SOS Events Supporters

July 26, 2016

Thank you who give to SOS Events Ministry. Founded in 2001 this ministry has documented over 50,000 souls who have made decisions to follow Jesus. There are some of you who have prayed, volunteered and given financially since the very beginning. Others are new supporters.

Contributions come in snail mail with checks or even cash and there are those people who prefer to give through PayPal. The amount varies from one time large gifts to the little ladies who may send a dollar or two each month. Every donation is appreciated and used to win souls to Christ.

The only paid positions in SOS Events are the small office staff. All others from the President of the ministry to volunteers who spend their own money many times for travel and even cost of events receive nothing from SOS Events except prayer and appreciation. There are a few missionaries who receive designated support and every penny goes directly to them.

Some of you who read this blog may be “turned off” by the subject of money but it does take money to function and win souls in today’s economy. If you have never given to SOS Events but would like to give, every donation large or small is appreciated and will be used to win people to the Lord. Go to the home page and click on the donate button or send via snail mail to SOS, P.O. Box 189, Dover, FL 33527.

If you cannot give financially you can do something even more needed. Pray everyday for the staff, volunteers and most of all for lost souls to be saved.

Matthew 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Gifts for Jesus

December 8, 2015

  
Two SOS Events workers from Alabama are pictured here telling people who came to a Christmas program  at church to check out the 3 Things God Can Not Do. 45 decisions for Jesus was recorded at this event.

Christmas season is a great time to witness for the Lord. Jesus is the reason for the season. What a wonderful gift to bring to Him on His birthday, new Christians who have accepted Him.

The wise men brought gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh but we can give Him even greater gifts, first ourselves and then to bring others to Him by telling them of God’s great gift to us. Eternal life through Jesus Christ.

Matthew 2:11  And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

The Perfect Gift

November 30, 2015

The next 25 days for a lot of people will be the busiest time of year preparing for that perfect Christmas gift. Shopping in crowded stores, looking at catalogs, shopping on line. 

The best gift you can give anyone is telling them about Jesus. For your unsaved friend, coworker or relative their best gift would be receiving Jesus as their Savior.

For your Christian loved ones a time of fellowship, a phone call or a message. Your time is more precious than any gift you could possibly buy.

Enjoy the Christmas season but don’t forget the best gift ever given…..Jesus.

Romans 6:23  For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Giving

April 10, 2015

It is so exciting when the mail comes in after the monthly newsletter has gone out. Usually there are many envelopes ready to be opened from SOS Events supporters.

This month there has been many blessings in the mail. First the regular supporters who are faithful to send an offering every month. Some of them have been supporting SOS Events since the ministry was founded in 2001. The faithfulness of these supporters is so appreciated. Without regular support the ministry would not have grown to what it is today and would not be able to continue.

Then there are people who love to give to projects. If there is a need, these people like to designate to the need. This month there were several mentioned. Funds for materials for building a paint shop, a new printer, traveling expenses for missionaries to go to the Talledega Races, individual support for new missionaries and several other requests.

As the mail keeps coming in many of the special requests have been met. One family sent an additional offering along with their monthly support through PayPal. A church donated a used printer that is better than any SOS Events could afford. Another person sent a check to help with traveling expenses. One special needs supporter gave SOS access to their account with a printing company to get banners printed for our missionaries. (A need that was not even mentioned in the newsletter). One of the local pastors donated some new lumber to help with the paint shop project. God uses people to meet the needs of the ministry and first Praise the Lord for His faithfulness. Then a big Thank You to every supporter who love to see souls come to Christ and gives. Every gift is a blessing and is used with the goal of seeing more people come to know JESUS.

If you would like to give click the donate button on the home page and all the information is there for you. God loves a cheerful giver.

“A Christmas Carol”

December 14, 2014

“It is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty Founder was a child Himself.”
Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens gave us the wonderful story of “A Christmas Carol” which is still popular today and almost everyone has seen or heard this story in one form or another, as the concept has been adapted by many authors.
Charles Dickens was a self educated man who had very little formal education because his father was in debtors prison and Charles was forced to work to provide for the family.
This situation made him determined to better himself and he became an editor, author and openly wrote about the injustices of that era.
He was a professed Christian although he spoke against hypocrisy in organized religion.
He loved Christmas and gave us a wonderful story of the change of heart from cruelty to the reward of giving to others.

Isaiah 9:6
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

The Lord Jesus saved 7 precious souls Father’s Day @ the Auburndale, FL. Farmers/Flea Mkt. for His glory!!.
We saw the Lord save the souls of a Dad & his two sons. The dad had just spent 6 years in prison. Now he is free from prison and today, Jesus has set him free from the penalty of sin! We also saw the Lord save a grandfather who was spending time with his grandson this Father’s Day. Special days & holidays are great times to see the Lord reap a harvest of souls. We love this mission field!!
