"I got an amazing but not surprising news for you, 'JC's Mom' got the 2nd place in our chart this week due to hundred of calls requesting the song. We have received calls from Christian and non-Christian people. There's a testimony from a guy that called to the station and said:
"'I've never been Christian, I see Christianity and the Christian music as such a boring thing. A friend of mine told me to listen to your program and when I first listened to you I realize that the lyrics of that band were different from the original, then you said that the name of the band is ApologetiX then I Googled for it in the Net, What a marvelous thing when I saw most of the songs I use to listen with an incomparable powerful message on it!
"'I grew up listening to those songs, and now I can see that there's a different way to spread the message without being boring. I'd like that most of the christian were like ApologetiX, I'm starting to love ApologetiX. Now I can see or listen to christian music in a different way. Time has changed, not the music but the lyrics.'
"This is one of the reasons why I thank the Lord for your life and ministry. Keep on going. God bless you!!!"
