Encouraging #quotes from #CorrieTenBoom for A to Z Challenge 2017

During their time in the concentration camp after long, hard days of work, Corrie and her sister Betsie held worship services in their barracks with the other women, using a Bible they had managed to sneak into the camp. Corrie writes in her book The Hiding Place, “At first Betsie and I called these meetings with great timidity. But as night after night went by and no guard ever came near us, we grew bolder… A single meeting might include a recital of the Magnifacat in Latin by a group on Roman Catholics, a whispered hymn by some Lutherans, and  a sotto-voce chant by Eastern Orthodox women. With each moment, the crowd around us would swell… At last either Betsie or I would open the Bible. Because only the Hollanders could understand the Dutch text, we would translate aloud in German. And then we would hear the life-giving words passed back along the aisles in French, Polish, Russian, Czech, and back into Dutch. They were little previews of heaven, these evenings beneath the light bulb.” (10 Amazing Things…about Corrie Ten Boom)
