National Partners – Chile

Chile

Originally from Ecuador, Ibodne Ortiz came to Christ when he confronted her with her sin at age 23. Ten years later she moved to Chile, graduating from ABWE's theological seminary in 2006.

Passionate about evangelism and gifted in teaching, Ibodne faithfully served her local church in Santiago, Chile in many different roles, overseeing Sunday School materials and teaching children, youth, and women.

At the invitation of ABWE missionary friends, in January 2022 she moved 24 hours north to Iquique, Chile by faith and joined the ministry of the Florece Prenatal & Family Counseling Center as a full-time volunteer counselor and future house mother. In addition, she serves on the church planting team of the Iglesia Bautista de Fe and has a tender heart for the discipleship of young ladies to know and love Jesus Christ.
