Today’s devotionals was inspired by a visit we took to Yad Vashem, the Holocaust museum in Israel. Surrounding the museum is the Righteous Among the Nations garden and memorial honoring non-Jewish men and women who took great risks to rescue and protect Jews during the Holocaust.  Rev. Pieter and Adriana Muller showed great bravery during the Holocaust.  You can read more of their story here.

The picture captures our meaningful encounter.  Abraham, the Jewish boy whose life was saved, is pointing to the names of his “adoptive” parents.  His wife is next to him.

Abraham’s parents survived the Holocaust and he was reunited with them.  But Abraham remained lifelong friends with the Muller family.  The other woman (pictured with her husband on the right side of the picture) is one of Rev. and Mrs. Muller’s granddaughters.  She is the daughter of one of the Muller’s oldest children making her close in age to Abraham.  The two couples are close friends.

You can read the devotional at odb.org.

All is well,

Lisa
