"Evelyn Hinds was such a great inspiration and blessing to our church as she dramatically portrayed the life of Corrie ten Boom. Corrie literally came to life and touched us deeply. Her story reminded us of our duty and responsibility to stand with and love the Jewish people. Her testimony loudly proclaimed that we can stand firm in the Lord in the midst of the most severe trials. The Lord will use Evelyn Hinds to remind your people, "We must not be silent in times like these."
Dr. H. Dean Haun, Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church, Jonesboro, GA, Georgia Co-director, CUFI
"I first went to Israel for a 14-month study program in 1966. It was during that year that Corrie ten Boom came to Israel and had a tree planted in her honor on "The Avenue of the Righteous Gentiles" at the Yad Vashem, a memorial to the Holocaust victims.
She was also able to speak in several places and I was able to sit in on one of her lectures as she shared her testimony of her endeavor to rescue Jewish people and of the time she spent in a concentration camp for doing so.
When I saw the presentation by Evelyn Hinds, I was quite impressed on how well she was able to imitate Corrie's accent and how well she was able to present Corrie's story very much as Corrie herself would have done when she was still living.
It was a presentation well worth seeing and I would highly recommend it to everyone.
Yours for the salvation of Israel,
Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum, Director Ariel Ministries, www.ariel.org, San Antonio, TX
"Evelyn Hinds as Corrie ten Boom was a real blessing to our congregation. Within moments we were swept away to the horrors of the holocaust, and then lifted up with the graces of God's care for Corrie. We laughed and we cried, and we came away with a deep respect for the Ten Boom family and an abiding love for God's chosen nation, Israel. Evelyn Hinds will be a blessing to your church!"
Dr. Randy White, Pastor, First Baptist Church of Katy, TX

"Your presentation of Corrie ten Boom was incredible. I felt as though she had literally walked into the room and captivated our hearts and souls. The reviews we received from our Senior Adults were magnificent! It was an evening we will long remember."
Associate Pastor Larry Sims, First Baptist Church, Texarkana, TX
“Evelyn Hinds’ portrayal of Corrie ten Boom is inspiring for adults, teens as well as children. I saw Evelyn Hind’s performance at a dinner for Women in Christian Media. I was so touched by the authenticity of her performance that I knew we had to have Evelyn come to our school and share “Corrie” with the students, teachers and parents. Everyone was touched and blessed, but especially a little child in 3rd grade. A precious boy was so impacted by the performance that he began to read everything he could about Corrie ten Boom. He did book reports, research projects and wanted to know all that he could about Corrie’s life. His enthusiasm continues today.
I encourage schools, churches and youth organizations to have Evelyn come to provide Corrie ten Boom’s message of the hope and love of Jesus in a dark and fallen world. It will inspire, bless, and encourage your students to know this Jesus, the Jesus that Corrie loved and served with such passion.
Jody Capehart, Founder of Legacy Christian Academy, Author and Speaker, School Administrator for 30 years and former minister to children for 8 years
