Matthew Kuehl grew up in South Africa as the child of ZEMA missionaries. He graduated with a degree in Intercultural Studies (Missions) from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, IL.
He served as a summer intern with ZEMA in Swaziland and went on two Missions trips to Malawi. He is currently support raising to return ‘home’ to work amongst the people, the amaZioni, who captured his heart from his earliest memories.
Matthew says, “I believe God has called me to work with the amaZioni. Right now, as a single man, I feel God is leading me to pursue ministry among the amaZioni in a step by step fashion. God has provided an opportunity with ZEMA to come in a short-term capacity serving in Gauteng. This would allow me to further my studies (taking some graduate courses), help practically in this new and fast developing field and allow me to exercise my gifts in teaching at the weekend Bible colleges and preaching in local Zion churches. During this time my hope is that God will confirm His call on my life and, God willing, after this period, He will lead me to return with ZEMA in a permanent placement. I ask you to pray for my fundraising needs, my ministry in Gauteng and for God’s will to be done in my life.”
