LaTonya Matthews - Guest Speaker
Author, Silent No More
Lady LaTonya P. Matthews is a forty year old single mother of eight kids and a grandmother of nine. She was born in Dallas, TX and raised in Long Beach, California. At the age of seventeen, she returned home to Texas to fulfill a mission. She always knew that God had chosen her for a job she continued to run from. Just like Jonah, she tried to run. Every time she ran she noticed that she caused unnecessary storms in others’ lives. In 2000, she accepted the call and began her journey. It was never easy. It was a walk that only GOD Himself helped her through. He gave her the vision of Silent No More.

Silent No More is focused on helping not only young and older women but men as well. Because of the things she has endured, she is able to identify with ladies in these age groups, and men both young and old. Learn how to break the cycle of Abuse. Abuse is never ok, Being silent can eventually eat away at you like cancer. Lady Matthews is the kind of person that will give you the shirt off her back. If she has it, then you have it. GOD blessed her to go back to school and get a degree in Medical Assisting. Now she is back in school for her bachelor’s in communications. Over the years, Lady Matthews was able to open her home to people and families who needed a place to live. She truly has a burden for souls and it's her desire to see as many of GOD's people back in the kingdom as possible. Even if she just can help one soul find his or her way back, she will feel as though she has done what she has been called to do. She is a disciple at DMI in Red Oak TX under the leadership of Pastor Edward and First Lady Rogers. Where she is been equipped spiritually to fulfill the vision God gave her.

Her motto is, "Each one, reach one": When we reach back into our communities and grab at least one person that is lost, then we have a chance to save many, many more lost souls. We have been given the ability to save souls through Christ Jesus, one soul at a time."She's a willing vessel. Lady Matthews say she is a nobody trying to tell somebody, about the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
