I grew up from a religious family that had some knowledge about Christ but yet very far from salvation. I was taught about God through songs and a bible story book that my mother used to read for us as kids. I was introduced to a church that preached salvation by my brother and my sister who had also come to know about it through their friends. So I got saved at an early stage of 9 by simply responding to an altar call.
I developed an un common desire for God as a child and my prayer life seemed far greater above my age. One night, at the age of 9 still as I was praying from my bed, I started speaking strange tongues all of a sudden.It was awesome. But this didn’t continue with me till I asked God to restore it to me at the age of 16 which he did.
