Do You Have 2 Birthdays?

June 1, 2021

Today is the birthday of Carolyn Curtis, cofounder of SOS Events Ministry. But this is not the most important birthday in her life.

Her second birthday is much more significant. That is the day she asked Jesus to forgive her sin, and accepted Him as her Savior.

She realized that Jesus died on the cross was buried, and was resurrected. He paid the penalty for her sins.

Since that day over 60 years ago, Jesus has been with her, guided her paths and has brought true joy into her life through the good times and the hard times.

The best gift she ever received was being born again.

You can have this wonderful gift also. Salvation is given freely to all who believe and invite Jesus to be their Savior. You must have 2 birthdays to have a life of peace and joy and assurance of Heaven.

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. John3:3

A Favorite Salvation Story

February 1, 2021

One of my favorite salvation stories is when a man brought his beer in one hand and his cigarette in the other hand into the booth to find out about the “3 things God cannot do.”

The Holy Spirit led him to accept Christ as His Lord and Savior for the very first time that day. After he prayed he said (matter-of-factly): “You know, I’ve been thinking about not drinking as much.”

The soulwinner replied, “I like sweet tea. It’s pretty good.”

Love that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ and how God immediately works through the Holy Spirit to change our hearts once we give them to Him. You don’t have to change and get all dressed up to come to God. Come to God and He’ll do all the changing needed.

NOTE: This guy was NOT drunk. We do not give the gospel presentation to anyone who appears to be mentally/physically/emotionally unable to understand the gospel presentation. Just give them tracts and pray for them.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

What is your story?

January 21, 2021

Everyone who is saved has a story. How did you come to know the Savior, Jesus?

There are many testimonies that have been told:

A man who went by a church, heard the music and walked in, asked the usher how he could be saved.

The little girl who went to church and when the alter call was given followed the soul winner out of curiosity and trusted Jesus as her Savior.

The man whose lost his son in a tragic accident. Before his last breath, the son asked his Dad, will I see you in Heaven?

The person who was about to commit suicide and picked up a tract, read it and was wonderfully saved.

What is your story? You need to tell it. Write it down. Tell it to someone in person or through social media. Your story could touch someone’s heart and be the very thing that will cause them to accept Jesus.

Answered Prayer

October 31, 2020

God answers prayer. At the Fall Festival at Tabernacle Christian School in Bradenton, Fl, God blessed the SOS Events Team with 6 salvation decisions.

Even before the booth was completely set up, 3 boys came over to see the “3 Things God Can Not Do”.

They had a chore to do so they promised to come back.

Carolyn stepped away from the booth and that is when the trio came back. However, they did not want to talk to anyone but her, so, they waited.

They came back to the soul winning table with Carolyn and trusted Jesus as their Savior.

They all said they attended Tabernacle Christian School. When the Principal stopped by a little later, he was given the decision cards for the 3 boys.

The Principal said, “This one is my grandson, we prayed for him this morning. God answered prayer the very day He was asked!

Alice, Glenn and Dena were faithful to witness at the event and God blessed again with 3 more teens who accepted Jesus. They were not from the Christian School, but lived in the neighborhood.

I John 5:14&15 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

0%

October 29, 2020

At the Plant City Flea Market, one of the SOS volunteers showed a lady the “3 Things God Can Not Do”.

Then ask the question, “Are you 50, 75, or 100% sure if you died a day you go to heaven?”

She answered, “0%.”

The soul winner proceeded to tell her that she could be 100% sure, and she decided to go back to the table and find out how she could be sure.

She trusted Jesus as her Savior, and was so excited that she was going to receive a Bible Study in the mail. Then she asked if she could have Bible study sent to her three children.

There was much rejoicing with her and the other volunteers over her decision. Praying her whole family will be saved.

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

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:

Trunk or Treat!

Cotton Festival

October 16, 2019

Cotton Festival in Eclectic Alabama was a first time event for SOS Events Ministry and it was amazing!! Within 10 minutes of being set up Mr. Don came back and gave his life to Jesus!! He is 72 years old and is now born again!! We talked to 356 people at the 3 Things God Cannot Do board and gave out 405 tracts. We all had great conversations with some really special people and know God had us right where we were supposed to be. 3 people accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and 8 received assurance and now they know they’re going to Heaven. 4 others were not ready to commit their lives to Christ but they will be prayed for and receive a Bible study. It is always a wonderful day when you can go out and share the Gospel and show the love of Christ with SOS Events Ministry.
