ApologetiX Needs Help & Prayers Again
Mon., Jul. 6. 2015 8:57am EDT
J. Jackson, lead singer and lyricist for ApologetiX here again.
It's been a while since I've had to say this, but we need help and prayers again for the band. I'm thankful that we haven't had to share a letter like this in four months. That's much better than last year! However, now the band has some major bills coming due that our current income from CDs, singles, and concerts won't take care of.
There are many operating costs involved in running this band, plus vehicle repairs and other debts. Furthermore, ApologetiX is still over five months behind on my paychecks. God continues to provide for my family in many ways, but now we need some more help (especially with a daughter starting college), and getting paid would help.
As we reach the mid-point of 2015, we've already been able to release two albums this year, and still hope to release at least two more by December, Lord willing.
Counting the new singles we've released this year and the new tracks that were only included on CD, we've released 30 new tracks in the first six months. And there are many more in the works. Not only that, God helped me write six and a half new songs in the past two weeks.
We're already scheduled to play more concerts this year than last. We just added two new shows. And we've been able to pay off three longstanding debts (each required five years of payments) recently, and we praise God for that!
So those are all positive signs. Of course, the best signs are the encouraging messages we keep receiving from fans all over the world.
If you'd like to help us continue, any of these four things would help:
1. Pray (it's free, and it helps us a lot!)
2. Get CDs or singles at apologetix.com/store
3. Make an online donation at: apologetix.com/store/store-donate.php
4. Donate by check payable to "ApologetiX" and sent to ApologetiX, 208 Charlemma Drive, Pittsburgh PA 15214-1414.
Although the donations aren't tax deductible, they will be put to good use immediately. Thank you and God bless you.
If you're facing financial challenges yourself, don't worry about us. We'll be happy to pray for you and send you some free music downloads as our gift. Just send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know.
