For whose sake I have lost all things . . . .

Since he invited me to be a co-owner of this blog, I feel compelled to carry on Daniel Kim's work while he is away leading the Taiwan Mission Team. How fitting, then, that my inaugural post should be dedicated to the one who has brought us so much joy and laughter in the past few weeks.

Daniel Kim has lost his luggage. This might have been admirable had his loss occurred in the course of his service to Christ on the mission field, tirelessly preaching the Gospel without regard to himself or his worldly possessions. Alas, that was not the case.

The above photograph was taken yesterday, at 2:50 pm, two hours before the Taiwan Mission Team was to depart from SFO. Daniel is pictured standing in the Gracepoint Berkeley church building parking lot, eagerly seeking and saving the lost.

May his example inspire all of us staying behind to support the entire mission team with our prayers.

That was an awesome moment indeed =)

I would just like to say that the luggage was in my car. I grabbed it without looking at the name on it and threw it into my trunk. Since I didn't know who it belonged to, I couldn't tell him if I had it when he called me to ask. It was pretty funny when I got to the airport and Daniel was just looking at me, shaking his head. I would like to say how proud I am that I caused Daniel to be featured on Dis-Gracepoint.

I'd also like to apologize to all those who spent time searching North Loop for Daniel's luggage. It won't happen again.

Hurting. That's all I have to say.
