New Volunteers

January 26, 2023

SOS Events Ministry is always looking for volunteers. Yesterday, Stephanie and Alice had the opportunity to train 6 new volunteers at a church in Temple Terrace, Florida.

The volunteers are so excited to begin their new method of evangelism using the “3 Things God Can Not Do.”

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

Let God Direct Your Steps!

January 21, 2023

Why is it important to allow God to direct our steps?

We make wrong decisions when we do not pray and seek God’s will for our lives.

How can we know which way to go? God will never take us anywhere that is against the principles in the Bible.

God will not lead us to walk with companions who are living in sin.

He will open the right doors for us to go through and shut the doors if it is not His will for us.

Conclusion: Pray, Read and study the Bible, Ask advice from people who are close to God, Seek friendships of people who love the Lord.

Alabama SOS Events Leaders and Volunteers

January 18, 2023

Sometimes SOS Events does not have opportunity to have a booth at all events. This was the case in Alabama recently.

Carl Norton and Dale Brown decided to go into the Shakespeare Festival and walk around talking to people. The 3 Things God Can Not Do is an effective way to witness one on one.

They had 3 people accept Jesus. One was a little girl that was there with her mother.

Waiting to go to an specific event to tell others about Jesus may not always be possible, but God will bless if we use every opportunity to make our own “event”.

Jesus was the example when He talked to the woman at the well. The account is in John chapter 4.

Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour. There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink. John 4:6-7

Do You Need Something?

January 13, 2023

If you have a need or even a want the first place you should go to get it is prayer. The Bible promises if we seek the Lord first in our lives all things will be added on to us.

Sometimes, God does not give us what we want because he knows best. He knows what we need.

God never fails to take care of His children and he will meet all our needs.

WHY?

January 12, 2023
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Sometimes we make plans that seem very important to us at the time. Then something comes up, and those plans change. Maybe there’s an accident, a friend needs our help, or we cannot do it because we get sick. We are extremely disappointed and wonder, WHY?

God has allowed our plans to change. Remember, God loves us and He knows why. He may reveal the answer, but often He does not. That is when we need to trust Him all the more. He can turn our plans into His plan. The whole direction of our life can turn around in the change of just one of our plans. Are we trusting Him with our disappointments?

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Time for Church

January 8, 2023
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. Hebrews 10:25

Now that all the festivities of Christmas and New Years are over it is time to get back to a regular routine.

The best way to start that routine every week is to be in church.

Many people for whatever reason have stopped going to church. They may watch it online or TV but to actually go seems to hard or to difficult.

Why is it important to go? God tells us to go in His Word. We need the spiritual strength of one another. In time of trouble we have no one to turn to if we do not have a Pastor that cares about us.

Today, decide to make church a priority.

Little Things

January 7, 2023
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1 Peter 5:7

Little things. Are you concerned about little things? Maybe it is something you have misplaced and it is really bothering you.

Wondering what to wear or worried about a conversation you are going to have with a loved one or friend. All these daily little things that get in the way of the important things.

Worry is a sin. The Bible tells us to cast our care upon the Lord. Does He care about the little things? Yes. Nothing is too small for Him to help you with, pray about everything.

Senior Servants

January 6, 2023

The Group of ladies that come and work once a month to make sue the “Life Saving News” newsletter gets in the mail, met on the first Thursday in January. They are SOS Events Senior Servants.

SOS EVents Ministry is so blessed to have faithful volunteers who help in every area of the ministry. Some come to Senior Servants, many go to events to witness in person, a few volunteer to make the displays or work on the property. Everyone who prays, contribute and volunteers are greatly needed and appreciated.

There is room for you to volunteer. The goal of SOS Events is to have teams in every State of the USA and beyond. Will you help to meet the goal?

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Colossians 3:23

14 First Salvations in 2023!

January 5, 2023

God is so good! The first Wednesday Flea Market in Plant City, Fl had 14 decisions to follow Jesus as their Savior.

SOS Events Ministry has been going to this Flea Market every week for many years. You may think that people would not respond to the Gospel after the same message is given week after week, often by the same volunteers.

However, God is faithful and blesses His Word every time it is given. Thank you, Lord for a great start to the New Year.

It is also a reminder to not be weary in the Lord’s work. It is a New Year, new beginnings and new opportunities to win new people to the Lord!

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance
