Richard & Ruth Heldenbrand (retired)


Dick sailed for North Africa in 1957, Ruth in 1958. They met in Tunis and were married May 2, 1964 in Algiers. They had two sons, Sam was born in Philadelphia in 1967 and Dan in Algeria in 1968. Sam and family live in southern Spain and are missionaries to North Africa. Dan served the Lord several years, then drifted and took his life in April 2011.

Dick and Ruth did evangelism and discipling in Algeria from 1959-1970, when they were expelled. From 1972-1982, they were missionaries in Morocco, where Dick also worked as an engineer "tentmaker". After five years in Warsaw, Indiana, they headed to France in 1987 for more evangelism, discipling, and attempts at church planting. They left France in January 2013 to retire to Goshen, Indiana.
