7.Upcoming Concerts (New Additions Include Nevada!)
Thanks to everybody who showed up to see the concerts last weekend in Alabama/Atlanta, and Punxsutawney PA! We had a great time. It was nice to see so many old friends in Punxsutawney and to make so many new friends down South, including the guys in the other bands, Goodside, Like Isaiah and Fusebox, whom I'm told have the #1 Christian rock hit in the nation right now.
On Saturday and Sunday, I had two concerts in a row before which I felt de-energized before going on stage (mainly from lack of sleep because of the flight schedule and other commitments) and yet when I hit the stage, I felt dynamite, and the feeling continued long after each show. I can only attribute that to God, and it was definitely answered prayer. In each case, when I was reminded during the show of how I'd felt beforehand, I could only thank God for doing something He's done for me many times over the years, proving how strong we are (and He is) when we are weak! Thanks to all of you who pray for us so faithfully!

6. FROM "ENTER SAMSON" TO "ENTER JESUS"
Here's an excerpt from a very encouraging email we recently received from Larry Bowers, who first heard us on WCTL out of Waterford PA:
"I do want to tell you that your music does reach people. My friend who at the time was not saved and was going through some very difficult times would come over. We would go downstairs into the basement and shoot darts or go into my NASCAR room and talk. Either way I 'd always put your music because it was the style he was most comfortable with. After about the third time of this, he noticed it was not the original version and began to ask questions.
At first he was very hard-headed about God did not want to hear it. I did not push. He kept asking questions about your music, and the stories behind it. So I 'd tell him, let him ask what he wanted & leave it. He asked about Samson and the Metallica song you did, what that was about, surely that was Hercules. So I read to him in Judges about Samson, the door opened further & further, until he came to church with us and got SAVED!! AWESOME! I'd like to believe that it was your music, making him think and opening a pretty hard door .
Whatever criticism you took or are taking and everything you took to get where you are, We appreciate the talent that God has given you guys! Keep up the Great work!"
Thanks, Larry! That's awesome!

1 Timothy 3:16
(NIV) Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great: He appeared in a body, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.
 3:16 Some manuscripts say "God"  3:16 Or "in the flesh"
