                   APPEARANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT                           



Teens Overcome by the Holy Spirit at Citgo Station

On March 29th 1998, we left Pensacola in two fifteen passenger vans, heading home to Tulsa, Oklahoma. We had just spent Spring Break at the Brownsville Revival. Except for six adults, all the passengers were teens. God had mightily touched every one of them.

The kids arose every morning to get in line at the revival at 5:00a.m. They were all so hungry for God. A large number of them had been praying every Friday night for revival in their schools for about two years. Driving home that night of the 29th, we got a call on our walkie talkie from van # 2. they said God had fallen in their van and they wanted to pull over and pray for the other van. We could hear them praying in the background.

Van # 1 pulled off the interstate at the Clarksville Arkansas exit. We pulled into a Citgo Gas Station. We pulled up at Citgo in front of the door. Van # 2 leaped out and flung open the doors of van # 1, laying hands on everyone.

The Holy Spirit fell on them! It was amazing! The began to weep, shake and tremble and fall on the ground. In 5 or 6 minutes they were all over the parking lot of Citgo. Some of them out cold on the pavement. This went on for 2 hours and 45 minutes. They repented, danced and shouted.

Someone driving by called the police. The police came. They talked to the manager of the Citgo and he said, “I'm not going to mess with the man upstairs, they can stay as long as they want, I was skeptical at first but now I can see "this is God!"

People driving up to get gas got nervous not knowing what was happening. Some of the kids witnessed to them. Before we left that night we all went into the station and laid hands on the Citgo manager. He said “I'll never be the same again". He said he could see "Jesus in the kids eyes, they were all so full of love.”

Most of these teens still have their fire and commitment to Christ. They are growing in him everyday. One of the girls gave a revival video to her principal to view and got permission to show it in the cafeteria. She showed an altar call with Charity singing, quickly stopped the video and gave a powerful altar call herself. The 30 kids there, at the public school came forward to repent and give their lives to Christ.

We are continuing to bring van loads of teens to the revival because of the wonderful fruit in their lives.

Thank you all, In Him!
