The son of a Jewish father, Helmut Diefenthal and his wife, Rotraut, survived Nazi Germany and World War II. After the war, they committed their lives to serving God. After many years as missionaries, they retired in 2014. To watch a short video and hear more about their experiences as workers in the global church, click here.
