I want to thank each of the readers n followers of the Hobo Univercity. I’ve just reached 4 year anniversary with my blog and this addictive blogging stuff. I never dreamed it would become an obsession n ritual but thanks to all my supporting friends n readers I now operate a website n drawing interests into things in life n living once again.
The biggest thanks goes to Jesus for being here in spirit specially when I’ve needed him most. All the prayers n answered requests of guidance n just nudging me along at times I thought I’d never write another post. Being thankful for just being able to see another sunrise n sunset. Thank you Jesus.
Thanks to Ma Hope my wonderful wife for putting up with all my mood swings n writing slumps for motivating me when I needed it most. For the guidance n patience a caring woman she is offers at times even a cattle prods of advices n ideas. Live endures all it is said well she is proof of just that. How do you repay somebody for all the kindness n good they provide. It is immeasurable the amount of dollars I owe each one of you. May God’s light shine down this day n always to each n everyone of us working the trenches n internet blogs n all the good you are trying to incur in a dismal undeserving world we live in. Someday soon I pray we live in peaceful harmony with our neighbors n adversaries in such a way as to unify a world to a peaceful beginnings and never ceasing in life living for love for us all equally .
Happy Holiday Cheers,
Hobo Univercity’s Missions
My true and faithful all through my life you have my heart and soul how do I know,thank you.
I pray this day your healing power touches Sandy. Her back pain, her feet, depression. Please lift my mission to you Jesus. As it has grown I have learned as your humble servant to listen, hear your voice. The thunder rolls, this mighty soldier is ready at your call Jesus. I seek only Satan, so many imitations of him through the demons of his world,not mine.
I feel your hand upon me, your rock I build your Homeward Bound take my golden heart n this Holy Ground I walk upon and give it life through me Lord.
The body ripe roll, the grapes of your wrath will be over in a heartbeat. These hills mark my family and its ancestral right. I know something telling my soul to keep on this trail. Untimely to onlookers protect and lift me through these songs I sing. Hallelujah, Jesus, Hallelujah,Heaven.
Praise be to you,forever let my light so shine!
Thank you Jesus!

I need to get down there and see this B.s.
Heath Harris 7y
For real. This guy is new in town and has some great ideas. He told me to send people his way.
RØB Severson 7y
Is this intended to be a permanent setup? I am more intrigued than you might imagine! What else can you tell me about it?
Heath Harris 7y
Pancake, yes, it is this guy’s vision to establish a school in this building. He says he is talking with the owner.
Keep in mind this is my interpretation of the project. The best idea is to take up The Amish Hobo on his invitation to interested parties to pay him a visit – just north of 1st and O’fallon streets.
From what I gathered in our exchange, Jeremiah wants to bring together the skills and knowledge of country folk, the Amish for example, with the resources of the city. He talked about living simply for the earth, that the hobo lifestyle has much to teach our society about how to utilize increasingly limited resources.
He wants to give a voice to homeless (but he does not like that word – he prefers Hobo, which apparently comes from the term “homeward bound”. Bikes and bike trailers are an important piece of the university, as they will empower folks without the resources to own a car to be mobile and acquire the recyclable castoff stuff needed to build the university, while reaching out to a wider geographical area.
The plan also includes urban farming, and reintroducing basic human knowledge to a generation that may be the first in history to not know how to feed themselves without supermarkets and microwaves.
All of this is wrapped up in a rather lighthearted approach, with humor and art as the platform for spreading the word. When I spoke with him, Jeremiah seemed to be all there. He has chosen to come to Saint Louis (fairly recently) to establish this operation. I think he knows what he is doing, and I just want to lend what help I can by introducing Hobo University to those who might be curious via Flickr, etc. I have always found Saint Louisans to be a welcoming people, so if you are interested enough to still be reading this, go say Hi!
RØB Severson 7y
Yeah I love the idea. A friend and I have been planning a technology-free “hobo trip” for awhile now, this feller could almost certainly offer a wealth of useful information. Is he really Amish?
Heath Harris 7y
Half-Amish, Full-blooded Hobo. He is living just behind the stage area in the photo above. If you see his bike with trailer, he should be around. Just ask for Jeremiah.

