Million Dollar Bill in Memphis, TN...

Today I traveled to Memphis, TN where I will be working this week. I drove straight through so needless to say, when I got here I was tired and hungry. I ordered dinner from the onsite restaurant so I wouldn't have to go out. I paid for my food and then gave the gentleman a million dollar bill. He thanked me and as he turned to leave he looked down at it then stopped and said "I already have one of these". I thought he was turning around to give it back to me but he looked at me and said "a man gave me one of these in place of a tip". He said "but he gave me my first million dollar bill and now you have given me my second one" and kind of laughed it off. I was caught off guard by what he said so I just apologized for what that man had done and asked him to read what the million dollar bill said because it was important. He said that he would and then left.

I was thrilled to see that the million dollar bill has made it to Memphis, TN but saddened that it was used in the way that it was. I pray that God will give me another opportunity to speak to him this week and find out if he read it!
