ODW: we’re hiring, launch date, and iPhone app


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?

Here’s three simple updates:

  • We’re Hiring.  We’re looking for someone to join our small team as our Operations Director [here’s the job posting]. The full-time salary isn’t glamorous but such is the nature of our start-up non-profit. We’re also looking for Interns who are able to volunteer 10+ hours/week. Asides from general “I Will Do Anything” interns, we’re looking for folks with skills in Graphic Design, Web Design/Coding [Drupal is a big Plus], Grant Writing, Accounting/Bookkeeping, Social Media, Event Planning, Fundraising, etc. Resumes and cover letters for both the Operations Director and Intern positions can be emailed to eugene@onedaywages.org
  • ODW Website. As I shared above, we’ll be ramping it up in the coming weeks. Hopefully, we’ll have the beta version of http://onedayswages.org available by early October. We’re still working on it and testing it out.  But early reviews and responses about the website have been very positive. Can’t wait to share it with you as well as the 1,035,000+ people in our Facebook Group. You can see a preview picture of the website here. But you can keep up with our progress via Twitter.

  • ODW iPhone app. I don’t even  own an iPhone but I’m very excited. One of my blog readers was gracious enough to create this. He’s still working on it but we’re excited to release this as part of the launch of our movement.

    Love it bro…Praying God bless your family, your church and ODW.

    Shalom!

  2. I’ll be joining you on Oct. 20 for sure.

    And I will be getting as many people as I can on board for the launch and first sail. 🙂

    Hope you don’t mind, but I might make it only 1/2 day’s wage now and then 1/2 more a little later on. Just a budgeting trick I will need to do.

    It is beatable! We just need to change one mind at a time, one attitude at a time, one life at a time.

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

You can do it, sun. Break through the clouds. I love her. Saturday morning date at Pike Market with @minheejcho. Enjoying the final day of sun before 6 months of rain and gray. Not lol'ing. Some of my moat memorable travels have been to Myanmar (otherwise known as Burma). In fact, the vision of @onedayswages began on my first visit to this country in 2006. On a recent visit, I began learning about the Rohingya people. Sadly, it has escalated to horrendous, genocidal proportions.

Thus far, about 500,000 people have been driven out from Myanmar through violence...with most going to Bangledesh...regulated to a massive refugee camp. Stateless. Undocumented. Minority groups. Dehumanized. Homes and villages destroyed. And so much more unspeakable atrocities.

Yes, it's complex and messy. It always is. But the root of this injustice as the case for so much brokeness in the world is the sin of dehumanizing one anotber as..."the other." May we see each person, including the Rohingya people, as one who is created in the image of God. It's the truth and the remedy to the incessant dehumanization that goes on in our world.

Lord, in your mercy. The obedience of discipleship which includes the work of justice is a marathon. It's long, arduous, and emotional. Be tenacious. But also take care of yourself. Create healthy rhythms. Don't burn out. We need you for the marathon. Friends, don't give up. Press on. In the midst of so much chaos in the world, may we continue to cling to the hope of the whole Gospel. May we cling unto Jesus:

Way maker!
Miracle worker!
Promise keeper!
Light in the darkness!
That is who You are!

What an encounter with the Holy Spirit at @seattlequest today. Grateful for our worship team, the gospel choir, and the Audio/Visual team. Thank you Matt, Teresita, and Chris. Please thank all the volunteers for us. .
The world is broken.
But God is not yet done.
God's work of restoration
is not yet finished.

This is our hope.
God is our hope.
