Two weeks ago, we sent out an appeal letter and included 10 recent testimonials from fans in 10 states, showing why we feel encouraged to keep doing what we do. This week, we still have needs that need to be met, but we also have six new testimonials to share, including two from Canada. We'll start and finish with those:
Love your songs. I really appreciate your thoughtful insight into the scriptures in a fun way. Teaching my newcomers class tonight — spiritual gifts. Will close with "You Might Stink," which captures the entire lesson! Thanks to all of you out there who encourage us!
Also, in Wednesday morning Bible study, we're going through Hosea as a type of Christ. Love your take on "Josie," a very fitting parody! I am a big Steely Dan fan, which makes it even more fun.
P.S. Thought your take on Matthew's genealogy of Jesus, "Bad Foreign Girls," was brilliant!
With much appreciation for your cool ministry,
Rev. Leslie Boyd

I would love to see you guys in concert if you ever come back up this way. I have followed you from afar, off and on, for 15 years, checking occasionally on YouTube for new videos. I am looking forward to introducing my two teenagers to your music through the USB drive.
I love you guys. Listen to you most days a work. We (the team I work with) get a kick out of playing your songs in rental cars while on work trips, with Project Manager "naming that (original) tune" quickly all the time, every song. Keep up the good work.
With newer rental cars, I have to hold my hand over the screen so co-workers can't see your "parodized" name of the song, just to make them really have to come up with it all on their own. I then sometimes (get to) give the background Bible story that is the basis of your song. I love how you do that, and so well, how you tie an entire song (often) to one Bible story.
Last trip we made to California, I had to play "Crowd Of Foreign Girls." It was a real hit. Thanks for all you do. God bless you all and the work of your hands (and brains, and vocal cords).

My son and I just finished doing devotions by reviewing the lyrics and scripture references for "You've Got a Text". The truth of God's word remains true regardless of the changing times and values! Thanks for the new songs. We listened to them already and really enjoyed them!
I've always been blessed by the music of Apologetix since the 90's. Your music is worth so much more than I can give, but your faithfulness to the King will surely be rewarded!
I grew up in the 80s metal era. In 1993, I got saved because of Christian metal (Deliverance, Barren Cross, Sacred Warrior). I discovered you guys — Fantastic!!! My favourite songs from you guys are "Drop Your Knife and Hurry Man" and "No More Me Wise Guy."
The Abraham song is so well done. I don't have the means but if you guys could ever come to Winnipeg, it would be great.
