Ten new souls added to The Kingdom of Heaven yesterday at the Plant City, Fl Flea Market. What a great blessing.
Last evening Diana and Tony Guliano, along with Alice Thomas had a training at a local Church and 20 people attended. Another blessing as more laborers have been added to God’s harvest field.
Many events take place in the busy fall season and there is always room for more workers. Today several volunteers will meet at the SOS Events home office to get materials ready for the upcoming events. The rewards for work done will be received when they get to heaven.
Matthew 25:23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

“Without communication there is no relationship.”
This quote is one of the things that a Pastor, whose name I have forgotten, preached many years ago that made a great difference in my life.
He was speaking about our relationship with God. Communication is a connection, a way to express thoughts, feelings and action to one another.
To have a relationship with God we MUST communicate. How? We talk to Him through prayer and He talks to us through His Word and the Holy Spirit. It has to be a regular thing. He desires us to come to Him daily for that true intimate relationship with him.
The same thing is true with our relationships with family and friends. If we do not keep communication active the relationship fades and can die.
If you are out of fellowship with God, He is waiting for your relationship to begin again. Pray and ask His forgiveness for your neglect and that wonderful joy of communication with God will be restored immediately.
Maybe there is someone that you haven’t communicated with in a long time. Today, there is no excuse with email, Facebook, Phone and all the modern ways we have to talk to our friends and family. You may not get an immediate response but do not give up. Those relationships can be mended or improved but not without communication.
Hebrews 13:15-16 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

“Don’t let the noise of the world drown out the peace of God’s Love.”
If you watch the news on TV, listen to the radio, or read the newspaper you know that the world is in chaos. The Bible tells us that we can have peace and joy no matter what the circumstance.
The secret of peace is to know God, read his word every day and trust him completely.
Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

October is the busiest time of year for SOS Events because there are so many events that take place.
Fall Festivals, Halloween, Talledega Races in Alabama, Harvest Hayride in New Jersey, Yard Sales and Craft Shows plus the regular weekly or monthly events that continue regularly. Our staff and workers would appreciate your prayers.
As you can see the opportunities for witnessing and soul winning are limitless. The Bible says the laborers are few. If you have a burden for lost souls you can get involved where you are. Go to the donate/contact page and give your information and note that you want to know more and you will have the opportunity to become a great witness for the Lord. The training is FREE.
Matthew 9:37-38 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

Are you positive or negative?
“Positive: thinking about the good qualities of someone or something: thinking that a good result will happen: hopeful or optimistic.” Webster’s dictionary
“Negative: thinking about the bad qualities of someone or something: thinking that a bad result will happen: not hopeful or optimistic.” Webster’s dictionary
We are Christians and should be positive not negative. The Bible says that we are the light of the world. A flashlight is a good example, put a battery in a flashlight negative to negative and we are still in the dark. BUT put that battery in negative to positive and we have light.
There is a man who has severe health problems but never complains. He is always positive and makes everyone around him positive. Christians and unbelievers like to be around him because he gives them hope. Usually the nonbelievers become believers because of his good attitude.
Be a positive influence in our dark world today.
Matthew 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

Adrian Rogers quote on the Bible.
“The Bible addresses one problem–sin. The Bible has one villain–Satan. The Bible has one hero–Jesus. The Bible has one purpose–to glorify God.”
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.

“The greatest ability is dependability.” Dr. Bob Jones
Sometimes being dependable is not easy. Weekly Flea Markets are a good example. Wake up really early to go and set up the display, weather can be a problem,(heat, cold, damp, humidity), waiting for that first person to talk to you. Maybe even rejection, 52 weeks a year. Sounds hard? It is until God steps in and brings the first person that has been waiting to hear the Gospel. Yesterday 12 souls came to the Lord at the Plant City Flea Market.
That is the reason dependability is so important. Alice, Randy, William are dependable and gladly go each week to that event. God will honor their dependability. He is the One who brings the souls, it is our responsibility to be faithful and dependable.
Jesus said in Matthew 25:21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

On Tuesdays the office staff of SOS Events has a short meeting to discuss the needs of the ministry and the personal prayer requests of the staff and others who may have called or emailed a prayer requests.
Yesterday, God answered two prayers within 3 hours of that meeting. Diana, our office manager, was concerned about her daughter Dana who has a busy schedule. Dana is in nursing school and has some tests scheduled for today and tomorrow. The concern was that the house Dana and her husband purchased did not close last week when it was scheduled and the closing kept getting changed. It seemed like it was going to interfere with Dana’s tests. Within two hours of the prayers in God’s perfect timing Dana called and the closing was before the day was out. Also, there were no classes yesterday. Perfect timing.
Tom, founder of SOS Events, has been praying for more opportunities to teach evangelism to students of all ages. The prayer request was brought before the Lord in our meeting and in the early afternoon a man, who Tom had only met briefly several years ago, came into the office and offered an opportunity to teach evangelism at a Bible Institute for the spring semester. There will be more about this awesome answer to prayer in the near future when the plans are finalized.
God answers prayer. He is there waiting for us to ask and delights in answering the prayers of His children.
Matthew 21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Quote by Adrian Rogers
“One nation under God, or one nation under greed?”
One of the problems of our nation is that we have replaced our worship of God into a nation that goes after riches. Sadly even many Christians have fallen into the trap.
Bigger houses, better cars, more money, fancy churches and the true worship of God is put aside because we don’t have time, we are too busy making money and trying to get ahead than to take time to read the Bible and pray everyday. If we want our nation to get back to God it has to start with each of us giving the Lord Jesus the time and worship He desires and deserves.
Psalms 33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
