For three years, the man who is also a head pastor at Quest Church in Seattle with his wife and her three must tighten the belt in order to raise funds. They run a very simple lifestyle even to sell the goods if not too important, for the sake of the Mission of the savings. And as a result, funding of $ 68,000 or the equivalent of almost 1 Billion (at current rate) successfully collected and ready to be used to build One day’s Wages.

The biggest problem in the world, according to Eugene
In a written interview, Eugene Cho got to get questions about whether in fact the biggest problem is being faced by the people in the world today and how the solution to the problem.
Eugene replied, the most urgent social problem is the size of mutual hate, fear, discrimination and ignorance of the fiber. But actually the source of the problem is we don’t really know what we are afraid, we don’t really know what they (the person, group, trust) that we hate. This is all because we are too afraid to find out his sincerity.
One very inspiring advice from Eugene is, when you have a person or group who hated, Eugene challenges us to presume to sit one table, may be packed together with each other and ask what exactly is the problem between us and them. When we can begin to talk from the heart to the heart, then the gateway to mutual understanding will open wider.
