Strawberry Festival Scheduled 2021

October 19, 2020

Carolyn Curtis was waiting in her car to get the oil changed. One of the mechanics said, “Don’t you park your car in my yard at Strawberry Festival?”

Carolyn answered, “Yes.

Then they talked of the upcoming Florida Strawberry Festival in March of 2021. It is scheduled to take place. What a blessing.

Strawberry Festival is the largest event in Florida that SOS Events Ministry participates in, and we are so thankful that it is scheduled. Many events have been cancelled or postponed because of the coronavirus, but Strawberry Festival will take place, Lord willing.

Pray that many people will be saved. Also, for volunteers to work in the SOS Events booth.

New Opportunity

September 14, 2020

The only thing between me and insanity is Jesus Christ. Pastor John Marlow

Carolyn Curtis and Alice Thomas had the opportunity to go to Bradenton yesterday to present SOS Events Ministry to the Bradenton Gospel Tabernacle. Pastor John Marlow has been the Pastor of that church for 60 years.

The goal of SOS Events is to see souls saved and the heartbeat of Pastor Marlow is evangelism.

The people were friendly and excited to hear about the “3 Things God Can Not Do”. SOS Events is looking forward to a new team in the Bradenton, Florida area in the near future.

1 Corinthians 3:9
For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.

Personal Witnessing

July 21, 2020

Patricia, one of our SOS Events Leaders in Alabama, called the office with exciting news. She had the opportunity to witness to her 11 year old grandson, Philip.

He was not sure that he was going to Heaven. Philip had not been ready to be saved even though he has Godly parents, attends church regularly and goes to a Christian school.

Patricia talked with him and then used the “3 Things God Can Not Do” tract to explain to him the need of asking Jesus to forgive his sin. He finally understood, invited Jesus to be his Savior. He was ready!

At this time when events are few, we must be looking for individuals who may need salvation. Personal witnessing to family, friends and whoever we come in contact with is our responsibility.

1 Peter 3:15 – But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and [be] ready always to [give] an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

SOS Events Today

July 11, 2020

In New York State today, sos Event team is at a yard sale. Most big events are cancelled, but they are taking opportunity at a small one to win souls.

Also, today SOS Events Ohio team has a Car Show. Please pray for both of these events. 1. People will attend. 2. Holy Spirit power for the SOS Events Teams. 3. Many people will be saved.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Move Forward

June 12, 2020

SOS Events Ministry office has been open throughout this whole time of stay at home directives because of coronavirus. We have not had any events or gatherings, however, there have been some wonderful opportunities for planning what is to come in the future.

God has sent us some new people. 2 new teen girls to help in the office, a new missionary couple, and an opportunity to add the state of Mississippi to our growing ministry.

When things do not go as we plan, the Lord does not want us to stop doing His will or calling for SOS Events. This time has been a time of planning, and growing, in spite of social distancing.

We are praying that events will soon open and once again our team members can be out witnessing to the lost.

Deuteronomy 5:32 Ye shall observe to do therefore as the Lord your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.

Flea Market Open

May 21, 2020

Alice and Mark ( one of our SOS volunteers) had opportunity to go to the Plant City, Florida Flea Market yesterday.

The first time in over two months that SOS Events was able to go to an event. The crowd was a little sparse but God blessed with one young girl trusting Jesus as her Savior. Praise the Lord!

It is a joy to be able to go to events once again to witness. Pray with us for more events to open all over the USA and beyond.

Mark-16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

New Intern for SOS Events

April 28, 2020

This is Stephanie. She is not in school because of the coronavirus so she is working with SOS Events a few mornings each week. (We are using social distancing)

Welcome to the office, Stephanie. We are happy to have you.

SOS Events has an intern program where young people that are in 7th grade or older can get experience working in a ministry. They work in the office and sometimes outside. When they are older and apply for jobs they have a reference and experience needed to secure good employment. They also see how a ministry works and have learned how to witness and win souls to the Lord. There have been at least 8 girls that have worked with SOS Events in our home office and many who work with other teams, especially in Alabama going to events to learn how to witness. Boys are part of this program, also.

I Timothy 4:12 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

Hello April

April 1, 2020

Many of us have to stay in during the month of April. This is a time that we can use to make us blossom! We can draw closer to God by reading the Bible more. We can encourage others with a phone call or note. We can have time to work on a hobby. Some people are using this time for doing projects around the house.

Take this time to look up to better things to come.

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”
Psalms 16:11, KJV

Strawberry Festival in Plant City, FL

January 22, 2020

SOS Events largest event in Florida is the Strawberry Festival in Plant City. It is coming up quickly. In the past 17 years the SOS Events volunteers have worked 4 hour shifts, but this year the shifts are only 3 hours long. This is a big change.

You can help. Pray for volunteers and that many people will be saved, If you live in the area or will be near Plant City during the Festival, volunteer for a 3 hour shift. If you cannot volunteer donations for extra tickets would be greatly appreciated. Call the office 813-494-7512 or go to SignUpGenius to get the time you want to work. All volunteers must be trained. Several classes are available.
