Congratulations to ApologetiX alumni bassist Jerry Hayostek and his wife, Melinda, who welcomed a new son, Grant, into the world this past Sunday, April 19, at 4:41 p.m. He was 20 inches long and weighed 6 lbs. 6 oz.
This is Jerry's ninth child! All of them are named U.S. presidents (no kidding), including Taylor, Madison, McKinley, Kennedy, Monroe, Carter, Quincy, Pierce. and now Grant.
Although the baby was born three weeks before the expected due date, Jerry says both Grant and Melinda are doing well. Jerry says it was a very fast delivery, and Melinda was only in labor for a couple of hours.
Jerry was the original bass player for ApologetiX from 1992-93 and has helped us with sound and set up on a number of road trips in the past 12 months. He also occasionally plays bass on a few songs (giving Keith the chance to play some guitar) and shares his testimony at concerts.
