Many people react to hard times by giving up. In Full Armor tells the'story of one man who battled adversity tirelessly and never quit. One of eleven children, Clifford Field Frith spent his boyhood in rural Franklin County, Virginia, in the pre-Depression era. To help his family survive, he drove mule teams. After a traumatic family event in his early teens, Frith surrendered his life to the Lord in full time ministry. Later, he was the pastor for three congregations. During World War II Frith served in Normandy, France as a chaplain and captain in the US Army. He volunteered to help medics aid and evacuate the wounded from battle. One soldier remarked to a war correspondent: The chaplain walks right in where othe's fear to go. For valor under heavy enemy fire, Chaplain Frith received the'silver Star. He later lost an eye on a risky mission to save a corporal's life. After the war, he, his wife, Ruth, and their three teenagers cared for sixty needy children over the course of fifteen years. His story also follows their family life at Bell Haven as Daddy Frith practiced his faith through caring. This biography offers an inspirational account of his efforts not only to deal with his own physical disability, but also to improve the lives of othe's, including his neighbors, needy children, the native Americans, and retirees. Peggy Wade, his daughter, relates the'story of this humanitarian's exemplary life; his bold faith in action challenges us to help better the lives of othe's by using our resources and time.
