Laura & Dalmiro Ortiz


South American Mission

Church Planting


Dalmiro and Laura are missionaries in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Dalmiro grew up in the small town of Agua Blanca in the southern region of Bolivia but moved to Santa Cruz to further his education after high school. The Lord drew Dalmiro to Himself during his time in Santa Cruz. The Lord instilled within Laura a passion for missions during high school. After teaching in the US for a few years, the Lord called her to South America to use her gifts in education at the Santa Cruz Christian Learning Center. They met during this time and married in 2011.

Dalmiro’s and Laura’s ministry focuses are church planting, evangelism, and discipleship in the least reached areas of Bolivia, most often the rural areas. They have a heart for these areas because this is the context in which Dalmiro grew up. They have a passion to disciple people in Christ and be used by Him to impact and lead others in His ways.

How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent?
