Heroes of the Faith … and Courage: A Virtual Tour of the Ten Boom Museum

Just when I think I know about courage and faith …

Here is a follow-up to our last post about the ten Boom family …
We wanted you to see, and learn, for yourself, what the ten Boom family did, and how their legacy is being kept alive through the Ten Boom Museum. The link below will take you directly to the home page of the “tenboom.org” website, where you will actually be able to take a virtual tour of the museum, the actual “Hiding Place,” where over 800 Jews were saved from certain death through the courage and faith of the ten Boom family.
You’ll also have the opportunity to learn about the family, and to share in this legacy work.

Guest Post: Heroes of the Faith: The ten Booms and Sunday’s Anniversary

We are honored to feature this guest post from Dr. Mike Evans.
Dr. Evans is the Executive Director of The Corrie ten Boom Fellowship, as well as Chairman of the Board of the Corrie ten Boom Foundation in Ha’arlem, Holland, which operates the ten Boom Holocaust Museum. He also founded The Jerusalem Prayer Team, which is a direct outreach of the Corrie ten Boom Fellowship. He founded Churches United with Israel, Inc., the Middle East Media Group, the Evans Institute of Middle East Studies, The Jerusalem World News and TimeWorthy Books.

This is a post Dr. Evans sent me to recognize an important anniversary,
and it gives us an opportunity to introduce to many of you his work, especially in regard to the ten Boom Holocaust Museum. Growing up, in our home, Corrie ten Boom was a hero of the faith, and I can always remember a copy of “The Hiding Place,” and other books by Corrie ten Boom, being on our bookshelves. She was one of Mom’s most admired people, and authors. Enjoy the post, and please, look around at the various resourses you’ll be able to enjoy, as well:

Dear Ted,

Here’s my latest article published on Glenn Beck’s The Blaze. It is about the amazing ten Boom family and their love and sacrifice for the Jewish people. It was 69 years ago this coming Sunday that Casper ten Boom died after spending 10 days in prison. Please take a few moments to read the article, and if you could give positive feedback or comments, it will help us expand our influence through this outlet. Also, you may want to forward this to other family and friends who love the Jewish people. I believe they will enjoy reading this wonderful story.
