Matt Interviews, Former Atheist, Jacob


Last month we shared how Matt’s been engaging with Atheist’s on campus. Well, this month, he got to interview and film Jacob, who left Atheism for Christ this past January at UC Irvine.

Jacob hated Christians and felt that they were just believing a lie. Then his sister was in a serious car accident which made him think about the possibilities of another realm.

Around this same time, some guys in his hall who were believers invited him to live with them. It was there he saw how they really lived out their faith. On Jan 17, 2013 Jacob heard the gospel for the first time from his roommate Aaron and put his faith in Christ.
Just two months later, Jacob went on his first mission trip during Spring Break to South Africa. The first person he shared the gospel with came to Christ! Since then Jacob has seen his own life change and those around him as he continues to reach out to co-workers and classmates with the gospel.

Jacob shared his testimony this past month at our regional Vision Dinner. Afterward, Matt was able to drive him home and ask how he’d suggest we reach out to Atheists, having been one. He also got to discuss more deeply with Jacob how he can continue to grow in his faith. Praise God that Matt was able to film this testimony as well as have some discipleship moments with Jacob!

Thank you for investing in us, and in return investing in this next generation. Lives are being changed!


·  Baby Melton should be coming any day! His due date is October 25th. Please pray that he will come on his own. The doctor says he is getting too big for Holly’s frame and he is not dropping. We are not wanting to induce or have a c-section unless it’s necessary.

·  Holly finished teaching her 5 week class on “The Art of Evangelism” and Matt is working on the finishing touches of the videos for the class so that it can be used for small groups. Please pray that this will go out and help disciple the churches in our country on how to effectively reach this generation with the gospel. (We will let you know when they are online for you to watch as well!)
