God Cares For You

August 22, 2014

“God will accept broken hearts – but you must give Him all the pieces!”
Saying on a church sign.

1 Peter 5:7
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Tracts Are Important

August 21, 2014

“When preaching and private talk are not available, you need to have a tract ready….Get good striking tracts, or none at all. But a touching gospel tract may be the seed of eternal life. Therefore, do not go out without your tracts.”
Charles Spurgeon
Are you in the habit of handing out tracts? Is it important? YES!
I felt my life was worthless, no one loved me and I decided to end my life by walking into Niagara Falls.
That morning I met with my boss, to finalize the work from the day before. He sensed that I was upset and prayed for me. As I was leaving he gave me a book and a tract.
I sat by the Falls, getting courage to jump in, and decided to read that tract.
It saved my life in two ways. I sincerely prayed the prayer on the back of that tract and immediately my life was changed. Jesus became my Savior on that day over 50 years ago.
God has used me in many ways since then. I now always have tracts in my purse, in the car available to give to someone. Carolyn Curtis
SOS Events tracts are attractive and simple. Check out the bookstore on our homepage.
Just a reminder if you have a need for prayer, call Tom 813-784-8242.

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

Pastor’s Phone Call

August 20, 2014

Tom had a cap come off his tooth and we had to make an unexpected dentist appointment. I was not too happy about going because it was the wrong time of day, quite a distance away and the traffic would be heavy. God had an appointment for us we did not know about.
On the rear window of our car is a sign that says, ” DO YOU KNOW THE 3 THINGS GOD CANNOT DO?” With our phone number.
On the way home from the dentist, our cell phone rang.
The man asked, “Can you tell me what are the “3 Things God Cannot Do?”
I answered him, 1. God can not lie. 2. God cannot change 3. God cannot let anyone into Heaven unless he is born again.”
Then I asked, “Are you 50, 75, or 100% sure if you died today you would go to Heaven?”
He was 100% sure. As the conversation continued he told me he is a pastor of a Spanish church, and was so excited about SOS Events ministry. He wants more information about SOS and we are excited because we need Spanish speaking people to help in events to spread the gospel.
Once again God showed me to be obedient to Him. He has plans for us that sometimes causes inconvenience, but if we trust Him, He brings a blessing.

1 Thessalonians 3:11
Now God himself and our Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way unto you.

Back to School

August 19, 2014

Life changes as the time to go back to school is here for much of the USA. Little children go to school for the first time, grade school and middle school kids are excited to renew friendships. High school students wonder what this year will bring for them. College students are making decisions that will determine their future. Teachers are looking forward to a new school year, hoping to be a good influence on their students lives.
Parents and grandparents watch and see their children getting older and hopefully wiser. We pray that all will have a great year, a time to study and get knowledge.
Christians no matter what age, are given advice from the Bible on how to obtain knowledge and wisdom. Whatever our stage of life, our year can be a time of going to “school” also. Think about the following verse today and pray for a year that will make us wiser and more obedient to our Savior.

2 Timothy 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Prayer Line

August 18, 2014

Phone ringing in the night is a frightening sound to me as usually it means bad news and something has happened to someone in our family.
Tom woke me out of a sound sleep yesterday, “Your phone is ringing,” he said. I went to get the phone, thinking the worst, but it was his phone ringing.
He answered and it was a lady needing prayer. 4:30 am is an odd time to call a prayer line but this woman, from across the country, really needed someone to listen, hear her prayer request and pray with her.
We are thankful for the opportunity to be used of The Lord to pray for people in need.
The prayer line is open. If you call and Tom does not answer immediately, he will get back to you as soon as possible. Leave your name, phone number and a short request. Call Tom 813-784-8242.

Acts 6:4
But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.

Faith

August 17, 2014

“I prayed for Faith, and thought that some day Faith would come down and strike me like lightning. But Faith did not seem to come. One day I read in the tenth chapter of Romans, ‘Now Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God’. I had closed my Bible, and prayed for Faith. I now opened my Bible, and began to study, and Faith has been growing ever since. “
D. L. Moody

Romans 10:17
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Exciting Email

August 16, 2014

An email came into the SOS Events office about a boy who was at one of our recent events. His Mother stated how happy she is that her son is getting the Bible lessons. Her two daughters were not at the event but could they receive the Bible lessons?
They were put on the list and now the whole family has an opportunity to be saved.
Follow up is important. All converts are sent an age appropriate Bible lesson and their names go to a local Bible believing church, if one is in their area.
Every person that makes a decision is on a prayer list and they are prayed for regularly.
If you, a family member or a friend needs prayer, email Tom: tom@sosevents.org.

Fear of Storm

August 15, 2014

20140815-062558-23158791.jpg
Baby, our little chihuahua, is terrified of thunder. Last night there was a thunder storm that was extremely loud. Baby sleeps in a crate by our bed and usually loves her bed and has no problem sleeping. But when the thunder got loud she started to whimper in fear. Finally, I got up and put her in our bed. Immediately, she curled up and was sound asleep, knowing she was protected by her master.
We have a Protecter, The Lord Jesus, who is waiting to calm our fears in the storms of our life. When fear overtakes us we can trust Him to bring us through the storm in peace and safety.

Hebrews 13:6
So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
