Missionary Prayer Letter- March 2008

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

  • This month Genesis had her tenth birthday. With the exception of Genesis, all our daughters - were very sick with the flu. Anita was very sick as well, but she has recovered quickly. Then Joselito was admitted to the International New Clinic in Quito with Pneumonia. He was very sick for three weeks and was hospitalized for treatment in the Vozandes Hospital. He has been very weak from the antibiotics.
  • The weather in Quito is very cold, for the first time we had temperature of 5ºC- this is very crazy!
  • This month was irregular because of Joselito's illness, but we continue serving to our Lord Jesus.
  • Anita continued teaching at Candelaria Baptist Church every Wednesday on the subject of the Christian Family.
  • We celebrated the first session of our School of Ministry. Anita was the teacher because Joselito was still too sick to get out. We had seventeen students from the rural areas. The subject of the course was Family Counseling. It was a positive experience for Anita to share her studies in this area, because she has finished her Masters program in Christian Family Therapy
  • The Ecuadorian Baptist Convention made a five year agreement with the Pinchincha Baptist Association for the administration of the Quito Faculty of the Ecuadorian Baptist Theological Seminary. As Rector, Joselito hopes that this ministry will be very effective and strategic for our churches in the Andean area.
  • Praise the Lord for Anita and her Masters degree. The graduation ceremony will be in October.
  • Pray for Joselito's health. He is now doing much better, but will continue with the medical treatment and will have to rest.
With love in Christ: Joselito & Anita Orellana. (Galatians 2:20).

  • The weather has been very cold in Quito. We received a significant blessing this month from a donor. The donor gave us the finances necessary to totally pay the debt for my truck. We give many thanks to our Lord Jesus first and foremost, and then to this lovely family.
  • This month we continue offering pastoral support to our brother Walter Chavez. His physical condition is terminal, but his spiritual condition is wonderful.
  • We are doing premarital counseling with a Christian couple from Candelaria Baptist Church. The wedding ceremony will be in April. Also we continue teaching a class every Wednesday on the subject of, "How to be a Christian Family"
  • Joselito shared a special conference for young people on the biblical meaning of the love. It was a wonderful experience to preach the Gospel of our Lord Jesus to this group.
  • Joselito took an intensive course in Vision International University on "Projects Design" in order to meet the final requirements for graduation.
  • Joselito was accepted into another doctoral program with Vision International University. He will start the program in March. He will work toward a Doctor of Ministry, with focus in Missiology.
  • We had an important meeting with the board of missions agency in Ecuador. We met to discuss a special agreement with our agency in the USA.
  • Continue praying for Anita and her graduation project. She is excited but at the same time is stressed out in the process.
  • Praise the Lord for His provision to pay off the debt on our truck.
  • Pray for Joselito's upcoming academic program.
