Matt is a young man who uses a power wheelchair and has speech problems.

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada and Matt is a young man who uses a power wheelchair and has speech problems. Although Matt goes to church with his family, he had yet to confess Jesus as his savior. But that changed after attending our Family Retreat. On the way home from camp, Matt could not stop thinking about the Gospel message he had heard at Family Retreat. And so, he logged onto Facebook and instant messaged one of our staff members he met at retreat. He wrote her: “Deb, I feel like I’m ready to turn my life to God.” Immediately, Deb phoned Matt and together, she led this young man with speech delays slowly through the Sinner’s Prayer. Luke chapter 15 says heaven rejoices over one sinner who repents, so join us in celebrating Matt’s salvation. Send him a note of encouragement at joniandfriends.org where you can learn more about Family Retreats.
