Missionary Prayer Letter- November 2007

OUR FAMILY

We are growing in the grace of our Lord Jesus. We are enjoying His great blessings on our lives. We know that suffering and needs are a special component in the Christian life, but always He completes His work.

OUR MINISTRY

  • We had the final session of our School of Ministry for 2007. Joselito taught the course, Survey of Church History, over five days with eight hours of instruction each day.
  • Anita also helped by coordinating the logistics for the course.
  • We finished with a Christmas party with games, songs, gifts, and a delicious special dinner. Two students completed the program this month.

MISCELLANEOUS

  • We had our annual board meeting of the Board for our mission in Quito. Our president, Art Patray who is based in Miami, was present and Joselito was named president of Palm Ministry in Ecuador.
  • Joselito went to El Carmen (Manabí province) to visit the Baptist Church and to give a special gift to an old brother who previously worked with Sammy Simpson, a former missionary. While on the trip, he visited the Baptist Church in Alluriquín, and shared a special family conference. Joselito was pastor at this church for eleven years when he was very young, from 1982 until 1993.
  • Joselito had a strategic planning meeting with the Ecuadorian Baptist Youth Board.

OUR PRAYER REQUESTS & NEEDS

  • Pray for Anita and her studies. She is very tired and stressed as she works to complete her final project.
  • Thanksgiving for the provision of our Lord Jesus, but please continue to pray for our monthly budget needs .
  • We have a significant debt for which we need prayer. We bought a truck for our ministry and need to pay $9000. The interest is very expensive in our country, 17% each month, so this is a signficant need. Please pray for this need and for provision from our Lord Jesus.

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