The ministry of World Missionary Evangelism, Inc. began with a challenge to put
Christian faith in action in order to care for a handful of orphan children in India.
Already a successful businessman and Christian leader, Dr. John Douglas, Sr. felt he still
needed to do more to reach lost souls for Christ. Responding to that call, he sold all he had
and entered full-time ministry. After accepting an invitation to minister in India, Dr. Douglas met
a Hindu man at a Gospel meeting who asked Dr. Douglas if he really believed what he
preached. When John Douglas said yes, the Hindu man left 7 orphaned children with the
visiting American minister. Dr. Douglas accepted the challenge as a part of his calling from God
and built a children’s home for orphans.
God honored Dr. Douglas’ commitment to serve by transforming a ministry starting with 7
orphans into an outreach to suffering children and people in many countries. John Douglas
gave the remainder of his life to meeting the spiritual and physical needs of impoverished,
hurting people. His vision included a mighty army of native missionaries working in their own
lands to fulfill the Great Commission. And that is how World Missionary Evangelism came into
being nearly 60 years ago.
After nearly 60 years of continuous ministry, WME continues its mission to fulfill the
Great Commission and live our faith by demonstrating the love of Jesus Christ to
those suffering from great need in body and soul.
As Christian believers, we are called to be living testimonies of the saving and healing power of
Jesus Christ to all nations and peoples. It is our deepest desire to serve our Lord and be
counted among the faithful servants who have cared for “the least of these” in His name.
“Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, ‘Come, ye blessed
of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation
of the world;
For I was hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave
me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me:
I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.’
Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when saw we thee an
hungred, and fed thee? Or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we
thee a stranger, and took thee in? Or naked, and clothed thee? Or when
saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?’
And the King shall answer and say unto them, ‘Verily I say unto you,
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,
ye have done it unto me.’” - Matthew 25:34-40
