Pray for SOS

February 20, 2015

Great things happen when witnessing at events. One of the favorite events is Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Florida. The following story is from that event in 2008.
One exciting thing happened with two young boys who came in the booth to be saved. As Tom was filling out the card (we get name, address, age, phone # and a short testimony from each person who makes a decision) the 2 boys came back, each one holding the arm of their mother. One of the boys actually pushed his mother into a chair so Tom could tell her and their father how to get to Heaven. Both Mom & Dad received Christ and what a joyful time that was for this family of 4.
You can participate in the event by praying for SOS. Pray for souls and for workers. The 11 day event opens next week February 26.

Matthew 9:38
Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

Pedro Saved on Telephone

February 19, 2015

Many of our staff have signs on the rear window of their cars. Do You Know 3 Things God Can Not Do?
Pedro saw one of those signs and phoned the home office. Diana (SOS office manager) directed the phone call to Tom who talked to Pedro who was having thoughts of suicide.
Tom led Pedro to the Lord on the phone then Tom called a local pastor who immediately went to see Pedro.
Pedro is doing much better and now wants to grow in the Lord.
God brings people to SOS who need salvation.
2 Corinthians 6:2
(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee:behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

The Bonsai Tree

October 27, 2014

SOS Events had a booth at a County fair. In the booth next to ours was a Chinese man, who sold bonsai trees.
When things were slow, the SOS worker, asked the Chinese man,”How are things going?”
In broken English, the man replied, “Slow, I need to sell my Bonsai trees.”
“Which one would you like to sell?”
The Chinese man pointed to one of the most expensive of his bonsai trees.
“I will pray and ask God to bless you and that you will sell that bonsai tree,”
The next day, the SOS worker, came into the booth and the Chinese man with great excitement came over and ask her this question, “Who is your God and what is his name? After you left yesterday, a lady came by and bought that bonsai tree. Your God answers prayer.”
Thinking quickly, the SOS worker said, “His name is Jesus.”
“I want to know this Jesus,” the Chinese man replied.
Throughout the day when things were slow, The salvation story was explained to this Chinese man.
The next day, the man came over to the SOS booth and said, “I did it, I asked Jesus into my heart.”
SOS found a Chinese church in the man’s hometown so that his wife and mother could hear the gospel also.
What a joy to have the opportunity to lead someone from halfway around the world to the Lord Jesus Christ.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

World War II Veteran Saved

June 23, 2014

On the1st day of Summer, the Lord Jesus saved 9 souls @ the Auburndale, FL. Farmers/Flea Mkt. for His glory!!. There were (2 teens, 7 adults) from Footville, Wisconsin, Batesville, Texas & the Florida towns of Haines City, Mulberry, Wahneta, Polk City & Kissimmee Florida.

Today’s unique highlight came from Nicholas. He is a 90 year old WW2 Veteran in a wheel chair being pushed by his adult grandson. He was attracted to our “3 Things God Cannot Do” Gospel Board. With tears in his eyes, Nicholas said his wife for the past 55 years had died two weeks ago. He was heartbroken. The funeral left him searching for spiritual answers. God gave Nicholas the answer to his biggest question as he listened to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. At 1:35PM, Nicholas prayed out load in the public aisle at the flea market in repentance & faith toward Jesus Christ alone to save his soul.

2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us- ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Alabama Salvation Story

May 29, 2014

Interesting salvation story from Patty our SOS Event Leader in Alabama;
This past Saturday at Eastmont’s Yard Sale we had a lady accept Christ into her heart as her Lord and Savior (“Sally”), only to tell us afterwards that her husband is a Muslim!! She was so very excited to have Jesus in her heart and did not exhibit any signs of fear or worry about telling her husband…she even agreed to have us come for a home visit!!!
We Praise The Lord for what He is doing through SOS events. Please pray specifically for “Sally.”

1 Timothy 2:4
Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
