The time has finally come to hold the national crusade meetings of repentance in Jamaica! This news comes on the heels of two visits to Jamaica this year in February and May. The crusade meetings will occur between September 16th and 26th, 2005, and because of the immediacy and importance of these events, we ask that you support us in prayer and finances to reach this nation for God.
Pictured above is the Prime Minister of Jamaica, Mr. P. J. Patterson with Apostle Hansen. Below is the Governor General of Jamaica, Sir Howard Cooke. Both of these leaders have given their blessing for the national crusade meetings.
From February 10th – 21st World Ministries International brought both a ministry team and a medical-dental team to minister to the people of Jamaica.
The first meeting on Friday, February 11th was a television interview in Montego Bay with Bishop V.T. Williams (pictured above), who is over the Jamaica Evangelistic Association. Later that day, we met with Reverend Conrad H. Pitkin, of the Faith Temple Assembly of God.
Reverend Pitkin is on the Executive Council
of the Assemblies of God Church in Jamaica.
The morning of Sunday, February 13th, Apostle Hansen preached at the New Life Assemblies Church in Kingston. Reverend Douglas Robb (pictured below) was so touched by the service that he invited the team to come back on February 16th in order for Apostle Hansen to anoint his 41 ministry leaders.

Assemblies Church in Kingston.
Right after service, the WMI team drove
back to Montego Bay for a tent meeting.
Many people came up for salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ at the tent meeting. Afterward, every person who came up for prayer was healed. Pictured below is a deaf man who received a miracle and can now hear..
Below is a lady who sat on the front row and could not see Apostle Hansen preaching. She cried as she testified that she could see clearly to the back of the tent after God healed her.
Monday through Friday, the WMI Benevolence Ministry Dental team worked in a medical-dental clinic that was built by World Ministries International in Kingston. Pictured below are Dr. Michael Hyodo and Sam King treating a patient.
On Wednesday, February 16th, Apostle Jonathan Hansen anointed the 41 ministry leaders from the New Life Assemblies Church where they fell under the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
Thursday, Apostle Hansen met with the Executive Council from the Jamaica Assemblies of God (pictured below). Adjacent to him is the president of the Executive Council, Reverend Beron Kinkaid.
The council heartily agreed to support the crusade meetings of repentance in Jamaica. Later that day, the team went to the City of Refuge Orphanage in Content Gap. It was truly a blessing to spend time with the children and give them stuffed animals and toys as well as clothing and other supplies.
On Friday, February 18th the WMI team visited the site in the Greater Portmore area where our second dental clinic is going to be built in cooperation with the Ministry of Health and with Bishop C. Everton Thomas (pictured below).
On Sunday, February 20th, Apostle Jonathan Hansen preached
a powerful message at the Lighthouse of Faith church.
The mission trip to Jamaica in May was focused on meeting with church leadership to finalize plans for national crusade meetings of repentance. The Holy Spirit was pressing in on the urgency for this to occur, and provided what was needed in terms of cooperation and unity of the leaders. On Saturday, May 21st, leaders from the minister’s fraternal organization of churches in Montego Bay (below) met with Apostle Hansen to discuss the crusade meetings.
The leadership group, including the President, Reverend Carriel Graham (second from the left), heartily backed and committed their complete support for the national crusade meetings. They recognized the seriousness of the condition of sin in their nation, as violence has escalated to the boiling point in Jamaica.
The message of repentance was accepted and preparations began. On Sunday, May 22nd, Apostle Hansen preached twice, speaking first at The Meeting Place Church, a part of Trumpet Call Ministries (below) with Pastor Mary Wildish, and then being rushed over to the Lighthouse of Faith church with Pastor Phillip Gordon (below).
The church services were powerful as many people were saved,
healed and delivered when the anointing of the Holy Spirit took over.
