Witnessing to Telemarketers

Here's what to do when a telemarketer calls, let your little light shine . . . through the phone. When he says, "I have a real deal for you. It won't cost you a thing," simply ask for his name and then say, "It's good to hear from you. Have you been having a good day?" Listen to his reaction. Your genuine warmth will probably shock him. Then say, "Can I ask you a few questions?" If he's been trained to be polite, he will react positively. Then ask, "Do you consider yourself to be a good person?" If you mess up, say, "Gotta go. Thanks for calling." Then hang up. So, don't stay in to tomb of dead silence. Ask God to send His angels to roll the stone of fear away. Then come out of the tomb. It's not as hard as you think, so be ready for your next telemarketer. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
