On May 5, 2019, Orfila E. Banda went to be with our heavenly Father. Her and Marcelino have supported bilingual ministry for decades. They are strong supporters of not only Jóvenes for Christ, but Lubbock Christian University (LCU) in Lubbock, Texas. The Orfila E. Banda Memorial Scholarship will be endowed at LCU to help a student who has shown leadership in the bilingual ministry.
