On April 23, 2011 Orlando Javien Jr. was confirmed in the Catholic Church. The funny thing is when he began his faith journey 4 years earlier his goal was not to be Catholic. Although born, raised and married in the Catholic Church his faith walk would begin at a Protestant Church.
The journey began in the Protestant Church but it sure didn't end there because God had another plan for him.
Desiring to lead his family in the right path Orlando constantly prayed that God would open his wife’s eyes to the errors of the Catholic Church. What God did instead was open his eyes to what was right in the Catholic Church.
It was Orlando’s fervent prayer that God would light a fire upon his wife’s heart. What God did was tell him to stop blowing out her flames.
It was Orlando’s passionate desire to be used in the building of God’s Kingdom. What God told him was that it would be done if he allowed it to be done in the Catholic Church.
Perplexed with that call upon his life he took it to prayer and gained the wisdom to accept the call. Orlando is now an inspiring voice for the Catholic Church sharing his passion as a greeter and usher on Sundays, as an 7th and 8th grade religious education teacher and as an inspirational speaker.
In Orlando's talks he openly tackles issues of faith including breaking the bondage of pornography, restoring a broken marriage, and overcoming financial hardship. He also shares his beautiful journey back to the Catholic faith. Orlando believes that by sharing his struggles and successes others can find freedom and faith beyond ordinary.
"Orlando's talks were very engaging and well-planned. I enjoyed his interesting stories and how he seamlessly tied them into the topics he was covering. After the Men's Conference, I have shown more patience toward my children and have been more willing to help out my wife. Orlando covered a variety of topics throughout the conference and with scriptures, showed how they all pertain to Christ and how He wants us to live. I would highly recommend booking Orlando as your next speaker." - Danny V
"It takes courage for a man to lay bare his struggles and victories for the press. The thing that impresses me most about the Orlando is that he is more concerned with helping others gain victory in this life than he is with the fear of what people may think about him." - Roxanne M
