A man sat down with me and explained to me the plan of salvation and I was baptized in a local creek in the name of Jesus Christ and in August 1973 I had fasted four days and when I went to church. I knelt down to pray and the Lord spoke to me and said, "Get up and have these two men pray for you; I am going to give you the Holy Ghost." the two men were the pastor and a visiting minister they laid hands on me and God filled me with the Holy Ghost speaking in a language through my own mouth that I did not understand. Later I understood through reading the book of acts that this is what took place in the early church and it was how people were able to distinguish when someone received the baptism. In Acts 10 the Jews knew that the gentiles had received the Holy Ghost because they heard them speaking in other tongues as the Spirit of God gave the utterance. Since that time God has delivered me out of the hand of all my enemies and all those that wished me harm. Also He has provided all that I need to survive this life Thanks be to God.
