‘Full Moon children home’ is a place full of love and miracles. I also saw God’s great deeds and example here. I have known ‘Full Moon children home’ and Grandpa Wu’s family in the story for nearly ten years. Every time I visit them in Myanmar or meet them in Hong Kong, I am touched by their family’s service. Their love for children has accomplished many miracles. These miracles are not miracles that they seek for themselves under the influence of prosperity theology and consumerism, but miracles that are accomplished by giving, living a slave life, and walking with God. This picture book is using simple brushstrokes to see through the story of God’s accomplishment through the humble service of people in the land of Burma. My life has been ignited by them, and I recommend that you read it carefully.
