Ray Mateo decided to make Jesus Lord of his life. A long time friend, Joel, “found” his long, lost friend while driving next to him on the highway. God had plans for Ray through this renewed friendship. Ray’s life had experienced lots of rough spots. He was needing something to make life have meaning. He started studying the Bible with his friend, Joel, and a few other men. He was amazed at what he read. Some things were hard to accept, but Ray didn’t run away. He prayed and struggled to understand what God wanted him to be and do. On April 22, he was baptized.
