ApologetiX Band Update: Needs Help and Prayers

Should we quit just because our vehicles do?

With our recent transportation trials, some fans have asked, "Do you think God wants you to call it quits?" We've certainly prayed about that, and God knows we're open to whatever He wants us to do.

But remember: Our main challenge has been vehicle problems. If God were closing a door for us, we think He'd do more than just allow us to have vehicle problems.

Concert attendance is the best we've seen in years, and the band members are playing well together, both on stage and off. Many people tell us our latest CD is our best yet. And fans are urging us to carry on.

The economy's lousy, but God continues to provide when we make our needs known. Often it's through fans we've never heard from before, but there are many others who give regularly. Either way, it's encouraging!

In the meantime, God continues to provide new ideas and lyrics, and we feel like we're growing closer to Him through these trials.

The Apostle Paul faced shipwrecks, imprisonments, stonings, and rejections from both enemies and friends, but he still didn't give up, because he knew what he had been called to do.

Ultimately, God speaks to the hearts of those who honestly seek Him, giving them the hope to carry on. Although we have moments of despair, we feel God strengthening us and leading us onward.

J. Jackson, lead singer and lyricist for ApologetiX here.

Some fans have had trouble getting our newsletters lately, so I'm sending this special email to everyone.

I wish I had better news to report.

Our mechanic has finished his repairs on our new bus.  They cost more than the bus itself!

The total costs associated with purchasing and repairing this new bus have been about $10,500.

In the past year or so, if you count repairs to both buses, trailer replacement, van rentals, and lost revenue from  concerts cancelled by vehicle problems, we are now up to over $75,000 in unexpected expenses.

We just weren't built to absorb that.  A number of fans have helped, but frankly, we need more help.

I know that many fans are not able to help financially.  If that's you, we totally understand.  I'm in the same boat.

But please pray for us.  This is not only killing our finances; it's killing our morale.

If you want to help financially, please go to: http://www.apologetix.com/store/store-donate.php

If you prefer to mail a check or money order, please make it out to "ApologetiX" and send it to:

208 Charlemma Drive
Pittsburgh PA  15214-1414

Thanks again.  God bless you.

Your friend,


J. Jackson
