I was born into a family that was filled with conflict. Even though my parents were Christians, they didn't live a life committed to the Lord. My father was a violent man and unfaithful to my Mom. I didn't have a happy childhood due to all these problems in my home. There were different people that took me to church even when my parents didn't attend. At the age of 15, a Word of Life missionary came to my province for a camp. He preached the Gospel all week long, and I wanted to receive Christ, but I was embarrassed about what my friends from church would say. Talking to me one day he said: " You can know the entire Bible, but not know the God of the Bible in your life..." So, on a campfire night, I received Christ as my personal Savior.
I had known about Word of Life because of the camps and the children's show that visited my province, and I always dreamed about being a part of that ministry. When I graduated from high school, I was able to go to the Bible Institute for four years and God used that time to call me to serve him full-time. I joined the staff in 1999 and have been serving ever since. I met my wife in the year 2001, she came from Romania to study at the Bible Institute; we got married in 2003.
My name is Anisoara Andries, I'm from Romania. My first contact with Word of Life was in the year 1995 when I attended a Word of Life camp. Starting that same year, and until the year 2000, I was a part of the staff in Word of Life Romania. I was a secretary and also involved in different ministries like: children's show, Bible Clubs, and counseling. In the year 2001 I was able to study for three years in the Bible Institute in Argentina, that's where I met my husband. We got married in 2003, two weeks after I was accepted as a Word of Life missionary. We have two kids: Tomas and Bianca.
