Interesting News from Scotland

Here's some interesting news from our biggest booster in Scotland, Doug Watson:
"Last week (on Thursday) I had the opportunity of sharing the music of ApologetiX with some Mormons! Bizzare I know.
"Anyway, there were a couple of Mormon kids in our store in the music department where I work and I asked them what kind of music they liked. They told me that as missionaries there were certain kinds of music they were forbidden to listen to. When I asked what that was I was told it included stuff like rock music.
"I probed them a bit to discover what kind of artists they listened to and they told me stuff like Metallica, Guns n' Roses, The Eagles, and other rocky stuff. At this point they were standing near the section where we keep your music. I then went on to tell them a little about what you guys are doing with the music and played 'Enter Samson,' 'Welcome to the Judges,' and 'Hotel Can't Afford Ya.'
"They thought it was amazing and although they probably would get into trouble for listening to it they decided to buy 'Keep the Change' and 'New and Used Hits' ... bet you've never had that one before!
"Hope all you guys are well. Praying for your ministry and still enjoying your music and being involved in sharing the blessing that your CD's bring. Give my love to all the band and to your families."
