Right on the Nose

Karl Messner, lead guitarist and producer with ApologetiX here.
We're usually VERY careful tossing CDs into the crowd so nobody gets hurt. This is a great story:
Thanks for emailing us. We saw you guys when we lived in Chattanooga. You threw out a free CD to the crowd and hit me in the face. It was so cool! After it bounced off my face it landed on the ground and some really tough looking older kid picked it up and was just celebrating his catch when my mom yelled loud enough over the music "It hit my son in the face I think God meant it for him" and he smiled and handed it over to me. My Mom said only to a Christian at a Christian concert would that have happened.
We prayed for that guy to be otherwise blessed that night and took the CD home.
We have really like your music ever since and we moved back to Florida just a few months later. Ever since we have been here we have never met anyone that heard of you so we played the cd for them and told them about you. My mom even called her church (Calvary Chapel Ft. Lauderdale) and asked if they would call you guys down for a concert there. I hope they do because I would really like to meet you all.
We thank GOD for your music. My mom and dad really like it because they say you are all such good musicians and have redeemed all the old music they didn't want to listen to amymore because the lyrics didn't glorify GOD but now they do thanks to the gift GOD has given you!!!(and a bit of pain for me, seriously it didn't really hurt very much.)
GOD bless you all and hope you get to Florida soon! Just please don't come the last part of October or first part November please.
In HIS grip,
We are planning to come to Florida in February, and we'll be sending out invitations to our fans down there to get their church to invite us. Those emails will go out after the holidays :)
