Born into an idol worshipping family of subsistence farmers in a remote, Muslim dominated area, Danladi is one of 7 children. When a pastor came to share the gospel he invited the father to church, where the father was overjoyed and brought the whole family, who all committed themselves to Christ.
Because they could not afford school fees Matthew spent only 3 years in the local school, which had no qualified teachers and little effective education took place. When the pastor understood the situation he asked the father for permission to bring Danladi to Jos for education and discipleship. The father agreed and he pastor brought him to CFI.
