Teaching at Faith Academy in the Philippines; middle school students, grades 6 to 8.
Please pray that Diana can express the love that she has for MKs and perhaps burden others to minister as teachers.
Diana Muenzenberger grew up going to church with her mom and accepted Jesus as her Savior at age 6. She was baptized at age 10, but it wasnât until her freshman year in high school that she really started to grow spiritually.
After graduating high school, Diana struggled to find a major of study. In 1991, she entered Philadelphia Biblical University. It was there that God increased her love for teaching and missions and she also sensed God moving her toward education. Each year during my spring semester our school had a missions conference. And each year God molded and moved my heart closer to missions, says Diana.
Diana graduated in 1995 and that summer went on what was supposed to be a three-week missions trip to Faith Academy in the Philippines. She ended up being there for nine weeks, which God used to burden her heart for missionary kids.
Diana finds the most fulfilling part of being a missionary is the deep relationships she is able to develop with her students. âThey call me Miss M, she laughs, âOnce a student moves from Miss Muenzenberger to Miss M, then I know the relationship has become deep.â
Seeing students grow academically and spiritually energizes her the most. âIt is so exciting to be used by God to change students lives, she adds. Like every teacher, Diana wants her students to learn and grow academically; however, as a Christian teacher, it is far better to her to see spiritual growth happening in her students.
