TV Repair

October 19, 2017


This is Shawn, a TV technician, who came to check out the service on the Curtis home cable box.  As Shawn was waiting for the box to reboot, Carolyn asked him if he knew the “3 Things God Can Not Do”. He did not know. Then she went through the Bible verses with him. Titus 1:2, Malachi 3:6 and John 3:3-5. Shawn admitted he was a sinner, believed on the Lord Jesus Christ and called upon Jesus to be his Savior. What a blessing. (This is the second man who has accepted Jesus when they came to fix this problem)

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

Young Evangelist

August 1, 2017

SOS Events has teams of workers in several states. In New Jersey the team is working various events throughout the year. Recently in the report came these two testimonies written on the decision cards.

Eric, age 12, wrote: I am 100 % sure that I will go to heaven. Jesus died for my sins. (Eric was quick to become an evangelist and brought his mom Andrea to us). See Andrea’s testimony below.

Andrea, age 28, wrote: 100% sure I’d go to heaven. I trust God. God died on the cross for me.
1 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.

Grandmother’s Prayers

March 7, 2017

Several people that were saved at Strawberry Festival told the soul winner that their Grandmother had been praying for them. One young man, Samuel, came in the booth with his Grandmother and after he prayed he looked at her. Tears were flowing down her face. Samuel asked her, “Why are you crying?” She answered, “I have been praying for you to be saved.”


2 Timothy 1:5 When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also.

Testimony from Past Event

March 3, 2017

One of the blessings of being in the same event year after year is the people who stop by the booth to give a testimony of the blessing they received from SOS Events in years passed. Yesterday, a woman stopped by the booth at  Strawberry Festival to thank the workers and said her daughter had gotten saved last year. She told the worker how happy she is to know her daughter will be with her in Heaven. She will bring her son to the booth in the future when he is a little older so he will understand how to be saved. Soul winning at events has a lasting effect on people.  We Praise the Lord for giving us the opportunity to witness at events.

Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

Clean Heart

October 27, 2016

13 children and 2 parents where are saved at the Hendersonville Christian School fall Festival last evening. SOS events always gets name, address, and age on a decision card for follow-up. Then that convert is asked to write a testimony on the back of the card.

One little girl named Anna, eight years old wrote on the back of her card, “I feel clean.” That is exactly what Jesus does for us when we get saved. He gives us a clean heart.

Psalms 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

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.

New Life

September 22, 2016

Patty Mills wrote; One of my favorite salvation stories is when a guy 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 and after his prayer he said (matter-of-factly): “You know, I’ve been thinking about not drinking as much.” To which our soulwinner replied, “I like sweet tea. It’s pretty good.” HA! 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. 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.) Love it!

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.

All the volunteers did a wonderful job and God blessed their efforts.This picture is some of the Alabama team, working with the Faith Riders, (A Christian motorcycle group), Friday night. There were five decisions for Christ.

2 Thessalonians 1:11 Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:

Yard Sale in Alabama

June 25, 2016


A salvation while putting up a yard sale sign? Yes and amen!! Handed a man who was walking a tract and bottled water and Carl went through the 3 Things God Can Not Do and the ABC’s of salvation with him and he accepted Christ! Will follow up with him with an encouraging note and a home visit. Praise the Lord!  

Salvation Testimony

June 13, 2016

 A brother and a sister were walking by us along with their Mom’s boyfriend and decided to stop and hear the three things God cannot do. They were vendors, a few spots down from us. The dad permitted them to talk to us. The kids were so sweet and right away accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior.  Later, they brought Mom to us and she spoke Portugese and very little English. She was also sweet and conversed with us and accepted Lord Jesus. She spoke her testimony in a video. Praise God for her testimony.
This is a testimony from Columbus Farmers Market in New Jersey. Praise the Lord for new salvations. The Bible tells us to go into all the world, but at events He sends people from other countries to the SOS Events booth.

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