this story makes me want to go back to high school

You need to read this story.

It’s inspiring, humbling and encouraging – really makes me want to go back to high school! A couple students from Palos Verdes High School contacted ODW about partnering with us to raise funds for our Haiti Relief Fund. I really didn’t think much of it but… Click here or the picture above to read the full story.

And for those who are curious about  ways to partner with the movement of ODW:

  • Put on a benefit event or even a simple house party.
  • Create a personalized community page just like this elementary school or Texas church.
  • And we haven’t made this public yet but I’ll share with with you since you guys are special. You can donate your birthday for the cause of fighting extreme global poverty.We’re testing in with this person from Taiwan and this person from Boston and it’s looking great. We’re launching this on April 1 but you’re more than welcome to sign up with us.
  • We’re also doing Work for a Cause – the same thing as your birthday but just asking you to work one day for free (or to fight global poverty). Any early adopters?
  • If you run a small business or a company of any size, become an ODW business partner.

I sincerely hope you can join us in some way or to mobilize your school, families, church, work, or organization. Please email: office (at) onedayswages.org or fill out this contact form.

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

Father - daughters bonding (and freezing) time at the Seahawks game. Grateful to the Panthers organization for the tickets. Now, go Hawks. Pound the Panthers. The family that karaokes together stays together. #ChoFamilyKPopFamily Family time in one of my favorite cities in the world - especially when the exchange rate is so favorable. Thank you, Vancouver, for being such a great refuge for our souls for the past 20 years. #QuestVancouver It's the day after...that day.
Be grateful. Again.
We woke up. We're alive.
Breathing. Dreaming.
Pursuing. Embodying. Loving.

It's never that perfect or easy but that we get to try to do these things is reason enough to be grateful to the One who gives us life.

Yes. Be grateful.
That you, Jesus.
#PreachingToMyself This is what real life looks like after a crazy couple weeks. Grateful for this woman. I love her. She's gonna scream at me for posting this pic. #ThoseSocksThough Grateful for the opportunity to encourage 2500 youth leaders & pastors at the @youthspecialties conference in Cincinnati, Ohio. Had prayed for wisdom to encourage leaders and courage to navigate a word for leaders post election about empathy and compassion for the unseen, marginalized, and those experiencing real fear.

Also, what a joy to have my church's youth pastor, @cobycagle, also here teaching. Some years ago, I was a youth pastor for several years in California, Korea, NY, and NJ. They were meaningful years but filled with challenges and loneliness. Sometimes, I felt unseen and insignificant - in comparison to "real" adult ministry. As a lead pastor now, I want to make sure I don't make those mistakes of overlooking our youth and children's ministry and their volunteers and staff. 
Pastor Coby, Pastor Katey, Pam, Jalle, and Jasmin: We see you. We appreciate you. We are grateful for your presence and leadership at Quest and beyond. Thank you and all of our amazing volunteers
