Matayo’s father died when he was just a nine year old child. From then on he and his mother lived alone. In 2010 Matthieu went to the Mujumba, DRC literacy center where he studied for three years. He then went to the Imani Bible school. Today he is Pastor Matayo (Matthew) of the Sinai ka Lambo Church.
Besides preaching the Good News of Jesus Christ, he is a strong advocate of literacy and is leading the effort to build a literacy center on the church property. Bridge to Reading director Dr. James Kigamwa and founder Connie Schwein visited the center in August.
