Thank the Lord for your friends. Some people think they have few friends, some have many friends.

A friend is someone who loves you in any circumstance. They laugh with you when you are happy and cry with you when you are sad, they accept you with all your faults and if you disagree they will come to an agreement even if it is to disagree agreeably. Sometimes a friend will disappoint you but they are still there for you when you need them.

 There is one true friend that is always with you and that is Jesus. For the Christian He is the closest friend you will ever have and he never disappoints you. He listens to every prayer and has the power to answer. He comforts when you are hurting or sick. He is with you in your joys and in your sorrow. 24/7 He is there.

We are thankful for our friends here on earth but most thankful for Jesus who is ever present in our lives.

Proverbs 17:17 A friend loveth at all times,

Hebrews 13:5  Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Usually on a holiday like Thanksgiving families get together to eat and have fellowship. Some families are very small and some families are huge with many relatives.

Families are a blessing. They are not perfect but the imperfections make each one unique. At this time of year thank God for your family. If they are live close to you you are especially blessed. If they are far away take time to pray for them today. Maybe they have passed on to Heaven and you can still be thankful for the time you had with them.

If you have unsaved relatives pray for them and do not give up. I know a daughter who prayed for her parents for over 30 years and both parents were saved just weeks before they died. God is faithful and always good.

1 Corinthians 1:9  God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

Everyone who is saved has a different testimony. Some were saved as a small child through the influence  of parents, grandparents or a godly Sunday  School teacher or bus worker. They really do not know what it is like to be in the world as sinners and have the most time to serve the Lord.

Others lived a life of sin and came to know Jesus after they came to the end of their rope and felt hopeless and had no place to turn. Maybe a Christian handed them a Bible tract and witnessed to them, or they went into a mission for food and a warm bed, and still others met an SOS Events worker at an event. These people are so thankful to be out of a life of sin and many want to tell others of their wonderful Savior.

There is a group of people who lived a good life, went to church, tithed, were moral, and did not commit any terrible sin. This group is the hardest to reach for Christ because they think they are good enough to to get to Heaven, but they realized they needed to be saved.

Every category of Christian falls into one of these groups, all are sinners in need of a Savior. If you are saved you can be thankful for your salvation. This is the greatest blessing in your life no matter if you are rich or poor, male or female, young or old. Today join with us in thanking God for your salvation.

Ephesians 12-14 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

Continuing the blessing we at SOS Events for which we are thankful. The churches that preach the gospel are a great blessing. There are many churches who patner with the ministry and use the 3 Things methods to reach the lost.

If you have a good church then join with us in thanking the Lord for your church and attend as often as you can. Pray for your Pastor today as he brings the message. Also, for the many people who cannot get to church we are thankful for the preachers who get the message out through TV, radio and Internet.

Hebrews 10:25  Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

God’s Great Love

November 21, 2015

Thanksgiving is less than a week away and it is a good time to think about how wonderful God has been in our lives. Everyday through Thanksgiving we will focus on one of  His special blessings.

The greatest thing we can give God thanks for is sending His Son, Jesus, to die on the cross that we can have eternal life. Thank you Father for your wonderful love.

John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Answered Prayer Plus

November 20, 2015

I needed a glass insert for my microwave as it had gotten broken. Guests are coming and it was needed right away. No time to order one from the manufacturing company. What to do? Pray and ask for wisdom to find one.

Lighthouse, a local thrift store, came to mind when I prayed. When I entered the store, the first thing I saw was Tom, one of SOS Events workers, with a 3 Things God Can Not Do display board witnessing to people. He was talking and I did not want to interrupt so I asked a store worker for help to find my insert. There was only one in the store and she pointed it out to me. These inserts are hard to find and sell out immediately she told me.

Now Tom was not busy so I stopped to talk to him. Noticing that his display board could use some repair, I went to the car for a replacement that we had in the trunk for another event but had not needed. When I returned with the new display, Tom was talking to a lady who was interested in SOS Events. We exchanged information and a new opportunity for SOS Events to go to a children’s home where the woman worked, to speak and teach young people about Jesus.

