We Need Help, Las Vegas Sends Encouragement
Sun., Jul. 15. 2018 2:06pm EDT

J. Jackson, lead singer and lyricist for ApologetiX here.

I saw the movie Superman II recently. Hoping to live a normal life, he uses a machine to remove his powers. It doesn't take long before he opts to revert to his invulnerable self. I don't blame him.

However, my pastor showed in a recent sermon that the closest relationships form when people open up and are vulnerable about their struggles. That must be why we're so close with our fans.

It's been two months since our last appeal. The good news is we've overcome our computer woes and are releasing singles again. The bad news is that the band and I have many bills due/overdue right now, and ApX is several months behind paying me again.

In the midst of that, God sends encouragement. A fan in Las Vegas named Daniel Schieberl emailed Friday asking if there was a place on our website where he could write about ApX. He gave us permission to share it here:

"I have been Christian since 1992 but wasn't introduced to you until 2008, when I took over leadership of our children's ministry. After one listen, I was hooked. I've since bought 28 albums. I love them. Many have great Bible lessons and I use them in children's church. The kids love them.

"Our church also does concerts in parks around our city. Recently our puppet team was asked to perform and of course they lip-synced to ApologetiX. We had a great turnout, with many children and parents answering a call to accept Jesus. It was one of our most fruitful outreaches.

"I also listen to your albums at work, when driving around with new trainees, in my car when I travel, and in my home when it's time for family game night. I love what you do. Please keep up the good work."

If you'd like to help us keep up the good work, there are different ways you can do so:

1. Pray (the most important thing)
2. Get singles, CDs, DVDs, etc. at http://apologetix.com/store
3. Get our USBs at http://apologetix.com/store/store.php#USB
4. Give online at http://apologetix.com/store/store-donate.php
5. Give by mail: ApologetiX, 208 Charlemma Dr., Pittsburgh PA 15214

Your friend,

J.
