A Visit with Corrie ten Boom

Sunday, January 14

Gayle Haas will portray Corrie ten Boom who was born on April 15,1892, in Holland. Corrie observed the lifestyle of her parents that demonstrated the value of every life, regardless of color or creed. The ten Boom family lived peaceable lives until 1940, when the Nazis invaded the Netherlands. In 1942, she and her family became active in the Dutch underground aiding and hiding Jews. In 1944, the Nazis raided the ten Boom house. Corrie and family members were arrested for their work with the resistance. Corrie and her older sister Betsie were held for 10 months in 3 different prisons. Shortly after Betsie's death in December of 1944, Corrie was released having completed her sentence. Later she learned that her release was due to a clerical error. Corrie returned home to Holland where she set up centers for people of all races and creed in effort to bring healing and comfort after the ravages of World War II. Corrie traveled to over 60 countries, and shared her message.
