Missionary Prayer Letter, June 2007

"He who testifies to these things says, Yes, I am coming soon" Rev. 22:20

OUR FAMILY
  • This month classes ended for our daughters. We will go on vacation to the beach (our favorite place), to rest and enjoy our family.
  • My father Joaquin is very sick. He had a pacemaker implanted seven years ago. This month he was with us in Quito for several medical tests. He is 90 years old, and he has arterial hypertension and cardiac insufficiency and is very critical. Please pray for him.
  • Joselito is looking for a part time job –part time- because our support is very low, and the financial horizon does not look good for us. We have a new member in our family, my niece Michelle who is an orphan. Her father is not responsible, so we have taken her in. Please pray for this situation.
OUR MINISTRY
  • Joselito preached in our home Church (UBC) about the being a biblical father (The Model of Joseph, father of Jesus). The sermon powerpoint is available (in spanish). under the conference heading below my profile picture
  • Anita taught a few conferences about Christian sexuality at our home church and Candelaria Baptist Church. She enjoy this ministry, because it is her specialty.
  • Joselito went to Cuzco-Perú with a special group from our church Louisville KY-USA, Ninth and O Baptist Church. The team was under leadership of my friend and partner Dr. David Sills. It was a nice experience for me to visit this Andean country, and to serve to my Lord in cross-cultural missions in another country and to grow and fellowship with my brothers from USA. Our group was nineteen people. We worked in evangelism, medical clinics and discipleship in Ancahuasi (an indigenous community). There is a little baptist church that is very poor and has many needs. We also visited Macchu Picchu. I preached the gospel of our Lord Jesus to 600 students at the elementary school. It was my first trip to Peru. I hope to continue serving there and in others countries in LA.
MISCELLANEOUS
  • We began a special program in Quito for advanced students in the Ecuadorian Baptist Theological Seminary. Anita and I are teaching on the Bachelor level of this program.
  • Joselito wrote his new book (160 pages), about the Baptist Theology. He needs money to printing 1000 copies (approximately $2000 total)
  • Joselito & Anita attended a special conference for leaders and pastors about having a healthy marriage. We are going to teach eight months of special conferences on Christian family for Candelaria Baptist Church, our Home Church (UBC), and Puerto Lopez Baptist Church. The materials are provided by the International Bible Society.
OUR PRAYER REQUESTS
  • For the scholarship for Anita to pursue her Masters in Christian Counseling ($1500).
  • Continue praying for our economic support please, it is extremely critical
  • For the Joselito's visa. He needs to go to the USA in August (SBPH). His appointment with the embassy in Quito is on July 16.
With love in Christ: Joselito & Anita Orellana. (Galatians 2:20).
