Results After 15 Years

July 11, 2019

In the early days of SOS Events Ministry, Tom and Carolyn went to several Church Conferences to promote the ministry. They traveled to Illinois and set up a table with information about SOS Events. Pastors would come to the table and ask to be put on the mailing list.

Yesterday, one of those Pastors, Dale Williams, from Naperville, IL called and wanted a display board and materials to use in an event on August 2&3 this year. He has people in his congregation excited to start witnessing at events. They will take their training online.

One of the goals And prayers of SOS Events is to have teams in every state and God is supplying in wonderful ways. This was a contact made about 15 or 16 years ago. We never know when that contact or witness will bring forth results. The encouragement to you is this, if we keep sowing we will reap if we faint not.

Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Going Home

May 13, 2019

Going home. Vacation over. Time to go home. Sadness because it is over, but joy at the thought of seeing loved ones and getting to our comfortable home. The plane will get us there in just a few hours and there may be delays. Reminds me of our life. We live and then it is time to go “home” to Heaven. Looking back we don’t want to leave but looking forward to seeing Jesus and the ones we love who have gone on before. Jesus will usher us in in immediately after our last breath.

1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Be Ready

May 10, 2019

One woman and her husband accepted the Lord as their Savior. Before they left the booth, she told the soul winner that when she walked into the building she knew something good was going to happen, she could feel it. Then she gave the soul winner a hug.

The Holy Spirit will prepare a person’s heart to accept Him but if the soul winner isn’t prepared or willing to share then that person will either not accept the Lord that day or the Lord will find someone else that can share the good news with them.

Why not let that person be you, the one that shares?

2 Timothy 4:2 (KJV) says, Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.

 

 

Talladega NASCAR Races

April 27, 2019

3 SOS Events volunteers waiting for race car fans to stop and see the “3 Things God Can Not Do” at the Talladega Races. Today is the trials for tomorrow’s big race and many people walk by the booth as they look to see all the vendors products. They come to be part of the experience, to eat food, buy race car memorabilia, but they do not expect to find Jesus.

Please pray with us today that many souls will come to know and accept Jesus as their Savior.

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.)

Alabama SOS Events

April 22, 2019

Saturday was one of those days when you can sit back an marvel at God’s perfect timing. Beth and Wesley were delayed at the New Site Car Show and Trade Day until after 8 am because of rain. They set up the SOS Events Ministry tent and shared the Gospel with a very small amount of passersby due to the windy and rainy weather. After a few hours most people were leaving so they decided to call it a day.

God’s perfect timing. Beth needed to go to Foodland to grab a bell pepper for chilli and that was God’s Divine Appointment. Wesley got out and shared a tract with Montavius who was on his break (again perfect timing) and he wasn’t 100% sure that he was going to heaven. He asked Jesus Christ to be his Lord and Savior right in front of the store as people walked by. And the angels and heaven rejoiced over the one who was added to the Kingdom!!!

So as we know sometimes it is not about sharing with a lot of people it’s about God’s perfect timing and divine appointments he has set up for us . Thank you Lord for a rainy and windy day so we could be right where you needed us to be and for the Gospel to be shared to a open heart . This is what Montavius said after he prayed “After I prayed a heavy weight was lifted from my spirit. I feel all the love of God flowing all over me He is awesome!! ” This is what a tract handed out and a burden for the lost can do. It was a great day Serving Our Savior!!!

Proverbs 3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Planting Seeds

March 21, 2019

When asked what happened at an event, sometimes a SOS Events volunteer will say, “We planted seed today.” What do they mean? No one received Jesus as their Savior that day.

Disappointed? Yes, but we have to remember that seeds that are planted grow. We do not know what that tract or our testimony will do in the heart of an unbeliever. The Word of God is the seed and it will not return void. Some plant, some water but God gives the increase, in His timing. So do not be discouraged, if the person does not accept the Lord right then, keep planting seeds and let them grow.

1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

Divine Appointment

January 8, 2019

The following testimony was posted on Face Book yesterday by Beth and Wesley Walker, Trainers and Event Leaders with SOS Events Ministry in Alabama. They use the “3 Things God Can Not Do” tracts and simple plan of salvation in their everyday lives and this is the result:

Praising God and the angels are singing!!!! Thank you Lord for divine appointments!!!! Sitting in Walmart waiting on oil change when God brought a sweet young lady in to sit beside Wesley. Conversation started and a tract was shared and ended with her praying to accept Jesus Christ as her Savior. Yes it’s that simple!! God will provide the lost to be right where he has his servants ready to share the Gospel. Please pray for Nicole as she starts her new life as a new creation!!!!

Luke 15:7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

Praise for 24 Decisions

July 30, 2018

Thank you to part of the Florida SOS Team for taking time out on a Saturday to share the plan of salvation to families attending the YMCA Camp Cristina Back Pack Event July 28th in Riverview. We praise the Lord for 24 more souls that are now 100% sure they will go to heaven. Thank you to the coordinators of this event for the invitation to come.

As you see in the picture below, the display board says, “See Three Things God Cannot Do“.  For those of you who do not know the ministry of  Event Evangelism / SOS Events Ministry I would like to share what those 3 things are.

 1) God Cannot Lie  Titus 1:2   (God loves you)

 2) God Cannot Change  Malachi 3:6  (If God loves you and He cannot lie, how long will    He love you?)

3) God Cannot Let Anyone Into Heaven Unless They Are Born Again  John 3:3-5  (Are you 50%, 75% or 100% sure you would go to Heaven if you died today?)

YOU can be 100% sure. According to Scripture it is as simple as the ABC’s…

A – Admit that YOU have sinned. Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”

B – Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth… and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him (Jesus) from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

C – Call upon the Lord. Romans 10:13, “For whosoever (you) shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.”

If you are not 100% sure and would like to be, here is a simple prayer to call on the Lord to repent of your sins and accept Jesus as your Savior. “Lord Jesus, I admit I am a sinner, I believe you died on the cross for forgiveness of my sins, I ask that you forgive my sins, come into my heart and make my life new. I receive you as my Savior. Thank you. Jesus. Amen.”

If you prayed this prayed, please contact the ministry for a free Bible study to help you start your new walk in the Lord.  http://www.sosevents.org

Gabriel, Angel Sent From God

December 16, 2017

Luke 1:19 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.

Luke 1:26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

Only two angels are mentioned by name in the New Testament. Gabriel and Michael. Gabriel was an archangel who was a messenger sent by God to deliver news to Zacariah and then later to Mary. Gabriel is also mentioned in the book of Daniel in the Old Testament. Angels had an important role in the birth of the Lord Jesus. Their presence brought fear into the hearts of the people they appeared to according to scripture.

We tend to forget that people like Zacariah, Mary and Joseph were just ordinary people that God used in extraordinary circumstances. If Gabriel appeared to us today we too would be afraid. As Christians we can look forward to the time when we will see angels in Heaven. What a wonderful future we have and there will be no fear, only wonder and beauty as we behold Heaven and meet Jesus face to face.
