Touching Testimony from William in Wisconsin

Here's a touching testimony we received this past week from a fan in Wisconsin:
Longtime fan here. Started listening to you in 2001ish. Was working as a youth past, and one of the kids had found a CD of yours at a second-hand CD tore. With a name like ApoogetiX, we figured you were Christian metal. Was thankfully quite surprised. I also worked in radio at the time, and was able to get Keep the Change, Spoofernatural, Biblical Graffiti, and Grace Period in a media kit.
Unfortunately, the radio station wouldn't let me put them into rotation; however, I did (allegedly) use them on-air for commercial bumps and for filler. I got to see you guys several times on Green Bay at Cup O Joy. Also saw you once here in Mahomet IL for the Sangamon River Fest. And I (almost) hosted a concert, but your van broke down on the way here to Champaign-Urbana, IL.
I wanted to say thank you so much for your music. I got COVID in January. Went into a coma. The doctors told my wife that she needed to get the family and friends to come see me as I would not make it. I had multiple-organ shutdown and was on dialysis for a period of time. I had many people praying for me, and God worked a miracle and I came out of the coma about four weeks later, though my earliest memory takes place about two weeks after I woke up.
I have many of your songs on my phone, so my wife would play them for me while I was in the coma. Due to the coma, my muscles deteriorated so I could not walk or move or feed myself etc. I got moved to inpatient rehab. I was always playing ApX on my phone, and would catch the nurses singing along, until they realized that the words were "wrong."
There is a unique look people have when that happens, especially as you mimic a lot of the voices so well. Of course, it was usually followed up with them asking about the music. It opened the door fore to witness to them. Several nurses even became new believers, and a couple became new ApX fans.
Anyways, love your music. You guys have really got talent to spare. Keep following the Lord, and I hope to see you in concert sometime soon.
