January Ends

January 31, 2019

How was your month? Most of us have had many days of cold weather and our soul winning opportunities were few. Do not be discouraged. It is a great time to plan for warmer weather. Looking for future events? Look on line to your local Chamber of Commerce. Many events are free or of low cost to a non profit organization. SOS Events qualifies. You have to go shopping, hand out a tract or witness to the person in the checkout line. When you mail a letter, put a tract in it. Witness whenever and wherever you can. February starts tomorrow. New month, new opportunities. Let us spread the message of God’s love.

1 John 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

Tracts

January 30, 2019

Tracts are very effective. Many Christians have been saved reading a tract, either along with someone witnessing or them or picking one up and reading it on their own. Carolyn Curtis is a good example. She was given a tract the morning she was on the way to Niagara Falls to end her life. While getting up the courage to jump in, she read the tract, prayed the prayer on the back and was gloriously saved. Since that time many have come to the Lord through her witness. One tract can change a life. You can be the one to give a tract to someone in person, leave one in the restroom at a store restaurant or any public place. Put one in a library book, in a shoe box at a shoe store. Be creative. Think of a place to leave a tract and pray someone will find it who needs the Lord. It is a life changing opportunity.

Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Pray for SOS Events

January 29, 2019

Problems are part of life and on the SOS Events property there is an electricity problem. When working on display boards in the paint shop, David Dow, noticed sparks coming from an electric outlet. He immediately shut off the power. When the Electrician came, he gave us the bad news, all the wiring and boxes need replacement. The Office, Workshop and the Curtis home are all effected by the old dangerous system. We are thankful that God kept the property safe from fire, but this problem must be taken care of immediately. Until then all power to the workshop is shut off. Pray for additional funds will come in to pay for the repairs. Estimate $4000. SOS Events is a faith based ministry. God provides through the generosity of people who love the ministry. Please pray that the funds will come in and ask the Lord what you can do to help.

Proverbs 21:3 The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the Lord.

2 Corinthians 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

Stormy Days

January 28, 2019

On a cold stormy day, we do not feel like doing anything but stay inside, wrap in a warm fuzzy blanket and do nothing. When storms of life happen, we feel the same way. Just stay inside, wrap up in our sorrow and pain and do nothing. Our attitude reflects the storm, however, God tells us to behave differently in those circumstances. He is with us, will not forsake us and gives us the strength to go on to serve Him.

Isaiah 49:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Psalms 50:15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

Psalms 138:8 The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

Lights Out!

January 24, 2019

Our lives are so dependent on electricity, that when there is a power outage we have trouble doing ordinary things. No light, no coffee, no heat or air conditioning. No communication on social media. We feel helpless. The worst thing is the darkness. Then we light a candle. One small candle in a big room, but it gives light so we can see!

John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. He is the one that gives us true light. Once I was blind but now I can see, spiritually.

Our responsibility is to let the light of the gospel shine through us, so others may hear and be able to “see” the truth of the way of salvation. You may think that you will not do much, but remember the one little candle that lights a whole room. Let us shine for Jesus.

More Pigz in Zā€™Hillz

January 22, 2019

These two girls are students at Zephyrhills High School. They came to the Pigz in Z’Hillz Festival to have a good time. Interested in the 3 Things God Can Not Do, they came and talked to Dena, who led them to the Lord, using the A B C’s of salvation. These girls did not know when they came to this event that they would leave knowing that they would go to Heaven.

SOS Events volunteers have the joy and privilege to lead people to the Lord. Many of the workers are retired, like Dena and her husband, Glen, but they continue to Serve Our Savior faithfully. SOS Events goal is to spread the gospel to as many people as possible. You could share in the joy of seeing people’s lives changed by volunteering to work with SOS Events. You will receive training, encouragement and everything you need to become a witness and soul winner, not only at events but in your everyday life. Come join us.

Acts 5:32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

Sunday School

January 20, 2019

Sunday School isn’t just for kids. It is a time when we can learn more about Jesus and Christian living. We have opportunity to get to know people better and make lasting friendships. Don’t send your kids to Sunday School. Go with them and join in a class where you can grow in Christ.

2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

One Word- COMMIT

January 16, 2019

What a great way to begin a new year. Choose one word that will fit your situation and lifestyle and focus on that for the year. There have been many suggestions. Faith, love, commitment, trust and many more.

For SOS Events Ministry this year the word is commit. Commit to winning souls, train more workers , get new events, expand into new areas, but, most importantly commit to follow the Lord’s leading in everything we do.

You can help meet that goal. Pray for SOS Events regularity, give generously, volunteer to work in events, find new events for us and in your church or club arrange for one of SOS Events Leaders to come and present the ministry.

Psalms 37:5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

No Church Today?

January 13, 2019

There may be reasons you can’t go to church today. Illness, work or weather may prevent you from being in church. Many places in the Northern United States have cancelled church today because of snow, ice and dangerous driving conditions. If you cannot go use this time to gather round your family and read the Bible and pray together. If your are alone what a great opportunity to fellowship with the Lord without distractions.

A Pastor wrote on FB yesterday some good advice, if you stay home, don’t post your 10:30 trip to Walmart on Face Book. Whatever your circumstances today, take time to worship the Lord.

Psalms 29:2 Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

Are You Content?

January 11, 2019

Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
