Peter and Janet Van Hierdan are friends we've known for the past nine years. We met under rather unusual circumstances during a tour of the National Cemetery in Washington, DC. Peter was walking in front of us, engaged in an animated discussion with a Canadian friend.
Earlier this past week, I had an experience that has been an eye-opener. Some sixty years have gone by since I was first baptized in the Holy Spirit. On the night that I was baptized in the Holy Spirit and began to speak in tongues, it was nearly four hours before I could speak a word in English.
We were doing a bit of reminiscing in the past few days about some of the rather humorous events of our childhoods and I was sharing with folks an event that took place in the winter of 1947 in Nome, Alaska.
Ever have the Lord spring surprises on you? Ever have Him provide unusual favor in circumstances where it might not be likely? Well, sometimes it's just really cool to see God perform quickly and in unusual ways to our requests.
