Faithful Volunteers

July 17, 2019

SOS Events Ministry is Blessed to have many faithful volunteers. Shirley and Doug Black have traveled from The Finger Lake area of New York to Batavia to help with training last Sunday and then work at the Genesee County Fair all week. But, that is not all…. they winter in Florida and take part in many tradings and events there. What a blessing to have this dedicated couple as part of SOS Events Ministry.

Testimony from Patty Mills, SOS Events Leader in Alabama

July 16, 2019

God gave me the privilege of leading a young lady to Christ and leading her sister and friend in a prayer of rededication using SOS Events (ABCs of salvation) while participating in #ServeDay19 with many other servants. These sweet souls are being followed up on and discipled by their pastor Lieutenant Brian Farrington of the Salvation Army Church, COTH’s ministers and SOS Home Office. They will also receive tons of prayer from all and free age appropriate Bible studies through the mail for as long as they want them. I thank God for SOS Events – Carolyn Curtis, Dale Brown, Dorothy Brown and other mentors in that ministry for seeing the need to train and equip and encourage the saints to be sensitive to the Spirit and then bold in intentionally sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with all.

Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Power to Be a Soul Winner

July 13, 2019

When SOS Events volunteers go to an event to witness and win souls, the most important thing that they must do is rely on the Holy Spirit to bring people to the booth and then bring conviction into their hearts so the hear and accept the gospel. All the work, prayer and preparation will come to nothing without the Holy Spirit’s Power.

Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Celebrating 4th of July

July 5, 2019

The best way to celebrate the 4th of July is to witness at an event and to see people find true personal freedom from sin by accepting Jesus as their Savior. Some of The Florida team did exactly that this year. It is wonderful that children and adults come to events, not expecting to have their lives changed and then they come to the SOS Events booth and find salvation. A true reason to celebrate not only on Independence Day but any day of the year.

Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

New SOS Events Team In Ohio

July 1, 2019

Ed, Rhonda, Dory, Carolyn (SOS founder) and Stephanie (team Leader) had a wonderful time at a churchyard event in Maumee, Ohio at The Church on Strayer Sunday. Carolyn flew to Ohio to help this team with the first event. Stephanie has been working diligently for 2 years to get a team together and God blessed her with people who love the Lord and are excited to win souls. Their are several others who have been trained not pictured here. The Pastor came to see the SOS Events booth and immediately wanted more information. This team will grow into a strong witness in Ohio. More to come tomorrow….

Results from Alabama

This is an actual form from SOS Events team leader, Ronnie Burlison, about an event recently. Notice the decisions, ages and workers. Bill Newsom is a team leader in Tennessee who drove over to help. Thank you Ronnie, Tom and Bill for your faithfulness and especially to the Lord for the wonderful decisions. May all of these people who decided to trust in Jesus, grow in faith and continue to serve Him.

2 Peter 3:18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

Testimonies from Decision Cards

June 21, 2019

Seth Age 15 He saved me so I can go to heaven and I am 100% now.

Judah Age 10 He invited me to his kingdom to come when I die physically but live spiritually.

David Age 15 Help me realize that he can change my life.  But I have to be patient sometimes I’m impatient so I have to truly believe and give my life to him.

Abby Age 8 Jesus saved me and it makes me feel better and safe and it makes me feel locked up in Jesus’ arms.

It is so great to read the testimonies from people who come into the SOS Events Ministry booth and make a decision to follow the Lord. These are actual words from decision cards at an event recently.

John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

3 Saved in Pennsylvania

June 20, 2019

It is always wonderful to see people come to the Lord. Last Saturday it was a special blessing at the Food Truck Festival in Pennsylvania where 3 people came over to see the “3 Things God Can Not Do”.

One of them had been in the church’s rehabilitation program but had not made a decision to follow the Lord when attending meetings. However when she saw the display and was curious to know what God could not do. She was not 100% sure she was going to Heaven and went back to the soul winning table. She did accept Jesus as her Savior.

The blessings is that she will now grow in Christ because she is already attending classes and church. Many people hear the gospel several times before they are ready to be saved. God allows SOS Events Ministry to then led them to the Lord.

1 Corinthians 3:7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
