15 Interstate Batteries Team Members Serve in Romania
Fifteen of Interstate Batteries team members recently returned from a venture to Timisoara, Romania, to work with the “LIFE Romania” ministry at their summer camp. Members from Dallas, Urbandale, and Minneapolis united, many meeting each other for the first time, to work and play together with the common purpose of enriching the lives of the Romanian children.
The trip was full of fun and excitement. Rumor has it Mary Kyle Hendon, a project office coordinator in our Dallas office, received a proposal with a 14-carat candy ring pop as her enticement. She’s decided to remain friends with her 8-year old suitor, Sebi. Age difference, you know.
Marketing Specialist -Rachel Cannon- taught the kids one of her favorite games, “Pterodactyl,” but after several attempts to engage them, she realized they weren’t getting it. Once she found a suitable translation of Deeno-saur, though, the kids went wild with it.
The trip was a great success, according to Adam Bowman, the associate chaplain. He shared how receptive the children were despite the language barrier, and how wonderful it was to see them accepting Christ as their savior.
This made the long journey from home well worth it. Each member was able to share their Servant’s Hearts with Love as a Team to the children of Timisoara.
