#LIGHTtheWORLD: Day 21 in the Pacific - Jesus Forgave Others and So Can You

The focus for Day 21 (21December) of the #LIGHTtheWORLD Christmas initiative is “Jesus Forgave Others and so can you.”

Chelsea from Kellyville, Australia said, “I miss my family especially at this Christmas time.  I haven’t always taken the time to call my Mum when I was thinking of her.”

“She was so surprised when I called her in the middle of the day.”

“It felt good to hear the joy in her voice. It was such a little thing to take the time to call, but to her it meant everything.”
