Upper Room

photo (16)photo (25)We had another epic time at the Upper Room this last Friday loving our King…the presence of God was AMAZING!

Three Irish ladies cruised in from off the streets and got blasted by His love.  They were dancing, singing, and when Mac asked everyone to lift their hands to worship Jesus they lifted their hands too…ah, the goodness of God!

“I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living.”  (Psalm 27:13)

Crazy Good Weekend

photo (18)This last weekend we hosted 40 people at our home…God is good!

On Thursday around 2am a crew of 27 showed up from a church in San Diego.  They wanted to partner with us in serving Jesus Burgers.  They left Saturday morning and then another crew of 13 people from Sacramento showed up.  Overall, it was an amazing time of loving God, one another, and the city together!  And yes we had people sleeping all over from tents, to sheds, in the house, and a few other random places.

Our kids absolutely love when people visit…they to get to do all sorts of things that they normally don’t, hence paint people.

Jesus Burgers

Another random testimony, yay God:

Hi, my name is Heather and I am a 21 year old commuter who attends Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana. I just finished your book, Jesus Burgers, yesterday after purchasing it on Wednesday. I could have read it all in one day, but I was trying to stretch it out as much as I could! During my senior year of high school (I am currently a sophomore at Butler) I was supernaturally touched by the love of God when my leg grew out after my mom’s Bible study group prayed for it. I have never been the same since then, however, I still struggle every now and then but I am entering a new season with a fire in my heart for God and to see the city of Indianapolis come to know the love God has for them, especially college students. I am trying to meet others who have the same passion, but they are difficult to find. Do you have any suggestions on what I should do to either start a ministry like Jesus Burgers or to find others who might have a similar passion? It is a bit more difficult for me to do things with Butler since I don’t live on campus, I live about 25 to 30 minutes away, but I am willing to do something to get others to know the love that God has for them!

What you’re doing out in Isla Vista is amazing and I would love to personally go to experience it sometime. Thanks for sharing all of the wonderful stories in your book, I know there are probably hundreds more that you could share! God is SO good!

God Bless,
Heather

Isla Vista

It is that time of year where everyone is moving out and begins to throw their stuff onto the crub…the beauty of recycling furniture throughout the city of IV.

Upper Room

These 2 AMAZING sisters shared their testimony on Friday night…I am in awe of all Jesus has done in such a short time. The gal, Colette, in the bottom picture received Jesus at the Upper Room about a year ago…she is living at the Jesus Burgers House next year, yay God!

“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners;”  (Isaiah 61:1)

Thank you so much for writing and compiling this book.  I am a good friend of Lucas Bell’s and I direct a high school ministry at a church in Boulder, CO.  For a few years now I have been emphasizing a similar family style model onto our ministry.  Now that you have laid some very important questions and encouraging stories, the Lord is using your family’s story to change our ministry culture.

Appreciate what you guys are doing in IV as well.

Went to Jesus Burgers when I was a freshman at Westmont and had the greatest time.

Jeremiah (Chapter 1)

The word of the Lord came to me, saying,

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I set you apart;
I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

FMLYBND

The FMLYBND played at a house on Del Playa last Saturday…one of the more amazing things have witnessed in a while, as hundreds of partiers sung songs about Jesus! The love of God touched everyone, even if they couldn’t put words to what it was.
