2015 TAHOE LTZ CAR RAFFLE TO BENEFIT JOSEPH’S HOUSE
ANOTHER JOSEPH’S HOUSE MIRACLE!!!
OUR HEARTS ARE OVERWHELMED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE BYRNES FAMILY, OF BYRNES CHEM DRY, SYRACUSE, NEW YORK HAS OPTED TO DONATE THE WINNING TICKET BACK TO JOSEPH’S HOUSE TO BE USED FOR OUR MINISTRY!
When 12 year old Erin Byrnes had raised $1000 for Joseph’s House by recycling bottles and cans collected in her neighborhood for the past year, she asked her parents to please buy $200 worth of raffle tickets, but if they won, she would like them to donate the winning ticket back.
When the winning ticket was drawn by Father Richard Prior, the Byrnes name and phone number appeared and the crowd’s enthusiasm was palpable, realizing this was the family of Erin.
When they came forward, Erin’s beautiful parents Bill and Jeanie Byrnes said that it was Erin’s decision to do with the ticket what she wished, since she raised the funds. Erin said she wanted her family to win in order to give it back to Joseph’s House, and that they did!
May God abundantly bless this family and their selflessness!!
Note: As the joy of our miracle is spreading, so many of you would like to help Erin with her fundraising effort for Joseph’s House. If your gift is to help Erin, please note that on the check or in the comments section online.

Hello Dear Friends of Joseph’s House!
There have been so many miracles in the short history of Joseph’s House, we have been asked by many to share them. You may consider this a type of update on our progress and learn how we are inspired each day to do the work of Our Lord has set before us. He hears our prayers dear friends, because we give our everything to Him each day. If you begin giving your whole being to God each day as you set your feet on the floor, I can promise you, your life will change dramatically. The first thing I noticed was I did an awful lot of cursing at other drivers! That bad habit disappeared rather quickly, as I knew that wasn’t something I wanted to give to God! I challenge you to try this if you never have. Only God knows what he has in store for you!
As I write this to you, we are home to six moms, two toddlers, two infants and are expecting two more precious bundles in the spring. We will also be welcoming our seventh resident next week. I know she will be greeted by our precocious 3 year old
(who I will call Lizzy), with an outstretched hand and “Welcome to Lizzy’s House!”
You see even our very youngest residents consider Joseph’s House, THEIR house!
What more could we possibly ask for!
We are blessed each day by these young women and their children as they work hard to change their lives. Our lives are joy-filled being able to witness their gratitude for our ministry. We thank you for your prayers and support and ask you to consider helping us with our up-coming fund-raising events by selling raffle tickets at the mall or serving on one of our other committees. Please visit jhfw.org for more opportunities to serve.
As promised, a miracle story appears below.
I will tell you a miracle story that took place this week. Part of the house lost heat on Tuesday. On Wednesday a friend arrived to fix it but was in need of parts. I was in the boiler room with him and he explained what was needed. He let us know later he would have to order the part and did not have the man power to fix it on Thursday. At this point the entire house was very cold and we were concerned about pipes freezing because of the cold nights. Thankfully, somehow the two areas that stayed warm were the nurseries and the dorms. On Thursday our House Manager contacted another individual who also helps with boiler maintenance and after taking the pump apart realized he needed a different part to fix it. He said he turned around to find a box on the floor and in it was exactly the part he needed! I was all over that boiler room on Wednesday and there wasn’t a box on the floor near the boiler! I did mention to St. Joseph in my mind, we couldn’t go much longer without heat. I think someone took that as a prayer! Thank you St. Joseph!!! Thank you, Thank you!
Please believe in miracles my friends, they happen everyday, we only need the eyes to see. How do we get those eyes? By giving our whole day, everyday to Jesus Christ Our Lord and Savior!
God Bless You Always,
