Sometimes we think reaching out and loving others is really complicated or costs a lot, but the reality is sometimes the simplest act of kindness can change someone's life. An Operation Christmas shoe box filled with simple toys, hygiene items and hair clips changed Livia's life fourteen years ago when she was living in an orphanage in Romania. You can read more about Livia's story HERE.
This weekend Livia shared her story at the K-LOVE Operation Christmas Child shoebox packing party in Pittsburgh, where K-LOVE listeners packed 3,500 shoeboxes to send to kids just like Livia. Since 1993, over 100 million kids, like Livia, have been reminded that they are loved not only by perfect strangers, like you and me, but by Jesus. This is national collection week for Operation Christmas Child, it is an easy, inexpensive way to show the love and compassion of Jesus to kids all over the World.
