This fundraiser is arranged for our brother Gamal Sihotang, who passed away this past Monday night, November 24, 2014.

If you have ever met Gamal, you would not forget his friendliness. Chances are, he probably shook your hand and gave you a kind smile. That is how we want to remember him. He is a sociable, funny, caring, thoughtful brother with a passion of helping others. That is why he dreamt of becoming a hospital chaplain. Although he doesn't have the degree, he is still the chaplain in our eyes and in our family.

As we gather with our own families this Thanksgiving season, we ask that you take a moment to really share your love with your own families and to also remember the Sihotang Family in your prayers. No amount of money can take away the suffering, but it can help celebrate Gamal's legacy.

The Sihotang Family have set up for donations here to go to three missions that Gamal really believed in.

1. KSGN - Gamal loved music and even tried to be a pledger but was only able to make a one time donation.

2. A nearby homeless shelter - Everytime Gamal saw a homeless person in need, he would tell his father, "Ba, stop, slow down and let's give him some money!"

3. An autistic child at church who lost his father - Gamal's heart went out to this child and really tried to love and nurture him as best as he could.

Please take a moment to leave a story of how you remember Gamal at the following website. It will be made into a book for the Sihotang family to keep forever.

*Update 11/27/2014

Thank you to those who have donated and have shared Gamal's story. We believe that this is truly what he would want; to understand God's love by loving others. The family is deeply touched by your contributions. We have raised the goal in hope of touching more lives on Gamal's behalf
