ApologetiX in Missouri This Saturday, Iowa Next Sa

1. WHERE HAVE WE BEEN?

Sorry we've been out of touch, but as most of you know, my wife, Lisa, gave birth to our second child (and second daughter), Heather, two weeks ago, and we've been very, very busy!

My in-laws were in town last week, and our older daughter, Janna, graduated from pre-school. This week, however, Heather is keeping us busy all by herself! It seems our little girl is something of a night owl, just like her dad, but she's younger than I am, so she can go much longer! In fact, if you listen closely, you can hear her starting to cry in the background right as I type this! But Mommy is watching her for the moment.

On top of that, I'm back in the studio laying vocal tracks for our upcoming CD, "Grace Period," with our producer, Karl. We're having a lot of fun, but it takes a long time!

Consequently, I don't have the time right now to write out your next two clues for "Grace Period," but I promise to try my best to get them to you ASAP! Don't worry; you'll have the clues for all 20 songs before the CD comes out!


2. CONCERT THIS SATURDAY IN MISSOURI

This weekend, we return to concert action for a big concert with one of our favorite radio stations, Spirit FM, in Camdenton MO! We've met so many of you from that area, and we're looking forward to seeing you again!

5. KARL'S KORNER

From our lead guitarist/producer, Karl Messner:

Every time we see someone getting into apologetics because of ApologetiX, we say, Now THAT'S what it's all about!" and Keith asks, "The Hokey Pokey?"

I've been working with a few bands to help get them started, and I'll tell you more about them down the road, but I shared with them the story of my friend from Chicago who started reading a chapter of the bible a day on my challenge, and at 15 has been all the way through several times. I share story after each show, and over 200 people around the country have started reading with me.

We passed out > free donuts, coffee, lemade, candy, stuff like that, and then just asked for > a donation for our youth group. We got to talk to ALOT of people.

6. APOLOGETIX IN UKRAINE?

Here's an e-mail we got this week from, ? , a fan in the Ukraine:

8. NEW APOLOGETIX FAN WEBSITE

A few weeks ago, we made mention of some ApologetiX fans with websites, discussion groups and web rings. Although these are non-official sites, and we don't control their content, we like to let you know they're out there. Anyway, here's a new one from ApologetiX super-fan Don Riefstahl:

God bless you all!

Apologetically,
