Bishop RJ Matthews Age, Family, and Marriage
Mathews comes from a Christian family. He was born on 2nd July 1984. His parents are staunch Christians who taught him the way of the Lord from a young. The teachings he got stirred a desire to pursue Jesus and as he did he became the person God designed him. One of his major breakthrough stories is his testimony about meeting his wife Prophetess Cycelia Denise Matthews.
If it was up to worldly standards, Matthews and Cycelia wouldn’t have been married. It took the intervention of the Holy Spirit to make them one in the eyes of God. The two met at Cycelia’s father’s church where Matthews was invited to preach in an ushers’ events. After the service, the two talked and had a good time together. Later, they met at another event where Cycelia was emceeing.
They started talking after the show and exchanged numbers afterward. The following weeks followed long hours of talking and chatting on the phone. Sadly, what they had started lasted for only three weeks. The love birds broke up because of something Cycelia had done. The break-up lasted 2 and a half years before they started talking again.
Eventually, they started talking and became close friends. Their relationship this time was mature and communication was clear between them. As they talked, they became close. One day, after God confirmed to him, Matthew proposed to Cyclelia in front of the Church. The two defied the odds that were against them during the talking stages and dating. As of 2022, the couple celebrated 16 years of marriage and 3 adorable children.
