Salvations

March 30, 2016

On Monday, Dena and Glen, faithful SOS Events workers, went to the Webster Flea Market in Florida and Five people were saved. What a blessing. Please pray for these new converts.

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.

He Arose

March 29, 2016

You may not have heard of a man named Robert Lowry, (1826-1899) but if you have been going to church you have heard and sung his hymns. He authored and composed over 200 hymns back in the 1800’s. “Shall we gather at the river”, “I need thee every hour”, “All the way my Savior leads me” are just a few that you may know. The one that we hear the most is sung at Easter services, “He Arose”:

1 Low in the grave he lay, Jesus my Savior, 

waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord! 

Refrain:

Up from the grave he arose; 

with a mighty triumph o’er his foes; 

he arose a victor from the dark domain, 

and he lives forever, with his saints to reign. 

He arose! He arose! Hallelujah! Christ arose!

2 Vainly they watch his bed, Jesus my Savior, 

vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord! [Refrain]

3 Death cannot keep its prey, Jesus my Savior; 

he tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord! [Refrain]

1 Corinthians 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

Grandchildren

March 28, 2016

Grandchildren are a wonderful blessing from the Lord. Yesterday there were many family pictures posted on Facebook and other media of our family dressed for Easter. The children looked happy and excited. The little girls looked beautiful and the boys handsome. What a blessing that they could enjoy the freedom to worship at church, eat candy from their Easter baskets and enjoy time with their families doing fun things together.

Our world is changing and the future for the young ones is uncertain, but the one thing that is certain and unchanging is that each of the grandchildren will be with us in heaven if they trust Jesus as their Savior. (Thankfully most of them have already done that)

Proverbs 17:6 Children’s children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.

  

He Has Risen

 Romans 8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

Easter Celebrations 

March 26, 2016

Today many children will be looking forward to tomorrow when they will celebrate Easter with egg hunts, baskets filled with candy, the Easter bunny and maybe a day that  they will be with family and friends. Something is missing.

The most important reason why all these things are in their lives: the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. The focus should be on Him. Make sure that the true meaning does not get lost in all the preparations and plans.

My favorite memory of Easter is my grandmother taking me to a sunrise service outside looking over a beautiful view from on top of a hill. Then we would go to breakfast and on to church where the hymns about Jesus would be sung and the resurrection story would be told.

We serve a risen Savior, let us make sure He is first in our celebration on Easter Sunday.

Matthew 28:6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

John Adams Quote

March 25, 2016

 “Without religion this world would be something not fit to be mentioned in polite company, I mean Hell.”

JOHN ADAMS, letter to Thomas Jefferson, Apr. 19, 1817

Quote by John Adams 2nd President of the United States of America. He may not have been a born again Christian but he did honor God as did most of the founding Fathers. He believed in freedom “of” religion not freedom “from” religion. We need to get back to honoring God in our country once again.

1 Timothy 1:17 Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Serving Our Savior

March 24, 2016

The Flea Market in Plant City, Fl on Wednesdays continues to have souls come to the Lord. Last week  16 people trusted Jesus as their Savior and yesterday 2 more came to Christ. What a wonderful opportunity to serve the Lord weekly.     

Psalms 100:2 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.        

 

Amazing Staff

March 23, 2016

The office staff of SOS events is amazing. They all go above and beyond what is expected or asked of them. 

Diana, office manager, teacher, trainer and friend does so many things that an ordinary employee would not do. She keeps everything running smoothly. Does all the banking and along with Carolyn takes care of donations and finances.

Alice, who does most of the scheduling of events, makes phone calls to coordinate workers, trains, and regularly wins souls at a weekly flea market. 

Beka, has worked in the office part time since seventh grade, now is about to graduate from high school. She loves the ministry and is a soul winner. She is willing to do whatever necessary to help. She also does computer work and knows how the ministry functions.

Hailey is also a senior in high school who started working this year with SOS Events. She does all the things that are so important to keep supplies for events. She does filing, makes decision cards, packages tracts, sends reminders and cards to workers and various little things that are to numerous to mention.

Julianna, also a senior in high school and our newest office worker. She does computer work and her responsibilities include recording decisions and making sure the new converts get Bible studies.

There are also several volunteers who will come when extra work is needed in the office.

This staff is dedicated to the Lord, SOS Events ministry and also are a great help to the founders, Tom and Carolyn. We are so thankful to have this staff working daily in the office. 

Tom and Carolyn just want to publicly thank them and want them to know how much they are appreciated.

Hebrews 6:10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
