"The reason I went on the [Uganda Mission] trip was that I didn't want my wife to go 'alone' and I felt it would be a good experience for us. Unfortunately, my decision to go to Uganda was based on fear and insecurities. However, the Lord had a plan to change me and my marriage on this trip. Within a few days of arriving, I could feel the Lord pulling at my heart-strings. God was using the people of Uganda to soften my heart that had been hardened over many years.
The change in me was overwhelming my wife, I felt like I was smothering her but I couldn't help myself! I thought this change in me was temporary and it would wear off eventually. But it didn't. Since then, our marriage has thrived beyond all expectations. And yesterday my oldest daughter, asked me what happened to me in Uganda, she told me that I am much "nicer" to Mama now.
Before we arrived in Uganda, Matt told us that we may not make any difference to the people we meet and minister to, but the difference and changes would be in ourselves. He could not have been more right. God created a change in me that will benefit my marriage and family forever. I am grateful that the Lord gave me the courage to go to Uganda and the faith to believe that He would bless us!"
"Going to Uganda was a step of faith, I had not met the team in person prior to our travels, and I was traveling there alone. But God knew, and he prepared such a wonderful team of people who embraced each other - different personalities & life experiences - and we had loads of fun.
One month before our trip, the Lord gave me a dream. He showed me that I thought I was an introvert, but I was actually afraid of rejection, and my trip to Africa was going to be a time of learning to be myself.
We ministered at many churches around Uganda, and while there Matt Young had each of us involved in ways we hadn’t experienced before. I saw people healed and set free from oppression as we prayed for them, and I was able to preach and share prophetic words for people, too. One big realization for me was that I often hear God’s voice as a ‘knowing.’ It felt like permission to stop second guessing myself so much.
The largest impact for me was having a time of nearly two weeks with freedom to be myself. Our moments as a team were spent talking, praying and getting to know one another. This set a space for me to feel safe and express myself freely without fear of what people might think of me. I laughed, danced and cried, and came home from the trip with new joy and sense of freedom. God told me in my dream that a fear of rejection was clamming me up, and I praise Him that Uganda was a special place for me to learn to let go and experience who I am created to be."
"I'd love to share a testimony about an experience I've recently had. Since watching one of Matt's teachings on entering heaven, I've been practicing entering heaven and praying from my mountain. A few weeks ago while I was out for a walk and praying in the Spirit, l saw with my eyes open, a portal open and in front of me was my mountain! I could see both the natural around me and my mountain. It was such a cool and encouraging experience and my heart was overflowing with love from my daddy.
After that happened I had gone for Sozo prayer ministry and a gentleman in my prayer session told me about a picture God had given him prior to my session, which as he described it was my mountain! I'm excited to keep pressing into Heaven and learning how to stay there while navigating through my every day!"

"Matt really helped me to walk by faith in the seer realm. I always knew i had a prophetic gift but was afraid to test it on people in case I was wrong and looked like a complete idiot. Lol. It turns out I'm quite good at it. I have stepped out more than 10 times and I would say 80 percent of my words are correct. I could not have done this without Matt's joyful, humorous and very real authentic guidance. He is an incredible teacher and his fun loving essence he gives off really helps to be free in stepping out and practicing walking by faith.
Matt really is a generous person. My wife and I couldn't pay for our online school one month and he foresaw this in the spirit and pre-organised it to be paid for us. We were so blown away that it unlocked a giving nature in our own hearts. We have not even met Matt in person; for someone to do that for us having not met us says a lot. We then gave to help someone else out on the online school and were blessed super abundantly that month - it was incredible.
Recently, I asked Matt to pray for my finances. I was discouraged and not understanding why we were hitting a season of lack. He said to me, "I prayed last night that you would get 5 new clients." Well, I picked up 4 new clients and 5 new audio books at my voice over studio one week later. GET MATT TO PRAY OVER YOUR FINANCES, lol!"
"I got to know Pastor Matt by doing his online prophetic school and inviting someone I didn’t personally know to my country was a big challenge for me. It turned out that it changed my life, I received deep healing, got to experience lots of miracles in front of my eyes, saw people getting deeply touched and set free by God, people got activated in the seer gift and met Jesus in person through heavenly visions. Matt gave me this father love and my heart opened to experience the father heart of God. I’m so thankful for how he pours into my life and other peoples lives. You are a dad, friend and became a brother to me and I’m so thankful God connected us. My cheeks still hurt from so much laughs!!"
