Fan First Heard Gospel from Tom Milnes

We recently got this cool email from a fan in Louisiana
I have been receiving your emails and listening to your songs for a few years now, and I am thrilled to read about the stories of lives being changed and blessed through your ministry. I am so glad you keep pushing forward even when it's tough. We forwarded this email to Tom and his wife, Barb, today. Barb saw it before Tom did and responded immediately:
Music played a vital role in my salvation. I was 17 and just learning to play guitar when I heard of a band that was practicing. I went and instead of hearing them practice I heard the Gospel from Tom Milnes. Thirty years later I am leading worship for our kids at our church here in Louisiana.

I remember him well. He used to come to The Haven coffeehouse when we were there. Nice young man. So glad to hear he is still serving the Lord!Tom Milnes is the "Joe Walsh of ApologetiX," an incredibly funny guitar whiz who had a successful solo career long before joining us. Although Tom only tours with us occasionally as a fill-in now, he is more active with us than ever in the studio.
In fact, he was just in the studio with Jimmy at Red Apple Audio Workshop on Thursday, October 9, working on some new tracks. You've heard Tom's golden voice doing back-up vocals on our CDs and downloads, but he's also a dynamic songwriter, with lyrics full of heart, humility and humor.
Last year, we introduced a collection of 15 our favorite Tom Milnes solo tracks in a special download collection. It's free with your donation of any amount to our ministry. That's Tom's gift to us and our gift to you. You can find it along with our other downloads for a donation at http://apologetix.com/store/store.php
