Missionary Prayer Letter- March 2007

OUR FAMILY

Genesis celebrates her 9th birthday on March 21. We are thinking of putting our daughters in a Christian School (possibly Alliance Academy), but it is very expensive. There is a chance they may get scholarships if Anita can teach and help reduce the cost. Pray for this to work out quickly; the current school is not Christian and we have many problems with their secular activities and worldly parties.

OUR MINISTRY
  • Anita went to Puerto Lopez to help lead and teach the Vacation School. Eighty children attended and many made decisions to follow Christ.
  • We received a visit from our brother and partner Russell Leatherman (and an associate) from http://www.nbri.net/. It was a nice experience to increase our fellowship this ministry. We visited Candelaria Baptist Church, HCJB World Radio, the School of Ministry and our home church (University Baptist Church).
  • Anita went to Santo Domingo, with the ladies of Candelaria Baptist Church on a ladies retreat and shared a special conference for them.
  • Joselito spoke at a special conference for the young Baptist people in Pichincha Association about the interpretation of the Bible.
  • Joselito preached in Candelaria and also shared the Bible study. We received many Survey of the Bible books to teach the members in Candelaria over the next three months.
  • Joselito went to the countryside for three days to visit three Baptist churches in the mountains (Toachi, Dos Rios & Alluriquín) He preached every day, sharing in a few family conferences, and encouraging the brothers and pastors there. While there , they were able to celebrate baptisms and a communion service.
  • We had our intensive week of studies with the pastoral training program in Quito. Joselito was teaching Church Ministry (Administration & Education). The next session will be in May. Anita is helping with the logistical aspects and secretarial duties.
MISCELLANEOUS
Anita began her Master's program in Pastoral Counseling through Vision International University (VIU). She is very excited about that. Pray for her, please! I will need to help with the care of our daughters.

OUR PRAYER REQUESTS

  • Please don't forget to pray for our economic support; Right now it is critically low.
  • We need a laptop & in-focus projector.
  • We need scholarships for our pastoral students of the countryside. They are very poor and have very few resources.

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