SOS Leaders

January 20, 2017

SOS Events had a successful meeting with team leaders from FL, AL, PA via phone conference yesterday. We thank the Lord for all the leaders that oversee events and train others to be soul winners.

Proverbs 11:3 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

Worldwide Influence 

January 19, 2017

SOS Events ministry does not have fancy, expensive buildings. Everyone, who wins souls at events are volunteers. God does bless with many souls every year and we are thankful to be called as witnesses for Him.

SOS Events does have a worldwide influence through the blog, however. Last year, 2016, people from 102 countries visited the blog. Many like the Bible Studies. Our prayer is that people from all over the world would be saved by being directed to the webpage. 

Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Day of Salvation

January 18, 2017

The weekly Plant City Flea Market is today. Last Wednesday one precious soul accepted Christ as Savior. Join in prayer with the staff of SOS Events that today many will be saved.

2 Corinthians 6:2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

You Must Be Born Again

January 17, 2017

“I believe that a great number of people are going to die and go to hell because they’re counting on their religiosity in the church instead of their relationship with Jesus to get them to heaven. They give lip service to repentance and faith, but they’ve never been born again.” Adrian Rogers

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.


Children

January 16, 2017

Graceanne Williams

Yesterday I had the privilege of attending my daughter, Graceanne’s, Sunday School class that she teaches. What a blessing to see and hear one of our children, as an adult following the Lord. Graceanne spoke about the Bible and how to study and grow closer to the Lord through daily reading and meditating on the Bible.

Training children is not an easy task. It requires wisdom, consistency, prayer and patience. In our family daily devotions together was required from the time they were born. Regular church attendance and a good Christian school were all part of successful child rearing. A home where parents were united in love, discipline and good times were also part of our home when the children were growing up. Also, the willingness to admit when we are wrong goes a long way to build trust in your children. 

If you are a young parent do not be discouraged. Look at your children not as they are but what they will become when the Lord directs them in the future.

Carolyn Curtis

Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Men From Appomattox 

January 14, 2017

These five men totally transformed the outside of the SOS Events office buildings in 4 days. Not only are they hard workers but dedicated Christians. They are standing on the new deck that doubled the size of the space we use for meetings and workspace when needed.

Thank you (from left to right), Arnold, Patrick, Pastor Jonathan, Kevin and Jerry. Praying for a safe trip home to Appomattox, VA today.

1 Thessalonians 1:2 We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers;

Friday the 13th

January 13, 2017

It is Friday the 13th. Are you superstitious?  There are a number of popular myths and superstitions surrounding the day, most famously:

If you cut your hair on Friday the 13th, someone in your family will die.

If a funeral procession passes you on Friday the 13th, you will be the next to die.

Do not start a trip on Friday or you will encounter misfortune.

If you break a mirror on Friday the 13th, you will have seven years of bad luck.

A child born on Friday the 13th will be unlucky for life.

Ships that set sail on a Friday will have bad luck.

If you walk under a ladder or if a black cat crosses you on Friday the 13th, you will have bad luck.

As a Christian we should not believe in luck, good or bad. We should trust the Lord for everyday no matter what the calendar says. Superstition causes our minds to be confused and results in lack of trust in God.

Psalms 71:1 In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.

Work On

January 12, 2017

Work on SOS Events property continues. We are thankful for all the hard work these 5 men from Bible Baptist Church, Appomattox, VA are doing. The offices of SOS Events are just 2 job trailers and all the planning and administration happens from the space the Lord has provided.

As you can see the money donated does not go for fancy buildings and expensive facilities, but all goes to the goal of seeing souls come to Jesus. We do need to take care of what we have however, and the sacrifice of these men from VA are a blessing. Please pray for them. 2 of them have had news of serious illness in a family member since they have been here, but they continue to work on.

1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Whose First?

January 11, 2017

Do you put Jesus in your life as first priority? He will direct your paths in all areas of your life if you put Him first.

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
