CURWENSVILLE – At age 12, Livia (Young) Satterfield received an Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift when an American missionary group visited her Romanian orphanage. Livia’s gift changed her life – forever – from the moment she opened it. Atop of school supplies and hygiene items was a set of hair clips, the one thing she’d always wished the most for. Also, among her gifts was a heart-shaped, break-apart “Best Friends” necklace. She gave half of her necklace to Connie, a woman she’d deeply bonded with from the mission group. Through Livia’s small, yet powerful gesture of love, God spoke to Connie and told her to adopt Livia. Two years later, Livia came to the United States to be with her brand-new family. Livia will share her shoebox story at 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12 at the First Baptist Church, located at 1227 Susquehanna Avenue Ext., Curwensville. Operation Christmas Child is bringing Livia to Curwensville as part of its shoebox recipient speaker tour.
