ana angulo

Hi, I'm Ana! I was born and raised here in Rivas, Nicaragua. Bethel Center of Hope was founded after I ventured into a part of my hometown that I had never seen before. On my walk I encountered the city dump, and I was overwhelmed by a reality that I didn't know existed in my own town. I used to be very involved with YWAM (Youth With a Mission) throughout Central America, the United States, and Thailand. I have a huge heart for Southeast Asia, but after my journey to the dump it became clear that God had me back in Rivas to serve a different purpose.
