Jesus Burgers

Well it has been 7 years now of serving “Jesus Burgers” in Isla Vista…so many stories, so many lives changed, so many seeds of love sown. Every Friday we have cooked up between 160 to 200 hamburgers, which have come to be known throughout the city as the “Jesus Burgers.” Rarely do I ever get to bed before 2am on this night, but it is well worth the sleep deprivation the next morning.

This last Friday I decided to take a few pictures on my cell phone. They’re a bit hard to see, but I figured I would post them anyway. In the picture of the one from the outside into the home the gal in the middle, Joe, had a great time hanging out with us and asking us questions about life. I had a good talk with Joe out in front of the house before she went inside and spent some time with Gwena and Tiffany (two of the girls that live in the ministry house).

We are all honored to be a part of what God is doing in IV and to get to show His love through a piece of meat, two buns, and a little ketchup and mustard. We are so thankful that our God is good and always in a good mood.

“But the goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.” (1 Timothy 1:5).

I love this quote of yours, "We are all honored to be a part of what God is doing in IV and to get to show His love through a piece of meat, two buns, and a little ketchup and mustard."

Wonderful writing! Thanks for sharing your ongoing story.
