we need your help!

Friends, Supporters, & Blog Readers:

Thanks so much for journeying with my family this past year since I shared about our vision for One Day’s Wages:

“an international grassroots movement dedicated to ending extreme global poverty.”

It’s been such an intense year but we’re finally launching the organization tomorrow.  We’re excited, nervous, and everything in between..  The website will go live late tonight and we’ll be sharing with as many folks as possible in hopes that people will visit the website, read about ODW’s vision, and join our movement by simply donating one day’s wages and joining our online community.

Here are 5 ways you can help and we really need your help. Would you consider assisting us in getting the word out over the next few weeks?

  1. Visit the website and donate one day’s wages. That’s only 0.4% of your annual salary.
  2. Share tomorrow’s blog entry with anyone & everyone: Blog, Twitter, Facebook, etc.
  3. Share the website – http://onedayswages.org – on your Facebook profile. The site will go live late Monday night.
  4. If you use Twitter, retweet some of the tweets you’ll receive via my account or odw’s twitter account.
  5. Email your friends and ask them to check out the organization & website. Just a simple note will be so helpful.

Doing couple of the things above will only take you couple minutes but it’ll be immensely helpful to us especially because our strategy involves:

Human Relationships + Technology/Social Media + Vision = ODW Movement

Over the next few weeks and months, can you partner with us and spend a few minutes each day or week to help spread the word?

And if you’re interested in, here’s some logos you can use as widgets or images for your blog, facebook, etc.

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.
