This Past Weekend: 3 in MI
Tue., Dec. 8. 2009 12:01am EST
Contrary to what you may have heard, the people of Michigan are alive and well. Times may be tough, but they showed us great support there this past weekend at our concerts in Adrian MI, Clarkston MI, and Ithaca MI.
Here are some nice comments from two of our concert promoters:
What a great concert and powerful ministry! People were still talking about it at church on Sunday morning! Since our church had never done something like this before, I was very interested in the response we would get. The general consensus was "when can we have them back?". That's exactly what I'd hoped for. Here's some great fan email we received afterward:
It was wonderful to see that well over half of our guests were not from our church making this a most effective outreach. Thanks for being so easy to work with. May God continue to richly bless you as you use His gifts to spread the Word! Thanks again for an awesome concert!
I had a blast. I am glad that you guys could come up and play, hopefully we can do it again sometime. I think the people at the show had a real good time. Thanks again for an awesome God-glorifying night.
Great show in Clarkston on Saturday night. Each of our kids brought two friends. One had never seen you guys before and told her parents about you. You made quite an impact on this nine-year-old girl (as well as the rest of us ApologetiX-concert veterans!). I asked her later if the concert was what she expected – she beamed and "no". :) You do great service work and sharing of the Word.Special thanks to:
Our concert coordinators: Pastor Greg Burdine (Adrian), David & Ronalee Burch (Clarkston), and Scott Taylor (Ithaca)
Our merchandise coordinators: Kay, Rod, and Kink (Adrian); Ruth and Heather (Clarkston and Ithaca); Danette and Kate (Clarkston), and Rob (Ithaca)
