the fish that did not get away

Well, we’re back from our vacation. Our family had a great time. Nothing fancy. We just stayed in our camping grounds in Nebraska and did the following:

  • hung out with our parents.
  • fished.
  • ate.
  • fished.
  • played with the kids
  • fished.
  • swam.
  • fished.
  • and swam some more.

Despite not hitting my goal of catching 153 fish (I ended up with 92), I managed to catch the biggest bass fish I have ever caught. Here it is:

bass vs man. it was an epic battle. score one for man.

Some day, I’d like to work part-time as a fishing guide and possibly become a professional fisherman in my dreams. I would have my own TV show and it would look like this:

And here’s a few more pics from our trip:

    Congrats on the fish. Sounds like a great Sabbath–refreshing and rejuvenating.

    Pastor Cho,

    I appreciate how your blog is multifaceted. It is a blog about life (which entails everything from the really serious, e.g., race issues, to the light and fun e.g., fishing) and I really enjoy that. Thanks for sharing about life, all its complexities and all its joys.

    Also, your fishing pictures make me think of my younger days as a fisherboy (not man at that time!). I think I might have to get into that again.

  3. Congrats, really nice pics..

    Hit ‘Submit’ too fast…

    Assuming you used a lure. What did you use? any snags?

  7. […] had the most surreal phone call while I was fishing in Nebraska during my vacation. A guy named Nicholas Kristof called. For those that don’t know, Kristof […]

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

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
