Below is an excerpt from a gentleman who worked along side Ms. Ten Boom
"Yes, it was my privilege to be a part of the team that worked with Corrie Ten Boom. It was not a situation where there was a lot of "one with one time", but we all worked together. When she became a part of the World Vision program, it added a lot of life to the same.
Corrie was a very sweet "grandmother type". She was the type of person who reminded everyone of "grandma". She was a very "grandma type" dresser, and was most appreciative of everything that was done on her behalf.
She was a "Jesus person"... always talking about Jesus. She had a great sense of humor. She loved her sister, Betsy, and talked about her a lot.
She had a "cute" accent. In fact, it added much to her persona, and "grandmotherly" image. She was a joy to have around, and never wanted to presume on anyone.
Joy (Linda's cousin) loved hearing her speak, and she was the kind of person that everyone just wanted to walk up and HUG! Our first encounter with her was in Muskegon, Michigan at Maranatha Bible camp. As a matter of fact, this was the same location where Joy was asked to play the piano and I was asked to direct the music for a Billy Graham crusade, when he was first starting out. We had to turn it down because we were just moving to Muskegon a few days before the crusade, and didn't feel we could have time to get prepared for the event. They brought in Cliff Barrows, and I forget who the pianist was.
Many wonderful events were held at Maranatha, and it was a place where we met some wonderful people, through World Vision, from all over the world. It would be fun to do it all over again."
