EXCUSE ME, SIR Can you spare a moment for Jesus Christ?

Background

For several decades, the so-called "door-to-door evangelism" has been a common practice among numerous Christian denominations, most notably the Jehovah's Witnesses and the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In a typical visit, the missionaries would ring a stranger's door bell and ask "excuse me (sir or mam), do you have a moment to talk about our lord and savior" in an attempt to convert people into Christianity.
