Suddenly they heard a strong wind. It shook the house where they were waiting. It was the Holy Spirit sent from God. – Slide 2
The power of the Holy Spirit filled them all. They saw what looked like flames flickering over their heads and it felt that God was right there with them. – Slide 3
The flames were bright and danced in the air, but did not burn them. Their hearts were full of God’s love and they praised God. – Slide 4
Now Jesus’ friends could speak in any language without learning it! The Holy Spirit’s power made them brave too! They wanted everyone to know about Jesus! – Slide 5
