Where I’m from: Missionary Kid ;D
“You have said, “Seek my face.” My heart says to you, “Your face, LORD, do I seek.” – Psalm 27:8
Though born in Canada, Matthew grew up in the Dominican Republic as a YWAM Missionary Kid. During his DTS in Chiang Rai Thailand in early 2010, he heard the call of God to serve in Thailand long term. Matthew joined YWAM Chiang Rai Base as staff in August 2011, working hard to learn the language and culture before studying the SBS in 2012. "The best season of my life" he said, reflecting on the transformation that God worked in his life during that school.
Matthew’s passion is, of course, to know God and make Him known. He is especially interested in helping people discover their calling and be equipped to live it out. He believes that God is calling him to the areas of leadership, discipleship, and evangelism. He enjoys building relationships with people in the community and practicing his Thai through the sharing of the love of Jesus. He also enjoys sports and reading.
