Another Special Life in Christ
These testimony lives are not stories of "role models". Jesus is the
These are lives wonderfully touched & changed by Jesus!

In 2004 Matt lost and regained his UFC title;
however, it was the time sandwiched between those two fights that brought about the greatest
changes in his life!
About the time of Matt’s loss to BJ Penn, he started attending church
with his long-time friend and fiancé, Audra Moore. Church was not new to Matt, but it had
been some time since he attended on a regular basis. You see, he and his brother had grown up
going to church with their mother, but by the time high school came around their attendance
became nonexistent. At nearly the same time, Mark and his wife Emily began looking for a
church in which to raise their family. Though unplanned by them, both brothers found
themselves attending the same church. Shortly thereafter, Mark Hughes surrendered his life to
Jesus and was baptized.
Matt married Audra on July 9th and was intently seeking answers to
many spiritual questions. During a Texas Hold ‘Em game at the family farm, he was asked if he
would like to help out on a youth group mission trip to a Mexican orphanage named Rancho 3M.
He and his brother both committed that night to going, although Matt later confessed his
intentions of going were not because of God, but rather because he likes hard work, he likes
helping people and enjoys hanging out with some of his new church friends. Needless to say,
God had other plans.

acceptance of Jesus as your savior. Are you tired of life as it now is for you? He will
accept you just as you are right this second! Consider accepting Jesus now
