SOS Events 

October 28, 2017

A perfect illustration to show what SOS Events Ministry does. 

1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

Prayer Requests

October 4, 2017

This is SOS Events busiest time of year and we need your prayers. Today the Plant City, Florida Flea Market, where volunteers are busy soul winning. This weekend there are Events in Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky and Indiana. Please pray for the workers and new trainees as they witness to win souls. Pray for Holy Spirit filling for each of them. Pray for travel as many go miles from their homes to win people to Christ. Also, pray for the attendees that they will be saved. The Results will be posted next week.

Ephesians 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Power or Programs?

September 29, 2017

“We are too busy to pray, and so we are too busy to have power. We have a great deal of activity, but we accomplish little. Many services, but few conversions; much machinery, but few results.” – R.A. Torrey

Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Witnessing and Salvation

July 23, 2017

Praise the Lord for the 32 saved at the Genesee County Fair in Batavia, NY. Also, 315 people were witnessed to at the display. Pray The Holy Spirit will continue to convict these who stopped by but did not make the decision to trust Jesus. 

Acts 2:37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

Serving Our Savior in 2017

January 2, 2017

SOS Events ministry is looking forward to a great year in 2017. We are praying for more souls to be saved, new team leaders and many christians to come and be trained to win souls. 

2016 ended with almost 2000 recorded decisions for Christ. These are people who came to the booth at a flea market, fair, races, car shows or other events. We get name, address, age and other information so we can follow up on these new converts. In addition to these results there were many decisions that were not recorded. People we witnessed to that would not give us the information we desired or were handed a tract and said they would pray later.

We totally depend on the Holy Spirit to work on the hearts of people we witness to. We sow and water and God gives the increase. Praise the Lord for a successful year that has passed, and we are praying for Him to give an even greater harvest in 2017. Please join us in prayer for a spectacular new year.

1 Corinthians 3:7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.

Peace and Joy

December 26, 2016

Christmas is over, the presents are opened, leftovers are in the fridge and the cleanup and putting away of decorations has begun. Many people feel a letdown after the long awaited day is over. However for the Christian, the joy of knowing Jesus, not as a baby in a manger, but as our  Lord and Savior brings an inner peace and joy that only we can know.

May the sprit of “peace on earth, goodwill toward men” be with you today and throughout the year everyday.

Romans 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Ham Festival

October 1, 2016

Today one of SOS Events new teams in Tennesee is having their first community event. The Ham Festival will be in full swing in just a few hours. Please pray for souls to be saved, workers to be filled with the Holy Spirit and good weather. 

This team led by Bill Newsome did a wonderful job at their churchyard event where the church members were there to pray and encourage. A community event will be totally different for them. They have to rely on God, each other and the prayers of Christians who will not be with them at the event. They are excited and looking forward to see what God will do through them.

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.

New Life

September 22, 2016

Patty Mills wrote; One of my favorite salvation stories is when a guy brought his beer in one hand and his cigarette in the other hand into the booth to find out about the 3 things God cannot do. The Holy Spirit led him to accept Christ as His Lord and Savior for the very first time that day and after his prayer he said (matter-of-factly): “You know, I’ve been thinking about not drinking as much.” To which our soulwinner replied, “I like sweet tea. It’s pretty good.” HA! Love that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ and how God immediately works through the Holy Spirit to change our hearts once we give them to Him. Don’t have to change and get all dressed up to come to God. Come to God and He’ll do all the changing needed. (NOTE: This guy was NOT drunk. We do not give the gospel presentation to anyone who appears to be mentally/physically/emotionally unable to understand the gospel presentation. Just give them tracts and pray for them.) Love it!

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Fanny Crosby-No Excuses

July 12, 2016


Fanny Crosby was blind from a small baby but never allowed her blindness to stop her from Serving Her Savior. She wrote the words to hundreds of hymns under her own name as well as pen names.

She was a teacher, author, wife and Godly, Christian. What a testimony to what one person can do who trusts fully in the Lord and allows the Holy Spirit to work through her.

Sometimes we have excuses why we cannot serve God. Illness, lack of money, job, family and many others. In the Bible a man used the excuse of having to bury his father. (Matthew 8:21) “What is your excuse? Decide to be effective for the Lord no matter what and get busy for Him. 

John 12:26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.

Little Children

June 30, 2016

A young boy, William, 7 years old got saved at Daily Vacation Bible School recently. He was so excited and went home and told his little 3 year old brother, Isaac, that that he needed to give his heart to Jesus.

Isaac replied, “I will give my heart to Jesus someday but I need it right now.” (William and Isaac are the Curtis’ great grandsons)

Children, especially when very young, sometimes do not understand the terminology we use to present the Gospel. Just as a reminder to those of us who witness to make sure that the person we witness to understands how to be saved. 

The simple “3 Things God Can Not Do” is a wonderful way to witness to older children and adults but when talking with younger children we need to make sure they understand. Sometimes it is better to give a tract or witness to the parent and trust God to bring the child to Himself when the child is a little older. Always ask the Holy Spirit to direct you when witnessing.

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.
