#LIGHTtheWORLD: Day 20 in the Pacific

The focus of the “Light the World” Christmas initiative on 20 December was “Jesus saw potential in others and so can you.”


Everyone can use help from someone with experience to help build their confidence.

“I was apprehensive today when tasked with spending my employer’s money to purchase a camera for the office,” said Jeff in Takapuna, New Zealand, who confesses he knows little about cameras beyond the one on his smart phone.

Fortunately he was rescued by a close friend who is an experienced photographer.


“Him sharing his expertise lightened my burden today and gave me the confidence I needed. It may seem like a simple thing, but it was really appreciated."
