Autumn Moon Festival

It's Autumn Moon Festival in Hong Kong
and throughout China!
Chinese students taught the international students
the fine art of making mooncakes

Each mooncake must contain a moon of course!

Many hands at work.

Definitely needs more rice flour!

This takes special technique, boys!
The finished product - perfection!
The more traditional mooncakes...
with salted egg in the center
Just before the official holiday began,
we celebrated a Autumn Moon Festival Eucharist
at LTS, complete with Chinese lanterns:
Jesus says, "Let your light shine"!
And this year, we are celebrating with
new friends, Australian missionaries
serving in Thailand, who have
one of the cutest 4 year olds
in the world.
"I can see the moon better from up here!"
Here's wishing all of you a blessed, fun, moonlight-filled Autumn Festival!

When I look at your heavens,
    the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
    which you have set in place,

what are human beings that you are mindful of them,
    the children of the earth, that you care for them?
-- Psalm 8
