An accident made me realise I needed to be right with God

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 in a Baptist church and decided I was getting nothing out of the church and stopped going. I started working with racehorses when I was 15-years-old and started smoking, drinking, and going to parties.

I had an accident – a horse flipped over on me. I had no recollection of this but it made me realise I could die at any time, and I knew I needed to be right with God.

I started reading my Bible again, and I was spoken to by a person in the Revival Fellowship who said I needed to be baptised, and to receive the Holy Spirit, with the evidence of speaking in tongues. I was living in a caravan at the time, and decided to put the Lord to the test and ask for the gift of the Holy Spirit, and the Lord gave it to me. I spoke in tongues straight away. The next night I was baptised by immersion. This was in 1998.

The Lord has always watched over me.
