Amazing Email

May 11, 2016

Tom, let me give you a report. You helped us train and instruct our people working the Lucas County Fair. We used your methodology, sign ideas, for 20 years, I kept track of yearly results, we always had a minimum of 200 pray to receive Christ each week of the fair. Our best years, which outnumbered the lowest one were between 500-600 souls per year. More people have prayed for salvation in that 100 foot square space than any other spot in Lucas County history. My estimate is at least 7,000 souls prayed in all the years there. I believe we were on Holy Ground! You helped us lay the foundation. Thank you, you will get an exact count in Heaven.
Often we do not know the results of our labor for the Lord but this email came to Tom Curtis from Russ, a Pastor in Ohio.

Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Joni Erickson

March 20, 2016

Joni Erickson Tada had a terrible accident that left her a quadriplegic. In spite of her physical limitations she became an accomplished author and artist. Over 25 years ago she married her husband, Ken. For her wedding she had planned to come down the center aisle in her motorized wheel chair. Just before her grand entrance she noticed two distressing problems. First, she had rolled over her beautiful gown and made a big grease spot and tear in it. Then, the flowers in her lap had slipped and had lodged between her leg and the chair. She was filled with disappointment, and then suddenly the doors to the auditorium opened, and she saw her husband to be.
Here was the man who was committing his love and his life to her. Joni later said, “Once I saw Ken’s face, all I could think of was him. Everything else—the people in the church, the flowers that were sitting a little askew on my lap, the fact that my dress didn’t fall right because I was sitting in a wheelchair, the grease marks, the rip in my gown all of it paled in comparison.”
When we we see Christ, He will be all that matters to us.

Matthew 26:64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

God Answers Prayer

November 28, 2015

The blessings of answered prayer. Nicky,the physical therapist that Tom led to the Lord a few weeks ago, came into the house all excited yesterday.

On his last visit Nicky was worried he had no one to care for his small daughter on the Friday after Thanksgiving as both he and his wife had to work. Tom prayed that someone would be found to watch her for free.

The answer: Nicky’s sister called him and asked if she could please watch the little girl for the day as she wanted to spend more time with her niece. Nicky then realize that that was a direct answer to prayer and is so happy in his new Christian life.

God answers prayer. He loves it when we are specific in our requests because then there is no doubt that it is Him that brings the blessing.

Matthew 21:22  And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Endorsement

November 10, 2015

Testimony received from Alabama recently. What a great endorsement for SOS events and Praise the Lord for the souls saved.

 My name is Carey Waldrop. I am a former pastor. I am currently the chapter director for our Faith Riders ministry @ Mineral Springs Baptist Church. I was recently introduced to SOS. I was trained & also received training to be a trainer. I have already trained several of our faith rider members. I said all that to say this; we had an opportunity to use the sos method last Wednesday. We were invited to another church Enon Baptist to have a trunk or treat on our bikes, which we did. We also decided to bring along our sos board and share the gospel. Not only did our newly trained guys step up to the plate & put what they had learned into practice, but were excited to see immediate results with 12 souls coming to Christ. Thanks for a very simple way to not only share the gospel ( over the years I have used several) simple & easy to train others. In his service.

Harvest Hayride Event

October 12, 2015

Rain in New Jersey on the weekend cancelled monthly Columbus Flea Market and one night of Harvest Hayride, one of the most exciting and profitable events for soul winning that SOS Events has the privilege of participating in each year.

However, in spite of the rain the event did take place on Saturday evening and fourteen precious souls were saved. Sara B, Mae, Tom, Chris, Lena and Sandy with their team leader Lavanya worked in the booth. Thank you!

On the decision card, in answer to the question, What did Jesus do for you when you just prayed?; Simone, age 37, wrote: He sent me here to get me delivered from my fears.

2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

New Things

September 28, 2015

Two new things are on the SOS Events website that you may have missed. The “3 Things God Can Not Do” is in Spanish on the menu tab Espanol. That has been something that has been needed as the Spanish Division of the ministry has expanded greatly in the last year.

Another addition is “Tom’s Testimony” on the Testimony page. If you have not heard or read how SOS Events founder was saved it is worth a few minutes of your time to read his testimony. God has used this story all over the USA to reach people for Jesus Christ.

To God be the Glory for the new blessings that He pours out on SOS Events. 

Psalms 68:19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. 

Testimony

August 26, 2015

Everyone who works with SOS Events Ministry gives us their testimony in writing.

One young man told us he didn’t have a testimony. We ask him if he was saved, was he born again?

He said yes he was saved and he knew for sure he was on his way to heaven.

This is his story:

One Sunday he was walking by a church and heard music. He had been thinking about some of the things that he had done that he was sorry for and he felt guilty in his heart. He decided to go in the church to find out if he could be forgiven.

An usher was standing inside the door and asked the young man if he could help him. 

“Yes, the young man said, I need to be forgiven.”

The usher took the young man into a little room where he explained the plan of salvation and the young man was wonderfully saved.

No testimony? That is one of the greatest testimonies that we have heard.

Do you have a testimony you would like to share with others? We would love to hear it. Send us an email and we may post it or put it in our monthly newsletter. Info@sosevents.org.

Testimony and Invitation

July 21, 2015

When I was 12 years old, the pastor came to our house to ask if I would be baptized with my sister and cousin as they didn’t want to do that without me. He asked me if I ever asked Jesus in my heart and I told him no, but I would be baptized so my sister and cousin would. The pastor told me to come down the isle Sunday and someone would pray with me then they would schedule the baptism. SO I did, and I prayed only to do what I needed to do so my sister and cousin would be baptized. Years later, I questioned my salvation because it wasn’t of my own will that sought Jesus but out of duty. I did not come to Jesus until I was 18. Yes, I can give you dates, times and places but I do know that the first time I prayed was not real, it was not me seeking Jesus but the approval to get baptized. Diana

If you are not 100% sure when you die you would go to heaven, you need to make sure of yourself salvation.

You must admit you are a sinner. Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Believe that Jesus died on the cross, was buried, and rose again. Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Then call upon the name of the Lord. Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Lord Jesus, I admit I am a sinner. I believe you died on the cross for forgiveness of my sins. I ask that you forgive my sins, come into my heart and make my life new. I receive you as my Savior. Thank you Jesus. Amen

Tool or Toy

July 6, 2015

“Are you a tool for God or a toy for Satan?”

This a quote from one of the Benham brothers on Dr. Charles Stanley’s TV program IN TOUCH. The Benham brothers have a powerful Christhian testimony. They stand against abortion and gay marriage and it cost them a great contract with HGTV. Their program was about flipping houses and helping families that could not afford to own a house have the ability to purchase a home.

HGTV cancelled the contract after pressure from the liberals. The brothers acted with a CHRISTIAN attitude and thanked HGTV for the opportunity and did not get angry or retaliate in any way.

Then they learned that the financial  institution which finances all their real estate business was going to pull all the loans and contracts ruining their successful real estate business. Once again the brothers reacted in a Godly way. They would not change their CHRISTIAN beliefs for fame or money. “It’s in God’s hands” was their remarks. 

After much pressure from the conservative Christians who do business with the bank that handles all the real estate deals, the bank changed and decided to continue financing the Benham brothers business.

Thank the Lord for young men who will stand up for what they believe. 

This story shows how far our country has come in taking away our rights as CHRISTIANS. If we value our freedom given to American citizens by the Constitution we must stand up for our rights. 

Enough people contacted that bank and the decision was reversed. We must stand and do what needs to be done in a Christlike manner and then allow God to bring the Victory.

Ephesians 6:7 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
