The Word Became Flesh

“The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood.”

Holly and I are so thankful to live in Isla Vista and raise our kids in this city (w/Barnabas our dog).  We love the city Isla Vista &  living life in a way that allows for others to be a part of it.

Renewal of Vows – 10 Years

Holly and I renewed our vows on Saturday with family & friends.  God is good, and every year of marriage keeps getting better!

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.” (Ephesians 5:31-32)

Family Time

For the IV Church family eating together is a big part of doing life together.  We are beyond thankful to experience family, fun, and food on Sunday as a body!

“They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” (Acts 2:24)

Encouragement

“I received my much-awaited copy of Jesus Burgers tonight and just finished reading it cover to cover. My mind is blown at the amount of His glory you were able to fit into one place. God is using you to encourage far more people then you will ever realize. I eagerly look forward to seeing the way God continues to bless your faithfulness to live as an example of Christ!”

* the same guy bought 12 copies the next day, yay God!

Hope’s Photography

Hope got her hands on someones camera in the IV Church family and took these pictures…I love my daughter, not bad for a 5 year old with an iPhone.

Samuel in the background–confused why Hope is taking pictures, haha.

Another Random Find

I found this picture today, classic.  Unlike Burger King, it’s about having it the King’s way, not always our way.

Jesus Burgers (Cross = Love)

The intro of the Jesus Burgers book mentions this familiar picture…sometimes, depending on who is preparing the hamburgers, the buns look like this. I must say, I have tried to duplicate this look and lets just say it did not look like this picture (it is harder than it looks, haha).

Woman of God

I love my wife and I thoroughly enjoy watching her share her heart about IV, life, and the kingdom.  This is a picture from yesterday at our Jesus Burgers book celebration/service…we gave away a free copy to everyone at the gathering!

Pslam 126

“When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dreamed.  Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations, ‘The Lord has done great things for them.’  The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.

Jesus Burgers House – Ladies

Here is a picture of the ladies living at the Jesus Burgers House this summer…they were celebrating Heather’s (in the front with the headband) 21st birthday!  Please pray for these ladies, as they are integral to the work of God in IV, IVC, and the city.  I could not be more thankful or who God has selected to live at the Jesus Burgers home this year.

Jesus Culture Conference

I had the honor Saturday to speak at the Jesus Culture Conference in LA.  A pastor from Houston and I shared from 8am-9am to a group of 80-100 college age students.

We shared a little about our own story of what we have seen God do in our lives and what has been effective in our ministry. Obviously, I bragged about Jesus and what God has done at Jesus Burgers over the course of these last 10 years. I also spent time sharing about the importance of seeing church as a family and the fruit of investing into lives to further the gospel.

God is good, Saturday was an amazing day!  Speaking in the morning also gave me backstage access to the conference…our friend Jake Hamilton, who has been a voice of encouragement to me, played Saturday morning (it was a super sweet time of watching a sea of worshipers praise God together).

IVC Family Dinner

Here are a few pictures from dinner on Sunday.  We are so thankful to be able to eat a meal together and enjoy one another.

Jesus has given us a gift in family. We have found over the years one of the best ways to help foster family is through eating together. We have hosted dinner every Sunday after the Gathering this summer.

The IV Church family has been so helpful this summer to cook yummy meals…it always helps Momma Holly to have other people making the dinners.

Encouraging Words

Here is an email I received from one of our IVC family members that was sent to the nations this summer (Yay God, He is good!):

Hey Jason!

I really miss you all at IVC and am extremely homesick. But two people on my team totally remind me of our family and we have been prophesying together. And I was able to pray for two people on my team  to be healed of injuries and He pulled through! Excited to take it back to IV and hang out with people Friday nights. But yeah hope all is well say hi to everyone for me, especially Holly and the kids.

Sunday Dinner

This last Sunday we did dinner at the Sueno Guys house on our street.  All of the guys in the house, besides one, are interns with IVC this year.

Katie Curry, one the gals in the IV Church family, blessed us with some yummy Curry (very appropriate, haha).

I love that the early church was devoted to eating meals together and that same Spirit is in His people today…it is for sure in the IV Church family, yay God!!

“They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” (Acts 2:42)

* check out Joanna in the picture above…her first time going up stairs caught on camera – good job baby Bonita

Art From the Heart

Our friend Christina Perez comes over weekly to do art with the kids…what a gem, who does that??  The kids absolutely love it and are always so excited to share with dad what they made each time.  This week they made kites to fly on a windy day.

“I tell you with certainty, unless you change and become like little children, you will never get into the kingdom of heaven.” – Jesus
