Converted from Lutheran to Pentecost

In 1991 I heard about the need to be born again from a fellow student. It alarmed me that the Bible was so clear in defining repentance, baptism by full immersion in water and baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
I grappled with this for several weeks because it made so much sense, however it was in direct conflict with the teaching I had received in the Lutheran church.
Eventually I decided that the only way I could confirm that this was the truth was to approach God, who cannot lie. So I attended a house meeting with the intention of being baptised and to seek God for the Holy Spirit.
I was baptised that evening and shortly after received the Holy Spirit, instantly speaking in tongues as the Bible describes.
From that moment I had the realisation that this was the truth and that I had had an experience with the God of the Bible.
Since then I have experienced more blessings and miracles and a deeper understanding of the scriptures. I was married to Jayne in April 2008 and subsequently, we were blessed with the birth of our daughter, Arianna. Arianna’s early hearing tests indicated no response from one of her ears so we decided to pray for her and follow up tests proved normal for both ears.
Later, she contracted conjunctivitis, which did not respond to the commonly prescribed treatments so after some months we decided to take her to a specialist eye hospital with the thought that surgical intervention may be necessary. However, at the Sunday meeting the church prayed for her and the condition disappeared and has not returned since.
I thank God for His Spirit and truth that is ever present in my life and in the life of my family.

Re: Converted from Lutheran to Pentecost

Amen! I'm curious if you're close to a Pentecostal congregation down there? How prolific are they?
