Elizabeth

December 13, 2017

Elizabeth was well beyond child bearing age but God gave her a child in answer to many years of sadness and grief because she was barren. He used miracle baby, John, to be the forerunner of Jesus.Elizabeth and her husband had dearly longed for a child. They had prayed for one and the culture of the day had demanded they needed one. Yet no child came.

The miracle told to Zachariah by the Angel happened and the pregnant Elizabeth hid herself for 5 months.

Luke 1:7 And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years.

TV Repair

October 19, 2017


This is Shawn, a TV technician, who came to check out the service on the Curtis home cable box.  As Shawn was waiting for the box to reboot, Carolyn asked him if he knew the “3 Things God Can Not Do”. He did not know. Then she went through the Bible verses with him. Titus 1:2, Malachi 3:6 and John 3:3-5. Shawn admitted he was a sinner, believed on the Lord Jesus Christ and called upon Jesus to be his Savior. What a blessing. (This is the second man who has accepted Jesus when they came to fix this problem)

Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Time

March 12, 2017

Did you remember to set your clock ahead? If not do it now. Man can change the time for convenience but In Ecclesiastes God says there is an appointed time for everything.


Ecclesiastes 3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

More Grandmother’s Prayers

March 8, 2017

Brian, 25 years old, has only been working for the concession company for one week. The first place that he worked is the Strawberry  Festival in Plant City, Florida. His home is in North Carolina. His Grandmother has been praying for him for years. Brian came into the SOS Events booth and was saved. Coincidence? No! God gave him that job and lead him to that booth in answer to his Grandmother’s prayers. 

Matthew 21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Rejoicing

February 10, 2017

SOS Events Ministries has many reasons to rejoice. Every week at flea markets, fairs and other like events souls are saved. The wonderful thing about it is that we work as a team.

Usually one team member presents the “3 Things God Can Not Do” to an unsaved person and another soul winner tells the person how to be saved by sharing the ABC’s of salvation. God gives the increase.

If you would like to know more contact SOS: info@sosevents.org.

John 4:36 (KJV)

And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal:that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.

We Need YOU!

February 8, 2017

The Florida Strawberry Festival is about a month away. We are in full swing with trainings for those that would like to help share The Three Things God Cannot Do at the festival booth. A total of 132 slots need filled during the 11 days of the event.  If you would like to train to help share the 3 Things please contact the ministry through our website  www.sosevents.org where you are able to view the 3 Things God Cannot Do or you can go to SignUpGenius for the calendar and choose your spot.

Last year over 200 people come to know the Lord as their Savior. We are already praying for those that will work in the booth as well as those that will come by the booth to hear and trust Christ.

We are asking for your prayers and if availability and location allows you to commit to help this year we look forward to hearing from you.

Matthew 9:37 (KJV) Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;

Praise of Salvation

February 2, 2017

Wednesday, at the local farmer’s flea market, some of the SOS workers shared the plan of salvation using the Three Things God Cannot Do…. 1) God Cannot Lie   2) God Cannot Change and  3) God Cannot Let Anyone Into Heaven Unless They Are Born Again.  Praise the Lord for the 6 people who trusted in Jesus as their Savior.

I Thessalonians 5:9 (KJV) For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.

God’s Plan

September 20, 2016

We sometimes wonder why our plans do not work. Carolyn and granddaughter Beka traveled to Pennsyvania to work at an event but tried to schedule an appointment with a church in New Jersey while they were there. After several tries to make the plan to visit the supporting church did not happen Carolyn gave up trying. She decided to spend some family time in PA instead with her son and daughter-in-law when the event was over.

Going out into the yard in the early evening, Carolyn’s son Steve saw his next-door neighbor and called him over to the fence. Introductions were made and Gary, the neighbor, ask why Beka and Carolyn were in the neighborhood.

The conversation turned to the display board that we use in SOS Events. Gary had seen the board and called it the Bean Toss for Jesus. Carolyn assumed that Gary was saved. However, found out that though Steve had witnessed to him many times, he had never accepted the Lord.

Carolyn then proceeded to ask several questions and finally said, “Gary, will you pray with me and ask Jesus to be your Savior.” He did and they rejoiced together.

Had Carolyn had her way, Gary would not have had the opportunity to be saved. God directs our paths and our plans if we allow Him to.

Proverbs 4:11 I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.

Aggravation Blessings

August 1, 2016

Sometimes aggravation can turn into a blessing. About a month ago Carolyn won a young man to the Lord named, Carlos. He is a Service man for SOS Events Wi-Fi system that we use for the office as well as the home on the property. 

After a severe storm last week the Wi-Fi system was not working well so we called for service. The service man who came was the same Carlos and Carolyn was able to talk with him some more about his new faith and she gave him the book 101 Salvation Stories. He was happy to receive it. It was such a blessing to see him again and know that he is growing in his Christian faith.

1 Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

Monday Morning

Monday morning!! Some people look forward to the start of a new work week or maybe dread it.  Others may be facing trials. You may be starting a vacation week, looking forward to fun and excitement. However you look at this Monday morning remember that we are to view every day with thanks onto God for giving us this day to Praise and serve Him.

Psalms 118:24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
