April is the wife of Angel Ocasio and mother to 5 children. She grew up as a pastor's daughter and accepted Christ at an early age. As a young adult she made poor choices that led into a time of despair, but God has given her victory over her past and is now using it to reach others with the Love of Jesus. April and Angel have a heart for those who are broken and in need of Jesus. They are excited about God's call to serve Halifax through Uplift and pray that many will come to know Jesus as Lord!
