Born into a family of idol worshippers, Matthew only attended primary school for a short time, because the pastor teaching them left the district. Matthew then went to help with the family farm work.
When his elder brother converted to Christianity he visited home and shared the gospel with the family. Matthew believed and became a Christian. When his brother was leaving he asked to take Matthew, and after refusing at first his father eventually allowed him to go. Matthew was taken to Baba Zagi for discipleship training and primary education. Later he was brought to CFI to allow him to complete his secondary schooling and further bible training.
