Missionary Prayer Letter- January 2008

  • Anita and Bethlehem went to see her mother and our Baptist church in Puerto Lopez (Manabi province). She had a nice time with her family and Bethlehem enjoyed the beach…she was VERY excited to play on the beach! My daughters are growing marvelously under the grace of the Lord.

  • Our whole family spent the month in Yaruqui (30 miles from Quito). We attended their evangelical church every Sunday, but mainly went to visit a very good friend, Walter Chavez, who is dying of cancer. He is very sick and considered a terminal patient at this point. He is an engineer, was president of the Ecuadorian Baptist Convention, and president of our home church in Quito for many years. He is a wonderful Christian. It was a beautiful experience for us to enjoy fellowship, sing praises to the Lord, study the Bible together, tell stories, and share our lives.
  • Joselito preached one Sunday in Yaruqui and also offered a special marriage conference while we were visiting. The topic of the conference was The Meaning of Love.
  • Joselito preached in Candelaria Baptist Church the final Sunday of the month. We continue leading the study on the Christian Family each Wednesday.
  • Joselito is writing two books this year: The Christian Family, A Pastoral Perspective; and the other, The Principal Problems of Ministry in Latin America.
  • Joselito is now the president of the Palm Ministry in Ecuador . He goes to the mission office every Tuesday except when he is helping with groups from USA, or has a family priority.
  • Also we are taking care of cases of pastoral counseling in Candelaria and in our home church, especially family counseling.
  • Joselito continues teaching in the education program for the Ecuadorian Baptist Theological Seminary. The graduation ceremony will be in March.
  • Pray for Anita and her final project for graduation. She is working very hard.
  • Pray for Joselito's new books he is working on in 2008
  • Pray for the administration of Palm Ministry in Ecuador
With love in Christ: Joselito & Anita Orellana. (Galatians 2:20).
