Encouraging Emails from Four Fans
Sat., Apr. 30. 2022 1:01pm EDT

We are always blessed by the encouraging emails we receive from fans. Here are four recent ones that touched our hearts. We hope they'll touch yours, too.

Chris and I were talking today about the first time we heard of ApologetiX. It was June 2004, and we were in the hospital with our son, who was injured in a terrible motocross accident. Our youth group bought him the Jesus Christ Morning Star CD as a gift. He was in a medically induced coma, so I opened his gift.

Looking at the songs on the back of the CD, I remember think was is going on here? Parodies, what a cool way to spread the Word.

In April 2006, we attended our first concert in Schoolcraft MI. The show was at a small church, so small that when J. was singing, I got a globule of spit on me. You know how that is, right, Keith? I have to say it was from that moment, we went from fans to APXFREX.

We decided it was time to host a concert, and in September 2006, we did just that. What a great day. We were able to hang out with the band most of the day and then listened to you play for about 180 people. Hard to believe that was 16 years ago. There is nothing like ApologetiX live! All total we were able to attend about 30 concerts.

Even though the live concerts are few and far between these days, we are thankful for all the concerts we were able to attend and also that the music has not stopped flowing. Our son Jake made a full recovery from his accident, he and his family currently live in Alaska. Jake owns his own business.

Thank you, LORD, for taking a bad situation and turning it to something great. Thank you for the music our friends from Pittsburgh have blessed us with for the past 18 years. May they continue for many years to come.

Just wanted to tell you about an interesting thing here at work: I was listening to the ApologetiX parody "Get Serene," when a link to a video from the President of the college came in. In it, she was talking about how she took some time off to get away so she could listen to what God wanted for the college this coming year.

She, of course, spoke about how Jesus would do that from time to time. I sent her the lyrics for this song and told her I was listening to it when her message came in. I thought it was pretty interesting as far as the timing. She appreciated the lyrics.

I'm starting a new job next week! Same company, but I've been promoted from GSW (general service worker) to bus mechanic! Basically moving from bus maintenance to diagnosis and repair.

As far as I know, I'm pretty much the only "practicing" Christian in my work area. I have access to the radio two to three days per week and play my "parody mix radio station" for all to hear. Most people don't mind at all. (There is no music on days when I don't provide the tunes). Now for a funny story:

So one day a co-worker of mine tells me she was riding around in the car with her spouse and she was singing along with the radio and her spouse says "What the heck are you singing? Those aren't the right words to this song!" She had been singing the parody lyrics without even realizing it! We all cracked up! The Lord works in mysterious ways!

We have used you music doing puppet shows in our church and for church outreaches for over 20 years in our home state of California as well as in Mexico, Germany, and Austria! Now we are in Oregon and hope to continue! May the LORD bless you guys!

My wife, Alice (a.k.a. Bible Betty), has been the driving force in our puppet ministry since the beginning. Each of our family members — including our son, daughter, and son-in-law — along with many others from several different churches have been involved through out the years.

The LORD has opened doors for us to take His message through the ministry of puppetry to churches, schools, hospitals, senior centers, parks, fairs, rescue missions and both small and large Christian outreach events.

My wife constantly states that it is the puppets that draw the children, but it is the music that draws the adults. They often recognize the music, but the lyrics catch them often off guard. The gospel message is then given by the script and in the words of your music.

Thank you for what you do and may the LORD continue to use your to draw both the young and old to Himself!
