If you were to go into great danger to save a child, it could take a lot of courage.  But imagine risking your life repeatedly over several years in order to save more than 2000 babies!

The following is a link to guidepostsmag.com and to the true story of an amazing lady named Irena Sendlerowa, a Polish social worker who made countless trips into the Warsaw Ghetto, ultimately saving the lives of 2500 infants. She convinced the authorities that she was entering the ghetto to check for signs of typhus, and then managed to smuggle babies out on her return trips. Even after the Gestapo caught up with her and fractured her legs and feet in 1943, she did not give up her efforts on behalf of these children.

As you will see from this account, Ms. Sendlerowa not only saved all those lives way back in the dark days of the 1940s, but her example had an amazing effect on four young Kansas high school students who first heard of her story while researching a history project just a few years ago.

Interestingly, this account does not ever specifically speak of Ms. Sendlerowa’s faith in God.  But it just does not seem possible that someone could have found so much courage, much less have actually succeeded as well as she did — in impossible circumstances — without Divine help!

I truly hope that you have time to read this story, and that you find it to be as inspiring as I do.
