Missionary Presentation Letter 2014

Orellana Family, Missionaries to Ecuador and Latin America

Greetings from Quito-Ecuador, in the Middle of the World!

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:

·         To see our daughters growing like Jesus in the grace of the sweet Lord and serving in the Kingdom of God full time.

·         To see every Evangelical and Baptist Church in Ecuador and Latin America with a prepared servant guiding them biblically.

·         To continue writing many Christian books, sermons, articles, and conferences; and publishing in few Editorials.

·         To travel through Ecuador, Latin American and the Hispanic World offering conferences for pastors and leaders and formal intensive courses. Also specially focus in the people from the country side, and indigenous people.

·         To see our Ecuadorian Seminary become a Baptist University in the future, to train more young people (Luke 10:2; 2 Timothy 2:2)


The International Mission Board of the SBC, in survey taken in our country determined that less than 20% of the leaders and pastors have theological preparation. 80% of the pastors and leaders have not had the opportunity to adequately prepare themselves for ministry. We believe that we are responsible to prepare as many leaders as we are planting churches in Ecuador and Latin America, because this situation it’s same in other countries.

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.

Special letter from our PMM Inc., president: Rev. Art Patray

Dear friends and supporters of Joselito and Anita Orellana:

It is my honor to write to you in behalf of the Orellanas to tell you about their very effective ministry in Ecuador and surrounding countries.  Besides their “local” ministry duties to their local church and other churches and colleges in Ecuador, they also provide valuable training to leaders in surrounding countries in seminars dealing with leadership, counseling, Biblical teaching and preaching, family dynamics according to God’s Word, and marriage and family counseling.  Joselito is also a well respected writer and author and has published bible commentaries as well as books dealing with Christian Education and Theological Education.  He and Anita also work with various ministries from the states and serve as their liaison/seminar-leaders as they together conduct leadership training, and pastoral training programs in various countries in South America. 

 The purpose of my writing today is to inform you about the Ecuadorian economy and cultural issues dealing with the support of pastors and ministers in their area.  First, the local currency in Ecuador is the US dollar and prices are approaching the level of the US economy.  However, salaries are not even closely following the increase in prices.  Culturally, churches have traditionally never paid pastors very much if any at all.  Pastors were always bi-vocational.  Being faith missionaries, the Orellanas must depend on outside support to supplement the small offerings they receive locally.  This is why PMM exists – to help Latin American national missionaries and ministers with their livelihood and ministerial expenses.  And, our Lord has blessed PMM and its partners in the process. 

The Orellanas are receiving only about 50% of the needed allowance level of support at this time.  They need to raise $1500 more monthly to be at the minimum level of support.  Will you please pray with us for God to bring this in for them?  I don’t know how he will move folks to accomplish this, but perhaps He will get several of you to tell others about their very effective ministry, their beautiful God-fearing children they have raised to love our Lord, and their very small income on which they live.  This could be done easily in Bible studies or Sunday School classes, or just in conversations with friends and family.  I personally recommend them to you and attest to the fine work they are doing for our Lord.  And, I recommend them highly to you for your consideration.

Thank you for taking time to read this.  It is very important to the Orellanas and the valuable Kingdom work they are doing. 


Very warmly in Jesus,

Art Patray, President, Palm Missionary Ministries, Inc.

A thanks note from Ingleside Baptist Church (brother Lee Robinson)

Testimony from Reaching & Teaching Intl., Ministries.

February 10, 2014

To Palm Missionary Ministries:
I am pleased to write and inform you of the great blessing that your missionary, Joselito Orellana, is to our ministry. Joselito is crucial to our work in Ecuador. He serves as our key national partner and facilitates many key areas of ministry for us. For instance, he arranges the logistics of our short-term teams to Ecuador and helps facilitate their ministry while in country. He also establishes ministry opportunities for us through the teaching and counseling ministry he has in the community of Tambo, which has led to us being able to bring in teams to serve in this community. He also helps us as legal representative for governmental matters in Ecuador. These are just a few examples of the many ways his ministry has facilitated and furthered the work God to which God has called us.

Joselito is a source of great encouragement for our team and is crucial to the work we do there. We are so grateful that the Lord has him serving in these ways.
