Little Things

July 18, 2019

This LITTLE twig caused great problems in the SOS Events home office. The air conditioner stopped working in Alice’s office. The compressor came on but the fan did not work. In 90 degree heat an air conditioner is a must. Before purchasing a new one, Tony, Diana’s husband, came to take a look. When he checked the fan he found this LITTLE stick blocking the fan. Problem solved.

Many times in our Christian lives we allow LITTLE things to spoil our joy and relationship with others. The Bible tells us that LITTLE things, like the tongue, cause great problems. Let us determine to not allow LITTLE things to ruin out testimony or our relationship with God and others.

James 3:5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!

Worship the Lord

George Washington Quote

July 3, 2019

Tomorrow is the 4th of July… a holiday to celebrate America’s freedom. Truth about the founding of our country is no longer taught in public schools. Most of the younger generation have no idea that our founding Father’s trusted and relied upon God for wisdom to govern our nation. Unrest, immorality and crime have become the normal in the USA. It is every Christians responsibility to teach our children and grandchildren about the foundation of America. The Bible was the source of inspiration for those leaders, pray it is the inspiration of our leaders today.

Psalms 33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.

Work and Rest

June 26, 2019

SOS Events summer intern teens working hard pulling weeds on the ministry’s property (top). Then taking a well deserved rest (with a little fun added). Electricity was out yesterday and it was very hot in Florida but these girls worked until the job was finished. They are learning many things working for SOS Events this summer. They are a blessing.

God even rested after He created the world. He gave us an example. Work and rest. Both important for a happy productive life.

Hebrews 4:4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.

No Electricity

June 25, 2019

No power, no internet, no coffee, no lights, no water (pump runs water from a well). Thankfully morning comes and we have light from the sun. We are so dependent on electricity for our lifestyle that without it we seem powerless to do anything.

As Christians we have a source of power that never goes out. Jesus is the light and the power in our lives to do everything we need to do. We can do all things through Jesus. He has promised us in His Word. Do not loose your power by neglecting to read the Bible and pray everyday. We can think the power has gone out but He is waiting for us to reconnect.

Jesus Calms the Storm

June 19, 2019

Ordinarily, the is no fear of storms. In Florida with hurricanes and other disasters a thunderstorm would not be fearful. But last night the loudest claps of thunder was so strong it actually shook the house and no one in this area could sleep.

Fear of fire from lightning and fallen trees from wind brought fear into my heart. Then with prayer and calming Bible verses sweet peace filled my heart knowing Jesus would calm the storm. Sleep during the rest of the storm. Praising the Lord this morning for His protection.

Are You Listening?

While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts….

A Special Thank You

June 8, 2019

Sometimes things do not go as planned. That is exactly what happened when the Senior Servants with SOS Events came to work this month. When the newsletters ran out something was wrong. There were many pages of labels left and no more newsletters. Then one of the ladies noticed a duplicate name on a label.

What could we do? Some of the ladies offered to stay and put all the letters in alphabetical order, then go through a second time and compare to make sure to pull all duplicates. Those then had to be relabeled. It took several extra hours and all were found but 10. Thank you to all our Senior Servants. A special thanks to the ladies who could stay longer and help untangle the problem.

2 Thessalonians 1:3 We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth;

Birthday Wishes

June 1, 2019

Today is SOS Events cofounder, Carolyn Curtis, 81st birthday. You can help her celebrate not with gifts but take a moment to pray for her. Wisdom, good health and strength are her personal needs, but her desire is to see SOS Events Ministry grow with more soul winners, more salvations and in territory. Also, that God will provide someone with a heart for souls and SOS Events Ministry when it is time for her to retire or go “home” to meet the Lord. She is thankful for her 2nd birthday. The day she accepted Jesus as her Savior over 60 years ago.

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.
