When Fanny Crosby was only six weeks old, she developed an eye infection. The regular doctor was away and a traveling doctor use mustard plaster on the baby’s eyes. Fanny was blind from that time.
One year later her father died leaving her mother to take care of Fanny and herself.
Fanny’s grandmother took care of her and taught her about the world around her, especially the Bible.
Fanny did not consider herself handicapped by her blindness. She memorized much of the Bible at a young age. Went on to become an instructor at the School for the blind in New York City and later married one of her students.
She started to write songs when she was in her forties. And wrote over 9000
hymns many which are still sung by congregations all over the world.
Her most famous hymn, “Blessed Assurance,” is a personal testimony of her salvation.
Her hymns have stood the test of time, still loved by believers today. Hymns such as “Saved by Grace,” “Draw Me Nearer,” “Safe in the Arms of Jesus,” “All the Way My Savior Leads Me,” “To God Be the Glory,” “Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross,” and “I Am Thine, O Lord,” expressed Fanny’s deep devotion to her Savior.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Another terrorist attack. This time on our friends and neighbors to the north, Canada. Our prayers go up for them as they struggle to find out what happened.
There are Christians in every nation and God’s Word is still true, He says His people must humble themselves and seek His face. Christian in whatever nation you are in, this is a call to prayer.
We cannot be found sleeping. Watch, pray and stand against the evil Jihadists not only in our country but around the world.
2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

I believe I never was more acceptable to my Master than when I was standing to teach those hearers in the open fields? I now preach to ten times more people than I would if I had been confined to the churches.

God gives us the command to GO, not just go to church and think you have done your best to serve Him. There are many events in all areas that take place on a regular schedule that YOU could go and witness for Christ. Watch SOS training videos and then contact the office for more instructions on how to be a witness.
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Talladega NASCAR race was held over the weekend. The races are exciting but even more exhilarating is the decisions made with the SOS Events team in Alabama. Thirty decisions for Christ were recorded and decision cards turned in. Our team leader, Patty, stated that there were actually more people who prayed to receive The Lord but were in too much of a hurry to fill out a card. Also, several people were trained to work with SOS and they participated in the event. Any event can be turned into a soul winning opportunity. The Talladega Race was a first for SOS Events.
1 Peter 1:9
Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

A prominent Christian and friend of SOS Events went to visit a church and the Pastor introduced him and his wife. A woman sitting next to the wife turned and said, “If I knew you were someone important I would have talked to you.”
This is sad but true. Christian are you friendly to others when they are in your midst? The Bible tells us to be no respecter of persons.
Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers:for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
