IMPOSSIBLE FAITH:

The Story of Corrie ten Boom

“I’ve read the book but this…this was so impacting. I laughed, I cried…and that’s all I’ll say.”

“My grandson never sits still for anything and he did today!”

IMPOSSIBLE FAITH: 

The Story of Corrie ten Boom

A true story about having faith in difficult times

“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.”  Hebrews 10:23

Having faith in difficult times is no easy thing. A powerful example of this is the story of Corrie ten Boom. While the enemy of our soul uses difficulties and trials to try to derail our faith in God, our Heavenly Father uses them to deepen our faith, grow our character and mature our hope. Knowing God’s Word is crucial to persevering in our faith and Corrie’s story shows audiences this very thing.

My drama, IMPOSSIBLE FAITH, is based on the true story of Corrie ten Boom, a courageous Dutch Christian woman.
She and her sister, Betsie, found themselves imprisoned during WWII in Ravensbruck, one of Hitler’s 42,000 death camps that  were spread throughout Europe. They were there for helping to rescue Jews.

 Corrie struggled as she watched her sister waste away because of the hatred and cruelty of the Nazis. It would be easy to give into bitterness and unforgiveness in that place.

However, God revealed He was with them in many different and often miraculous ways. A lifeline to Corrie, her sister, Betsie and many other prisoners, was a little Bible they had smuggled into the camp. It became a very real source of strength; helping them hold onto the promises of God, through Jesus, their Living Hope.
Though Betsie would pass away in Ravensbruck, she would meet her Hope. However, Corrie would be released due to a clerical error and go on to travel to some sixty-six countries, sharing with a hurting world, the Hope that saw her through that very difficult time.
