Light & LIfe Goleta…now in IV

photo (26)A new church began in IV…it was in Goleta but they felt called to move it to IV!

They asked me to come on Sunday to pray a blessing over them for the kickoff service to IV.  I read them the Scriptures that marked IV Church beginning to do ministry in the city, Joshua 1:1-9

1 After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, the Lord said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ aide: “Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them—to the Israelites. I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses. Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, the Euphrates—all the Hittite country—to the Mediterranean Sea in the west. No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them.

“Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Family Camping

image (3)image (5)We were able to get away for 2 days this week to go camping as a family.  The kids had a blast playing at the beach, making smores, and sleeping in a tent.  We definitely had some adventures with the racoons and other animals, but hey it’s camping.

God is good to give us a little time away before the school year begin this next week…we are stoked for this next year – glory to glory!

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  (Jeremiah 29:11)

Lomelino Kids

I guess when you raise kids in IV this saying becomes more true:

Values are more often caught rather than taught

Hopefully we shall not caught my kids having a discussion about taking over the world from the top of my truck anymore. Lord help us to raise civilized children in a uncivilized place at times, haha

The Joy of Being a Dad

image (8)Raising kids and teaching them the ways of life is not for the faint of heart (at least if you want to do a semi ok job as a parent). We are beginning to teach Joanna how to use a pottie…so far we have had multiple causalities and no success in landing her pee or poo in the training toilet.

In light of thinking about new believers coming into the kingdom I have been telling the family we must be prepared to be ok with mess.  It’s through faith and patience that we inherit the promises (Heb 6) – the promise of people knowing Jesus and seeing a city transformed for His fame. There is no shortcut to helping people grow…it takes time, love, and a willingness to be ok with mess.

Joanna will hit the toilet one of these days and when she does we will rejoice, until then we will love her the same and continue to be her biggest fan!

Upper Room Pastor

We anointed/commissioned Jeremy Howard as the Upper Room pastor on Sunday.  Pretty remarkable day watching the baton be passed from Erik to Jeremy…please be praying for Jeremy as the time before Jesus Burgers (Upper Room) is essential to the family being on the same page and moving into the night with the same heart.

Chistina Perez

We laid hands and commissioned Christina Perez as the Director of Children’s Ministry on Sunday.  We are excited to see the next generation know God in a more intimate way and be equipped and trained in the things of Him.  God is faithful to grow His children into the men and women they are called to be, and we are honored to partner with Him in seeing this happen!
