From a Fan of the Band on the Way to VA

It's always a treat when we get to meet fans while we're on the road or in an airport going to or from a concert. That happened to us recently at a convenience store on our way to Virginia. Here's a follow-up email from the guy we ran into:
Just a quick messsage to say it was really cool and fun to run into you guys at the PA turnpike Donegal exit BP gas/convenience store this past Friday. At that time, you were heading to a show near DC for the night. I wanted to again congratulate you on the new disc. Awesome and nice review in HM. Hope to see you guys again live soon.
I was thinking as I drove away how long I have been a fan of your music. I figured I have been a fan since 1999 or 2000. I admire your perserverance through the years. Where many bands would hang it up, even after numerous personnel changes, the Apologetix are still full steam ahead.
What you are doing for kids and fans of all ages, is admirable and at the same time envious. You continue to touch people's lives through your music, and there is nothing greater than this. It must be awesome to see and know exactly what God will have you do. So thanks for the many years of music, the tough nights of low attendaance, and still providing music to us as fans where music resonates in our hearts. Thanks for making a difference, because you do.
Best of success through the remaining winter and spring gigs. I pray for your safety and the lives you touch each night.
Great to see you again.

Editor's Note: Bill was also the one who notified us about the HM Review -- otherwise we might have missed it. Thanks so much for the encouragement, Bill!
