Angela was fortunate to grow up in a Christian home where regular church attendance was a natural
part of life. She accepted Christ at the age of 8 where her mom led her through the plan of salvation. Early in life she felt led to missions. Through her teens she was able to share her faith as counselor at a Baptist camp, and as an adult through service in her church as a Sunday school teacher and youth leader. From time to time, she thought about her call to missions and felt she was serving in the best way possible through her work in her church, community and as a special education teacher. In 2009 she
served on her first mission trip to Galeana, Mexico and she came back dreaming on the next time she could serve. That opportunity came in 2018 when she served with U.S. AMEN in Costa Rica. She is fully committed to continuing the work the Lord has started in Central America.
