Matt and Dee Dee Wasmund: Serving the Lord in South Korea and East Asia

Matt and Dee Dee Wasmund

Serving the Lord in South Korea/East Asia


Matt and Dee Dee Wasmund, along with their daughters, Lily and Olivia, live in Seoul, South Korea, where Matt serves as the Asia educator manager for The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS). In this role, Matt supports and advocates for LCMS missionaries in the region who are principally involved in education at schools, English centers and local churches. These ministries touch the lives of hundreds of students of all ages. Matt also engages with church and school leaders in these various sites, seeking effective ways to serve together for the sake of the Gospel.

As a ministry team, the Wasmunds also facilitate short-term mission opportunities to enhance existing ministries in the Asia region and happily participate in the church life of their overseas congregation, International Lutheran Church in Seoul. The Wasmunds consider both Faith Lutheran Church in Eustis, Fla., and Christ Our Savior Lutheran Church in Loudon, Tenn., as their home congregations.


Please lift up the Wasmund family in prayer as they serve in East Asia. They share: “We are very grateful for the ministry partners who support us in many ways, not the least including faithful prayers lifted up on our behalf for protection, wisdom and continued guidance. We sincerely thank you.”

Let us give thanks to God that the Wasmunds are serving in this part of the world.

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod Inc., including Mission Central (in Mapleton, Iowa), is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

A contribution designated (restricted) for a specific purpose, when accepted, will be used only to fund expenses related to that purpose. Occasionally, we may receive more in contributions for a particular purpose than can be wisely applied to it in the foreseeable future or the purpose may cease to be feasible. In these situations, the LCMS will make reasonable attempts to contact contributors to apply their contribution toward another aspect of ministry that aligns closely the contributor’s goals and values. If a contributor cannot be contacted, the LCMS will use the gift to meet a similar pressing need that most closely matches the contributor's original intent.

Consistent with Synod Board policy and in recognition of a more challenging economic and philanthropic/fundraising environment due to inflationary pressure, not more than 13.5 percent of any charitable contribution will be allocated to administering gifts and communicating with contributors. Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.
