I was brought up Catholic but…

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 was brought up Catholic so I always believed there was a "God" but that's as far as it went. I was christened and confirmed in the Catholic system but it wasn't until I was around 14 years old that I questioned whether God existed or not.

I was spoken to by Holly (now my wife) a year later and she told me about receiving the Holy Spirit. For some reason, I was not shocked about speaking in tongues but it actually sounded familiar.

I went along to a meeting where I heard the “spiritual gifts” for the first time ever. This impressed me along with the testimonies of God's power I heard at the meeting. A few weeks later I was baptised at Raumati Beach and two days later, I received the Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues as they did on the day of Pentecost.

The Lord has blessed me ever since. I have seen healings, provisions, and blessings in my family and my brothers and sisters. I'm so happy to be following the Lord and I am grateful that he's giving my family and me this amazing life.

Praise the Lord.
