As most of us sprint to the Christmas finish line, it’s so easy to forget people in need. This year, WorkMatters has been blessed to help the “poor and the sick” of the marketplace through The Joseph Project. Hundreds of business men and women have lost their jobs this year and this Christmas will look different for many of them. Will you please pray for them?
However, many men and women have now found new jobs! We hope that The Joseph Project has been able in some small way to accomplish our vision of “altering the journey of business people between jobs.”
Please read these blessings below posted on our Linked In website. May you be blessed this Christmas Eve!
I was inspired and encouraged today – and thought I would share with the group. While shopping with Kennedy today, we were stopped by a familiar face – and wished a Merry Christmas. With a few clues, he revealed that we had met at an early Joseph Project meeting – but he hadn’t been able to make it lately because he had landed job and was working a lot. He shared how impactful the Joseph Project had been for him – and it was so special for me to have Kennedy (7 yr old) see a man touched by God, and going out of his way to reconnect and wish us a Merry Christmas. Gary – thank you! Your light shined bright today! Steve Blair, Director, National Accounts at Ghirardelli Chocolate
Thanks for sharing this story. I am also a Joseph Project alum and moved to Springfield, MO for my new job. I miss getting to intermingle with the many that still use JP as a career search and soul lifting program! Merry Christmas to all!

Our company was fortunate to have hired a Joseph Project alumni very recently that had been searching for work for over a year. What a blessing to see her in her new job, that probably wouldn’t have happened without meeting her at a Joseph Project meeting.
