Pentecost Sunday

Acts 2:1-11

My translation:

The apostles and other new believers were together on the day of Pentecost in the same place. (This was about 7 weeks after Jesus' resurrection from the dead). Suddenly a strong wind came from the sky (heaven) and moved around them where they were sitting. They saw flames of fire which touched each one of them. As soon as this happened they were filled with the Holy Spirit and were able to speak or understand other languages as if it was their own and they were all able to understand one another. They knew this was a gift from the Holy Spirit because prior to that, they could not understand each other as they were all from different regions and did not speak the same.
