Letter from the Last Frontier
Thu., Feb. 5. 2015 11:19am EST
We're always thrilled (and chilled) when we receive correspondence from "The Last Frontier." Sorry, Captain Kirk, but that's what they call Alaska; just check the license plate if you don't believe us!
A longtime fan in our 49th state just got the complete ApologetiX library, and when we emailed to thank him and say how much we enjoyed our last trip there in 2005 and how much we'd love to come back, he said:
I, too, wish you guys could make the trip up here again.
I was fortunate to catch you at the Church of God in Soldotna, Alaska, right around New Year's day the last time you toured the state, and though your autograph on my ApologetiX t-shirt has long since faded, the memories of that evening are still pretty fresh.
Be encouraged that while you and your bandmates may not be able to be everywhere in the flesh, your music is still reaching new ears all the time. I teach at a small Christian school in Soldotna and share your songs regularly with my students. I've even been known to play them over the sound system at basketball games when our gym is filled with folks from the community.
My own kids have grown up with a steady diet of ApologetiX during long drives around Alaska. I continue to be grateful for the Lord's work though your music ministry on this earth, and am looking forward to jamming with you and Jesus in eternity!
Shout out from all your northern fans,
