I am so saddened to hear this news of Matt. Matt has been our biggest angel for our service work here for the indigenous people of the Peruvian Andes. He was truly an amazing, beautiful, unique, intelligent and highly compassionate and wise person. I have been so deeply grateful for him over all this time, and I am so glad I had expressed that appreciation for all his love and support repeatedly over this time. How much he was loved and appreciated, and how much he helped us, in challenging times when I literally have no idea how we could possibly have made it through without his support. He was one of the kindest people I have ever known. I am going to take today to send prayers of love and gratitude, that he may be surrounded by angels, and rise peacefully in his transition. I will never forget him. -David Reid
