I visited the Ten Boom house in 1993 when I stayed in Haarlem for a week before
beginning a tour of Europe. The museum was staffed with volunteers and the English speaking
guide, an American, had come specifically to live in Haarlem and to volunteer at the house. It
was an amazing experience to actually walk through the Ten Boom shop and home, climb the stairs
and see the hiding place in Corrie’s room.
I have long been inspired by the
Corrie ten Boom ministry. I appreciate finding this site, going on the virtual tour, seeing
that the home and shop have been so beautifully restored and learning that Corrie’s ministry
not only continues, but thrives.
