Joy of Soul Winning

March 18, 2018

There is absolutely complete joy in winning souls. Yesterday, SOS Events had three volunteers go to an event in Seffner, Fl. It was not a huge event but the people that were there were friendly and the children were having a great time. A young mother came to the booth with her beautiful little daughter. She had been wondering how to be sure she would go to Heaven but did not know what she had to do to be sure. She recently had purchased a Bible trying to find the answer. When she sat down with the soul winner she was so happy to hear how her sins could be forgiven. After she invited Jesus to be her Savior the joy on her face was a blessing to see.

James 5:20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.


Soul Winning

March 17, 2018

“Soul winning is the main thing with God. If it isn’t first with the preacher, the preacher isn’t right. If soul winning isn’t the first thing with the church, the church isn’t right. If soul winning isn’t first for a Sunday school teacher, he or she is not a good Sunday school teacher. If soul winning isn’t the main reason for a Christian school, it is not a very good Christian school. If soul winning isn’t the main thing for a Christian newspaper like the SWORD OF THE LORD, then it is off the track and not what a Christian paper ought to be. The first and main thing with God is soul winning. Every preacher, if he is saved, has this Great Commission. If you don’t win souls, you have failed in your Christian life. No one is a good Christian who doesn’t win souls.” By Dr. John R. Rice (1895-1980)

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

SOS Events Expanding

March 10, 2018

Originally the vision for SOS Events Ministry was to have teams in every state of the USA, and that is still a goal yet to be reached. However, over the years, Christians have taken “3 Things God Can Not Do” to other countries. Germany, England and Portugal to name a few. Recently a team from Alabama went to Belize in Central America where 34 decisions were recorded. Also, many people from 92 countries have visited the website and had opportunity to be saved. To God be the glory, great things He has done. Praise the Lord for His blessings.

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

The Tortoise and The Hare

March 9, 2018

The Strawberry Festival is a once a year “big” event. Only 3 more days to go. Please continue to pray for souls. However, we must not minimize the “smaller” regular events. The Plant City Flea Market is a great example. On Wednesday this week 17 precious soul came to know Jesus. There is a fable about a Tortoise (turtle) and the Hare. The hare (rabbit) is faster but the turtle is slow but steady. At the end of the race the turtle won. The Strawberry Festival is like the rabbit, many souls get saved in a short period of time, but the regular weekly event wins more souls by the end of the year. We are blessed to have the opportunity to witness at events both big and small.

Luke 14:23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.

No Retirement

March 8, 2018

SOS Events Ministry has many wonderful volunteers who work in the booth at events and we are thankful for everyone. This week we were extremely blessed to have two retired Pastors work in our booth, both for the first time. Jay, 85 years old, talking to two people at the display board and David, in his 70’s, witnessing from the smaller display. Cynthia, mother of 5 and not a senior citizen, is at the table. Jay and David loved working with SOS Events as it gives them opportunity to do what they love best, telling others about Jesus. If you are retired or know someone who is and wants to witness in a non confrontational way for a few hours when needed, SOS Events is the perfect place for you.

Isaiah 43:12 I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God.

Pure Joy

March 7, 2018

Emma, A little girl, 7 years old, wanted to know how to be 100% sure she was going to Heaven. She came into the booth with her mother and listened intently as the soul winner explained the plan of salvation. Emma prayed and trusted Jesus as her Savior. When she got up to leave she actually was jumping for joy. Everyone in the booth smiled at the pure joy of a child who now knows she is going to Heaven.

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.

Remaining Fruit

March 5, 2018

Some people are skeptical about Salvations at the SOS Events booth. God is the One who does the saving. The volunteers are doing what He commanded by telling people how to be saved. Bob a young teenager was at the Strawberry Festival a few years ago, where he saw a “3 Things God Can Not Do” tract that someone had thrown out. He read it, asked Jesus to be his Savior and started attending a youth group at a local church. Bob is still serving the Lord today. This story is evidence that God uses the faithful team members of SOS Events Ministry to bring people to the Lord. He promises blessings and that our “fruit” will remain.

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.

Sunday Soul Winning

March 4, 2018

While most of you will be in church today, volunteers from SOS events ministry will be winning souls at the Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Florida. God has blessed with 50 people who have made decisions for Christ the last three days. Praise the Lord. Please continue to pray for people to be saved today and for the remainder of the festival.

James 5:20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

Weeping Lady

March 3, 2018

Yesterday in the SOS Events booth at Strawberry Festival, a woman (we will call her Sue) and her husband came over to see the “3 Things God Can Not Do”. As she talked with the volunteer at the display she was openly weeping. She was greatly distressed because one of her family members had taken her life just a short while ago. Sue finally consented to come back to the soul winning table and talk with the soul winner. Still crying she listened as the soul winner told her of the love that Jesus had for her and that she needed the peace and comfort that only Jesus can give. Hearing the plan of salvation, Sue and her husband both prayed and invited Jesus to be their Savior. Immediately, the tears stopped and a small smile came across Sue’s face. The peace of God had touched her heart. What a blessing to take part in a Ministry where lives are changed. The SOS Events slogan is “A life saving ministry” and we see the evidence at every event.

Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
