South Africa Crowded with ApologetiX Fans

If three's a crowd, like the old saying goes, then there's a crowd of ApologetiX fans in South Africa. Located at the southern tip of Africa, the Republic of South Africa has a population of almost 50 million, including at least three ApologetiX fans.
Actually, we've been hearing from people in South Africa for years now, and our CDs are available there, but in the past week, we've heard from the three different fans there. Here's some of what they had to say:
I must just compliment the band. The music is excellent and I really feel uplifted spiritually after listening to the music. Usually if I listen to secular music a feel down afterwards but listening to your music revitalize my soul.
Keep up the good work. Greetings from sunny South Africa! God's richest blessing for the band.
Hope you could do a gig here in South Africa! (We are all in Johannesburg).
Also I thank God for the great music and I pray that God will richly bless your band – delighted to be listening. I have copied family, friends and Pastors, here in South Africa on this mail – I hoping they will do the same!
Beloved brothers and sisters, please visit the site www.apologetix.com and feast your tympanic membranes on parodies of the Beatles; the eagles; Eminem; Queen…and many more - given new titles; Christian lyrics and so beautifully executed instrumentally and vocally! Remain blessed.
I actually heard your music for the first time While on holiday in New Zealand on NZ Rhema Radio. I recorded a few songs from radio, as I was always facinated in parody music. As a young BA believer in the 60's and 70's, we tried doing parodies so it always stuck with me. So hearing your music struck a real chord.
When I returned to SA, I tried to find your cds, but no stores had them. I then looked you up on the internet and ordered about five CDs. I recently decided that I needed to catch up with you guys and ordered the ones I do not have. I have played the music for other friends who enquired where i found it. I gave them your web address. Hopefully they visited your shop too. Cheers for now.
