GISH 2018 – Change A Life: Rwanda

GISH 2018 – Change A Life: Rwanda


Y’all, I love GISH!  I love the craziness of it, the weirdness of it, the community of it.  Most of all, I love the extrinsic motivation to do good in the world.  Last year, the GISH community rallied the world to save a special program in South Africa.  This year, we will impact a community of Rwandan Genocide Survivors.  It is so fitting that my team is called Carry On My Wayward Sons.

Please please please, check out my team’s crowdrise campaign.  Read the remarkable story of Olive, who started a cascade of transformation through her risk of forgiveness.  Share our campaign.  Consider contributing just paid hour of your life by donating your hourly wage – in this way you are pouring your time and energy into this community even though you can’t be there to do it in person.

If you are interested in learning more about the Rwandan genocide, this is an excellent article by the UNHCR.



About Thoughts by Sallie

I am a missionary kid who grew up in Mexico. I have 2 first languages. The two most amazing places that I have seen stars are in the Amazon rain forest and at the Sea of Galilee. I have moved 34 times in my life. I think that working with at-risk foster kids for 5 1/2 years is a greater accomplishment than earning a master's degree. My most favorite meal is popcorn, apples, and cheese. I am happiest when I am being hugged by a child. Jesus is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? My life's dream is to help children become more than they could ever imagine. I have Attention-Deficit Disorder, and I take medicine every day that helps me to think straight; it's not a cure, but it sure does help. I get lonely and feel very isolated sometimes. I love nostalgia. I HATE shallowness. I love taking pictures of windows. I am most proud when I see my friends grow and accomplish new things. I am most motivated by my love for and commitment to others. I am overflowing with thoughts. I am an ellipses. I am Rasha.

I really want to know what you think!!
