Watch: David Archuleta Visits an Orphanage to #LightTheWorld This Christmas

Thanks to Mormon LifeHacker for making us aware of this story.

On December 2, David Archuleta took time during his tour in Peru to visit the Perez Aranibar orphanage in Lima.

About the experience, Archuleta posted on Instagram:

"We ended our trip in Peru today going with Mormon Helping Hands to an orphanage in Peru. Flor Chonsen (in the 3rd photo) took us around to see the orphanage where she has worked the last 27 years, as she and her husband couldn't have kids of their own. It is part of the #lighttheworld campaign and more videos will come out on Mormon.org later this month on the calendar with stories and ways to serve. After the orphanage visit I went to the Mormon temple in Lima, a place where I can always find refuge and can feel closer to Christ, following a Christmas devotional for South American youth. Today reminded me of the real purpose behind Christmas and I want to stay in that purpose this season. I invite y'all to join me in lighting the world this December, and check out the Light the World calendar on Mormon.org to find ways how to serve in the way that you can!"
