@vsco x #jesusburgers
There is definitely a story behind every piece of clothing I own/wear.
I haven’t worn this yet since it just came in, but immediately upon seeing it, memories came flowing through my mind.
I lived at the Jesus Burgers house in Isla Vista, CA for 3 years of my life during my time at UCSB. To describe Isla Vista in a brief nutshell, it’s a town of 20k students packed into one square mile. IV is mostly known for its wild parties and indulgence in drinking, sex and drugs. While there is a majority of students and residents who refrain from partying and all, UCSB/Isla Vista is known as a party school/town.
Bring in Jesus Burgers. It was home to 15-17 people during my time there; upstairs housed the women and downstairs housed the men. We all loved Jesus. If it weren’t for Him, I don’t believe most of us would have been friends. I am extremely thankful for the relationships and friendships God gifted me while at the JB house.
Jesus Burgers is a ministry whose heart is the love the city of Isla Vista. Every Friday, in the heart of Del Playa, Isla Vista’s main party street, we started our night with worship & prayer in the Upper Room.
Then, we would move into the living room and front porch of the Jesus Burgers house to prep for a night of grilling and spiritual encounters.
Loving all who came through could never be any simpler: grill a burger, add ketchup and mustard in the shape of the cross, and serve it to the hungry guests.
Best part, we knew it came out of the love of Christ. We knew with each burger given and person met, Jesus’ love was infiltrating an otherwise dark city.
Some of my craziest & amazing experiences with God was during my time with the Jesus Burgers house and ministry.
Thanks Jesus for Jesus Burgers.
I’m just like, “wow,” right now. #wcw x #evelyninfrontofthings x #hoangfu // @vsco #vscocam (at Old Mission Santa Barbara)
currently I am the youth director at my church and am serving on leadership. it’s been a blessing and I love building His church and loving His people. preaching/teaching/shepherding has been something I’ve been extremely thankful God has blessed me with.
I’m also very thankful for my current job as a barista at Philz Coffee @ Facebook HQ. their motto is “better people’s days.” and that’s what I’m all about. my passion is for people.
one thing I heard recently that’s really stuck with me was, “don’t trade your passion for a paycheck.”
while I might not be making the most money and am seemingly “unsuccessful” by my peer/parents/personal standards, I’m blessed to be able to pursue my passion for people and humbly serve God’s kingdom.
to a future of trials, tribulations, and refined gold… my next chapter is bustling.
