Joy of Soul Winning

March 18, 2018

There is absolutely complete joy in winning souls. Yesterday, SOS Events had three volunteers go to an event in Seffner, Fl. It was not a huge event but the people that were there were friendly and the children were having a great time. A young mother came to the booth with her beautiful little daughter. She had been wondering how to be sure she would go to Heaven but did not know what she had to do to be sure. She recently had purchased a Bible trying to find the answer. When she sat down with the soul winner she was so happy to hear how her sins could be forgiven. After she invited Jesus to be her Savior the joy on her face was a blessing to see.

James 5:20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.


Pure Joy

March 7, 2018

Emma, A little girl, 7 years old, wanted to know how to be 100% sure she was going to Heaven. She came into the booth with her mother and listened intently as the soul winner explained the plan of salvation. Emma prayed and trusted Jesus as her Savior. When she got up to leave she actually was jumping for joy. Everyone in the booth smiled at the pure joy of a child who now knows she is going to Heaven.

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.

Remaining Fruit

March 5, 2018

Some people are skeptical about Salvations at the SOS Events booth. God is the One who does the saving. The volunteers are doing what He commanded by telling people how to be saved. Bob a young teenager was at the Strawberry Festival a few years ago, where he saw a “3 Things God Can Not Do” tract that someone had thrown out. He read it, asked Jesus to be his Savior and started attending a youth group at a local church. Bob is still serving the Lord today. This story is evidence that God uses the faithful team members of SOS Events Ministry to bring people to the Lord. He promises blessings and that our “fruit” will remain.

John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

Weeping Lady

March 3, 2018

Yesterday in the SOS Events booth at Strawberry Festival, a woman (we will call her Sue) and her husband came over to see the “3 Things God Can Not Do”. As she talked with the volunteer at the display she was openly weeping. She was greatly distressed because one of her family members had taken her life just a short while ago. Sue finally consented to come back to the soul winning table and talk with the soul winner. Still crying she listened as the soul winner told her of the love that Jesus had for her and that she needed the peace and comfort that only Jesus can give. Hearing the plan of salvation, Sue and her husband both prayed and invited Jesus to be their Savior. Immediately, the tears stopped and a small smile came across Sue’s face. The peace of God had touched her heart. What a blessing to take part in a Ministry where lives are changed. The SOS Events slogan is “A life saving ministry” and we see the evidence at every event.

Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

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.
