Missionary Prayer Letter- February 2006

“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me”
Our Family
Anita and I celebrated our 11th Wedding Anniversary. We give thanks to our Lord Jesus for this sweet gift. We want to be strong and continue being faithful with our ministry commitment.
Bethlehem was a little sick again. We don't know what happens with her, but every month she has a health problem. Her doctor told us that it was possibly an attack of rotavirus.
Don't forget to visit us at our own website- http://joselitoorellana.blogspot.com Thanks so much again to our brother and partner Rodney Bond, from Global Outreach, for his kind hospitality with our former website. It was a nice experience. We sincerely appreciate your help Rod. May God bless you richly!
We want to give many thanks to our brother, Timmy Brister; he was the designer of this new website for us. God job, Tim- we appreciate your help so much. Congratulations on a great job and thanks again! Timmy is a student of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY and his website is: http://provocationsandpantings.blogspot.com
Churches & University Baptist Church (our home church)
Starting this month, Anita is teaching the Teenager's Class in our Sunday School. She presented a special show with mime about Valentine's Day. It was cool to see our kids as actors.
Joselito preached in UBC about Christian commitment to the Holy Scriptures (Ezra 7:10). We need to recover as a church the missionary vision and so reach Quito and Ecuador for Christ.
We had an intensive week of our pastoral training program at UBC for pastors that are working in the countryside. Joselito teaches New Testament. The next encounter will be in April.
Ecuadorian Baptist Theological Seminary & Ecuadorian Baptist Convention
As Theological Director of the Ecuadorian Baptist Convention, we are waiting for the local Baptist Association to outline the new project in Quito. They are working to develop a vision for our seminary here.
In Guayaquil, they will begin the new semester in April. We are expecting 80 students.
Palm Missionary Ministries-Ecuador
We had to change our medical insurance provider because they unilitaterally decided to end our contract. I do not understand clearly the reasons, but we have provisional coverage now until August 2006. Pray for permanent insurance coverage arrangements.
My nephew, Solomon Patrick (23 years old), had a car accident. He was hospitalized for emergency surgery in Vozandes Hospital. He was in surgery for 5 hours because his face was 50% destroyed. He stayed in the hospital for ten days. He is recovering now and w are hoping that his vision (right eye) will be okay in the future. He is a believer in Christ, but needs to move closer to the Lord Jesus and His Holy Word.
Also, please don't forget to visit this website if you want to see beautiful pictures of our last group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/ecuador2006
Joselito went to Manta-Manabi province (Ecuadorian coast) to teach an intensive course about Contextual Hermeneutics for the Latin American Christian University.
Prayer Requests
  • For our daughters, for their physical and spiritual health, and their studies
  • Please continue praying for my Luke's Commentary. I'm very excited but geting nervous about it now.
  • For our next missionary group from the USA in April (evangelization, pastoral training, discipleship). We will probably be in the town of Pifo, as our church has a high school there and we want to open a new mission.
“The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me”
Thank you so much, for your prayers and support for us.
God bless you All.

With love in Christ, Joselito & Anita Orellana
(Galatians 2:20)
