2018 Strawberry Festival Ends

March 13, 2018

The crowds are gone. Decorations put away until next year and another Strawberry Festival is over. God is so wonderful as He has blessed the SOS Events booth once again. We prayed for 250 decisions or more. The count was 247 (we thought), Then when the decision cards were recorded on the computer there had been a mistake. Final count 253. God answers prayer. Please pray for these new Christians as they receive their Bible Studies, that they will grow and find a good church to attend.

Acts 2:47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.


SOS Events Expanding

March 10, 2018

Originally the vision for SOS Events Ministry was to have teams in every state of the USA, and that is still a goal yet to be reached. However, over the years, Christians have taken “3 Things God Can Not Do” to other countries. Germany, England and Portugal to name a few. Recently a team from Alabama went to Belize in Central America where 34 decisions were recorded. Also, many people from 92 countries have visited the website and had opportunity to be saved. To God be the glory, great things He has done. Praise the Lord for His blessings.

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

The Tortoise and The Hare

March 9, 2018

The Strawberry Festival is a once a year “big” event. Only 3 more days to go. Please continue to pray for souls. However, we must not minimize the “smaller” regular events. The Plant City Flea Market is a great example. On Wednesday this week 17 precious soul came to know Jesus. There is a fable about a Tortoise (turtle) and the Hare. The hare (rabbit) is faster but the turtle is slow but steady. At the end of the race the turtle won. The Strawberry Festival is like the rabbit, many souls get saved in a short period of time, but the regular weekly event wins more souls by the end of the year. We are blessed to have the opportunity to witness at events both big and small.

Luke 14:23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.

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.

Sunday Soul Winning

March 4, 2018

While most of you will be in church today, volunteers from SOS events ministry will be winning souls at the Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Florida. God has blessed with 50 people who have made decisions for Christ the last three days. Praise the Lord. Please continue to pray for people to be saved today and for the remainder of the festival.

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.

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.

Christian Blessings

February 28, 2018

It is a blessing to be a Christian in many ways. We know the Lord Jesus and he will never leave us or forsake us. Then we have assurance of Heaven if we have trusted Him as our Savior. Our sins are forgiven. Also, another blessing is fellowship with other Christians. We meet another Christian for the first time and immediately there is a bond of friendship. If you have not accepted Christ, do it today and you can join in the many blessings that are too numerous to tell you here.

1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

SOS Events Trainings

February 20, 2018


Several trainings have taken place in Florida preparing for the annual Strawberry Festival. It is a blessing to see many people come to learn how to present the “3 Things God Can Not Do” this is a picture of a couple practicing at a recent training.  It is our responsibility to teach others how to be witnesses for Jesus Christ.

1 Timothy 4:11 These things command and teach.

SOS Events Training

February 16, 2018

SOS Evangelism Event Ministries refresher course, at Good News Baptist Church, with Event Ministries Training Leaders Beth Wes Walker was held recently. A lot of Events coming up this year.

I have taken just about every soul winning course that’s been available in the last 50 years, but SOS is one of the easiest and non-offensive evangelism ministries I’ve been a part of.

2 Timothy 2:2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
