Candidate welcomed

Special event


Cheryl Buxamusa, a former high school speech and theater teacher from Cobleskill, N.Y., will present a dramatic portrayal of Dutch WWII heroine Corrie Ten Boom at 7 p.m. July 12 and 10 a.m. July 13 at Good Hope Lutheran Church, 98 Homestead Drive.

Buxamusa lived many years in the Netherlands, where she worked in evangelism, including delivering Bibles into Eastern Europe with “Open Doors.” During that time, she met Corrie Ten Boom, a leader in the Dutch resistance, who gained recognition for hiding Jewish people in her home.

During 1940-44, the Ten Boom family saved the lives of 880 Dutch Jews. In 1944, the family was betrayed by a Nazi collaborator and sent to a concentration camp. Corrie Ten Boom was the only member to survive the camps.

She was knighted by the queen of Holland, and honored by the state of Israel for her bravery.

The presentation’s theme is “The Greatest of These is Love.”

The Rev. Robert Quaintance will lead both services.

A free-will offering will be taken.
