Jorge & Suani Ortiz

Jorge and Suani Ortiz are our missionaries from Ecuador to Peru. Jorge, 26 (2016), graduated from the University of the Hemispheres of Quito in Political Science, and is now a part-time student at the Baptist Theological College in Peru. Suani, 22 (2016), graduated from university in Gastronomy (UDLH). They are Ecuadorians by birth, married in November 2016, and now serve with Open Air Campaigners in Peru.

The following verse of Scripture burned in their hearts the evening before their call to be missionaries: "But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matthew 6:33). That night, David and Monica Proaño with Open Air Campaigners Ecuador, shared with them about the possibility of serving the Lord in fulltime ministry.

It all started when they saw the ministry of David and Monica several years before, while they were serving in their local church. They began going out with them into the streets, plazas, parks, schools, universities, nursing homes, and orphanages. It was during this time that the Lord called them to this ministry, and they were accepted onto OAC Ecuador staff. They began training in Ecuador, and then the door opened for them to go to Peru.

In November 2016, they moved to Lima, and began a ministry of evangelism on staff with OAC Peru (CAMPAÑAS AL AIRE LIBRE PERÚ), which is now legally registered with the Peru government. Working together as a couple, God is greatly using them to reach the unreached in the main plaza of Lima, in parks, a Reformatory Place for men emerging from their addiction to drugs, in a Hospital for people with terminal illnesses, etc. They also developed a drama team that accompanied them on outreaches. In every meeting, people are challenged to trust Christ, and are invited to local churches. They have even done the evangelism for a medical team in the jungle.

A seminary in Lima invited OAC to train some of their pastors from the interior in open air evangelism. Along with David Wilson and David Proaño, they helped train about 70 pastors and church leaders. This led to invitations for them to go to the interior and help these pastors train teams, and take them out for open air evangelism. They have also trained several churches in Lima, and sometimes work with church teams that Samuel has trained.

Jorge and Suani have left their country, family, friends and careers to serve the Lord in the ripe harvest fields of Peru. On this journey of faith, they are trusting God to provide for their personal and ministry needs through His people. They need your prayers and financial support as they proclaim the Good News of Salvation on the front line of evangelism in Peru.
