Special Blessing

August 30, 2014

Stone! Piles of stone that needed to be spread out in front of the property. We tried to hire someone to come and spread it but no one was willing to work.
Tom has not been feeling well so he could not do it, so everyday for over a week I would go out and do my best but could only move about six buckets a day. We are in our 70’s and things are not as easy as they once were.
I was getting a little discouraged when one evening the phone rang.
One of my grandsons, Justin, said, “Grandma, The Lord put you on my heart, is there anything I can do for you.”
Once again, God showed me of His loving care for His children. Justin has 4 children and a full time job,so we rarely see him because he is a busy man.
Yesterday, he and his wife came over and he worked on that stone. Before noon everything was in place.
We are so thankful, first to The Holy Spirit for prompting Justin to call and then for the obedience and work of this grandson. We are blessed.

1 Peter 5:7
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Exciting News

August 29, 2014

Patty and her two daughters came to Florida several months ago to be trained as an Event Leader with SOS. She lives in Alabama and works with The SOS team in Montgomery.
Yesterday, she called to ask for prayer in the morning, as she was going to a meeting with people from churches from all over the state to present SOS and to get workers for the Talladega car race in October.
She called back in the afternoon, so excited. Not only did many people want to be trained for the race, but several wanted to use SOS in their home churches for future activities.
Please pray for Patty and the Alabama team as they are used of God to expand SOS Events in Alabama.

1 Chronicles 4:10
And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.

Jesus Is Knocking

August 28, 2014

Jesus is knocking on the door of many hearts today. If you do not know Him, He wants to come into your life as your Savior. If you do know Him, He wants you to be a witness for Him and tell others how they can have Him in their lives.
Watch the training videos on the home page and you will find help for both of these situations.

“If you have no joy, there’s a leak in your Christianity somewhere.”
~ Billy Sunday
Happiness is something everyone searches for, but it depends on the things that happen to us in life, our circumstances. Some people never attain happiness.
Joy is different. No matter what our circumstances we can have joy. Joy is from the heart. It is our attitude toward our circumstances. The only way to have true joy is to have Jesus as our Savior.
We can also practice the advice in this little saying:
J put Jesus first
O others second
Y yourself last
Have a joyful day!!!

1 John 1:4
And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

Soul Winning

August 26, 2014

“I would rather win souls than be the greatest king or emperor on earth; I would rather win souls than be the greatest general that ever commanded an army; I would rather win souls than be the greatest poet, or novelist, or literary man who ever walked the earth. My one ambition in life is to win as many as possible.”
~ R. A. Torrey
Want to learn how, when, and where to win souls more effectively? Contact SOS Events for more information. Email:

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

Tract Testimony

August 25, 2014

Several months ago, I spoke to my daughter’s Sunday School Class and gave each class member a few tracts. Yesterday one of the women in the class told my daughter this testimony.
“While out shopping, I saw two men sitting on a bench. They looked like they had some time, so I approached them and started to witness to them using the SOS tract 3 Things God Can Not Do. It is a simple easy way to tell someone of their need of salvation. One of the men were saved and the other put the tract in his pocket to make a decision later.”
It is a wonderful blessing to know that our labour is not in vain and His Word does not return void.

Isaiah 55:11
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:
it shall not return unto me void,
but it shall accomplish that which I please,
and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Day of Worship

August 24, 2014

Some people are unable to go to church and worship on the Lord’s Day.
Care givers, police, firefighters, hospital workers, illness are some that may not be able to assemble as the Bible directs.
A word of encouragement to you if you are one of those people. God loves you and true worship comes from the heart.
If you are able to go to church be thankful and remember those who are not able to go. Maybe a note or a phone call would brighten their day.
Pray for those you can think of that may not be in the congregation.
If you need prayer Tom or one of the staff at SOS wants to pray with you.
Call 813-784-8242.

John 4:23
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth:for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

Homeless Man

August 23, 2014

“Christian character is how you treat those who can do nothing for you.”
Waiting for a prescription at the pharmacy, a man came up to me and ask for some money. It was a very hot day in Florida, close to 95 degrees, but this man had on a heavy jacket and winter hat. He was not an old man, but looked it because of his long unkept beard.
I told him, “Out in the parking lot there is a red car with a man sitting in it, go talk to him, he has the answer for you.”
When I came out of the store the man saw me and followed me to the car.
I asked him why he did not come to the car earlier, and he told me he was afraid.
Tom was so gracious to that homeless man, giving home some suggestions where he could find a place to sleep and get a good meal, gave him a small amount of money and most important prayed with him for salvation and also that The Lord would bless him in the future.
People need The Lord and many need prayer. If you have a prayer need call Tom at 813-784-8242. This is a new ministry of SOS Events and several people have called, emailed and written for prayer.

Acts 10:34
Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
