Neat Notes from Five Fans in AZ, KY, NE, OH & ON

Here are some other neat emails we received recently that we'd like to share with you:
Praise the Lord! Thank you all!
Two more excellent parodies! I especially like "Talk to Doctors" about those healings that God provides that doctors are shocked by. It's about my wife! Carol was diagnosed with chronic hepatitis C and then received healing at a church service. When she had a follow up test the doctor was shocked that it was gone. I'm sure many doctors must have similar cases they can't explain but the faithful can. Great reminder of God's continuing work in people's lives.
I download your new parodies into my phone and use many as the tune on my alarm. I have to set it for two to three minutes early so I can listen to the whole thing.
I want to share an incident with you. My grandson loves your music and my wife hates it.
My grandson was talking to my wife about one of your songs. He came into my office asking if I knew which song he was thinking about. It was "Shepherd's Paradise" from Ticked. He found it on his phone and left. He played the song for my wife. They started to talk about it. My wife opened her Bible, and they had an impromptu study on Psalms 23 and John 10.
I thought you would like to see the effect that your music is having on an 11-year-old boy and his grandmother, who hates your music. Thank you so much for your music ministry.

Your music is a real blessing for me and I share ApologetiX with many friends, family, and strangers I meet. Just yesterday, I met two people at the store. They were much younger than me but were talking about how their parents loved the classic rock tunes of the 70's and 80's. They were also wearing tee shirts that advertised the church they attend, so I asked if they'd ever heard of ApologetiX, to which I received a blank stare. They both were very interested and started to look you up on Spotify.
I whipped out my phone and brought up your songbook and asked them to name a song that they remember. After doing a quick cross reference, I was able to play them the ApologetiX version. They were able to read the lyrics and listen to the song at the same time, and you now have two more fans who both said that they wanted to let their music leader know about you and, of course, could not wait to tell their parents.
After we said our goodbyes, I smiled and thought to myself how your music could affect and infect several more lives with just one song. You guys are truly a blessing and your four-minute sermons are spot on. Thank you for your time, talents, ministry and of course, great music.

Last night after work, I was in the fitness room with my ApX thumb drive plugged in to the sound system blasting away. Another officer came in to work out right about when "Strangest Folks" began playing. I asked him if he'd heard of ApologetiX before. He said, "No, that's Ted Nugent." I said, "Listen closer." He said, "Man that's amazing; I thought I was listening to Ted Nugent." I then played your 80's medley and then one of my favorites, "Hell Is Warmer," and explained it's the same people, same singer, etc. I loved seeing his reactions. I think I found a new fan for you!
Thank you again for persisting through adversity. We appreciate your ministry.
