Small World

July 6, 2020

Carolyn Curtis’ grandson, Matthew, was working at a car dealership in Roanoke Virginia, when a car pulled in for service that had, Do You Know The 3 Things God Can Not Do on the back window. He went over to ask the couple who they were.

They replied, Glenn and Dena Priddy. They are from Florida but have a summer home in Virginia. Matthew, Glen and Dena had a wonderful conversation while waiting for their vehicle to be serviced.

The 2nd photo is Glen and Dena (in the blue shirts) at a SOS Event with 2 people that were saved. It is a small world and we never know what blessings will come to us when we witness for Jesus.

A sign on the back of your car, a tract or just a friendly smile can really make a difference in someone’s life today.

Matthew 5:16 – Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Car Show in Ohio

June 27, 2020

So happy an event is taking place even as this blog is being written. Thank you Ohio team for your faithfulness. Results to post soon.

Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

New Horizons and The Main Thing

June 15, 2020

SOS Events continue to move forward while many things in this world are at a standstill.

Last week Carolyn Curtis was finally able to travel to Nashville, Tennessee from Florida. She combined the trip into visiting family and then meeting with new missionary, Ronnie Burlison, his wife, Connie and William Slater, SOS Events board member. ( William is Carolyn’s son)

The meeting was successful as many plans for the moving forward were discussed. Ronnie will be going to Mississippi to find new events and train many churches to partner with SOS Events. He will also expand new areas in Northern Alabama.

A new soul winning tool is being developed. Details to come. One of the most important things discussed was how to reach college age people to spread the gospel. New ideas that are exciting.

God is moving SOS Events to bigger things. Please pray for events to open soon. New things are great but the heartbeat of the ministry is to see people come to know Jesus as their Savior. We must never loose sight of the main thing.

John 15:16 – Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and [that] your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

Move Forward

June 12, 2020

SOS Events Ministry office has been open throughout this whole time of stay at home directives because of coronavirus. We have not had any events or gatherings, however, there have been some wonderful opportunities for planning what is to come in the future.

God has sent us some new people. 2 new teen girls to help in the office, a new missionary couple, and an opportunity to add the state of Mississippi to our growing ministry.

When things do not go as we plan, the Lord does not want us to stop doing His will or calling for SOS Events. This time has been a time of planning, and growing, in spite of social distancing.

We are praying that events will soon open and once again our team members can be out witnessing to the lost.

Deuteronomy 5:32 Ye shall observe to do therefore as the Lord your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.

Showers of Blessing

May 28, 2020

Yesterday, God sent literal showers but, He also sent the special blessing of 2 salvations at the Plant City Flea Market.

SOS Events faithful Wednesday workers got a little wet. They Praise the Lord for God’s showers especially the 2 salvations. What a blessing to be able to go to an event again to win souls.

Flea Market Open

May 21, 2020

Alice and Mark ( one of our SOS volunteers) had opportunity to go to the Plant City, Florida Flea Market yesterday.

The first time in over two months that SOS Events was able to go to an event. The crowd was a little sparse but God blessed with one young girl trusting Jesus as her Savior. Praise the Lord!

It is a joy to be able to go to events once again to witness. Pray with us for more events to open all over the USA and beyond.

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

New Intern for SOS Events

April 28, 2020

This is Stephanie. She is not in school because of the coronavirus so she is working with SOS Events a few mornings each week. (We are using social distancing)

Welcome to the office, Stephanie. We are happy to have you.

SOS Events has an intern program where young people that are in 7th grade or older can get experience working in a ministry. They work in the office and sometimes outside. When they are older and apply for jobs they have a reference and experience needed to secure good employment. They also see how a ministry works and have learned how to witness and win souls to the Lord. There have been at least 8 girls that have worked with SOS Events in our home office and many who work with other teams, especially in Alabama going to events to learn how to witness. Boys are part of this program, also.

I Timothy 4:12 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

Witnessing Opportunity

April 27, 2020

When we are under stay at home directives, all events have been cancelled or postponed. Does our responsibility to witness stop? No! Now is the time to take every opportunity to witness count.

Maybe someone phones you, even a wrong number, a repairman comes to fix a problem at your home or you have a friend who you can write a letter and include a tract. Keep doing what God wants us to do.

Last week a neighbor stopped by the SOS Events office and we were able to demonstrate the display board with the 3 Things God Can Not Do. She ask Jesus to be her Savior. Praise the Lord.

God will put someone in your path if you have a desire to win souls. Let’s keep soul winning!

God Gives The Increase

March 10, 2020

Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Florida is over for 2020. God blessed with 218 Salvations and many more opportunities to talk to people and proclaim the gospel. This was SOS Events 17th year. Approximately 4000 people have made decisions to follow Jesus at this one event in those years. To God be the glory.

2 Corinthians 4:6
For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

First Santuck, AL Flea Market in 2020

March 9, 2020

Super cold first Santuck Flea Market Saturday!! We were blessed greatly under the SOS Events Ministry tent with 5 people accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. We spoke to 119 people at the SOS board and gave out 196 tracts and were honoured to pray for 3 special people. Norma asked for prayer and was visibly moved to tears as she felt the love of Christ in her spirit. We are blessed to be able to help someone who is in need of prayer and thank God for the Holy Spirit guiding us. A big thank you to one of the the Alabama teams for Serving Our Savior and for the opportunity to share the Gospel with this life saving ministry.

Luke 14:23
And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
