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

This was 10 years ago. I dominated my son in wrestling and I know what you're thinking, "How could you employ a rear chokehold armbar kimura on your own son?" Hey, a competition is a competition.

I love you, son. The world is broken. This ia a sad truth. But the story of redemption is not yet finished. God is not yet done. This is the ultimate Truth. Have hope. Press on. Ten years ago, I witnessed one of those "God things" when a church called Interbay Covenant Church gave itself, its legacy, and a building property worth $7 million dollars to @seattlequest. We were then only 5 years old.

Quest is an urban, multiethnic churchplant that started in 2001. We rented the facilities at Interbay Covenant Church - a predominantly older, mostly Anglo congregation with a rich 65 years history. After some time, Pastor Ray Bartel (senior pastor, Interbay) approached me with a "crazy idea" of Interbay "dying to itself and giving itself to Quest" for the sake of the greater Kingdom and the coming generations.

This eventually led to three years of many conversations and prayers. On June 3, 2007, the two churches officially came together to become one church. In giving itself, Interbay also shared their leadership, legacy, and stories. They also gave all of their assets without any strings and without any debt.

Their radical generosity and courage is what enabled Quest to grow - not just numerically - but deeper in discipleship, and deeper in missions - to the city of Seattle and beyond. On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of this merger, we created a short film (check my FB page to see the video) to tell the story - so that our church and the next generations may never forget and that the larger Church may be stirred and encouraged by a greater Kingdom vision.

Thank you, Interbay! The NBA season is over but the hustle and grind continues for my daughter. We argue sometimes but I love training my daughter. She's working hard for her senior year next year. Starting point guard. She's improved a lot. She's one of the quickest players on the floor and has a great midrange jumper. But trying to get her to keep working on her handles, using her off hand and shoulder to protect the ball,  staying and dribbling the ball lower to the ground, and playing aggressive and downhill while remaining in control. That's what we're working on this week. #hoopdreams #ChovarBall Reunited with my favorite elephant, Buh'loom. We bonded earlier this year and I'd like to think that she recognized my voice. Also, appreciate learning about ethical and sustainable eco-tourism. Anywhere. Everywhere. Night markets are the best.
