Work On

January 12, 2017

Work on SOS Events property continues. We are thankful for all the hard work these 5 men from Bible Baptist Church, Appomattox, VA are doing. The offices of SOS Events are just 2 job trailers and all the planning and administration happens from the space the Lord has provided.

As you can see the money donated does not go for fancy buildings and expensive facilities, but all goes to the goal of seeing souls come to Jesus. We do need to take care of what we have however, and the sacrifice of these men from VA are a blessing. Please pray for them. 2 of them have had news of serious illness in a family member since they have been here, but they continue to work on.

1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Wednesday is a Special Day

July 27, 2016

Wednesday is a special day in the home office of SOS Events. The opportunity to win souls at the weekly Plant City Flea Market is always exciting. It is also the day when all the office staff is working. All of the office personnel are part time workers so their hours vary, but on Wednesdays everyone is busy in the office. 

Diana, who is the Office Manager/Secretary is overseeing and making sure everyone has their tasks understood and preformed properly. Beka, Hailey and Juliana, our 3 recent high school graduates are doing their work diligently. Beka is Diana’s assistant and has worked in the office all her high school years, her main duties are to do whatever Diana or Carolyn needs to be done. Hailey does most of the filing, keeping the tracts and supplies in order. Juliana records the decisions and updates any records needed on the computer.

After the Flea Market, Alice arrives with the news of the salvations for the day. Then she works on correspondence, schedules events and makes necessary phone calls. Carolyn now has her own office so is not in the main building on Wednesdays but will go in and greet everyone before she goes to carry on the work of the ministry. 

David, SOS maintenance man also works on Wednesdays when he is in Florida. He spends his summers up North and will return soon.

Everyday is an opportunity to further the Gospel of Jesus, but for the home office of SOS Events,  Wednesday is a special day when we all work together.

1 Corinthians 3:9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.

Amazing Staff

The office staff of SOS events is amazing. They all go above and beyond what is expected or asked of them. 

Diana, office manager, teacher, trainer and friend does so many things that an ordinary employee would not do. She keeps everything running smoothly. Does all the banking and along with Carolyn takes care of donations and finances.

Alice, who does most of the scheduling of events, makes phone calls to coordinate workers, trains, and regularly wins souls at a weekly flea market. 

Beka, has worked in the office part time since seventh grade, now is about to graduate from high school. She loves the ministry and is a soul winner. She is willing to do whatever necessary to help. She also does computer work and knows how the ministry functions.

Hailey is also a senior in high school who started working this year with SOS Events. She does all the things that are so important to keep supplies for events. She does filing, makes decision cards, packages tracts, sends reminders and cards to workers and various little things that are to numerous to mention.

Julianna, also a senior in high school and our newest office worker. She does computer work and her responsibilities include recording decisions and making sure the new converts get Bible studies.

There are also several volunteers who will come when extra work is needed in the office.

This staff is dedicated to the Lord, SOS Events ministry and also are a great help to the founders, Tom and Carolyn. We are so thankful to have this staff working daily in the office. 

Tom and Carolyn just want to publicly thank them and want them to know how much they are appreciated.

Hebrews 6:10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
