Fan Introduces Kirk Cameron to APX

Our longtime fan and friend Audra Knatcal recently met Kirk Cameron, the former teen heart throb and star of the hit television series "Growing Pains," who is now a partner with fellow evangelist Ray Comfort in an apologetics-based ministry called The Way of the Master. Ever the ApologetiX booster, Audra took the time to share our ministry with Kirk, Ray, and others:
I took my mom and my brother to a "Transformed" conference featuring Ray Comfort, Kirk Cameron, and Todd Friel (http:// www.wayofthemaster.com ). I was lucky enough to get to talk with Kirk and Ray during the 30-minute break. I was wearing my blue "Story of a Squirrel" shirt and before I even got to the table where Kirk and Ray were doing autographs, Kirk was asking me about the shirt. So I explained what it was all about and, since I just happened to have some CDs on me (hehe), I gave one to both of them.
I gave Kirk "Keep the Change" and Ray "New and Used Hits." I showed Kirk where the "squirrel song" is, and kind of explained about the band in general. Kirk was kind enough to take an extra copy of Keep the Change and pass it along to Todd, whom I think will get a big kick out of "Monkey Scheme" since they talk about evolution quite a bit on the radio show. I didn't get to talk with them very long because there was a HUGE line behind me, but we had a great conversation and I was sorry to have to leave so soon. They weren't able to stick around afterwards either. :( My mom got a few pictures of me talking with Kirk and Ray; you can see each of them scouring their CD in different pictures. Love it!
Also, there was a family sitting behind us, and a lady asked about the shirt (talk about a great conversation piece). She asked if anyone ever took the time to read the back and I said, "Yeah, or I might sing it." And SHE says, "Oh, yes, I'd love that!" So I'm singing "Story of a Squirrel" in a church packed full of people and got a bit of an audience. Lovely.
I had four CDs with me, which worked out perfect. I gave three to Ray, Kirk, and Todd, and the remaining one, a copy of "New and Used Hits," I gave to those people behind us. One of the ladies looked at a kid there (I'm guessing it was her son; not sure) and said, "Look there, you've been praying for one of those, and now you have one!" That kid was the only one that really knows who you guys are, and he'd really been wanting a CD. They couldn't really afford to buy one, so they were grateful to get one!
