Church's Pacific Area Headquarters Staff Prepare to #LightTheWorld

Employees and volunteers based at the Pacific Area Administration Offices of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Takapuna, Auckland are looking forward to Christmas.


Many of them will take part in the Church’s #LightTheWorld Christmas initiative, which involves doing small acts of kindness each day from 1 December to Christmas day.

Staff and missionaries in the Takapuna office support the Church's humanitarian, self-reliance, building and other efforts throughout the South Pacific and Australia.
