My name is Jonas Borntreger. I am 74 and retired from factory work; the father of nine. grandpa to eighteen, and husband to one. For many years I’ve been involved in various forms of Christian ministry, and some time ago I started trying to chronicle some of my ideas, teachings and experiences. It is hoped that this blog spot will turn into a form of blessing as I share some of these concepts with you.

Your reactions and insights to my posts will be greatly appreciated. JJB

I’m not one who’s got it all in place

Tellin’ you what you should do…

No, I’m just one old, hungry beggar

Showin’ you where I found food.

    Hi Jonas,
    This will be interesting. I’m impressed with anyone that can put a website together.

  2. Hey Jonas, I just started a blogspot myself. I am a former Amish preacher. I plan to write a book on the Midwestern Amish someday. Part of the purpose for my blogspot is to collect ideas/topics for my book. It seems your blogspot might be a good place to glean some ideas as well. Would you care to exchange links?

    John: I’m making the assumption that your parents are Sam and Barbara Burkholder. If that is the case then I am your mom’s first cousin. JJB

    Yes, Jonas,
    I enjoy your web blog very much! I haven’t read every thing, but liked what I read. Brother Joe doesn’t get online very much, so I am printing some out for him. He especially liked the chainsaw story, remembering some of it. He said our dad had one until he had to get rid of it. Didn’t make sense to Joe of course!
    Thanks for sharing the “Roar of the Lion”. That is good.
    Keep on! John
