A Special Thank You

June 8, 2019

Sometimes things do not go as planned. That is exactly what happened when the Senior Servants with SOS Events came to work this month. When the newsletters ran out something was wrong. There were many pages of labels left and no more newsletters. Then one of the ladies noticed a duplicate name on a label.

What could we do? Some of the ladies offered to stay and put all the letters in alphabetical order, then go through a second time and compare to make sure to pull all duplicates. Those then had to be relabeled. It took several extra hours and all were found but 10. Thank you to all our Senior Servants. A special thanks to the ladies who could stay longer and help untangle the problem.

2 Thessalonians 1:3 We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth;

Happy Mother’s Day

Administrative Professionals Day – April 24, 2019

April 24, 2019

Diana Guiliano, Office Manager, SOS Events Ministry.

Alice Thomas, Event Coordinator, SOS Events Ministry.

Today is National Administrative Professionals Day. Maybe you have never heard of it. U.S. Secretary of Commerce Charles W. Sawyer initiated the first celebration of administrative professionals in 1952. While these positions are often not given their due praise, any successful business is aware that the administrative staff keep things running like a well-oiled machine, so make sure to let the administrative professionals in your life know they are appreciated today!

These 2 women are greatly appreciated as administrative professionals. SOS Events could not have flourished and grown without our dedicated staff. Thank you Diana and Alice.

1 Corinthians 1:4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;

Thank You From SOS Events

January 26, 2019

Today, a special thank you to everyone who comes and works on the SOS Events property to make it beautiful and safe. If we mentioned names we would be sure to leave someone out, so just a big thank you to everyone who takes time from their busy schedules to help. A few of the blessings, a new sidewalk, landscaping, cleanup after a storm that left debris everywhere. Some of you come when you know there is a need, others come immediately when there is an emergency, like a broken water line or electricity problems, others have a schedule, once a week or once a month. All of you are appreciated. Some people can not volunteer physically but give financially, which is always helpful because it takes money for supplies for up keep on the property. If you would like to be a blessing to SOS Events, we can always use your help.

Philippians 1:3 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,

Anna, the Prophetess

December 27, 2018

Anna, a prophet, was also there in the Temple. She was the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher, and was very old. She was a widow, for her husband had died when they had been married only seven years.

Probably, after her husbands death, Anna would have been encouraged to get married again and have children. Anna,  chose to stay single. She chose to serve the Lord. She chose to fast and pray, worshiping the Lord day and night. She told people the news of the Savior that was coming, no matter how long it might be before he came. She knew her purpose and she didn’t let anyone’s opinions or comments keep her from it. Then Anna saw Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus in the temple and knew her purpose had been fulfilled.

Luke 2:36-38 And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity; And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.

Happy Thanksgiving

God’s Perfect Plan

November 21, 2018

The following testimony is a true Thanksgiving story of a new great grandchild of Carolyn Curtis, written by her granddaughter in law, Nicole. Anyone who has had a problem waiting on God will benefit from this testimony of God’s perfect plan.

“I just want to start out by saying thank you to every single one of you that have shared this roller coaster journey of ours! It is overwhelming how blessed we are and how lucky we are to have such great and supportive family and friends. I know I couldn’t have done this without you all. Some of you know that Danny and I have been trying to have children of our own for a while, and you know everything that we have been through with that. And when you hear people say ,”Oh it will happen” and “God has a plan” it’s not something you want to hear when you have a plan and things aren’t going your way! I wanted kids, a whole bunch of them, and I wanted them right then. When things were not going as I had planned it was very discouraging. I was sad and mad and thought,” Why is this happening to us”! I just wanted a baby. I saw all these people that shouldn’t be reproducing and they have like seven kids. What is going on??! What did I do to be punished like this? I am usually a very happy person and I like to have fun and I hate being miserable! Danny was great through the whole thing, very supportive and always there. I really felt like he didn’t know exactly what I was going through. I wanted to be a Mom. I felt like part of my purpose was to have kids, to be a stay at home Mom with them. I mean for career day at school I went as a stay at home Mom with twins! Of course I was negative and bitter in my head. Mostly I didn’t want anyone to see how I was struggling with this. I am a happy positive person! But I was so tired of being miserable, sad, and mad. I couldn’t do it anymore. Why am I trying to do this by myself?! So one night I started reading my Bible and praying for hours. It was like a huge weight had lifted off of me. Why in the world did I not do this sooner? I was so focused on my plan not working like I wanted that I didn’t even stop and think ,wait a minute what is God’s plan for me? I am not even kidding from that night on I haven’t felt angry or bitter, of course there were more times where I thought, what is going and what is your plan? I tried to be positive and just kept reminding myself God has a plan. Years had passed and it seemed like it was bad news after bad news. Things not working out and I thought ok God what now because I am not sure how much more of this I can take! Well let me tell you He sure started making his plan known! We decided that we were going to adopt. We started that process and were about to head into the next stage when we got a very important phone call!!! Once again the plans changed. But the phone call was asking us if we wanted to adopt a little boy named Moses. That was God’s plan all along and we had to just wait on the perfect child for us!! We brought Moses home at the end of September 2017 and started the processes of adopting. (And how that all worked out is another long story by itself!) So God’s plan to put Moses in our life was worth everything that we went through and definitely worth the wait!! He is an answer to our prayers and we are so blessed!!! Thank God for keeping me strong through it all and I know this would not have been possible without Him. Now here on November 20th We finally get to say

Welcome Moses Slater to your forever family!”

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

Thankful for Friends

November 19, 2018

Thank the Lord for your friends. Some people have few friends, some have many friends.

A friend is someone who loves you in any circumstance. They laugh with you when you are happy and cry with you when you are sad, they accept you with all your faults and if you disagree they will come to an agreement even if it is to disagree agreeably. Sometimes a friend will disappoint you but they are still there for you when you need them.

There is one true friend that is always with you and that is Jesus. For the Christian He is the closest friend you will ever have and he never disappoints you. He listens to every prayer and has the power to answer. He comforts when you are hurting or sick. He is with you in your joys and in your sorrow. 24/7 He is there.

We are thankful for our friends here on earth but most thankful for Jesus who is ever present in our lives.

Proverbs 17:17 A friend loveth at all times,

Hebrews 13:5  Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Thankful for Our Churches

November 18, 2018

This week is a time of thanksgiving for all our blessings. One of the things we should be most thankful for is our church. Church is not just a building, it is a place to worship, fellowship, hear God’s Word, and sing praises to Jesus.

Psalms 122:1 I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.

God’s Forgiveness

November 17, 2018

Thank the Lord that He forgives us and we have Salvation and then as Christians He forgives us when we sin. God is faithful.
