The Balloon, Necklace and A Parking Place

August 26, 2016

What do these 3 things have in common? They are all answers to a child’s prayer. For the next three days you will be able to find out how God answers prayer of a little child.

When Diana’s son, Anthony, was very young he went shopping with his Mom. It is typical for a child to want something at a store and he saw this beautiful balloon. He wanted it but money was short then and Diana told him they didn’t have money for the balloon.

“Why don’t you ask Jesus for the balloon?” his mother told him. So Anthony prayed and did ask Jesus for the balloon.

When the mail came there was a letter from Diana’s Mom with one dollar in it. Just enough for Anthony’s balloon. They went and brought the balloon. A little boy’s prayer was answered even before he asked because the letter was mailed days before.

Matthew 7:11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

School has started or about to start in most USA states. The most important textbook we can have at any age, child or adult, is the Bible. Make sue that the Bible is the main source of education for yourself and your family.

Children Came

August 15, 2016

Another picture of the Family Fun Day in Tennesee. What a blessing to see children come to the Lord at an early age.

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.

Little Children

June 30, 2016

A young boy, William, 7 years old got saved at Daily Vacation Bible School recently. He was so excited and went home and told his little 3 year old brother, Isaac, that that he needed to give his heart to Jesus.

Isaac replied, “I will give my heart to Jesus someday but I need it right now.” (William and Isaac are the Curtis’ great grandsons)

Children, especially when very young, sometimes do not understand the terminology we use to present the Gospel. Just as a reminder to those of us who witness to make sure that the person we witness to understands how to be saved. 

The simple “3 Things God Can Not Do” is a wonderful way to witness to older children and adults but when talking with younger children we need to make sure they understand. Sometimes it is better to give a tract or witness to the parent and trust God to bring the child to Himself when the child is a little older. Always ask the Holy Spirit to direct you when witnessing.

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.

A Christian Father

June 18, 2016

“The Word of God is our chart and compass as Christian Fathers. Without it we lose our way.” Anonymous 

A Christian father has a responsibility to teach his children the Word of God. To often in today’s world that training is left to Sunday school, Christian school, Grandma or neglected altogether. Getting the family together for Bible reading and prayer daily is the way to rear children who will not loose their way as teenagers and adults. Dads, it is not to late to start now.

Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Happy Mothers Day 

May 8, 2016

May God bless all the Mothers who read this blog. God gave us a special high calling in life when he gave us children. Every Mother is a teacher, nurse, helper, example and many more things to her children. It is a great responsibility but also one of the greatest blessings a woman can have.

Our children reflect who we are. So Moms be the best you can be for them. The only way that we can be what our children need is through Jesus Christ. Follow Him and get instruction from the Bible that has much to say about rearing children. Then when they are adults thy will know they are blessed to have a Godly Mother.

Proverbs 31:28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

The Bible says that children are a heritage from the Lord. We have been blessed with some wonderful children. So today I am thanking the Lord for the wonderful family he has given and I trust that you will be praising the Lord for your family also. If you have a son or daughter and grandchildren also, take time today to tell them you love them, give them a call if they live far away, or the best thing you can possibly do is keep them always in your prayers.

Psalms 127:3 Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

One Child

January 17, 2016

“It is wonderful when God saves a drunkard which He sometimes does, but it is more wonderful still when God saves little children before they become drunkards, libertines, and degenerates.”  Bob Jones, Sr.

Yesterday, two of our SOS Events  workers went to the Plant  City Car Show to witness and win souls. We had great expectations for a good harvest at this event. We expected a large crowd because the weather was beautiful and it is a holiday weekend. We were disappointed however, because the crowds were sparse and there were only three other vendors at this event.

Only one salvation. Should we be disappointed? No! This one salvation was a young boy, eight years old, who made a decision to follow Jesus. God is the One who brings the increase and He knows what this one little boy will become. 

Great preachers, Billy Graham, Billy Sunday, Adrian Rogers, Bob Jones Sr., Charles Stanley, Jerry Falwell and many other preachers too numerous to name were once little eight-year-old boys. We rejoice that this one boy was saved yesterday and continue to pray with us that he will grow in Christ.

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.

Little Children

November 14, 2015

Matthew 19:13
 Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.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.

SOS Events has many events where children make decisions for Christ. One of the testimonies from a 7 year old little girl, written on the back of her decision card:

“I asked Jesus to come into my heart and forgive me for my sins.”

Children many times understand and accept Jesus because they have unwavering faith.

Teach Children

November 25, 2014

This picture is of a Christian family who sends their children to Christian school. The children learn about the Bible, salvation, and the wonderful Godly heritage of the USA. You can see in the background a bulletin board with pilgrims from the first Thanksgiving.
We give thanks for all the Christian schools, the sacrifice of both the parents and teachers who devote their time and money to educate children to love and honor God.

Deuteronomy 11:19
And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
