Spring is Here!

March 20, 2018

The calendar says it is the first day of spring. Many of us have been waiting for it because winter has been hard. In northern areas it may not feel like spring yet, snow, ice and cold is still around and the forecast is calling for more. But, we look forward to spring and rejoice when the first flower comes up out of the soil. Christian life is like that. Sometimes life is hard and there seems no end in sight, but we can look to Jesus. He is the One who brings joy into our lives.

Psalms 32:11 Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.


The Tortoise and The Hare

March 9, 2018

The Strawberry Festival is a once a year “big” event. Only 3 more days to go. Please continue to pray for souls. However, we must not minimize the “smaller” regular events. The Plant City Flea Market is a great example. On Wednesday this week 17 precious soul came to know Jesus. There is a fable about a Tortoise (turtle) and the Hare. The hare (rabbit) is faster but the turtle is slow but steady. At the end of the race the turtle won. The Strawberry Festival is like the rabbit, many souls get saved in a short period of time, but the regular weekly event wins more souls by the end of the year. We are blessed to have the opportunity to witness at events both big and small.

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.

Pure Joy

March 7, 2018

Emma, A little girl, 7 years old, wanted to know how to be 100% sure she was going to Heaven. She came into the booth with her mother and listened intently as the soul winner explained the plan of salvation. Emma prayed and trusted Jesus as her Savior. When she got up to leave she actually was jumping for joy. Everyone in the booth smiled at the pure joy of a child who now knows she is going to Heaven.

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.

Strawberry Festival Begins

March 1, 2018

Strawberry Festival begins today. Please pray for good weather, the workers and most importantly that souls will be saved. The next 11 days will be life changing for the people who have opportunity to invite Jesus to be their Savior. Also, today is Senior Servants day for SOS Events. The ladies will be working diligently to get out the monthly newsletter. There are two other events that will take place in the next eleven days, also, so as you can see, we need your prayers.

1 Thessalonians 5:25 Brethren, pray for us.

The Scary Snake

February 22, 2018

There is a harmless black Snake that lives on the SOS Events property. He is about 5 ft long and can really frighten us if we come upon him suddenly. Yesterday, while transporting equipment to the Strawberry Festival to set up our display, we realized that the SOS Events van needed an oil change. We pulled into a fast oil change business and they took care of us right away. However, all of a sudden the young man under the van jumped out of the pit ( where the oil was drained). He started yelling and pointing under the van, “There’s a Cobra under the van.” A crowd of workers quickly appeared pointing to the van. Some were afraid, some thought it was funny and all of them wanted our van gone as soon as possible. They finished the job and even though we explained it was a harmless black snake they hurried as fast as possible to get it done. It reminds us that we do have a dangerous serpent, the devil, who will try to deceive us and cause us to sin. We should want him to be gone out of our lives as quickly as possible. The only One that can defeat him is Jesus.

Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Have a Blessed Valentine‚Äôs Day

February 14, 2018

If you have a Sweetheart to share Valentines Day with, you are blessed, but if you do not have a Spouse or special someone you are still blessed. You have the One who loves you more than anyone possibly could. His name is Jesus. Have a blessed Valentines Day.

1 John 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

True Love

February 10, 2018

In February we see advertisements on TV, in stores and everywhere featuring hearts and flowers and talk about love and Valentines. It is a great time for the card companies, florists and candy companies. Restaurants will have overflow crowds on February 14th. Many people confuse romance with true love. True love is caring for someone so much that you would be willing to give your life for that person. That is the love that Jesus had for us when He died on the cross to save us.

John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Prayer Request

February 8, 2018

The Bible says not to build upon sand. In the part of Florida where the SOS Events Office is located most of the soil is sand, causing us a problem, The office is made up of two job trailers that are connected together by a wooden platform. The back trailer contains Carolyn’s office and a work room for the machines that print the vinyl for the sign displays. Because there is a slight hill and recent rains have caused some erosion, that trailer is tipping. It is going to have to be leveled by a professional company as soon as possible. Please pray today that they can get here quickly and inexpensively. Until we can get it fixed it’s unsafe to be in that trailer. We need that trailer secured so we can finish projects for many upcoming events. Also, there has been some interior damage as the walls are buckling and so repairs will have to be made, which will also take time and money. We are thankful our spiritual house is built upon the Rock, Jesus. Thank you for your prayers.

Matthew 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

We Have A Big God

Giants in Your Life

January 11, 2018

Sometimes we have things in our lives that are overwhelming. Problems, illness, relationships, sin and other things that seem impossible to overcome. Can the giant in your life be defeated? Absolutely! Remember David and Goliath. David was young and only a Shepard but he had faith that God would defeat Goliath, this 9 foot tall giant. Armed with a slingshot and five stones and faith he killed the giant that plagued Israel. God brought the victory. You can have victory in your life over and “giant” you are facing. Give it to the Lord, have faith and victory can be yours.

1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
