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.

Personal Witnessing

June 7, 2016

Events are a great place to win people to the Lord and the focus of SOS Events ministry, but we must not neglect personal witnessing as well.

Yesterday, Carolyn Curtis had an opportunity to witness and lead a serviceman to the Lord. Carlos came to find out why her tv was not working correctly. When he finished, she asked him if he knew the 3 Things God Can Not Do, and he said, “no”.

She handed him a “3 Things” tract and went through it with him including the “ABC’s”.  (If you do not know the 3 things go to SOS home page and scroll down)

Carlos prayed, and accepted Jesus as his Savior. 

It is so important to take advantage of every opportunity to tell someone about Jesus. You may be the only Christian that a person comes in contact with. Allow the Holy Spirit to direct you to lost people and fill you with boldness and power to witness.


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.

Pastors Need Prayer

April 3, 2016

“Don’t put your Pastor on a pedestal where he can be knocked off, put him on your prayer list where he can be lifted up.”

Today most of us will be going to church to worship our Savior, and the Pastor has the responsibility to feed his flock, preach to the unsaved and lift up the broken-hearted. He needs your prayers. Pray for the filling of the Holy Spirit on your Pastor today. Put your Pastor’s name at the end of the following verse:

Romans 15:30 Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me;

Who Has Power?

March 11, 2016

The last reason Christians do no win souls according to an article by Lifeway.

We’ve forgotten our source of power.Lastly, we don’t evangelize because we’ve mistakenly put ourselves at the center of evangelism. For many of us, our fears, our frustrations, our inability to talk about Jesus stems from a man-centered view of salvation. We really think it is us, our ingenuity, our power, our technique that delivers a soul from death to life. But salvation is not work we accomplish, but a work of the Holy Spirit. It is God who “quickens” the dead heart (Ephesians 2:1). It is the work of the Father to draw people to his son (John 8:44).

This means that in obeying the Great Commission, we can’t fail. Our job is not to do the saving, but do the sharing. Our job is to simply be faithful in declaring the word to those who haven’t heard. We are the ones God is using to share his message with the world. There are no others. (Romans 10:14). But we can rest in God’s sovereignty, motivated by the knowledge that if we share the news, people will repent and put their faith in Christ.
If Jesus is real in us, if Jesus is real in the people we lead, sharing Christ will be a natural outflow that will burst forward into our friendships, our neighbors, and our coworkers. The mission of God won’t be something we do on Sundays, but will be a way of life.

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.

Pastors Need Prayer

February 28, 2016

“Don’t put your Pastor on a pedestal where he can get knocked off, put him on your prayer list where he can be lifted up.”

Today as you go to church pray for your pastor. He needs the power of the Holy Spirit and encouragement. D. L. Moody became a powerful evangelist because as he preached he had a group of people praying for him and thousands of people were saved though his ministry.

2 Thessalonians 1:11 Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:
