Angie Wheeler was first called to Mozambique in 2000 to serve as a nurse, but God had a bigger plan. As she worked in a children's center clinic, she began to have a heart for the youth. God gave her the vision of a house with a garden. a place where teenagers could gain life skills through loving relationships and continued discipleship. In September of 2002, Angie officially launched Beacon of Hope - Africa. Today Beacon of Hope - Africa is in its 10th year of ministry and each January welcomes teenage boys into the Hope House. The students participate in a three-year program and are trained in Bible, academics, and a trade. Angie believes in providing skills without giving a handout and upon graduation, the boys are expected to find a job and build a life for themselves.
