Theda and I were room mates on a mission trip to Germany. We were visiting a sister church in Darmstadt and were staying with church members. The couple Theda and I were with were not both church members. Frieda and Deter are their names. She was a member and he was not. He was mad one day because she was taking us on an outing and they got into a big argument that night after we went to bed. They were yelling in German so we had no idea what was going on. Theda said "what do we do" I said "Pray!"
Later Frieda came in and told us Deter wanted her to run an errand for him that day. She took us instead.
I was a diet coke fanatic at the time and tried for two days to get them to stop at a store for me. Fnally Theda yelled out - "there is a store that is open". We went in and they would not take my American money. I panicked until Theda came up and handed over German money her neighbors had given her for the trip. My lifesaver.
I really miss her. Deanna Stein
