From earliest memory, I served alongside my parents in Vacation Bible School, Children’s Church, AWANA, Holland Rescue Mission, nursing homes and Spanish outreach, learning how to reach people for Jesus and developing a passion for missions. Two years ago, after graduating from Liberty University with a degree in Studio and Digital Arts, I  spent the summer as a missions photography intern at Association of Baptists for World Evangelism (ABWE) headquarters. I learned the value and need for storytelling in the mission field, discovering more ways that God could use me and my camera to help tell the story of His redeeming grace. 


When I finished my internship and returned to my home church, Calvary Baptist, I began applying my skills and giftedness to help tell God’s story in Holland, Michigan. In addition to taking thousands of pictures for my church and producing videos to promote mission conference and other church events, I’ve helped to tell missionary stories through video and photography. God gave me the opportunity to travel to Nebraska to record stories of missionaries working with Iraqi refugees, and I traveled to Romania to tell stories of missionaries working in children’s ministry – an area near and dear to my heart! 


Last summer, I traveled to the continent of Africa to tell the story of medical missionaries in Togo. I believe that God is leading me to return to Togo for a year-long project with ABWE, where I will be working as a media specialist. I will be telling the stories of Togolese people who have been transformed by the gospel, and I will be equipping missionaries with video stories to share with their own supporters to tell of the amazing work God is doing in Togo. I will also be able to use my training to work alongside missionaries in Togo ministering to people with disabilities.


I want to invite you to be a part of my team! Will you commit to pray for me? Also, would you consider becoming a financial partner? The monthly amount I need to raise is $2,175. You can give a special one -time gift or monthly gifts. Any amount will be greatly appreciated and put to a good purpose! Click the "partner with me" tab above for more information and to sign up for my monthly newsletters.


I am humbled by the grace of God in my life, and I can’t wait to see what God might accomplish through me in Togo. Thank you for your support of me and my work, and please pray for Togo!

In Christ's service,

Liz Ortiz
