Steve is so greatful for what God has done in his life; he says:
"Since dedicating my life to Christ and joining the Matthews Church of God the Lord has done great things in my life...trusting in God; He has saved my marriage,and He has delivered me from depression.
My prayer is that I always listen to the Holy Spirit for his guidance, to lead like Jesus and to be an armor-bearer to Pastor Brackett and a help to all my brethren at Matthews."
