Gift Of Speaking To Someone In Their Language

The deliverance of a demon possessed woman opened the way for the establishment of a church.

Following excerpt from 72% into New Testament Fire In The Philippines by Jim Montgomery

The opportunity to start an outstation there came when a demon-possessed woman was freed.

The missionary, Mrs. Thompson, was traveling in the area with a companion when they entered a home where the demon-possessed woman lived. They found her chained to the floor. When they came in, she tried to tear off her clothes and danced around the room as far as the chain would allow. Mrs. Thompson tried to talk to her through an interpreter, but she could not understand Visayan.

“Why don’t you try speaking to her in tongues?” her companion said. She did and the demon-possessed woman recognized it as her native mountain language. Mrs. Thompson told her she needed Christ and the woman accepted the Lord. Immediately she was quiet and she has been normal ever since.

This sign opened the way for the beginning of the outstation. Mrs. Europa continued working there for six months during which time 76 accepted Christ and became faithful members. Many others made a public profession of belief in Christ. Some were healed and some had an experience with the Holy Spirit similar to Mrs. Europa’s. She taught the adults here while her companion from the school worked with the children. When they left after six months, a fulltime worker was sent and the Coronon church is still thriving.
