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

"He Makes All Things New." In other words, Christ is our eternal hope. I'm sitting in my swinging bench on the comforts of my front porch after an exhilarating and exhausting day at church. It never gets tiring, stale, or old to preach and proclaim the good news of the Gospel - not just on Resurrection Sunday but every week as we gather as the body of Christ.

But it was this picture of Coptic Christians in Egypt pouring into churches on Easter Sunday that deeply moved my heart...just a week after two churches were bombed by ISIS terrorists taking 45 lives and injuring hundreds.

Even in the face of persecution and suffering, I'm so grateful for the witness of these sisters and brothers in Christ. May they be comforted and strengthened...and wherever you are reading this post, stay encouraged. Be faithful and steadfast. Don't give up. May we keep running the race set before us as we fix our eyes on Christ.

It's not just there. It's all over the world...God is still at work. The Holy Spirit is still moving. God is not yet done. There's only one explanation: 
Christ has risen! He has risen, indeed! Jesus is alive! Hallelujah! #OneChurch Remember, there is no Resurrection without the Crucifixion; No Easter Sunday without Passion Friday; No empty tomb without the Cross.

So, before we move too swiftly to the celebration of the risen Christ, may we sit at the foot of the Cross...and consider the depths of His sacrifice and love. "Oh, what love is this..." Just when we think we get what it means to follow Him, Jesus washes the feet of His disciples including...the one He knew would betray Him,

and the one that would deny him,

and the others that would abandon Him in His greatest need.

What amazing love.
What amazing grace. Oh. What. Amazing. Grace. M(inhee) + E(ugene). Not taking anything for granted. 20 years = 7300 days = 175,200 hours. A flourishing  marriage doesn't just happen. The idea that two Christians who choose to get married will produce a Christ honoring marriage is a gigantic myth. Its also extremely dangerous. The truth is that it takes so much intentionality and work. Intimacy definitely includes physical touch but is not only about physical touch. We have to pray, read, listen, learn, mutually submit, confess, forgive, repent, laugh, dream, rest, play, and the list goes on.

In other words, we have to keep Christ at the center because it's inevitable, there's a lot of messing up. So much messing up. It's both beautiful and painful and without grace, it's impossible.

Grateful. Thank you, Jesus, for your grace. And thank you, Minhee...
