IN BORROWED HOUSES by Frances Fuller is Available Now
According to CBS news, more than 270 Americans were killed during the Lebanon civil war, which occurred from 1975 through 1990. Many other Americans were kidnapped, many of them missionaries who had traveled to Lebanon to provide shelter, food, medical assistance and spiritual help to the people there. Frances Fuller and her husband, Wayne, were two such missionaries. "In Borrowed Houses: a true story of love and faith amidst war in Lebanon" (published by WestBow Press) is Frances' riveting account of living in Lebanon during the dangerous civil war. Many headline events of the time impacted the Fullers' lives and are vividly described, though the book becomes, not a history, but a profound spiritual memoir.
"In Borrowed Houses" depicts Frances and Wayne's multitude of struggles: producing Christian literature in Arabic, renovating an abandoned house to be their home and serving the physical and spiritual needs of the people around them. It is an unusual revelation, full of humorous and inspiring stories of what life is like when civilians who want nothing but peace have to watch as their country disintegrates from violence.
An excerpt from the epilogue in "In Borrowed Houses":
"When I consider the failures and trauma and dangers of those days in the war, I remember also a shining joy and know that this was pure gift, the reward for nothing but staying in my life."
