Evangelism blooper

Yesterday, I was out doing some personal 1-on-1 witnessing handing out Billion Dollar Bill tracts. As one young woman was walking out of the nail salon I said to her, "I'd like you to have one of these after getting your nose and tails done." She looked at me weird and I knew something didn't sound right with what I said, so I tried again and said, "I'm sorry, I meant to say your nose and tails."

Still realizing that I had things mixed up, she was chuckling at my blunder and I finally said, your nails and toes and it still didn't sound right! She received the tract though with some humor.

Have a great week.

God bless.

Hey brother Kurt,

That was funny. However, God still received the glory in spite of the blunder.

Thanks for the laugh.

Keep up the good work!
