What is the point of it?
What can be gained from a Speaking in Tongues event?
What can the person doing the Speaking expect from the other members of the church?
Is it a special even which is talked about in the church for weeks afterwards? Does it make a kind-of celebrity?

In the bible NT, Those who spoke in tongues were speaking foreign languages. Not mumbo jumbo as some try to say is right.
