ApologetiX Needs Help & Prayers

J. Jackson, lead singer and lyricist for ApologetiX here.
Some fans got this message Friday, but many didn't, and this one includes an update (unfortunately, not a pleasant one).
I believe I was made for this job; it combines what I love most with what I do best. As Liam Neeson said in the movie Taken, "I don't have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills."
Alas, as the one who handles the finances for both the band and my family, right now I also have a very particular set of bills.
Once again, the band has a number of large bills coming due, and they're still six months behind on paying me.
Last week, I had to make an expensive visit to the hospital to get treated for a lingering illness. Friday morning, our minivan broke down and had to be towed to the shop.
Today, I found out it needs a new (used) engine, which will cost $3300, including installation. Yes, that's the unpleasant update.
Asking for financial support is not one of my skills, and I wish it weren't part of my job. But, as I've found out, it's a part of ministry.
I always go to God with our needs before coming to you with them. No matter where our provision comes from, it ultimately comes from Him. But if you'd like to assist, any of these will help:
1. Pray (if you can do no more than that, it's still a lot).
2. Get any of our CDs, DVDs, singles, or songbook.
3. Donate online 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.
Donations aren't tax deductible, but they're a huge part of keeping this ministry going. Thank you!
