New Direction

March 29, 2017

Beka is a talented young woman who has worked for SOS Events for several years, in the office and as traveling companion to Carolyn Curtis for the last year. God has now given Beka a new direction in her life. A desire to become a pilot. Please pray for her as she studies and works toward her goal. We will miss her in the office but know that God can use her in a great way.

Proverbs 3:5&6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Temple of Heaven

February 20, 2017

Our trip to China was exciting and wonderful, but the one thing that stuck in my mind was the visit to the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. It was very beautiful but sad at the same time. Hundreds of people coming to worship and leave gifts to the image of Buddha. China is a Country with millions of people who do not even know who Jesus is. Pray for the salvation the people of China.

Philippians 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

Diana’s Testimony

February 15, 2017

41 years ago I trusted the Lord as my Savior. Salvation is freely offered. It has been paid for through the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross. All you have to do is admit you are a sinner, believe that Jesus died for you and that he is giving you this opportunity to trust in him, then call on Him to come into your life. John 3:16 says, 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. Romans 3:23 tells us that For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Romans 5:8, But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.Romans 6:23,  For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. And Romans 10:9 says, That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  That is a promise from God.

A Special Find

June 14, 2016

“God Will Carry You Through” is the title of a book by Max Lucado. Not necessarily one of my favorite authors but I found this book on my bookshelf with a personal note from my husband, Tom Curtis, who went home to be with the Lord one month ago today. (This book sat on the shelf for 2 years and I never picked it up until today)

How special and wonderful is the Lord. The note said, “The Lord showed me this book. Read it before you write the blog. I love you. Tom

How perfect. The blessing is to know That God will carry me through and He will carry you through each problem and difficulty in life. The Bible has so many wonderful verses to help in every situation. All we have to do is trust Him and claim the promises in His Word.

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Answered Prayer Plus

November 20, 2015

I needed a glass insert for my microwave as it had gotten broken. Guests are coming and it was needed right away. No time to order one from the manufacturing company. What to do? Pray and ask for wisdom to find one.

Lighthouse, a local thrift store, came to mind when I prayed. When I entered the store, the first thing I saw was Tom, one of SOS Events workers, with a 3 Things God Can Not Do display board witnessing to people. He was talking and I did not want to interrupt so I asked a store worker for help to find my insert. There was only one in the store and she pointed it out to me. These inserts are hard to find and sell out immediately she told me.

Now Tom was not busy so I stopped to talk to him. Noticing that his display board could use some repair, I went to the car for a replacement that we had in the trunk for another event but had not needed. When I returned with the new display, Tom was talking to a lady who was interested in SOS Events. We exchanged information and a new opportunity for SOS Events to go to a children’s home where the woman worked, to speak and teach young people about Jesus.

An appointed time. Had I not listened to that still small voice and gone to Lighthouse I would have missed a great opportunity for SOS Events.

Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Preach the Word

October 23, 2015

Tom Curtis is always a witness for the Lord. Myra is a sweet young woman who is in housekeeping at the hospital. True to form Tom witnessed to her when he first got to the hospital. She trusted in Jesus and was excited to learn she  would get a Bible study in the mail in a week or two.

The wait for his surgery was several hours and while sitting in the waiting room Myra saw me and came over to give me a hug. She was still talking about her salvation and wanted to be sure she sees Tom before he is released to go home.

Please continue to pray for him as recovery is not going as well as we would like.

2 Timothy 4:2  Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

  

New Things

September 28, 2015

Two new things are on the SOS Events website that you may have missed. The “3 Things God Can Not Do” is in Spanish on the menu tab Espanol. That has been something that has been needed as the Spanish Division of the ministry has expanded greatly in the last year.

Another addition is “Tom’s Testimony” on the Testimony page. If you have not heard or read how SOS Events founder was saved it is worth a few minutes of your time to read his testimony. God has used this story all over the USA to reach people for Jesus Christ.

To God be the Glory for the new blessings that He pours out on SOS Events. 

Psalms 68:19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. 

Testimony

August 26, 2015

Everyone who works with SOS Events Ministry gives us their testimony in writing.

One young man told us he didn’t have a testimony. We ask him if he was saved, was he born again?

He said yes he was saved and he knew for sure he was on his way to heaven.

This is his story:

One Sunday he was walking by a church and heard music. He had been thinking about some of the things that he had done that he was sorry for and he felt guilty in his heart. He decided to go in the church to find out if he could be forgiven.

An usher was standing inside the door and asked the young man if he could help him. 

“Yes, the young man said, I need to be forgiven.”

The usher took the young man into a little room where he explained the plan of salvation and the young man was wonderfully saved.

No testimony? That is one of the greatest testimonies that we have heard.

Do you have a testimony you would like to share with others? We would love to hear it. Send us an email and we may post it or put it in our monthly newsletter. Info@sosevents.org.

Testimony and Invitation

July 21, 2015

When I was 12 years old, the pastor came to our house to ask if I would be baptized with my sister and cousin as they didn’t want to do that without me. He asked me if I ever asked Jesus in my heart and I told him no, but I would be baptized so my sister and cousin would. The pastor told me to come down the isle Sunday and someone would pray with me then they would schedule the baptism. SO I did, and I prayed only to do what I needed to do so my sister and cousin would be baptized. Years later, I questioned my salvation because it wasn’t of my own will that sought Jesus but out of duty. I did not come to Jesus until I was 18. Yes, I can give you dates, times and places but I do know that the first time I prayed was not real, it was not me seeking Jesus but the approval to get baptized. Diana

If you are not 100% sure when you die you would go to heaven, you need to make sure of yourself salvation.

You must admit you are a sinner. Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Believe that Jesus died on the cross, was buried, and rose again. Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Then call upon the name of the Lord. Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Lord Jesus, I admit I am a sinner. I believe you died on the cross for forgiveness of my sins. I ask that you forgive my sins, come into my heart and make my life new. I receive you as my Savior. Thank you Jesus. Amen
