The Heart of the Father feat. Watoto Children's Choir
After 2 years we are so excited to release "The Heart of the Father", in partnership with WATOTO, on May 14. This single is the story of the Father's rescuing-redeeming love for us, His children, but also the physical redemption of the orphaned children of Uganda
5 years ago we began a partnership with Watoto by sending musical instruments and helping with other needs through a portion of our CD sales. Our desire was to see the songs of worship we sang and wrote have life that would bring glory to God by following his call to care for the orphan. To show love to the fatherless, not just in word, but in action. We never imagined the impact it would have on us. We love Watoto. We love the model they have set up and the ministry that these rescued children are bringing to so many around the world.
In 2013 we began selling the Watoto Paper Bead Necklaces and have raised over $30,000 for the children in addition to our CD sales. Now comes the song.
"The Heart of the Father" is the story of Watoto - to Rescue : Raise Up : Rebuild a Nation. Along with James Tealy (Kari Jobe, Josh Wilson) we sat down to write their story. The story of the rescued and restored children, adopted into a family, by a father who loves them so much. This is our story, as well. This is the story of the redeemed.
Thank you for taking time to buy the song on May 14, watch the video, and share it all with your friends, family and church. 100% of all proceeds will go directly to the Children of Watoto to further see the lives of these 3,000+ children restored.
We would like to extend our thanks to our producers Ben Gowell and Michael Olson as well as Wayne Thomas who tracked the choir in Uganda, the Watoto Writers, James Tealy, Pastor Todd Gaston and our friends at Mount Ararat for covering our travel expenses for this song. Most importantly we thank the children, who we love greatly and can't wait to see all that God will do in each one.
