words are not enough…

Thank you.

I’ve been wanting to share those two words for over a week but I’ve been waiting for a few pictures and some final numbers from the Inaugural One Day’s Wages Gala.

When we planned this event several months ago, I had my doubts if we’d be able to fill the 350 seat venue. Not only did we fill it, we somehow got 370+ through the doors, and after selling out couple days before the event, we had to turn away about 100 more interested people.

Some other amazing stuff:

  • Sponsors came in from around the country and covered all our event costs. Wow.
  • Guests flew and drove in from New York, Washington DC, Georgia, California, and Oregon. They even came from two foreign countries: Canada and Texas.
  • People’s generosity blew us away. You’ll have to click the picture below to see how much folks gave and pledged that night. Amazing.

Thanks again for your trust and believing in the vision. Minhee and I are grateful and humbled by your support and prayers and God’s continual grace over our lives.

In the upcoming year, we hope you’ll consider starting a birthday campaign or partnering in some way. Together, we believe we can make an impact in the fight against extreme poverty.

One Day’s Wages

The secret to being grateful is no secret. You choose to be grateful. Then you do it again and again. Every day. If you forget, start again. Back to fishing...I mean, umm...back to writing a book. There's no such thing as a self-made person. Someone believed, encouraged, and invested in you. Be grateful and be that someone for others.

Taking a break from the sabbatical...to partner in ministry in Denver at Cherry Hills Church and at the CRU staff conference. It was such a gift to be able to encourage a handful of folks one-to-one, a small group of Asian-American leaders from EPIC, and the larger group of 5000 staff during one of the sessions.

I've been personally blessed, challenged, encouraged, exhorted, and convicted by so many who have poured into my life - friends, acquaintances, and even strangers - and I hope to do that for others as I seek to be faithful to Christ.

Thank you, Lord.
#cru17 Nothing grows by itself. If something matters to us, may we be intentional about growing it.

Invest. Pray. Plant. Water. Nurture. Repeat. God sees and knows us. In fact, God knows everything about us.

Not just the good we try so hard to project but even the mess we often seek to hide.

Let this soak in: Not only are we fully known but in Christ, we are fully pursued and loved.

This is grace.
Amazing grace. Hairstyles change. Sideburn fads come and go but may our commitment to love, honor, respect, and be on mission together for Christ never waver.

Thank you, Minhee. I love you so much even if you made fun of my hairstyle and sideburns.
