I met Nate Fowler through his music. At the time, I was on my way to Boise, Idaho to speak at a Courage Conference hosted by C2BU and Nate’s church, Foothills Community Church. Nate and I spoke on the phone a few times prior to the conference. I had no idea during those conversations that God had broken Nate’s heart for children rescued out of sex trafficking until I listened to his song “Call Me Family” on his website.
The words pierced my soul.
I literally heard the voices of children from around the world singing with Nate, asking me and asking the church… who will call me family?
I am thrilled that Nate has joined our efforts at C2BU to build Courage Houses—homes for victims rescued out of sex trafficking—by performing (when his schedule allows) at our benefit concert/sex trafficking awareness events. The first time I heard Nate perform at one of our concerts, a young woman who knows firsthand the horrors of being sold for sex, told Nate that his song was her prayer and that, through the efforts of C2BU, she now has a family.
Nate’s song should challenge us all!
C2BU is excited to partner with Nate, as well as Aaron Schnobrich, the producer of C2BU’s Believe in Me video, to create a music video for “Call Me Family.” Production on this project began in early February 2011, with an expected release date of May 2011. Thank you Nate for allowing God to use your voice and your music to bring attention to this vulnerable and often invisible population!
