I spoke in tongues and knew I had received God's Spirit

And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Acts 2:4

I had no interest in God and by the age of 15 had decided I was quite happy with the idea that once you are dead that's it, there is no more to the story. At this time my sister and I travelled to the UK to spend three weeks with our dad who had lived overseas since I was a child. He was a spirit-filled Christian and my sister and I were dreading the "Bible bashing" we were going to get. Instead we heard amazing stories of people being healed miraculously, and we read in the Bible that the Lord was returning for those who had followed his word. The real miracle was that both my sister and I were completely convicted and left the UK knowing that we needed to repent, be baptised and receive the Holy Spirit before the Lord’s return.

Our whole family started attending the Revival Fellowship and after a lot of seeking in prayer I spoke in tongues and knew this was evidence I had received God’s Spirit. 19 years later and not only do I know I have salvation but the Lord has looked after me and my family and blessed our lives abundantly.
