Her Companion

In 1976, Corrie ten Boom asked Pam Rosewell Moore to be her companion. At that time, the book's recent releases and movie versions of The Hiding Place had opened up unprecedented platforms for Miss ten Boom's message. Invitations for her to speak were being received from all over the world, but by this time, her travels were restricted mainly to and within the United States.

Pam Rosewell Moore, an English woman who had lived and worked for several years with the team of Brother Andrew ("God's Smuggler") in the Netherlands, accompanied Miss ten Boom to America and, in 1977, to Southern California when the beloved spiritual pioneer, then 85 years old, decided to make her home there. When successive strokes took Corrie ten Boom's powers of speech and communication and left her an invalid, Pam served as nurse and companion with the help of a team of nurses and volunteers in daily ministry until her death on April 15, 1983, her ninety-first birthday.

In 1988, Pam Moore joined the staff of Dallas Baptist University at the invitation of its president, Dr. Gary Cook, as director of a newly established Intercessory Prayer Ministry. It was President Gary Cook's idea to establish a Corrie ten Boom Room on campus, and this was dedicated by Joni Eareckson Tada in the autumn of 1989. Pam has served as both the Curator of the Corrie ten Boom Collection and the Director of Spiritual Life at DBU before moving on to further her career as a noted author and speaker.
