Angela Rapoza, originally born in Hawaii, has lived in Hawaii and Oregon, USA.
When she was 18, she answered God's call to missions and spent 6 months in Santa Cruz,
Bolivia with Youth with a Mission (YWAM). She returned to Bolivia less than a year later
and was stationed in the town of Entre Rios at the locally based mission. She remained there for
10+ years and ministered to the youth and adults of Entre Rios and in the surrounding villages.
After she had been there for some years she began to have a burden for an indigenous tribe in Bolivia for quite sometime and eventually moved
into the Weenhayek tribal village of Capirendita and has now lived and ministered in the local
church there and in many surrounding villages for the last few years. She primarily ministers to many of the youth in
the area villages and their mothers.
She has been a resident missionary to Bolivia now for over 16 years working in evangelism and discipling, assisting the
local churches and evangelistic teams as well as foreign teams. She speaks fluent
English, Spanish and Weenhayek and at times has been called upon to translate for other
missions and medical teams.
Over a year ago, Angela had it on her heart to begin the long process there of adopting two
young girls, both abandoned, who had been living with her for some months. They had been originally
placed in an orphanage. Ana and Mariela have been with her now for well over a year.
She would like return to the USA for a much needed rest for two months (starting at the end of June 2016) and bring them with her
for a visit.
She has not been back "home" in a year to see her parents and siblings.
Please pray that this trip will result in rest for Angela and further healing
for these two precious young girls and that their expenses will be met. The tickets and expenses for the 3 of them costs over 3000.00 USD. So far $1500.00 USD has been raised from family and the evangelical association in Bolivia.
