This Past Weekend IN & MO
Sun., Mar. 22. 2009 7:47pm EDT
We played two concerts this past weekend in New Castle IN and Hannibal MO, the home of Mark Twain. It was our first trip of 2009 to each state, although they rank fourth and seventh respectively on the list of states we've played the most.
Here's a nice comment from Saturday's show:
I pastor a small rural church, and I took some youth from church to the concert in Hannibal MO. They had never been to any concert before and the impact that your music had was wonderful. Keep up the good work. The testimony time was very good. Special thanks to:
I've used your music to witness to a few people that I know that aren't Christians, but they are music buffs. They really listened and then started asking questions about what some of the lyrics meant. God bless you.
Andy Lattin, Pastor
Prairie View Baptist Church
Our concert coordinators: Jody Zachary (New Castle) and Jeff Voepel (Hannibal). Jeff and his wife, Donna, are long-time fans and friends of ApologetiX and operate a place called Heaven Sent Bed & Breakfast, which has ApologetiX memorabilia displayed on the wall and even has a bedroom called the ApologetiX Room! It's quite a stately structure, and we had the honor of staying there on Saturday night.
Our merchandise coordinators: Vickie (New Castle); and Sandy and Donna (Hannibal).
Our bus driver: Rich "Aquaman" Polick, who has now traveled a total of 65,000 miles to see ApologetiX concerts (by car, bus, and plane), including 20,000 miles driving the ApologetiX bus.
