1. JIMMY & EVE UPDATE

As many of you know, ApX drummer and recording engineer Jimmy "Vegas" Tanner and his wife, Eve, were in a serious motorcycle accident on August 27. We know many of you have been praying for them. Jimmy sent us the following update Monday afternoon:

"Just got back from my first orthopedic doctor appointment. I had 40 staples removed and updated X-rays. My femur is in five pieces. A rod is holding them all together. He said things are healing/looking good.

"The doctor ordered outpatient physical therapy, which I'm looking forward to. The bone could take months to mend, but I could be be walking with one crutch or cane within a couple weeks.

"I can bend my knee 80 degrees, which is really good! The doctor wants to see me in six weeks for more x-rays and to check on progress. I plan on drumming in the next couple of days. We should be able to get you back in the studio at Red Apple Audio Workshop in a couple weeks. Lord willing.

"Eve is improving as well. All of her injuries are continuing to heal nicely. Sounds little more like herself everyday. She is still on short-term disability as she continues to recover."

We praise God for the great progress report! Thank you all your prayers.

We now have fewer than 20 of our ApologetiX 30th Anniversary challenge coins left.

These beautiful coins are 1.75" in diameter and 3 mm thick, made of zinc alloy and hard enamel. One side recognizes the band's 30th anniversary and the other side says "That Christian Parody Band." Both sides have the band's name, the triquetra symbol, and our mission statement: "Reach the lost, teach the rest."

You can see them for yourself and read more about what they are (and how to get them) at:
