(R) Adam 20, U.S. Navy was Born Again/Saved by Jesus Christ Saturday. He has been in the Navy for 3 years, attended Chapel a few times & said he never heard the Gospel. The Lord had Adam’s heart prepared & receptive as he prayed in repentance. It was a blessing to be a share the Gospel with an active duty shipmate. Let’s pray for Adam to be a missionary aboard his ship & have the Gospel spread.

Glory to God

Several Pastors got “Little Display” boards at the conference we attended this past week. These boards are 81/2″ by 11″ and can easily be carried in a briefcase, backpack or luggage.
One of the Pastors is taking his to Jamaica next week, and several are using their displays for visitation in their home state.
We may never know here on earth how many people hear the gospel with SOS Events tracts, displays and soul winning tools the ministry provides, but we do know thar God is blessing and He gives the increase.
To God be the glory.

2 Corinthians 4:5-6
For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus ‘sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Too Busy?

June 27, 2014

“We are too busy to pray, and so we are too busy to have power. We have a great deal of activity, but we accomplish little; many services but few conversions; much machinery but few results.” ~R.A. Torrey
Most Christians fall into this category today, unfortunately. In our churches we see very few conversions, in ministry there are few people that are willing to spend even three or four hours a week or even a month to go to the marketplace to witness to the lost.
Someday we will be judged for what we have done for The Lord. Will we hear “Well done” or will our works be counted as wood hay and stubble and be cast into the fire?
When we stand before Him, will our excuse be, “I was too busy”?
The is always room for dedicated Christians to Serve Our Savior with SOS Events. All it takes is a email info@sosevents.org.

1 Corinthians 3:12-15
Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man’s work shall be made manifest:for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss:but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

Carolyn Curtis with 2 Hispanic men at the conference in St. Petersburg who are going to be trained to win the many Spanish people in the Florida area.
We are thankful for the interest in SOS by many of the conference attendees . One of the pastors is going to Micronesia next week and taking the “3 Things God Can Not Do” display board to win people to The Lord in that country.
Once again The Lord is increasing the outreach of SOS Events ministry around the world.

Luke 24:47
And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

Wait on The Lord

June 25, 2014

Psalms 27:14
Wait on the Lord:
be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart:wait, I say, on the Lord.
Sometimes it is hard to wait on the Lord for something we want or need. Tom Curtis ( founder of SOS) has been ill for 6 weeks and had to stay in bed most of that time.
He knew to be well he had to wait until The Lord gave him strength.today he is able to go to the conference that SOS is participating in at Saint Petersburg, Fl. Praise The Lord.

Prayer Needed

June 24, 2014

20140624-060853-22133169.jpg
This week SOS Events is participating in a Christian Conference held in Saint Petersburg, Fl. Prayer is needed as pastors and laymen walk by our booth that they may see the need to evangelize in the marketplace.
Most people will not come to a gospel preaching church if they are not saved and we need to go to them.
The time is short!! Everyday we see that maybe soon we as Christians will not have the freedom to be in public places to proclaim the gospel.
The group that is in St. Pete this week could make a difference all over the country if they would just get a vision of the lost souls in America.
Please pray with us for new commitments this week.

John 9:4
I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day:the night cometh, when no man can work.

World War II Veteran Saved

June 23, 2014

On the1st day of Summer, the Lord Jesus saved 9 souls @ the Auburndale, FL. Farmers/Flea Mkt. for His glory!!. There were (2 teens, 7 adults) from Footville, Wisconsin, Batesville, Texas & the Florida towns of Haines City, Mulberry, Wahneta, Polk City & Kissimmee Florida.

Today’s unique highlight came from Nicholas. He is a 90 year old WW2 Veteran in a wheel chair being pushed by his adult grandson. He was attracted to our “3 Things God Cannot Do” Gospel Board. With tears in his eyes, Nicholas said his wife for the past 55 years had died two weeks ago. He was heartbroken. The funeral left him searching for spiritual answers. God gave Nicholas the answer to his biggest question as he listened to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. At 1:35PM, Nicholas prayed out load in the public aisle at the flea market in repentance & faith toward Jesus Christ alone to save his soul.

2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us- ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Salvation, Then Change

June 22, 2014

“Practically every false doctrine comes from getting things out of order. God’s divine order is salvation, then change; not change and then salvation! If one has to be changed to be saved, that’s salvation by works. It is also salvation by the flesh. The truth is, one is cleansed from the sins of the flesh just as he is saved; by yielding to the Holy Spirit and letting Him do His work.” ~Jack Hyles
When witnessing we often hear excuses why a person can not be saved now. A common excuse is “I need to quit _____________ before I can be saved.
(You fill in the blank)
Have you ever heard the expression, Putting the card before the horse?
The above quote is exactly right. A person is never good enough to be saved, that is why Jesus died to pay for our sins. When witnessing pray that the Holy Spirit will convict the person to understand that salvation is by accepting Christ, not by changing their lifestyle.

Ephesians 2:8-9
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves:it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
