ApologetiX Needs Help & Prayer Now

J. Jackson, lead singer and lyricist for ApologetiX here.
I've reconnected with many old friends recently. Unfortunately, it was while visiting funeral homes for four different people. I had to say this a lot: "Sorry to see you under these circumstances."
Today I have a similar sentiment; I love reconnecting with ApX fans, but not under these circumstances. However, the band has quite a few overdue bills right now (including paying some band members) and is still several months behind in paying me.
I prayed for days before writing this. When we send out appeals, we try not to keep pounding the issue into the ground once the needs of the moment are met. We're not looking to pay off our mortgages, just to get our bills up to date so we can carry on.
My Bible reading this morning was very encouraging. I'm in 1 Kings 16-18, and I read how God sent ravens to feed Eljiah and gave a widow a supply of oil and flour that didn't run out, plus how Elijah predicted a downpour after a long drought when there wasn't a cloud in the sky.
We're getting plenty of encouragement from fans, too. I've assembled examples from 22 different states (all received since August 1), which we've included below in this week's newsletter.
I think our latest CD (which is finally in stock) and our last three singles (which should be on the next CD), represent some of our finest work, and our fans seem to agree. Meanwhile, I'm typing this after spending a day in the studio recording vocals for two new songs.
So we're not giving up, but we do need help. If you'd like to help, there are different ways you can do so:
