Tracts

January 30, 2019

Tracts are very effective. Many Christians have been saved reading a tract, either along with someone witnessing or them or picking one up and reading it on their own. Carolyn Curtis is a good example. She was given a tract the morning she was on the way to Niagara Falls to end her life. While getting up the courage to jump in, she read the tract, prayed the prayer on the back and was gloriously saved. Since that time many have come to the Lord through her witness. One tract can change a life. You can be the one to give a tract to someone in person, leave one in the restroom at a store restaurant or any public place. Put one in a library book, in a shoe box at a shoe store. Be creative. Think of a place to leave a tract and pray someone will find it who needs the Lord. It is a life changing opportunity.

Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

What Can a Tract Do?

March 4, 2017

You never know what handing someone a tract will do. Yesterday a phone call came into the office from a Pastor in Pennsylvania wanting to order 500 “3 Things God Cannot Do” tracts. Someone had handed him one of our tracts and he shared it with another Pastor. Both loved the simplicity of the gospel and the way it was written. When asked for his name for shipping purposes the last name was recognized as the same as one of the people who came to a training just a few weeks ago in Florida. We found out he is the brother-in-law to the lady who was trained. She had given the tract to Him. Now he and his Pastor friend wants to use the SOS Events method to win souls in their churches. That once again opens new territory for the ministry in two towns in Pennsylvania. God is enlarging our boarders.

1 Chronicles 4:10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.

Halloween, A Time to Witness

October 31, 2016

Halloween is a day that originated to ward off evil spirits with bonfires and sacrifices. Today it is a time when children trick or treat and adults party. Some people love Halloween and others hate it, but however you feel about today as Christian we can use it to witness for the Lord.

If children come to your house for trick or treat be sure to give them a tract along with the candy. SOS Events participates in many Halloween alternatives at churches and community events. Diana (our office manager) sets up a “3 Things God Can Not Do” display in her yard every Halloween and has seen many children, teens and adults come to know the Lord in the last several years. Be a witness and use this opportunity for God’s glory. Also please pray for many souls to be saved on this night the busiest in the year for SOS Events all around the USA.

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.

Are You Sitting?

February 7, 2016

Could a mariner sit idle if he heard the drowning cry? Could a doctor sit in comfort and just let his patients die? Could a fireman sit idle, let men burn and give no hand? Can you sit at ease in Zion with the world around you damned?” 

Leonard Ravenhill

People around us are dying without Christ. We need to stop sitting and start witnessing. All of us can pray for the lost and we can had out a tract. Most of us have opportunities to witness to someone, a delivery man, a wrong number on the phone, a person in the grocery store. Look for people to tell about Jesus. When you get to heaven, do not go in empty handed? Many Christians have never won anybody to Jesus in their lifetime. How sad. Do not be one of them. Tell someone about Jesus today.

Acts 1:8  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Parking Lot Salvation

January 29, 2016

Quite frequently Tom will wait in the car while Carolyn goes shopping. Always looking for someone to witness to, Tom saw a young man collecting the grocery carts to take them inside. Tom called him over to the car.

Tom was going to hand him my tract, and decided to carry on the conversation a little longer. Tom asked the young man whose name is Christian if he was 50, 75, or 100% sure he was on his way to heaven.

Christian said, “I am not sure at all.”

Tom then proceeded to lead Christian into the plan of salvation and Christian gladly accepted  the Lord. All of this took place in less than five minutes.

Usually when a person is working handing them tract is all that should be done because we would not want anyone to  have a problem with their employer. But Christian was working outside that day and the conversation was very short.

Tom did not get Christian’s full address because of the time but did get his phone number and will follow up.

2 Timothy 4:2  Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

Going Fishing?

January 26, 2016

This week a Pastor from Virginia was excited to help expand SOS Events ministry. He is planning a training in the next month or two as several people have expressed interest in learning the “3 Things God Can Not Do.”

In our conversation he said one of the ladies that was at an SOS training a few years ago, just last week took one of the 3 Things tract, used it to witness to her brother in law and he accepted Christ. What joy! Even after years this woman used what she had learned and used it to fish for men. 

Using the simple plan of salvation in SOS Events materials works with enthusiasm of the soul winner and the power of the Holy Spirit. Want to learn how to fish?

Ecclesiastes 11:1‚Äč Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.

Matthew 4:19  And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
  

Today is an Event

January 21, 2016

Event Evangelism, Inc is the legal name for SOS Events ministry and all of our witnessing takes place at events. The definition of an event by the founder of SOS Events ministry is “An event is when you get up in the morning.”

Everyday is another opportunity to witness. Young mother at home with small children, witness to someone on the phone or a neighbor or delivery man. Student, witness to your unsaved fellow students. Business man or woman, you have many opportunities to witness as you work (make sure you do not do it on the boss’s time). Elderly, even in a nursing home you have people around you to witness to for the Lord.

Today is an event. Give someone a tract, tell someone your testimony or use the simple “3 Things God Can Not Do” approach which takes less than 2 minutes. Make today your special event.

Acts 1:8  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

What’s In Your Wallet?

January 15, 2016

What’s in your wallet? What you carry in your wallet or purse can make a great difference in someone’s life.

Every Christian should carry tracts wherever you go. Keep one or two in your wallet. Several in your purse. Always have them in your car, but don’t leave them there. 

When you are in a grocery store, market, work, school just say sweetly “I have something for you to read.”

Most everyone will accept a tract and it is a way to tell others how they can go to Heaven.

If you need tracts, contact SOS Events and we will send you 10 tracts free.

Email: info@sosevents.org or call 813-494-7512.

Salvation Blessing

August 7, 2015

This week SOS Events had a special blessing. One of the Bible tracts that have the “3 Things God Can Not Do” was sent to the office from a woman who got saved reading it.

On the back of the tract is a little box for a person to make a check mark and beside the box it says I promise God to read this.  When a person is too busy to talk or is not ready to receive Christ many times when witnessing one of our workers will say, “Will you promise God you will read this? Check the box.”

When this particular tract came to the office the box was checked and the date of salvation was filled in. Which is another space on the tract. When that space is filled out SOS Events sends Bible studies, some helpful information to start that person on her new life.

What a joy to know that just handing a person a Bible tract will result in salvation. Tracts work. Do you hand out tracts?  It is so easy to smile at someone and say, “I have something I would like to give you.” Hand them the tract and be on your way.

Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Spurgeon Quote on Tracts

March 18, 2015

“Let each one of us, if we have done nothing for Christ, begin to do something now. The distribution of tracts is the first thing.”  Charles Spurgeon

The least we can do for JESUS is to hand a tract to someone. SOS Events can supply you with simple tracts that are effective tools for bringing someone to Christ.
