The Story of Raju

Psalm 145:16 “You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.”

The-Rescue-of-Raja-the-Elephant-0007I ran across the story of Raju late last night and it truly broke my heart. In the midst of all the tragedies in the world, I do not discount those that affect our wildlife. Raju suffered 50 years of torture and abuse but on July 4th he celebrated his own Independence Day. Rescuers witnessed the elephant crying out tears of pain and joy at the thought of being freed from his captors. My heart was so heavy reading the story and tears literally flowed while watching the rescue video but I just had to share. We all have a soft spot for certain causes. There are people who are passionate about children and education. Some are passionate about preserving the earth and the importance of recycling. And then there are those that have a passion for supporting the health and well-being of wildlife, and all animals for that matter. If you’re walking this earth and have never been passionate about anything outside of your little bubble, you’ve been depriving yourself from experiencing true satisfaction in knowing that your life has been a service to someone else. I’ve always been an animal lover. I can’t even watch anything animal related unless it’s guaranteed that whatever it is survives. I’m still scarred by watching the movie “Turner and Hooch” as a small child (Lol). Anyway, I’m doing my part in sharing this truly remarkable story in hopes to aide in raising financial support for his recovery.

Follow the Leader

When God gave me the vision for BASH Films, I had no idea where it would lead or how I would get started. It all began with a grad school assignment and quickly flourished into something much bigger than me. I remember asking God to show me examples of people who are doing what I believed He was calling me to do. You see, I work in entertainment and faith based content back then was pretty much non-existent. The shows that were centered around faith were “churchy” music video shows that only “church” people would watch. But God was calling me to the masses. He wanted me to infiltrate a massive machine that glamorizes promiscuity, drugs, material wealth, and beyond. His vision for me was to represent women in the light that He had created them to be instead of what the limelight had molded them to be. I couldn’t see a pathway to do what He wanted me to do so I second guessed if it was even Him who gave me the vision. Was I crazy? I needed to stick to the script, work my way up the ladder, and be grateful to be in the business period. Continue reading “Follow the Leader”
