We are Ecuadorians and grew up in Christian homes all our lives. God called us to the ministry at an early age and we have served Him through the years. Joselito began to pastor churches at the age of 17. Also, we have served as professors in the Ecuadorian Baptist Theological Seminary since 1991 until today. Joselito has been the leader of the Ecuadorian Baptist Convention in the area of Theological Education for ten consecutive years and Rector of this Seminary for the last seven years. He has also served as Chaplain at the Voice of the Andes Christian Hospital of HCJB World Radio (WRMF) for 12 years, until May 2003.
Beginning 2003 we stepped out in faith to become missionaries by faith with Palm Missionary Ministries Inc. Now we serve full time in theological education and a pastoral training ministry at both formal and informal training settings in our country. Joselito is currently the senior theology teacher of the Ecuadorian Baptist Theological Seminary, an itinerant preacher, co pastor at University Baptist Church from Quito, and member of the Board of Directors of Palm Missionary Ministries in Ecuador. Also he is writer for the Spanish Baptist Publishing House, from El Paso TX-USA., and currently he is cooperating like a legal representative to Ecuador of the Reaching & Teaching Intl Ministries.
Our basic areas of missionary ministry are: Theological Education, Literature, Pastoral Training, Pastoral Ministries, Leadership Development, Preaching, Pastoral Counseling & Christian therapy, Women’s Prison chaplain, Literature, Educative administration, and Christian Education for Children.
Anita and I have been married for nineteen years (February 25/95) and we have three biological daughters: Genesis (March 21/98), Galilee (September 28/00), and Bethlehem (September 30/04). So we have another adoptive daughter, her name is Michelle (October 27/93). Really she is my niece, but she is living with us because my sister Lourdes died with uterine cancer eight years ago.
Our basic and global vision in the grace and blessing of the Lord is:
We come to you through this short letter, respectfully, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We humbly pray that you would consider cooperation in this ministry. Would you prayerfully consider financially supporting our ministry and family? Right now we have only raised 50% of our required economic support.
Please help us to show the Kingdom of the Lord from the Middle of the World, throughout Latin America and the world. Thank you very much for praying for us and supporting us in this pilgrimage of service for which we are burdened every day. Really we need your help, praying and giving for us, because we are suffering many basic needs.
