Good News This Past Wkd: Great Fans and Helpers
Tue., Jun. 30. 2009 12:38am EDT

Although we had significant trouble with our bus and trailer this past weekend in Louisville KY and Lake City AR, our fans and our helpers were great as always. We might not always have AC on our way to a concert, but we always have great fans to make things cool we get there.

We had fans who came from as far as New Orleans to see the show in Arkansas -- a round trip of almost 1000 miles. Then again, we did travel over 1600 miles round trip to see them! :) Here's what they had to say in an email afterward:

Just writing to say how much we love ApologetiX! We made it to the Lake City AR concert, and were glad y'all did, too! Truly our God is gracious, what with the trailer-hitch incident and all. It was worth the distance and the wait! Be encouraged that God sees your hard work and diligence out of a devoted heart, week in and week out. We were totally blessed by the unique ministry God has given ApologetiX to challenge and uplift the Body, and preach the gospel to the lost. We hope ya'll are able to make it to the New Orleans area in the near future.

Here are some comments from fans who attended Friday's show in Louisville:
The pastor's girls and I thoroughly enjoyed the show in Louisville. I have been to six of your shows and have never seen you guys any better. I am so impressed how you can keep your enthusiasm and energy at such a high level. In a time when the world continues to grow darker, it is such a blessing and real joy to come to a place and watch fellow Christians having a good time and at the same time teaching and sharing Christ's Word.

My husband and I really enjoyed your concert last night in Louisville, and so did my sister-in-law who came with us. You all are so very talented, and I'm sure you feel so blessed to have been given such gifts to use for God's glory.

I wanted to share something with you all that has been on my heart. Last weekend I attended an event where I found myself standing next to Rod Stewart. The novelty of standing next to this global rock superstar couldn't compare to the enjoyment last night of watching you guys as you ministered to your audience, then engaged them with a fantastic performance. The music and lyrics are so much fun, and it amazes us how you all sound so much like the original artists.

From my perspective, Rod Stewart is the world's superstar, but you all are superstars for God's kingdom, and there is no greater reward or recognition. When you touch someone in the audience, they may already be saved, but you are giving them confirmation of what they already know. That support is very much needed from both a child and an adult perspective. Then again, you may bring someone to Christ through your ministry, and even if it's only one, that one will go on to touch the lives of many throughout their life.

Special thanks to:

Our concert coordinators: Chris Ward (Louisville) and Brother Larry Ward (Lake City). Although they share the same last name, Chris and Larry are not related.

Our merchandise coordinators: Rachel and Hayley (Louisville); and Cydni and Karen (Lake City).

Our sound crew: Jerry "Jammin' Jerry Jangles" Hayostek and Louie (a.k.a. "Leo") Merriman.

Our bus driver: Super Dave Johnson of Manton MI, who celebrated the two-year anniversary of the bus' maiden voyage with us by driving it again, just as he did for that 10-day tour. Super Dave spent a lot of time with the various people who helped try to get our bus and trailer back on the road this past weekend, much of it without the benefit of air conditioning.

Honorable mention to: Tony the welder in Lake City AR and the rest of the folks at Refuge Baptist Church, who were so helpful in picking us up, getting us set up, and helping us pack up.
