Salvation Army SalvationĀ 

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.
