THREE YEARS A MISSIONARY

Home missionaries “don’t count”,

But we work beside Zion’s mount…

Bringing the lost

To count the cost,

At home where iniquities mount!

Hopetown—the place where I was–

Dedicated to children who were lost…

Metropolitan New York

A challenging tort,

Kids with mental and physical loss.

Summer camps and residential,

God’s love never coincidental…

Let kids stay

And learn during play,

Accepting God’s love is essential!

–Jonathan Caswell

The above design is the insignia, if you will, of HOPETOWN, the residential program, and  CHILDREN’S BIBLE FELLOWSHIP OF NEW YORK, the over all organization, near Carmel, New York.  The author was on staff therefor both residential and summer ministry opportunities—for three years.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
