In God’s Company – Thomas Cook

Born at a time when most people didn’t travel much, God gave Thomas Cook a vision that changed the world. Meet the ‘Travel Pioneer,’ whose efforts paved the way for the bustling tourism industry of today.

Journey with Cook as he travels through financial hardship and personal struggle – to building a travel entertainment empire worth billions. Born to a poor family, working by age ten, apprenticed to an alcoholic wood-turner at 12, employed as a printer and later an itinerant preacher, financial concerns plague Cook for decades.

Then a 15-mile walk to a temperance meeting births the idea of harnessing the power of the railways to create affordable outings – and wholesome recreation – for the masses! While the first rail excursion meets with great success, his trek continues with mountainous challenges.

In this movie, you’ll be encouraged to celebrate small beginnings and pursue God-given visions!
