Alan BI believed the Bible was a book of fairy tales
And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
It was in 1983 that I first heard the gospel faithfully preached. I didn’t believe in God and had no interest in the Bible, believing it to be a book of fairy tales. I was very happy with my life and I didn’t need a thing! Friends told me that their lives had been changed by God and that he could prove himself to me. Although sceptical at first, the more I heard about miracles, healings and the power of God, the more it intrigued me.
I decided to put God to the test and went along to a meeting in the local Revival Fellowship where I heard about God’s plan of salvation. I was baptised by immersion and a few days later I was filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak in tongues (a brand new language given to me from God).
At that instant my life changed completely because I knew that God was real and I understood that Jesus had died for me personally to give me a new way of life.
As I went along I could see God at work in people’s lives, blessing, healing and providing for them. What amazed me was that as we started living as Christians – taking our direction from the Bible – the same things started happening in our family.
