Many years ago, while touring parts of Europe with my husband and three children, we
made a point of visiting the Ten Boom watch shop. At that time it was run by another
proprietor. When he learned that we had been reading The Hiding Place to our children while we
were traveling, he kindly led us through his shop and up the stairs to see where people were
hidden. It was a very special moment that none of us have forgotten. The testimony of this
family touched our lives and still influences the work we try to do in the name of our Lord and
Savior, Jesus Christ.
