Russell Deibler (1905-1943) & Darlene Deibler (1917-2004)
As a young wife, Darlene, with her husband, went to what is now the Western Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea. She was the first American woman to travel into the Bailem Valley where she and her husband worked before WWII broke out. With the Japanese invasion on Papua New Guinea, Darlene and Russell were captured and sent to separate concentration camps. Russell did not survive, but against the odds, Darlene did survive and went on to spend many more years in Papua New Guinea as a missionary.
You can read about her life and how her faith sustained her in the prison camps in her book "Evidence Not Seen: A Woman's Miraculous Faith in the Jungles of World War II."
