we’re blessed. so let’s bless others.


If you have a birthday coming up at some point in the next 12 month and I really hope that you do, I’d like to share with you about a new ODW initiative called “Causes” which enables anyone to start their own personal cause campaign.

How?

Simply by donating your birthday, working one day for others, creating a group campaign, or even your creative ideas for a cause. [Learn more]

It takes 3 minutes to create your own page and if you don’t believe, this a 6-year-old girl donated her birthday campaign and shattered her personal goal.

Our pledge: 100% of all donations (minus credit card costs), you choose where to invest your campaign, and we’ll prove how these funds will be used.

As we’re blessed in so many ways, these are opportunities to bless others and make a dramatic and global impact.

Will you join us?

Also, we recently celebrated our 6 months anniversary at ODW.  Here are some highlights:

  • We awarded our first grant to a small Community Based Organization (CBO) in the Thailand/Burma border that provides education to over 6,000 migrant students.
  • We surpassed our $100K goal for our Haiti Relief Fund and our partners’ important work in response to the earthquake.
  • We funded our first project, a “Border Outpost” between Nepal and India with one of our partners. This project will help rescue several hundred Nepalese girls from the sex trade.
  • This company was our the first business to partner with us – with the goal of donating $60,000 to ODW and helping provide clean water for 3,000 people over 20 years.
  • This musician was the first artist to partner with us by donating 10% of his new album royalties to join our movement.
  • We just released news of our 1st album compilation in June. 21 artists and 21 songs and all towards the efforts to invest in people and orgs fighting extreme global poverty.

And in case you missed it, here’s our new video: A Movement of People, Stories, and Actions

One Day’s Wages

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 Wow. So proud of our 13 year-old son. When he began the trumpet in middle school, you could say it was a little painful. But this cat has got some groove. He's taught himself the piano, guitar, and really come along on the trumpet.

Parents: Fret not if you have no musical skills. I am living proof that musical genes or the lack thereof are not passed on. #AsianMilesDavis