i’m enrolling for spring semester! i came by here with some friends to talk to him this past summer since it looked welcoming — he’s definitely a very interesting guy, and, i’d agree, he seemed ‘all there’. just fed up with the BS like a lot of us. he didn’t mention HBU, but with these pictures, i can see the vision. thanks for posting this!
Heath Harris 6y
My pleasure, Mr. Alaska. Spread the word – Homeward Bound!

to tell you my story, you would never believe the half of this. my name is General Bebo T Hope a self appointed seven star General of God’s Army. The ‘Amish Hobo’ Jeremiah and I put the cornerstone on the Hobo university in October 2009. by December I was deported to an apartment on the south side of the university. but… before leaving I raised the flagship on the tent City(an actual tent city in Downtown St Louis right below the parking lots for the foortball stadium, fact I herd they wanna tear down the original university and put a 200 million dollar football stadium for a losing football team and occasional joyce Meyers convention, just jokin ms joyce. instead of givin me that monies and fixin the building for the rightful owners the homeless of the central states of America!! go figure) . As the head chef and bottle washer and coffee conussuer I helped the owne,r Mr Green, & two off duty st louis finests design and almost implemented it a ‘Whispering Winds Retreat’ (details laid out in web site hobounivercity.com)
Now I am a disabled veteran service connected disbilitys drawing a slim to none pension the army gives us but…
the rest of the story is unfolding before your eyes as I am resurrecting the plans and either a double vision on Lake of the ozrks area and st. Louis Missouri kinda a town n country retreats. for the homeless veterans and other homeless folks and right now I need your funds and dollars and pennies and gold to build this ship with wheels and legs to stand on. we can bring Mr Greens dream to life. over the past 7 years I have built this computer center hub I call it the International Headqurters of the Hobo Univercity. we are located on the shores of the Lake here in Climax Springs, Missouri have signed many soldiers into God’s Army since I left St louis so please call 5736470599 and we can chat a bit. as mr Bojanges can dance . God grant us Peace in our lives this day and forward.

“the abstraction of molasses from sugar cane”
during my study of abstact art Weldon the ‘wizrd’ n I entered
a photo contest with a shot of a garbage can with the old lid hanging
on top we took the shot and in the darkroom we experimented with
‘solarization’ process of the print while still in the developer bath we hit the
strobe light quickly and it produced an eerie gray effect over the print causing
the old garbage can to glow with a silvery greyish emulation.
we mounted the photo on print board and entered this ‘garbage’ into the contest.
Took first place overall in the competition.
Thought to enlighten the form of these two abstactions for your enjoyment.
Now the big surge of abstraction is gonna be posting this thang for the daily post
don’t know how Clark ever got his in the daily planet I reckon ole Lois had
sumptin to doing with their teamwork,
One day I might even dig up the ole team members n print my ownrag or three
but right now the General is gonna see if Mr White will get er in the late edition or tomorrow’s Daily Post.
green green grasses of my homeland… that would b Chicago and I ain’t no saint ,yet. I’m doing the right thang evry day to see the green O’Malley only talked about in his tales of his crypt. They say to hold a lepracaun he will take you to his golden treasure. Hmm so’ s if in’s I hold myself, I may find me gold in the bucket I have hiding wisely in the ground some where’s near here.
Of course I must not spill the where abouts or the treasure will be yours. Could be it is in my heart that lay the gold for the passage to it would surely make a grown man quiver. Lest he die in the search. Oh and many have in their quest to this heart o gold. But I will soon be off again, to the battle of the snake and the its charmer. As the tale continues on Erin go brach and he will void all the wrongdoers and naysayers entry into the golden castle I have stored.
Yes believers It so be as from the streets of heaven is no fairy tale or old folklore but a true and grand find indeed. To get the key from this old, old, wizard of sorts one must only believe….
TIS THE LUCK OF THE IRISH don’t they see….
MAY JOY AND PEACE COME TO THIS WORLD OF MINE TODAY
Happy St. Patrick’s day to one and all,
In Jesus name,
General n Ma Hope
of the Hobo Univercity
Here comes the snow once again! God is so Great in the undeserving Graces and mercies he gives us all. Think about the hungry right now. All the people in this world that are homeless and yet they know their God is here and will supply their every need. Faith the unseen knowledge he will always take care of his children.
