Good News!

October 7, 2021

Tired of all the bad news on TV, radio or media. Disasters, war, sickness, accidents and death!

GOOD NEWS! We do not have to worry or be concerned about any of it. There is a future for everyone who have put their faith and trust in the Lord Jesus. He died on the cross and rose again so that we can go to Heaven.

This world and all the woes are just temporary. We have a home in Heaven with no more tears, sickness, sorrow or death! That is God’s promise.

It’s Not What We Do, It’s What He’s Done

September 4, 2021

We think what we do will get us to Heaven, but it’s not what we do, it’s what Jesus did when he died on the cross. He paid the price for ALL our sin.

Nothing we do, all our “good” work will never be enough to have our sin forgiven.

We owe everything to Him. When we work doing something for Him, it is out of gratitude and our love for Jesus. It does not count to get us to Heaven. Only trusting in Jesus alone will give us eternal life.

Ephesians 2:8-9
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast

Just Passing Through

January 18, 2021

There is a Christian song, ” This World is Not My Home, I’m just passing through.” We as Christians are traveling through life in this world. Sometime we have joys, hardships and challenges. Just like traveling for vacation, business or family occasions, trips can have ups and downs. Once our trip is over and we return home we are happy that our travels are over.

The same holds true on our journey toward heaven. What a joy that will be when we finally reach our Heavenly home. So as we travel through life keep our destination in mind. Joy awaits us in Heaven.

John 14:2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

Jesus Loves Little Children

Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

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.
