Newborn Babies

September 22, 2017

Most of the time it’s exciting to hear of the birth of a new baby. We shower them with love and kisses and take care of them, feed them and welcome them into our family. But there are babies born who are unwanted and unloved and not cared for properly. Children are a responsibility. New Christian converts are babes in Christ and should be loved and cared for, not left to themselves to grow in the Lord. They are our responsibility. This is why it is so important to follow up on people who have been saved. If you know a new Christian, take that responsibility seriously and invite them to church, Bible studies and teach them to follow the Lord. SOS Events Ministry tries to follow up with every new Christian that makes a decision by sending a Bible study to each one, and then the local church can visit and see them grow.

1 Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

21 Decisions at Yard Sale

April 2, 2017

21 decisions for Christ yesterday at Eastmont Baptist Church’s Yard Sale! Praise the Lord! Pray that these new Christians will be in church today. A Churchyard Event (any event on church property) is a great opportunity not only to win souls but to get them to come to that church because they are already familiar with the church facilities.

Luke 15:10  Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.

Praise of Salvation

February 2, 2017

Wednesday, at the local farmer’s flea market, some of the SOS workers shared the plan of salvation using the Three Things God Cannot Do…. 1) God Cannot Lie   2) God Cannot Change and  3) God Cannot Let Anyone Into Heaven Unless They Are Born Again.  Praise the Lord for the 6 people who trusted in Jesus as their Savior.

I Thessalonians 5:9 (KJV) For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.

Blessing for a New Christian 

September 27, 2016

It is so great to hear what the Lord does for a new Christian. At The SOS Events booth in Pennsylvania, recently, a mother and a boy about 12 years old were saved. The next day they were both in church. This is the mother’s testimony;

At the auction on Saturday there was a drum set that my son really wanted. He had saved $15 to buy this drum set. The bidding started, he proudly bid up to his $15 and a lady in the crowd quickly overbid him. His disappointment was evident on his face, he did not cry but everyone could tell how disappointed he was.

There was a man in the crowd that started bidding against the lady, and soon the price had risen to $100. The lady stopped bidding and the drum set was given to the man. He turned to the young boy and gave him the drum set.

The mother’s comment was that nothing like that has ever happened to her family. She was so excited that she and her son have been saved and immediately the Lord brought blessings into their lives. She told many people at church that Sunday about the blessings that came from the Lord.

John 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

Do you ever get discouraged? Do you wonder why something is happened in your life that you don’t understand?
That is exactly what happened yesterday to Tom Curtis. When he awoke he found the vaccum pump that is on his leg to help a wound heal was not working. Just the day before the home health nurse had come to change the dressing and everything was fine when she left. Now an alarm went off and nothing worked. After doing everything in the instruction book to solve the problem there was nothing left to do but call for another nurse to come and fix it. Discouraged and wondering why, there was nothing that Tom could do but pray and trust the Lord.
About two hours later, in walked a new Home healthcare nurse, whose name is John. John changed the tubing on the pump and everything worked fine. Tom, never letting an opportunity to witness go by, asked John if he knew for sure he was going to go to heaven.

John said he did not know, but that just two days ago another patient had asked the same question. Tom told John that God was working on his heart and it’s time for him to trust in Jesus. John agreed and in just a few minutes accepted Jesus as his Savior. As you can see from the picture both Tom and John are happy about that decision. 

Discouragement turned to joy and complete understanding why God allowed a trial to come into Tom’s life.

 2 Timothy 4:5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

SOS Events is blessed with people who have various gifts. Some are blessed with mechanical skills, some with organizational ability, some have the gift of teaching, a few preachers and evangelists. All who come with the ministry have a desire to win souls.

The newest member of the Florida team is Yolanda. Not only does she have a desire to win souls, she is bilingual and is translating SOS Events training materials into Spanish which will be a great tool to enlarge the growing Spanish ministry of SOS. She is a willing worker and will also be a part of Senior Servants who help with the monthly newsletter and tract ministry. Her first event was this week at the Plant City Flea Market where she had the opportunity to see souls come to JESUS. She is the lady on the left holding the small “3Things God Can Not Do” display board. The other lady in the photo is a new convert.

1 Corinthians 12:4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.


Home Health Nurse Saved

May 18, 2015

Tom is home from the hospital and a nurse comes to the house to treat the wound on his foot. Paul was one of the nurses. 

He said he is one of only 6% of all the nurses who are male and Tom was blessed to have him come to the house. As they talked the conversation turned to the subject of salvation. Tom as usual handed Paul a tract and asked him if he had ever seen the “3 Things God Cannot Do”

Paul said he had never heard about the 3 things.

Tom told him: 1. God cannot lie. Titus 1:2.    2. God cannot change. Malachi 3:6.   3. God cannot let anyone in heaven unless they are born again. John 3:3-5.

Then he asked Paul if he had ever been saved. When Paul answered “No” Tom proceeded to explain the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.

Paul bowed his head and invited JESUS to be his Savior.

Romans 8:38 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.


Victory at Strawberry Festival

March 9, 2015

The little girl in this photo interpreted from Spanish to English so that her Mom and Dad could understand and be saved. She and her whole family accepted Christ. Mom and little brother were too shy to get in the photo but Dad was happy to stand with his young daughter to have their picture taken. This family of four will now spend eternity in Heaven.
There are so many stories of salvation to tell from Strawberry Festival 2015.
Eleven days. Early on rain and cold, then sickness and cancellation of some volunteers. But God had the victory and a total of 235 decisions were recorded. All of these converts will receive a Bible study and will have their names given to local churches in the area for follow up.
Praise the Lord for another year that SOS Events had the privilege of Serving Our Savior at Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Fl.

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