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

Grateful for a very full weekend of ministry and preaching in Toronto, Canada (GTA). Such a privilege to partner with @worldvisioncan @wvcollective to advocate for the most vulnerable around the world. God is so gracious. A true honor to meet and encourage local pastors, lecture at Tyndale University & Seminary (photo), and preach at Richmond Hills Community Church, Compass Point Bible Church, and New City Church. Thank you, Lord, that you use broken and imperfect people like me to speak of Your love. Today, Minhee and I dropped off our eldest child at her college. We have been thinking and praying about this day for many years. On some days, we hoped it would never come. On other days, we couldn't wait for it to come. On some days, we prayed for time to stop and other days, we prayed with anticipation. 
After an entire summer of laughing it off, it hit us...hard...this week. Seeing all of her stuff laid out on the basement floor was the catalyst to a load of emotions.

After unloading the car and taking her stuff to her new home for this year and mindful that she might never live with us again; helping sort out her stuff, saying hello to her roommates...I wasn't sure what to do or say.

A flood of thoughts rushed my mind.

Is she ready?
Have we done enough?
Have we taught her enough? 
What if this? What if that?

And so we shared what we have shared with her the moment she began to understand words: "Remember who you are. Remember WHO you belong to. Remember what you're about. God loves you so much. Please hold God's Word and His promises close and dear to your heart. We love you so much and we are so proud of you." And with that, we said goodbye. Even if she may not be thousands of miles away, this is a new chapter for her and even for us. I kept it composed. Her roommate was staring at me. I didn't want to be that father. I have street cred to uphold. Another final hug. 
And I came home.
And I wept.
Forget my street cred.
I miss her. I love her.
She will always be my little baby.

I'm no parenting guru. I just laughed as I wrote that line. No, I'm stumbling and bumbling along but I'd love to share an ephiphany I learned not that long ago. Coming to this realization was incredibly painful but simultaneously, liberating. To be honest, it was the ultimate game-changer in my understanding as a parent seeking after the heart of God.

While there are many methods, tools, philosophies, and biblical principles to parenting, there is – in my opinion – only one purpose or destination.

Our purpose as parents is to eventually…release them. Send forth. For His glory. Met a friend and fellow pastor who I haven't seen in over 20 years. In him, I saw a glimpse of my future. While only 10 years older, his kids are married and he's now a grandfather of 3. His love for his wife and family were so evident and his passion for the Gospel has not wavered. It was so good to see someone a bit older still passionately serving the Lord with such joy and faithfulness. Lord, help me to keep running the race for your Glory. Happy wife.
Happy life. - Eugenius 3:16

I still remember that time, many years ago, when Minhee was pregnant with our first child. She had left her family and friends in Korea just two years before. Her morning sickness was horrible and when she finally had an appetite, she craved her favorite Korean food from certain restaurants in her neighborhood in Seoul, Korea. I had no way of getting that food from those restaurants so I actually said, "How about a Whopper? Big Mac?" Sorry honey. Eat away. You deserve it. I don't care if it sounds mushy but sunsets are one of my love languages. Seoul, Korea was amazing but WOW...what a breathtaking welcome back sunset by Seattle. Not ready to let go of summer. Seattle. 7:00pm. Desperately holding on to summer. #goldengardenpark #nofilter
