TDF Extra 31 - He Said She Said

New game! He Said She Said. Andrea Becker joins us again for a TDF Extra. Enjoy and tell us what you think of this game. Andrea Becker bio: My name is Andrea Becker, I’m a wife, mom, daughter, friend and idealist. I was born to a South African born mom and a Germany born father in Canada with 4 brothers. As a teenager I experienced my first taste of travel with my mom on a trip to South Africa after Apartheit in 1994. Thereafter, I travelled on a mission trip to Germany with Teen Missions International. Much of my teen life consisted of me working and saving money to travel on various other missions trips around the world. In 2002 I attended an international Bibleschool in Germany which led to me finally moving to Germany in 2005 to study education. I’ve lived here ever since, have 3 boys, and a husband who recently started his own business as a “Pornfree Coach” (helping people get out of Pornography). Together we have our own coverband and do wedding gigs etc. as time allows (and corona). I’ve been teaching in Germany for several years and love it more than I ever would have imagined. We’ve currently chosen to have Germany as our base, but we’re open to where God will Lead.
