Just A Note From My Past
Six or seven years ago a girl from Uzbekistan was attending our church. She was a foreign exchange student who could speak broken English and was very hard to understand by almost everyone in our church. I'm not sure why, but I could understand her, maybe because I took the time to understand.
One night we went to a youth conference where a black preacher was going to be preaching and boy could that preacher preach. There was only one problem though, during a break the girl came up to me and said I don't understand anything the preacher is saying. I said Masha, if you can't understand just ask God to help you understand.
Soon we were back settled in our seats to hear the booming preacher. He had a "Preachin' Storm Goin' On'. as he said. Many kids went forward afterwards, many renewing and there were many saved. Masha had taken notes the entire service and seemingly could understand. Afterwards I asked her if she understood. She told me an amazing thing, she could hear the preacher just as clearly as if it were in her own language.
If I have had any experience at all with tongues that was the day. in the Bible the people could hear the preaching in their own language. A language that could be understood.
Correction: Last I heard she was attending a good church on a regular basis.
