“Duck Dynasty” stars Miss Kay and Phil Robertson are known for their kind deeds and penchant for sharing the gospel — and during a recent trip to NYC and Washington D.C., a simple gesture from Miss Kay led to a transformative conversation.
Miss Kay explained in a video uploaded to Phil Robertson’s Facebook page on Thursday that she decided to seek out the maid who cleaned her room so she could give her a thank you gift, explaining how the interaction sparked a conversation about the gospel.
“I went to find the lady that cleaned my room … and I found her and she thought she was in trouble,” Miss Kay said. “But I said, ‘No, I just want to give you something’ and I gave her something and then I gave her a big hug and I kissed her on the cheek.”
It was all because of one little hug and a kiss on the cheek from Miss Kay in NYC …

The cleaning woman began to cry and continued to hug Miss Kay, which surprised the former A&E star quite a bit.
But then Miss Kay learned later on that her decision to hug the woman actually was “a big deal,” as it was the first time a customer had ever shown her such respect.
“In her 14 years working there she had never been hugged by a customer,” Miss Kay said.
But the interaction didn’t end there, as Phil Robertson proceeded to speak with the cleaning woman about the central message of the Bible: Jesus Christ’s life, death and resurrection.
“I got a piece of paper and I drew an arrow coming down out of heaven … I said, ‘Two thousand seventeen years ago, year one, God came down in flesh.’ She said, ‘Really?'” he recounted. “I said, ‘Yup … he died on the cross for all of our sins, yours and mine. And they put him in a tomb, three days later he resurrected from the dead, he came back to life.'”
Phil Robertson asked the woman if she believed this message — that all her sins were removed — and she said that she did.
“Tears came in her eyes. She said, ‘Oh my goodness, really?’ I said, ‘That’s what happened,'” he continued. “I said, ‘Find you a Bible and I’ll write these verses down and you can check those.'”
The interaction proves, once again, that a simple act of kindness can go quite a long way.
Phil Robertson is the star of the new CRTV show, “In the Woods With Phil.”
