Some time ago I read a book that moved me very deeply and left me with a great deal to think about. The book was A Song for Nagasaki by Father Paul Glynn.
In this book, beautifully written, the reader is lead through the story of conversion, strength and authenticity demonstrated in the life of Takashi Nagai. One quote from Takashi comes back often to me in my work here at Joseph's House - "Assistance is authentic...when it helps restore a person's dignity."
In this time of great need in the world, may we strive to honor, and restore when needed, each others dignity - which, is a gift from God Himself!
Goal #1 of our Mission here at Joseph's House - to serve the entire person, not just the moments need.
Please pray for our visitors, their needs, their desires and their struggles.

After leaving my full-time job to tend to family needs, the Lord placed me here at Joseph's House, a surprise and a joy.
