World Ministries International is committed to the expansion of the kingdom of God. In addition to proclaiming the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ and giving warning to church leadership, the church, and the nations, we strive to also bring relief aid, love and help to those in need.
The Benevolence Ministry at WMI has provided food, clothes, money, medical supplies, and other support in many communities around the world.
The department head of the Benevolence Ministry is Dr. Michael Hyodo, a dentist residing with his family in Bellevue, Washington. WMI has built four dental clinics and is currently building two more in Kingston and Spanish Town, Jamaica.
The four clinics are located in Romania, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, and Russia.
When WMI goes into other countries, there are many relationships that are formed as the Word of God goes forth.
When the Lord leads us, we invest in long-term support such as giving relief aid to the poor, widows, orphans, holding crusade meetings and building medical and dental clinics.
Our burden for the poor and lost is from James 1:27; “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this: to visit the fatherless and the widows in their affliction and to keep himself unspotted from the world.”
After reliable contacts are developed and we are confident of long-term local support, we begin the process of acquiring donated dental equipment, food and clothing. Local groups help us to load a container that is shipped to the country such as this container to Perm, Russia.
In March 2003, WMI went to Jamaica for the third time. The team met with the Prime Minister, the Honorable P.J. Patterson, where God gave Prophet Hansen a Word for the nation of Jamaica (from left to right: Mara DaCosta, Dr. Mike, Dr. Audre DaCosta, the Honorable P.J. Patterson, Prophet Hansen, and Rev. E.J. Buckardt)
We also met with the Governor General, his Excellency, Sir Howard Cooke. Prophet Hansen gave both leaders exhortation that a nation's hope isn't in a one world government, but only in Jesus Christ. In the end, both men agreed that the nation needed to repent from sin.
Contacts were made with Food for the Poor to ship our dental equipment securely and safely through customs and insure proper delivery to our dental clinics.
The sites reside at Lighthouse Assembly Church in Spanish town
and at Faith Cathedral Deliverance Centre in Kingston.
Dr. Audre DaCosta is our missionary dentist who will be moving to Jamaica this year and will operate both dental clinics. We are pleased to sow into this community, which has much poverty and has three times the homicide rate of New York city.

It is an honor and privilege to serve the Lord in building His kingdom. Through His Spirit we have been led to touch the nations
according to Matthew 28:19, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.”
Many have turned to the Lord Jesus Christ because of this ministry.
WMI also serves the needs of communities in the United States of America. We are in the process of converting this mobile van to a dental clinic and soup kitchen.
WMI donated a refrigerator to a Romania Hospital. The hospital had no refrigerator to store their medicines etc.

We are waiting to acquire the remainder of the dental equipment and finances to accomplish all that God has called us to do in Jamaica.
