if I have internet access) post some pics of my prize fish catches. I’m also using this vacation to develop my new hobby of photography and may post some pics via Twitter – if you choose to follow me there.

I packed one book: Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places by Eugene Peterson.

See you in two weeks.

    Need your counsel. We would like to begin a ministry to new immigrants to our country in northern new jersey. I would appreciate suggestions of ministries to visit and talk to anywhere in the country. Blessings, Luis

    The fishing part doesn’t sound fun. But the decompressing and nature and family–that’s a riot.

There's no such thing as a self-made person. Someone believed, encouraged, and invested in you. Be grateful and be that someone for others.

Taking a break from the sabbatical...to partner in ministry in Denver at Cherry Hills Church and at the CRU staff conference. It was such a gift to be able to encourage a handful of folks one-to-one, a small group of Asian-American leaders from EPIC, and the larger group of 5000 staff during one of the sessions.

I've been personally blessed, challenged, encouraged, exhorted, and convicted by so many who have poured into my life - friends, acquaintances, and even strangers - and I hope to do that for others as I seek to be faithful to Christ.

Thank you, Lord.
#cru17 Nothing grows by itself. If something matters to us, may we be intentional about growing it.

Invest. Pray. Plant. Water. Nurture. Repeat. God sees and knows us. In fact, God knows everything about us.

Not just the good we try so hard to project but even the mess we often seek to hide.

Let this soak in: Not only are we fully known but in Christ, we are fully pursued and loved.

This is grace.
Amazing grace. Hairstyles change. Sideburn fads come and go but may our commitment to love, honor, respect, and be on mission together for Christ never waver.

Thank you, Minhee. I love you so much even if you made fun of my hairstyle and sideburns. I missed you, Seattle. Grateful for a time to pray, rest, retreat, read, reflect, and sabbath. I've spent the last 12 days in the woods alone. Competely alone. It's been both haunting and refreshing. Haunting because of loneliness. Refreshing because through the silence, I am reminded - again - that I'm not alone. Emmanuel.

Also, bought myself a cheap kayak and loving the solitude time in nature. Also, the kayak is paying instant dividends in my bass fishing game. #sabbathrest #bassfishing #catchandrelease
