Billy”s Followup Testimony

August 31, 2011

SOS staff had opportunity to present the ministry at a large church in Brandon, FL. When
greeting people as they came in, Carolyn said, “Hello” to a lady and ask if she
had ever seen the “3 Things God Can Not Do”.

The lady replied, “Yes, I was at a yard sale in Plant City, FL,  last spring and a man
asked my husband and me if we were 50, 75 or 100% sure we would go to Heaven if we died
that day.”

“I said, Yes, but my husband, Billy, said he was not sure. I was shocked.”

This wife did not want  Billy to stay, “You are sure, come on I want to shop”, she said.

Billy said, “No, I want to be sure.”

Both of them sat down and Tom led that man to the Lord that day in Plant City.

Back to the event in Brandon. Carolyn called Tom over and reminded him of the salvation
of Billy. He did remember and then asked if Billy was with her.

She called Billy over and there was a happy reunion in that foyer. Tom asked Billy,
“Are you 50, 75 or 100% sure if you died today you would go to Heaven?”

A huge smile came on Billy’s face, “I am 100% sure ever since that day in Plant
City.”

Sometimes people say that Event Evangelism does not work, because it is too easy, but
testimonies like Billy’s prove that God does save souls at events. SOS goes to events to compel people to come into the family of God.

Luk 14:23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel themto come in, that my house may be filled.

3 new opportunities for SOS

August 19, 2011

God has sent 3 wonderful opportunities for SOS to expand the ministry both in area and in cultural groups.

First was a call from a man in Hawaii, who invited Tom and Carolyn Curtis to travel there to teach a church, workers at a homeless ministry and a Christian college how to witness using the “3 Things God Can Not Do”. This opportunity is awsome because people from all over the world come into this Hawaiian port weekly. This trip will take place soon.

The second person God brought to the ministry is an African American woman who has already been through leadership training and is taking SOS to African American churches in the USA. Her first event with her trained workers is in the state of Kentucky, within the next month.

The third person is a Mesianic Jew who is working at secular colleges to bring young Jewish men and women to the Mesiah, Jesus Christ. He is working with a Rabbi to get a display board that will use Old covenant symbols and Old Testement verses to direct a Jewish person to the display board without being offensive to them. This is the most challenging of the 3.

“The Lord……, is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9

Praise the Lord for these new opportunities.

78 Saved at Community Event

August 15, 2011

Thank you for your prayers for Saturday, August 13. God gave a great harvest.  Families came to the YMCA Camp in Riverview, FL to get back to school backpacks for their children. SOS was invited to participate in this event and several volunteers and staff were able to work this 4 hour event.

78 people were saved and now SOS is in the process of following up on them to make sure they get a Bible study and an opportunity to fellowship in a local church.

Praise the Lord for His faithfulness, for dedicated SOS workers and for the many souls that were saved.

RV problems

August 11, 2011

This week Tom and Carolyn Curtis were getting ready to go to a church, about 200 miles away, to participate in a soul winning event. Their motor home, a 1997 class A was running just fine when Tom tested it last week. When he tried to start it to get ready to go, you guessed it. Totally dead.

Called an RV mechanic, who came out in the pouring rain but he could not do the repairs until it gets towed to the shop sometime next week. It is the fuel pump. The whole gas tank has to be removed to replace the pump.

As traveling sometimes only means a one or two night stay, SOS could use a smaller RV. If you know of anyone who has a class B or C they would like to donate to the ministry it would be greatly appreciated and used for the glory of God.

There is a local event this weekend also that several of our trained people will work. Pray for Saturday August 13 that many souls will be saved.
