“Death At The Grass Huts: A Story of God’s Grace and Human Endeavor”: an engrossing narrative that talks about the human endeavor in relying on God’s encompassing mercy and grace. “Death At The Grass Huts: A Story of God’s Grace and Human Endeavor” is the creation of published author Rudolf Duerksen, a person who spent his early years living the pioneer lifestyle in a Mennonite colony in the harsh climate of the Grand Chaco.

Duerksen writes, “Growing up in the vast Paraguayan wilderness of thorn trees, snakes, and unreached indigenous tribes that threaten his family’s survival, Rudolf Duerksen takes the reader on a journey of the harsh realities faced by Mennonite settlers in South America.

“Told from the perspective of the first generation born to Russian Mennonite refugees that settled in the Gran Chaco in Paraguay, “Death At The Grass Huts” is a memoir about human endeavor and reliance on God’s grace in the face of adversity.

“There are stories about making the first contact with indigenous tribes to developing a thriving economy alongside them—stories about misfortune and great personal sacrifice it took to turn Latin America’s ‘green hell’ into a prosperous community,” says Duerksen.

“Along the way, Duerksen finds himself cutting wheat fields in Kansas to delivering groceries on the narrow streets of old town Basel in Switzerland—from loading a plane in Texas headed to South America full of cows to starting a home for abandoned children on the gritty streets of Asuncion.

“In the end, these stories are all about revealing our shared humanity and what’s possible when we follow God’s leading.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Rudolf Duerksen’s new book is an enthralling masterpiece that awakens the readers as the author takes them to a reality that the other side of the world is currently facing—adversity.

With this purpose, Duerksen urges the readers to rely on and have faith in God no matter what situation they are facing in life.
