The DP house (so called because of its location on Del Playa street) has in some ways served as the home base for IV church over the course of the last 7 years. Before we became a church family that consistently gathered together on Sundays in IV, we already had a home on the infamous party street known as Del Playa. For the city this house has become known as the “Jesus house,” mostly due to the Jesus Burgers being served there on Friday nights during the school year. Yesterday, when I was at the house, a group of people walked by and I heard one of the guys say to his buddy, “Hey bro, that is the Jesus house, those people rock!”
This next year is the greatest turnover of people we have had at one time in the home – 12 out of 14 people will being moving out & 12 new people will be moving in! This last weekend the gals who lived upstairs this last year all moved out, which marks the first time in 7 years that the house has been completely empty. Yesterday I went by with Hope & Barnabas (our dog) and snapped some pictures on my phone…Derrin put Hope to work, while Barns surveyed the place.