I ramble on n on for what purpose but to glorify and praise our father who is in heaven. How can I justify this glorious god of mine and to share him so freely as to invite you to the dance, too. Love. that is so freely givin yet so many of us rarely give this love back. Oh we love our family and job and give to the charity of our choices. What else is there. Stop and know God’s love for us is endless so why do we stop. I seldom ever have enough money for the month and lost and found daily do I reflect on next month I will do better. Yet faith in Jesus gives me no doubt he is continually seeing after me and my wants and needs. My little cabin in the middle of nowhere’s is the international headquarters of this mission. Look thru the stacks and piles of my papers and ideas and dreams they are coming to life right in front of yours n my eyes. Peace , and the Love of the Christian Nation prayers and the understanding that Jesus no matter how soon he will be here is already here in the comforter he sent in the Holy Spirit. So if God is for us who can be against us? It doesn’t matter. for God gave you and I the power and the spirit of Jesus. Take our weapons of his choice, the two hands put together and close them eyes and reach Jesus in praise and prayer. Whatever the problems in life pray brothers n sisters. He hears our cries and knows our needs before we even ask him. So faithless of a world the Christian faith must stand now and lead the way.
An old song “Battle Hymm of the Republic” my eyes have seen the coming of the Lord Glory Glory hallelujah ! Fear not says the lord Jesus. Why are we scared of the coming of the Lord? because most of the Christian nation is in sin. Yet God is giving us all this one last go around to repent. I repent daily and give all the love I have to whoever needs it. spread the word , Jesus is coming back to claim us. Not the money you have or the big cars and land and whatever as our one mission in this world is to sign up more Christian Soldiers to walk in the faith and listen to what my Jesus is saying. “For God So loved his world that he gave his only Son that who ever believes in him shall not perish but have Everlasting Life.” John 3:16

People, everywhere. six billion pie holes. All of us are looking for a miracle of sorts and it is right in front of us. God’s wonderful universe. if only we believe. Jesus came born in a lowly manger. No crib for his bed. Yet he is the King of our Universe. Look tpo the skies, It is in the air we breathe. No other life in the universe is such as we have it right here in the Earth. Yet, we bicker and argue andfight one another, for what? Love is here, we all want the same thing. Peace on Earth!!! Let it begin with all that read my song today,
December 1st, 2015
would be a perfect day for World Peace to begin. Well , I’m starting it with me. Shake hands and help one another. today is the right time for this peace and war needs to be no more. We have lost so many sons of this world and for no reason. Let no more blood be spilled. No body bags filled with unnecessary deaths due to WAR! My prayers go out to this world today and with your help we can do this.
Shining in God’s Love
TODAY AS I WENT TO DO SOME SHOPPING AND LOOK THROUGH A THRIFT STORE I COMPLETED MY TASKS AND SAT IN THE SHADE OF THE FRONT DOORS. A LADY , SEEMED DISTRESSED WALKING TOWARD THE THRIFT STORE . I HAPHAZRDLY SAID IS EVERYTHING OK MAM? EVIDENTLY, SHE COMES TO THE STORE OCCASIONALLY, TO SHOP. WE STRUCK UP A CONVERSATION. OF COURSE I MENTIONED THE MISSION AND ALL THE TRIMMINGS ONE COULD MUSTER IN FIVE MINUTES ABOUT MY ‘CHURCH WITHOUT WALLS’
I NEEDED TO SPEAK A LITTLE TO ALLOW THE SPIRIT AND JESUS TO ASSIST ME, LEAD ME THRU WITNESSING TO THIS LADY. WHEN SHE HEARD I DID CLOWN WORK SHE WAS EAR TO EAR WITH SMILES AND I DEFINETLY THINK THE SUN CAME OUT BEHIND THAT CLOUD AS OUR CONVERSATION JUST GOT MORE N MORE ON A PERSONAL LEVEL FOR HER. I WON’T PUT HER NAME OUT BUT I MET AN ANGEL TODAY. SHE HAD JUST CAME FROM A CHURCH SHARING HER TESTIMONY IN THERE AND SHE JUST KNEW SHE WAS GONNA MEET UP WITH THE GENERAL THIS DAY.
