In Acts Chapter two, at the initial outpouring of the Holy Spirit and the accompanying speaking in tongues, a crowd came together asking, "what is this?" Peter answered that question and then in verse thirty-nine proclaimed, "The promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call." There are different kinds of tongues with different pur- poses. In Acts chapter two and again in chapter ten, one of the purposes of tongues was to give evidence of the Holy Spirit's working. In chapter two, one of the reasons was as a sign to unbelievers. (See I Cor. 14:22) Three thousand were saved when they heard them speaking in various languages. Not all tongue speaking Christians will have the same ministry. (See I Cor. Chapter 12) It is unlikely that the aver- age Christian will use tongues as a sign to unbeliev- ers, or as a means of communicating a message to people. Nevertheless, the relationship of any Chris- tian with his Lord could be greatly enhanced by the anointing of the Spirit to express himself to the Lord in tongues. (See I Cor. 14:2) If you are a Christian, "The promise is unto you." skills relate to the role of a cooperative board mem- ber. These directors also attended classes concern- ing current political issues affecting rural co-ops, as well as other governance instruction.
