Struck Down but not Destroyed: The Story of Rudolf Heupel, a German-Russian Immigrant

Ron Baesler’s presentation is based on his book of the same title.  It’s the story of Ron’s maternal grandfather, a man who not only survived but thrived amid difficult times. It is an imaginative reconstruction of Rudolph’s life, based on historical research, his written documents, Ron’s encounters, and family memories. It is a story of how one man struggled to live out his faith in his home, community, and congregation. Ron is a farm boy, physicist, pastor, missionary, seminary professor, gardener, grandfather, father and husband. He was born and raised on a farm in New Leipzig, North Dakota. He graduated from the University of North Dakota, and his first call was as pastor at Peace Lutheran Church in Fargo. Registration.

His work has taken him from the high plains of the upper Midwest to the mountain villages of Madagascar, from the verdant lands of southern Brazil to the exquisite beaches of Puerto Rico, from the chilly climes of North Dakota to the Mediterranean climate of Southern California. Wherever he has gone, he has listened to stories, told stories, and written stories.
