One Day’s Wages celebrates 3 years: A personal invitation to the Annual Gala.

Friends,

I want to invite you to join Minhee and I at our Annual ODW Gala on Friday, November 30, 2012. Whether you’re in Seattle, the Pacific NW, or anywhere, we’d be honored by your presence and support.

In three years, we have had over 10,000 people from around the world join the ODW movement. In addition, we’ve had numerous partnerships with musicians, artists, companies, and other organizations. Thus far, we’ve invested in 35 different projects around the world including our latest one to provide heart surgeries for 20 Iraqi children and provide 5000+ hours of training for Iraqi medical professionals so that in the future, they can perform these surgeries on their own.

From our inception, ODW has raised over $1.35 million dollars and our pledge is to invest 100% of donations in projects to empower those living in extreme poverty. Because of this pledge, the Annual Gala is the one public event that we ask supporters to donate directly to our operations. The funds raised tonight will help ensure that we are able to continue our mission of alleviating extreme global poverty and continue our commitment to allocating 100% of donations to projects to empower the poor.

Again, we’d be honored if you’d join us for the Gala.

If you’re unable to join us this evening, we hope you’ll consider making a donation to our operations in honor of our 3 year anniversary.

One Day’s Wages is you, me, us, and them all working together – with dignity and integrity – towards a more beautiful, just, and compassionate world.

One Day’s Wages

Our character is often evident in our highs and lows. Be humble in the mountaintops. Be steadfast in the valleys. Be faithful in the between. Quintessential Seattle summer night... Exciting news! While I can't share the specifics yet, Jeremy Lin (@jlin7) and @onedayswages will be partnering together. 
About a year ago, Jeremy reached out after he read my book, Overrated. We talked about, faith, gospel, justice, tenacity, influence, breaking ankles with our crossovers. Eventually, one thing led to another and then dreaming about collaboration for the greater Kingdom.

I appreciate his heart, his humility, and his commitment to use his platform for Christ. And of course, I'm thrilled for his new chapter as the starting point guard for the Brooklyn Nets. He's gonna have a great season. #jeremylin #linsanity #onedayswages #nba #brooklynnets // photo credit: @lovitylove I was trying to have a tender father-daughter grown up talk moment before she heads off to college next month. As in like, "Hey, you're a grown up now, floss regularly,  know who you are, what you're about, study hard, don't succumb to peer pressure, your relationship with God is the first priority, don't take too many selfies, know the difference between "their', 'there', and they're', watch out for boys and their cooties"... but...I'm having a difficult...time...focusing. This fall, I'm marking 25 years of serving as a pastor in the local church. Served in Sacramento, CA, Flushing NY, Princeton, NJ, Seoul, Korea, Lynnwood, WA, and now about 17 years in the city of Seattle. Minhee has been on this journey with me for almost 20 years. 
So many ups and downs. Lots of tears and restless nights. Lots of personal doubts and insecurities. But ultimately, we've experienced that God's grace is sufficient in our weakness. 
And along the way, so many incredible and indelible memories. 
Especially grateful to be invited into the joyous celebrations and also the deep moments of vulnerability and pain. Through it all, what an amazing joy and privilege to bear witness to the grace and love of Christ. Palm trees make everything feel better. Thank you to the kind folks of Mount Hermon for hosting us. Thank you, Santa Cruz for being Santa Cruz.
