Packing For Our Trip To Heaven

June 6, 2020

Just as we pack for a trip, there are things we need to “pack” on our journey toward Heaven. The first and most important is Salvation. Being saved is our ticket, and without it we cannot enter. Prayer, Faith, Love Joy, Patience, Goodness, Truth, Service, Witnessing and Forgiveness. (you may think of a few more) are needed for our trip.

In this picture is a cat which cannot be taken and on our life’s journey we need to leave out things also, Hate, Lying, Gossip, Pride and Disobedience are a few.

As you prepare for Heaven, what are you “packing” to be ready?

1 Peter 1:9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

The Ice Cream Man

April 16, 2020


Mark Adams holds a special place in our hearts at SOS Events ministry. When he had a home in Florida, he would come over to the home office to “visit”.
One day he went out to the workshop where Tom (cofounder of SOS Events) and David were making displays.

Mark watched and said he had a better idea. Why not use metal shelf holders instead of wooden dowels to allow the doors to turn. That idea changed the way the displays were made and we use metal instead of wood today to make our displays.

Mark loved SOS Events and invited Tom and Carolyn to Kentucky to present SOS Events to his home church.

Mark was known as the “ ice cream man” in his hometown and took a SOS Events display board to witness to children when they came to buy ice cream.

We recently learned of his home going to Heaven. Jesus must have welcomed Mark. Well done thy good and faithful servant.

Psalm 116:15
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.

Are You Good Enough To Go To Heaven?

March 7, 2020

The Bible says “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” Romans 5:12

None of us are good enough to go to Heaven, but God loves us and sent His Son, Jesus, to die on a cross, to be buried and on the 3rd day arose from the dead. His sacrifice is the only way we can go to Heaven.

We must admit we have sinned.

Believe Jesus died, was buried and rose again.

Call on Jesus to forgive our sins, come into our hearts and invite Him to be our Savior.

If you haven’t done that, don’t wait. Do it now.

Shirley Riegel

February 25, 2020

Shirley Riegel is at home with the Lord. She passed from earth to Heaven yesterday, February 24.

Shirley was a faithful Christian, wife, mother and grandmother. She had love for winning people to the Lord with SOS Events Ministry. Don and Shirley were part of SOS Events from the beginning. They traveled from their home in Ohio to many different states leading people to the Lord and were a great encouragement to others to join the ministry.

This photo is Shirley with a young man who accepted the Lord as his Savior in Indiana several years ago. Her sweet spirit and love for others will be missed.

2 Corinthians 5:8

We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

Longing for Home

July 31, 2019

Have you ever been on a trip, in a hospital or just visiting but you are longing for home? There is an old saying “Home is where the heart is”. How true. We can be in any place and still feel at home if we are surrounded by people we love. As Christians we should be long for HOME. Our heavenly home where we shall see Jesus and be reunited with family and friends who have gone one before us. However, while we are still traveling this earth we do have our loved One Jesus, who is with us 24/7 no matter where we are. So, today, wherever you are you can feel at home with your Comforter and Friend Jesus but looking forward to the day when we will reach our Heavenly home.

Remembering Tom

May 14, 2019

Tom Curtis, cofounder of SOS Events Ministry, went home to be with his Lord 3 years ago today. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather but most of all he loved the Lord with all his heart. A tremendous soul winner. His goal was to see as many people accept Jesus as their Savior as he could possibly tell, then to teach and train others how to witness for the Lord. In spite of pain and physical illness he never failed to try to reach his goal and he witnessed to everyone he came in contact with until the day he left this earth to be with his Savior. SOS Events Ministry thrives today because of his vision and dedication. We miss him but are blessed to have had him in our lives.

2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
