Salvation Army Salvation 

July 31, 2015

Tom had a dentist appointment this week and on the way home there is a large Salvation Army store. The location of this particular store is not near Tom’s home, and it is rare that he gets to that area of Tampa.

Tom thought this would be a good opportunity to speak to the store manager about SOS Events ministry.

While waiting to speak to him, Tom was told that it’s a good thing he came today because the manager was being married on the weekend and would be gone on his honeymoon for  the next two weeks.

When this nice looking young manager came over, the first thing Tom did was to congratulate him on is coming marriage. Then he explained how at SOS Events we use the “3 things God cannot do.” When he got to the question, “Are you 50, 75 or 100% sure you are going to heaven when you die?”

The young man said, “I would say 50%.”

Tom was surprised thinking that someone who worked for the Salvation Army  would be saved. However, he continued asking the young man if he would like to know for sure he was going to Heaven.

When the answer was yes, Tom lead the young manager to Christ right in the aisle of the store.

After some rejoicing and more congratulations the manager went back to his work and Tom went home. Tom witnesses wherever he can, even with a swollen lip from several injections of Novacaine. 

If every Christian would take each opportunity the Lord gives, hundreds if not thousands of people would come to know Jesus. People need the Lord and many times are just waiting for someone to tell them.

2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

Pray With Us

July 30, 2015

Please join us in prayer for the USA at 9:00 PM Eastern time, daily for one minute. If you are in central time zone that is 8:00 PM. Mountain is 7:00 PM, and Pacific is 6:00. Pray for safety and that our country will turn back to the principles founded on the Bible.

If every Christian would pray together for just one minute at the same time everyday our nation could turn around. Send us an email: so that we know we can count on you. We have set our watches and phones to ring at 9 PM so we will not forget.

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.

The Columbia Baptist Association in Dothan, Alabama had an SOS Events training last weekend. 

Twelve volunteers were instructed by SOS Events trainers  on how to witness effectively at events. This group is excited to get started with the display board and materials supplied by SOS Events. They want to get into events to witness, especially at the motorcycle shows.

The Alabama team keeps growing with new volunteers and many souls being saved regularly.

Proverbs 9:9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.

The Son

“Exposure to the Son may prevent burning.”

Sign on a church marquee.

The Son is Jesus Christ and trusting Him as your Savior will prevent you from going to Hell.

John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

Holy Bible

July 27, 2015

The United States of America was founded on the principles of the Holy Bible  not the Koran.

Every day on the news Christians freedoms are being taken away.  There are many posts on Twitter, websites, and other social media that tell us what is wrong but very few  give an answer.

The only answer is found in the Bible.

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.”

Christians, we need to ask the Holy Spirit to reveal any sin in our heart, ask forgiveness, and fervently pray for our country.

God Is

Sometimes we don’t want to pray. That is because  we are  praying in the flesh not in the spirit.

To pray effectively we must be filled with the Holy Spirit. When we are filled with the Holy Spirit we will  want to pray.

When we pray we must first ask to be filled with the Holy Spirit, pray in Jesus name and pray expecting God  to answer.

Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 

Ephesians 6:18
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Nancy is one of SOS Events faithful Senior Servants. She is a diligent worker, dedicated Christian, children’s Sunday school teacher and works tirelessly when she comes once a month to help SOS. She is an encourager. She not only comes herself but picks up others so they may come and help also. When there is a lot of work to do she is always willing to stay longer than expected until the job is done.Nancy is also a great witness. She loves to use the ” three things God cannot do” to witness to others.

When Nancy meets the Savior, He will say, well done thou good and faithful servant.

Matthew 25:21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.


Rainy Weather

July 23, 2015

Typical day at the Flea Market in Plant City, FL. Every Wednesday the team from SOS Events is at the flea market. God always blesses us with many souls. Yesterday, after just a few hours the rain came down in buckets but before that there were 13 people who had accepted Christ.

God sends two kinds of showers, the rain from heaven and showers of blessings that many people are saved.

This picture shows some of the people who stopped  by the booth before the rains came down.

 Ezekiel 34:26 And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing. 

Don and Shirley

July 22, 2015

It is good to look back to see the blessings God has brought into the ministry.

Don and Shirley are one of the couples who have helped make the ministry grow. They joined SOS events in 2007. They had prayed for and supported  SOS Events since it began in 2001. Don and Shirley have traveled the farthest distance in the USA  taking SOS Events ministry to Montana in 2007 where over 75 people made a decision for Christ.

Please pray for Don and Shirley as they are no longer able to travel because of failing health, however, they still bless the ministry with their prayers and encouragement.

SOS Events ministry has grown and expanded because God has used people like Don and Shirley to further His gospel.

Shirley is pictured here with a young man she led to the Lord the year before in Indiana. This young man came to the booth  to tell Shirley how thankful he was for his salvation and wanted a picture with her.
 Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
