Needs For SOS Events

Needs For The Ministry


SOS had a great little older GMC truck which was used for many things around the property. Picking up supplies, running errands, hauling trash, etc. As Tom was working getting ready for Riegel’s to stay in the motor home, the truck, which was parked on a small hill started to roll toward the motor home. Tom tried to stop it but could not get the door open. Thankfully the truck missed the motor home and Tom was not hurt. The truck needs to be repaired or replaced. The original cost was only $1200. If we could find another for that price it would be wonderful. If you have a truck (small) you would like to donate or would like to contribute to one we could purchase the Lord would bless you.

27 Saved Easter Egg Drop

SOS staff had the privilege of setting up the “Three Things GOD Can Not Do” display at an Easter Egg Drop in Plant City, FL the Saturday before Easter. Over 1500 people came to a field where a helicopter dropped thousands of plastic eggs filled with candy for the children. SOS saw 27 saved at this event. Several were adults.

Strawberry Festival 2008

240 Decisions


2008 Strawberry Festival is now completed.

240 people made decisions for Christ. We are so thankful for each person. The oldest was a lady 88 years old and the youngest was 6.

One exciting thing happened with two young boys who came in the booth to be saved. As Tom was filling out the card (we get name, address, age, phone # and a short testimony from each person who makes a decision) the 2 boys came back, each one holding the arm of their mother. One of the boys actually pushed his mother into a chair so Tom could tell her and their father how to get to Heaven. Both Mom & Dad received Christ and what a joyful time that was for this family of 4.

Ten churches participated in the 11 day event. 74 Christians who were trained by




staff led their very first soul to the Lord. The Pastor of one of the churches made the comment that he was so happy for the 43 souls saved the day his church worked, but even more important, he saw many of his church members win people to the Lord for the 1st time. Now that his people know how to witness they will continue to see many souls saved every week.
