Song of gratitude has power
to uplift this Haitian family
Rosana Joseph (pictured) told us through tears about the tragic losses of two children to typho-malarial fever and how she dreams of having a decent home to raise her remaining children in a safe environment instead of the unhealthy shack in which they currently live.

Now, her dream can become a reality thanks to a beautiful new song of gratitude written and performed by Sophie Davina, granddaughter of our ministry's co-founders, Millard and Linda Fuller.

And you hold the key!

Here's how it works: For each stream of "Look Back on Every Blessing" on Spotify, YouTube or iTunes today through Thanksgiving, $1 will go to building this home. It will take just 6,000 combined streams to fully fund the project. Note: You do not need to have YouTube or iTunes accounts to hear the songs for free.

It was Sophie's idea to leverage the release of her new single to support this ministry that she loves dearly. Generous donor and noted arts lover Jackie Goodman then stepped up to donate a dollar per stream. Sophie also will donate all of her royalties from the song's first two weeks of release, and you can donate directly to the project, as well.

"It's been an incredible blessing to me to follow in the footsteps of my granddad, Millard Fuller, who founded The Fuller Center based on his Christian beliefs," Sophie says. "He often taught that it was important to count your blessings in the midst of trials and that it was more blessed to give than to receive. Even though I'm not on the ground in Haiti building the house, I am so honored that I can serve The Fuller Center through my music."
