Veteran Missionary (20 Years - Bolivia)
- PROFILE -
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 20 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 several years.