I MOST LIKELY WILL NEVER SEE HER AGAIN, YET JESUS AND I INSTALLED A LITTLE LIGHT IN HER LIFE THIS DAY. DIDN’T COST ANYTHING TO SMILE AND LIFT THE SPIRITS UP OF A PERSON WHO SHORELY NEEDED SOME ENCOURAGMENT AND UPLIFTING TODAY. AS SHE WALKED AWAY I SAW HER WINGS AND KNEW THEN SHE WAS THE ANGEL GOD SENT TO ME.
PEACE STARTS WITH JUST TWO PEOPLE AND THE LOVE AND KINDNESS EVOLVED IN OUR CONTACT WILL LAST A LIFETIME FOR THIS MAN FOR SURE. IT IS JUST THAT EASY. PEACE THE TANGLED WORLD NEEDS. PEACE WHAT IS IT? CAN WE POSSIBLY HAVE PEACE IN OUR WORLD SOON.?
NO MORE DEATH BY VIOLENCE AND TERRORISTIC MEN AND WOMEN. IT MUST END AND END NOW.
LOVE .THE CHILD.
HE HAS MORE LOVE
THAN ALL OF US GROWNUPS.
WILL IT TAKE AN ARMY OF CHILDREN
MARCHING TO DRAW ALL OF US
TO A PEACEFUL , LOVING WORLD.
MAYBE. AN ANGEL TOUCHED ME TODAY.
WE TRIED ONCE, TO BUILD A TOWER TO HEAVEN. IT WAS CALLED ‘THE TOWER OF BABEL”. AT THE TIME THIS WHOLE WORLD SPOKE PRETTY MUCH THE SAME LANGUAGE AND THE LEADERS CALLED EVERY NATION TO COME AND HELP TO BUILD THE TOWER SO WE CAN MEET AND SEE OUR GOD!!! NEEDLESS TO SAY AFTER SEVERAL ATTEMPTS AND STORIES OF ROCK AND WOODEN STRUCTURE, GOD HAD ENOUGH. HE KNEW THEY WERE GOING ON IN A FRUTILE AND FOOLISH CHORE TO BUILD THIS TOWER , A STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN, MIND YOU!
SO HE STRUCK DOWN AND SPLIT EVERYONES LANGUAGES APART. THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHO UNDERSTOOD ONE ANOTHER ,NO LONGER COULD. THE LANGUAGE BARRIER GOD IMPOSED WAS TREMENDOUS. THE TOWER CEASED TO GROW ANY TALLER AND EVENTUALLY THE GROUPS OF LIKE LANGUAGES WENT THEIR SEPERATE WAYS AND SPREAD THRUOUT THE WORLD.
NOW, JESUS IS LEADING US TO A NEW WORLD AND NEW WAY OF LOVE AND PEACE UPON OUR EARTH. WE EVEN HAVE COMPUTERS THAT TRANSLATE SO OTHER NATIONS CAN AND WILL UNDERSTAND WHEN THE ORDERS START TO ROLL OUT FROM HEAVEN. IMAGINE SOON FAMILIES WILL COME TOGETHER. DISEASES WILL BE CURED. HUNGER AND DEATH WILL ALSO BE ERADICATED. CHILDREN OF THE ETERNAL LIGHT SOON WILL START LIGHTING UP THIS DARKENDED WORLD AND THE DISCIPLES AND JESUS ON HIS WHITE HORSE WILL DESTROY THE DEMONS AND SATAN HIMSELF WILL BE CHAINED AND AT SOME POINT IN THE BEGINNING OF OUR ETERNAL LIVING, WILL BE ESCORTED (*SATAN ) TO THE FIREY FURNACE HE HAS WAITING FOR HIM FOR HIS EVRLASTING FIRE OF HELL!
GOD BLESS EVERYONE WHO READS MY MESSAGE THIS DAY AND TELL OTHERS PEACE IS IMMINENT. WE DON’T WANT TO FIGHT ANYMORE. LOVE IS THE KEY.
