#LIGHTtheWORLD: Day 10 in the Pacific

The focus for the "Light the World" Christmas initiative on Saturday 10 December was "Jesus helped people walk and so can you."

A group of young Latter-day Saints from Auckland went into the city, took off the shoes they were wearing, and left them next to a sign inviting individuals in need to take a pair, if they wished.


One Australian family gathered shoes from their cupboards—that were still in good condition but no longer being used—and then donated them to a local charity.


Each day from 1 December to Christmas Day a new video is posted that invites people to serve others in Christ-like ways. 

Watch the Day 10 video, titled, "Jesus helped people walk and so can you," and the main #LIGHTtheWORLD Christmas video:
