Our Missionary Teacher: Kristen Matasovsky

Miss Matasovsky, a daughter of Zion and our missionary support in South Africa

For the past year Zion Lutheran School has been supporting Miss Kristen Matasovsky through our prayers and chapel offerings.  Miss Matasovsky is a daughter of Zion Lutheran, having been baptized here years ago, before her family moved to Iowa.  She graduated from Concordia University and served as a Lutheran elementary teacher in Texas for several years before taking a call to serve as a missionary teacher in South Africa.  We are very proud of Miss Matasovsky’s accomplishments and her example as she gave up her comfortable American lifestyle for a very different one in South Africa.

Miss Matasovsky gives us regular updates on her time and experiences teaching at St. Peter Christian College in Middleburg, South Africa.  Please take a moment to read her newsletters that she has made and that have been posted below.  Miss Matasovsky does need your help!  First, she needs your prayers of support.  Second, she needs financial support.  Every LCMS missionary has the added responsibility of raising the funds necessary to support their mission.  We give what we can through our school chapel offerings, but its really only a drop in the bucket.  If you would like to make a donation to Miss Matasovsky, please talk to Mr. Splittgerber.

Miss Matasovsky's Grade 3 class (I don't have all boys in my class, as so many have wondered.  Our dress code does not allow the girls to have the artificial hair braids and weaves that most typically wear.  They have to have their natural hair and because it is so coarse, most wear it short.)
