Her parting was sudden and unexpected. After the National Pastors’ Retreat held in Salinas from July 31 to August 2, date which coincided with her birthday, Pastor Georgina was happy as the pastors sang to her for her birthday on the bus taking them home. When she arrived at her house the folks from the church that she pastored had a surprise birthday party for her. On Tuesday, August 4, Georgina felt an intense headache which made her feel very sick and on the way to the hospital she became unconscious. She never awoke again.
Georgina was born on August 2, 1947, in the Chunchi region, Chimborazo province, a village 80 miles south of Riobamba, the capital city of the province. At age 17 she married Isidro Ortega Rosero. After 16 years of marriage she was widowed. Some years later, at the age of 36, in a healing campaign, Georgina was healed of asthma and she gave her life to Christ. It was a campaign in which the children from Sunday School had to take their parents and her son, Oscar, took her.
Sister Georgina had two daughters and four sons: Carmita, Isidro, Santiago, Elena, Holger y Oscar and eight great-grandchildren.
Pastor Georgina was a licensed minister of the Ecuador Coast District. She entered the ministry at 53 years of age and she faithfully served in the Church of the Nazarene for 15 years in Sunday School ministries, cell groups in homes and in pastoral ministry. She was part of the Central Church of the Nazarene, Cantón Milagro, Province del Guayas, Ecuador. She began a preaching point which she led and developed which is now the “Agua de Vida” (Water of Life) Church of the Nazarene.
