John and Bessie Gonlehs saga of faith and endurance extends over seventeen years. Fleeing from Liberias civil war where John was wrongly imprisoned and miraculously survived his own execution, to corrupt United Nations camps in the Ivory Coast and Guinea, the Gonleh family went from a comfortable life in a suburb to living in the most primitive conditions. As penniless immigrants bound for America, God arranged for them to meet a total stranger in a Belgium airport who would financially provide for them and pen their astounding and horrific true story so it could be used to encourage and strengthen the faith of other believers. In this riveting, hardtoputdown book, readers will see the faith of a flawed family in action against witchcraft, starvation, grief and other hardships in the midst of a country turned upside down by civil war. They wonder why God miraculously protects them in some circumstances, but in others leaves them vulnerable and exposed. They ask how in the midst of Gods clear provision they can experience a doubt so great that John even considers a premeditated murder justifiable. The Gonlehs remarkable story of faith, and obedience in listening to the voice of God, changed their lives, and will change the life of everyone that reads it.
The Gonlehs were devoted Christians but the ravages of war and the death of three of their children would push their faith to the breaking point. They battled hunger, disease and the daily possibility of death at the hands of rebel soldiers children armed with automatic weapons. Even as they witnessed great miracles, they struggled against crushing doubts doubts so powerful that John, a Baptist minister, nearly became a murderer himself. As they recount the details of their harrowing escape, their tragedies and triumphs are strung together with a thread of faith.
