Martina Ojeda thanks Saint Joseph for the miracle that her husband Eulalio came back home to celebrate the Christmas with her and their children. He worked whole year and they didn’t see him all that time and missed him so much.

The police came to the Elsa Camargo’s house because her neighbors were complaining that she kept many cats and it stank a lot. She thanks Saint Joseph for they didn’t take all of her cats away because, otherwise, she would have died of a broken heart.