An appointed time. Had I not listened to that still small voice and gone to Lighthouse I would have missed a great opportunity for SOS Events.

Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Today’s Teens

November 19, 2015

When some teenagers are in the news for bad behavior there are many who love the Lord and faithfully serve Him. These three young girls, Julianna, Beka and Hailey come after school a few days a week to work in the SOS office and they are a great blessing to the ministry.

Julianna is the most recent office worker. She is a college student attending school close to the home office. She is learning how to record the decisions and get the information into the computer so the new converts will get Bible studies. She will also be doing many other tasks like working on the various printing machines to get supplies ready for SOS displays and events.

Beka has been working in the office since she was in 8th grade and has been a great assistant to Diana, our Office Manager. She is a senior in high school and will be off to college next year so she is now training the other girls to do what she usually does. Beka is a soul winner also. She works at some events like the Strawberry Festival every year. She has also helped with a few trainings.

Hailey attends school with Beka. She is also a new worker with SOS Events. Her job is to work on whatever is needed to supply materials for the ministry. Bagging tracts, cutting decision slips, laminating materials for soul winning and other things that help to keep things running smoothly in a busy growing ministry.

Keep these girls in your prayers. They live at a time in their lives where they are making decisions that will determine their future and trials and temptations are ever present in this world. The staff at SOS Events are blessed to have them and privileged to teach them skills and give them experience that will be useful to them in the future.

1 Timothy 4:12  Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.


Weep for Your Country

November 18, 2015

“Our country’s in great need of a spiritual awakening. There have been times that I’ve wept as I’ve gone from city to city and I’ve seen how far people have wandered from God.” Billy Graham

It is time Christians look around and weep and pray for their country. There are many people from countries other than America who read this blog, and at SOS Events we are thankful for each one who takes the time to read and follow. Today we did not limit the burden for the USA only but for every nation in the world. 

Christian, the best thing you can do for your country is to pray and tell everyone you can about Jesus and His love. We can make a change in lives, one soul at a time.

Luke 19:41  And when he (Jesus) was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,

Sharing the Gospel

November 17, 2015

In this picture Tom Curtis, founder of SOS Events, is witnessing to his home health care nurse. He is holding the small ” 3 Things God Can Not Do” display board.

Tom is recovering from surgery but never misses an opportunity to share the gospel. If every Christian would be even half as dedicated to telling others as Tom, many more souls would come to know the Lord.

Romans 1:16  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

I Love to Tell the Story

November 16, 2015

     A young girl, Katherine Hankey, who devoted her life to Sunday school work fell seriously ill at age 30.
       During her convalescence, in the year 1866, she wrote a long poem which contains the words of this hymn:

I Love to Tell the Story

(1) I love to tell the story Of unseen things above,

Of Jesus and His glory, Of Jesus and His love;

I love to tell the story- Because I know ’tis true,

It satisfies my longings As nothing else can do.


I love to tell the story!

Twill be my theme in glory-

To tell the old, old story

Of Jesus and His love.

(2) I love to tell the story- More wonderful it seems

Than all the golden fancies Of all our golden dreams;

I love to tell the story- It did so much for me,

And that is just the reason- I tell it now to Thee.

(3) I love to tell the story- ‘Tis pleasant to repeat

What seems, each time I tell it, More wonderfully sweet;

I love to tell the story- For some have never heard

The message of salavtion From God’s own holy word.

(4) I love to tell the story- For those who know it best

Seem hungering and thirsting To hear it like the rest;

And when in scenes of glory I sing the new, new song,
‘Twill be the old, old story That I have loved so long.”

Every Christian should love to tell about Jesus. That is the reason SOS Events ministry was founded. To tell others how to be saved and to teach Christians how to tell in a simple non confrontational way.

Acts 11:14  Who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved.
