'It captivates you, stimulates your imagination, and pierces your heart with a story that repeats itself daily around the world. It is a story of hope.' – Pastor Tim Stevenson from Horizon Community Galt, California

'Journey to Jamaa is an experience that provides the opportunity for your heart to be broken by what breaks God's heart.' Pastor Mark Borgetti from Our Saviour's Lutheran Naperville, Illinois 

Join the Journey of Jamaa

When I first heard about Journey to Jamaa I was desperate to give it a watch, as big fan of child sponsorship and the effect that it has on a child's life I was keen to see how World Vision were going to present such a story.

First we are introduced to the two children of the story Derick (Benjamin Abemigisha), the older brother and head of the family and his little sister Margaret (Rachel Nduhukire). Caught up in their desperate circumstances they are forced to go on a journey to find their remaining relatives after the death of their mother.

Michael Landon Jr. directed the film and it is excellently shot, filmed on location in Uganda everything is made ever more poignant and atmospheric. The film is extremely high quality and has been created to be shown in churches and house groups to spread the word about not just World Vision but the wider picture of poverty and the opportunity that we have to use the resources God has given us to make a very real difference.

At times it is difficult to watch due to the nature of the subject but you will feel yourself drawn alongside Derick and Margaret as they take this journey of a lifetime, encountering a whole variety of people along the way. The way in which World Vision have presented the core of what they do through sponsorship and letter-writing has been done sensitively and as this is based on a true story powerfully reflects the impact sponsorship has. 
Though the film is not very long at just 42 minutes it makes a huge impact in that time and it would be impossible for you not to be moved, so make sure you have some tissues at the ready!
