New Office Assistant

July 10, 2020

SOS Events introduce our new Office Assistant, Val. She is on the right listening as Diana, Office Manager, telling her about SOS Events and what her responsibilities will be.

Val joins Carolyn, Diana and Alice to keep everything running smoothly at the home office of SOS Events. Welcome, Val.

Even in this time of inactivity at events, because of coronavirus, SOS Events have been busy preparing and planning for new and exciting ways to present the gospel at this unusual time.

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

Small World

July 6, 2020

Carolyn Curtis’ grandson, Matthew, was working at a car dealership in Roanoke Virginia, when a car pulled in for service that had, Do You Know The 3 Things God Can Not Do on the back window. He went over to ask the couple who they were.

They replied, Glenn and Dena Priddy. They are from Florida but have a summer home in Virginia. Matthew, Glen and Dena had a wonderful conversation while waiting for their vehicle to be serviced.

The 2nd photo is Glen and Dena (in the blue shirts) at a SOS Event with 2 people that were saved. It is a small world and we never know what blessings will come to us when we witness for Jesus.

A sign on the back of your car, a tract or just a friendly smile can really make a difference in someone’s life today.

Matthew 5:16 – Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Car Show in Ohio

So happy an event is taking place even as this blog is being written. Thank you Ohio team for your faithfulness. Results to post soon.

Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

New Horizons and The Main Thing

June 15, 2020

SOS Events continue to move forward while many things in this world are at a standstill.

Last week Carolyn Curtis was finally able to travel to Nashville, Tennessee from Florida. She combined the trip into visiting family and then meeting with new missionary, Ronnie Burlison, his wife, Connie and William Slater, SOS Events board member. ( William is Carolyn’s son)

The meeting was successful as many plans for the moving forward were discussed. Ronnie will be going to Mississippi to find new events and train many churches to partner with SOS Events. He will also expand new areas in Northern Alabama.

A new soul winning tool is being developed. Details to come. One of the most important things discussed was how to reach college age people to spread the gospel. New ideas that are exciting.

God is moving SOS Events to bigger things. Please pray for events to open soon. New things are great but the heartbeat of the ministry is to see people come to know Jesus as their Savior. We must never loose sight of the main thing.

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.

Move Forward

June 12, 2020

SOS Events Ministry office has been open throughout this whole time of stay at home directives because of coronavirus. We have not had any events or gatherings, however, there have been some wonderful opportunities for planning what is to come in the future.

God has sent us some new people. 2 new teen girls to help in the office, a new missionary couple, and an opportunity to add the state of Mississippi to our growing ministry.

When things do not go as we plan, the Lord does not want us to stop doing His will or calling for SOS Events. This time has been a time of planning, and growing, in spite of social distancing.

We are praying that events will soon open and once again our team members can be out witnessing to the lost.

Deuteronomy 5:32 Ye shall observe to do therefore as the Lord your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.

Showers of Blessing

May 28, 2020

Yesterday, God sent literal showers but, He also sent the special blessing of 2 salvations at the Plant City Flea Market.

SOS Events faithful Wednesday workers got a little wet. They Praise the Lord for God’s showers especially the 2 salvations. What a blessing to be able to go to an event again to win souls.

Flea Market Open

May 21, 2020

Alice and Mark ( one of our SOS volunteers) had opportunity to go to the Plant City, Florida Flea Market yesterday.

The first time in over two months that SOS Events was able to go to an event. The crowd was a little sparse but God blessed with one young girl trusting Jesus as her Savior. Praise the Lord!

It is a joy to be able to go to events once again to witness. Pray with us for more events to open all over the USA and beyond.

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

Remembering Tom Curtis

May 14, 2020

Tom Curtis, cofounder of SOS Events Ministry, went home to be with his Lord 4 years ago today. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather but most of all he loved the Lord with all his heart. A tremendous soul winner. His goal was to see as many people accept Jesus as their Savior as he could possibly tell, then to teach and train others how to witness for the Lord. In spite of pain and physical illness he never failed to try to reach his goal and he witnessed to everyone he came in contact with until the day he left this earth to be with his Savior. SOS Events Ministry thrives today because of his vision and dedication. We miss him but are blessed to have had him in our lives.

2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

Teacher Appreciation Day

May 8, 2020

Finally, during the coronavirus, an event that SOS Events could participate in. Teacher Appreciation Day at Greco Middle School in Temple Terrace, FL.

The teachers lined up in their cars and drove by the the vendors to get a gift from each business participating. The distance rules were obeyed as the teachers were given their gift through their car window.

Each teacher received a gift and a tract with the 3 Things God Can Not Do from SOS Events Ministry. Pray for teachers everywhere whose lives have been changed as most schools are closed until the fall semester.

Romans 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

New Intern for SOS Events

April 28, 2020

This is Stephanie. She is not in school because of the coronavirus so she is working with SOS Events a few mornings each week. (We are using social distancing)

Welcome to the office, Stephanie. We are happy to have you.

SOS Events has an intern program where young people that are in 7th grade or older can get experience working in a ministry. They work in the office and sometimes outside. When they are older and apply for jobs they have a reference and experience needed to secure good employment. They also see how a ministry works and have learned how to witness and win souls to the Lord. There have been at least 8 girls that have worked with SOS Events in our home office and many who work with other teams, especially in Alabama going to events to learn how to witness. Boys are part of this program, also.

I Timothy 4:12 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
