Joyful Journeys India ~ COVID-19 Relief Fund

In the hopes of offering much needed support to our brothers and sisters in Madhavapatnam  during the Coronavirus Pandemic, we have established Joyful Journeys India ~ COVID-19 Relief Fund (JJI~CRF) as a means to collect financial aid to help provide basic necessities to the people in this village.  Rice, soap, and face masks are among the items being handed out.

As with all other monetary contributions to Joyful Journeys Inc., 100% of your donation will go directly to the designated cause.  Please consider joining us in our efforts to help  underprivileged individuals and families in this community.

Checks designated to JJI~CRF can be mailed to Joyful Journeys Inc., 501 Walnut Street, West Bend WI 53095 or donate securely online through this website.



India Travelers – Building Relationships in 2020

We are incredibly excited to have a dedicated group of travelers venture to India in January 2020; this will be the 7th trip over since our ministry started about 15 years ago!  As in the past, these individuals have a passion for our mission and go with the intent of continuing to build the relationships that were started back in 2005.  They also will have the opportunity to see and experience the day to day happenings within the JJ Hostel, Marshall School, Landowgals Fashion Technology & Computer Training Institute, as well as the other ministries supported and operated by Joyful Journeys.  We look forward to hearing their stories, seeing their photos, and growing in service with them! For a peek into their travels, you can check out Board Member, Jenny Landowski’s blog by clicking the following link… http://landowsindiaadventure.blogspot.com/


April Awareness

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.–Mahatma Gandhi

Join our efforts this month, as we invite you to be a part of our sponsorship program. Twenty dollars a month pledge could win you a $500 VISA Gift Card.

April Awareness

Thank you to all who helped bring awareness to our India Ministry!  Due to your efforts we were able to sponsor 25 additional students.  7 new sponsors came from our Immanuel Church Family, 12 new sponsors were from outside our our congregation, and 6 were current sponsors who chose to sponsor another child.

The WINNER of our drawing — Eric  & Terry Christie!  They graciously gifted the $500 Visa card back to the India Ministry!  Blessings to them!

Together we are making a positive change in the world.