During the course of the trip, God revealed divine strategy and wisdom, including going to the mass media as a part of reaching the nation of Jamaica. He also gave direction to go to three major areas throughout Jamaica: Kingston, Montego Bay, and Mandeville. The next two days were packed with meeting with national television stations, radio stations, and newspapers, preparing to release the message that God has given to Apostle Hansen for the nation of Jamaica. These meetings included the largest television stations, TVJ, CVM, and LOVE TV as well as radio stations RJR Radio, Hot 102, and LOVE Radio, as well as the national Gleaner newspaper.
On Wednesday, May 25th, Apostle Hansen met with the minister’s fraternal group of churches from Mandeville. This group included President Reverend Donald Dacres (pictured below center).
The leaders of the churches in Mandeville committed to fully supporting Apostle Hansen and the national crusade meeting of repentance. With support of two out of three major areas, we prepared the next day to meet with the largest umbrella group of churches in the nation: the Jamaica Full-Gospel Churches. Pictured below is this group, including President Bishop Delford Davis (on Apostle Hansen’s left).
As we met with this third group of leaders, once again, all were in complete support of the national crusade meetings. The fire of God inspired this group as Bishop Davis stood up and exhorted the leaders to not only rally behind the crusade in Kingston, but also to have a crusade in Spanish Town and Portmore as well. We met these key leaders during the three different minister’s fraternal meetings, representing potentially thousands of pastors and churches.
The dates are now set to have national crusade meetings of repentance for five major cities in Jamaica the week of September 16th –26th. Please pray for our Apostle Hansen and the WMI team, and help us to reach this nation for God. Now is the time to step out in faith and give us your very best financial support toward these meetings. This is the culmination of four years of work during which we have visited Jamaica eight times. Two dental clinics have been built there, and hundreds of people have received free dental treatment amounting to a value of over $250,000 US dollars. Many churches, orphanages, hospitals, and people of the communities have been helped through our benevolence ministry.
The commission to Jamaica to which the Lord has called Apostle Jonathan Hansen is literally being fulfilled this September. Because of the violence and desperation of the people, Jamaica is embracing the apostle/prophet to come give the warning message.
Ezekiel 33:1-5 “Again the Word of the LORD came unto me, saying, son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, when I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman: If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.”
We need your help to sound the alarm to Jamaica.
The crusade meetings, newspapers, television, and radio costs will be many thousands of dollars. We need you to partner with us to touch this nation!
Call us today at (360) 629-5248 to find out how you can help. Make an investment into the kingdom of God where you can truly make a difference! May God bless you and shine His countenance upon you and give you peace. Shalom!
Mission Trip to Jamaica
Based in Stanwood, WA, World Ministries International (WMI) has been to Jamaica eight times in the last four years. WMI has worked with orphanages, met with political and church leadership, churches and society at large. Last year, WMI built a dental clinic in Kingston, Jamaica.
This September, WMI team members will return to Jamaica where we will offer free dental treatment to patients from the community, minister to orphans with clothing, supplies and love, and reach out to the people of Jamaica with nation-wide crusade meetings in the largest cities in the country. WMI has a responsibility to pay for time on national television, national radio and the nation’s newspapers as well as the expenses of Dr. Hansen and his delegation.
The cost of this trip for each team member is $1,500.00. Your tax deductible donation today will help support members of the team in this valuable work that we are doing for the people of Jamaica. This trip to Jamaica will be the culmination of four years of hard work and untold hundreds of thousands of dollars in travel expenses, medical/dental equipment, and so much more. The Lord has commissioned us to go to all the nations, not just to make disciples, but also to sound the alarm and turn the nations back to Jesus when the people go astray. Now, the doors are finally open wide and we will reach the entire nation with the message of repentance and the return to Jesus Christ.
Please consider helping us cover the costs for this crusade. Cut off this portion of the newsletter or photocopy it, fill out the donation information today and send it to our address listed above in the enclosed envelope. Thank you for your faithfulness and support!
