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

Grandmother’s Testimony

April 17, 2015

“I am so excited tonight that I wanted to share with you. Tonight I was able to lead my grandson to the Lord. Thank God for SOS.

Your friend in Christ”

This email was received this week from a Grandmother who learned the simple way to present the Gospel with the 3 Things God Can Not Do. 

Many CHRISTIANS struggle with how to witness especially to family members. It is easy to tell others and this method works. Knowing what key questions to ask is very important. The Holy Spirit does the convicting but He uses us to do the telling. 

If you need help on how to witness to your family or friends watch the training videos on the website and you can order the “3 Things” tracts. You CAN win souls to JESUS. Boldness to proclaim the Gospel can be yours.

Ephesians 6:19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

Children’s Hymn

September 29, 2014

Jesus Loves Me, This I Know
Jesus loves me! this I know,
For the Bible tells me so;
Little ones to Him belong,
They are weak but He is strong.

CHORUS: Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells so.

This morning I awoke thinking of my young grandchildren and praying for them. Most of them do not live near me but I can have an influence on their lives by praying each day for them.
My grandmother prayed for me, sang to me and was a great influence on my life. Many years after her death I was saved and this song “Jesus Loves Me” was one of the hymns that would run through my mind even before I found a church to attend because she sang it to me as a small child.
I am thankful for the great hymns of the faith, even as a great grandmother, it lifts my spirit to hear them.

If you have a need for one of your family call Tom and he will pray with you.

Pray for One Another

September 5, 2014

Tom is always willing to pray for others. Today, I am asking prayer for him. His recovery from pneumonia has been slow and he needs a healing touch from The Lord. Join with me and others for his complete healing.
If you need prayer call Tom 813-784-8242 or email tom@ sosevents.org.
Thank you.

James 5:16
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Special Blessing

August 30, 2014

Stone! Piles of stone that needed to be spread out in front of the property. We tried to hire someone to come and spread it but no one was willing to work.
Tom has not been feeling well so he could not do it, so everyday for over a week I would go out and do my best but could only move about six buckets a day. We are in our 70’s and things are not as easy as they once were.
I was getting a little discouraged when one evening the phone rang.
One of my grandsons, Justin, said, “Grandma, The Lord put you on my heart, is there anything I can do for you.”
Once again, God showed me of His loving care for His children. Justin has 4 children and a full time job,so we rarely see him because he is a busy man.
Yesterday, he and his wife came over and he worked on that stone. Before noon everything was in place.
We are so thankful, first to The Holy Spirit for prompting Justin to call and then for the obedience and work of this grandson. We are blessed.

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