Following excerpt from 54% into God's Double Agent by Bob Fu

. . . . As we all settled back into our seats, Pastor Ronny continued to read where he had left off. “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure” (HEB 6:19 NIV).

Just as the words were coming out of his mouth, I felt a breeze on my face, looked up, and was surprised that no windows had been opened. My co-workers looked up from their notes as well. Suddenly a very strong wind, like you might feel while standing by an ocean, filled that Beijing apartment.

. . . . Though I’d read about the Spirit of God in the Bible, I’d never felt it—literally and physically—as I did on that day.

As the wind whipped around us, we began praying aloud and crying out to God. People began speaking in what sounded like other languages, which was very much at odds with my solid Presbyterian training. As I called out to God, however, the Holy Spirit came upon me and I too spoke in tongues. A peace and comfort surrounded me, and I was filled with unspeakable joy.

After the training, we were filled with boldness and courage. We worshiped the same God as the ancient Israelites, the apostle Paul, Wang Mingdau, and Billy Graham. And this same, unchanging, eternal God equipped us to spread the gospel throughout China.
