Missionary Prayer Letter- October 2008

OUR FAMILY

We celebrated Bethlehem's birthday at her school with her classmates. She was very excited. Pray for Michelle because she started her dental treatment that will last for the next two years. It is very expensive and painful. Michelle celebrated her fifteenth birthday on October 27. We are going to have a special service for her on December 6 because November will be so busy for us.

OUR MINISTRY
  • Anita has begun going to the women's prison with a group of female missionaries every Wednesday. She teaches Bible studies and counsels the inmates.
  • Joselito preached at New Life Baptist Church and Anita taught children's Sunday School. We were also there for the vote on the national constitution.
  • Joselito also preached in the celebratory service for the anniversary of Candelaria Baptist church. It was very nice experience that ended with a special festival of indigenous food.
  • We have continued teaching the Introduction to Bible course at Candelaria every Wednesday. We also led a special marriage conference for them.
  • We also began the regularly scheduled classes at the Ecuadorian Baptist Theological Seminary in Quito. Joselito taught a few special conferences on God's call and the importance of theological education.
  • Joselito preached at "Love Built Baptist Church". This is part of our goal to visit every Baptist church in Quito sometime in the next year to encourage them.
  • Joselito was invited to attend a Pastoral Training School for two days in Quito. It was a time of spiritual refreshment for him. This program is supported by Woodstock Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia and Northside Baptist Church in North Carolina.
MISCELLANEOUS
  • Joselito taught an intensive course on missiology at Vision International University.
  • Our marriage mentors Jim & Hilda Miller came for a visit. It was wonderful to see again them because they were our teachers at the Ecuadorian Baptist Theological Seminary in Quito and they also served as mentors when we were preparing to get married.
  • We had special retreat for two days for strategic planning for Candelaria Baptist Church, in La Merced Baptist Camp.
  • We participated in the ordination of two pastors at Shekinah Baptist Church in south Quito.We received training from the Ecuadorian Bible League to use special recorders to share the Bible with people who cannot read and write.
OUR PRAYER REQUESTS & NEEDS
  • Pray for Anita and her final coursework for her Master's degree.
  • Continue praying for the increase our monthly budget, please.
With love in Christ, Joselito & Anita Orellana (Galatians 2:20)
