Another Special Life in Christ
These testimony lives are not stories of "role models". Jesus is the
These are lives wonderfully touched & changed by Jesus!
Ambulance sirens and "speaking in
Prior to Dec. of 1999, I was very skeptical of the
authenticity of Christians "speaking in tongues". Then, a Christian friend since 1993...she
and her husband being strong, college-educated, "normal" Baptist Christians...cautiously and
vulnerably told a small group of us how she began speaking in tongues.
The "gift" (I
Corinthians 12:10) of tongues came upon her for the first time at home one evening at about
age 40, many years after becoming a Jesus believer. An ambulance came by with siren whining,
and my friend had an irresistible urge to verbalize; and she went to the privacy of her
bedroom. She couldn't understand the language that flowed forth, but had the distinct
impression that it represented a ministry of prayer for the person(s) the ambulance was
carrying...that such patients may not have anyone to pray for them prior to notification of
family or friends.
This urge and verbal activity tended to occur each time that she heard the
ambulance siren (they lived near a hospital with emergency room). She told us that she once
overheard an East Indian individual speaking her native tongue, and that this sounded
somewhat like the speaking in tongues language that came forth from herself. Some years
later, they bought a home in another location. About to move to the new residence, her heart
sank when she realized that the new home was nowhere near any hospital...would her move be
disobedient to her Spirit-given ministry? Shortly after moving, she realized that the
ambulance episodes had significantly increased because the new home was near a cross-town
beltway over which many emergency vehicles sped to four different hospitals. Having been
faithful to what the Spirit had given her, the move had actually increased her ministry in
behalf of accident victims who may have no one to pray for them.
Another friend, one of the women who works in our lab, tells me
that she is in a church and has witnessed "tongues" & that it is real. She loaned me her
fascinating book published years ago by Pyramid books, With Other Tongues by John L.
Sherrill...(his testimony, HERE) recounting his investigation of the phenomenon of "tongues".

acceptance of Jesus as your savior. Are you tired of life as it now is for you? He will
accept you just as you are right this second! Consider accepting Jesus now
