While out on the waterfront trail, I came across a cyclist sitting on the bench looking at the ocean. We began chatting and learned he is 63 yrs old and has 4 grand children and originally from Hong Kong.
He has lived in Victoria for 30 years. I shared how I arrived to Victoria, cycling across the US from coast to coast on my Cycling4Jesus trip 8 years ago.
He was very intrigued and then asked me why I became a Christian. I told him my testimony and how not long after, I received the Gift of Tongues as the evidence of the infilling/power of the Holy Spirit (God) living inside of me (Acts 2:1-4; Mark 16:15-18).
He was extremely interested. I asked him if he too would like to receive Jesus as his Lord and Saviour, and also receive the power of the Holy Spirit as in the day of Pentecost so that he too could hear God’s voice and know the plan God for his life.
He said yes he definitely would!! I wasn’t able to lay hands on him because of the Covid 19 restrictions, so we prayed together first, for his Salvation and then for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4).
At first there were groanings coming from his mouth but after a few minutes he received his full tongues language beautifully. The Lord gave me the interpretation saying that he has been waiting for him to come and that he has a mighty plan to enfold before him as he is obedient to seek him daily! Thank you Jesus! He was so excited as was I.
Please pray that he will grow in his personal relationship with Jesus, God will use him mightily, and for his family to also receive Salvation and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. Amen! Thank you friends!
