In The Blue Enamel Cup, Rosalie Hall Hunt, the third-culture missionary kid readers first got to know in 6 Yellow Balloons: An MK’s China Story, is all grown up and embarking with her husband and their two little MKs for mission service in Asia. Along for the journey is Rosalie’s birth gift, a small blue enamel cup that will travel with her  to eight countries over the next thirty years.

Theirs will be an adventure marked by danger, joy, anxiety, uncertainty, excitement, failure and, occasionally, success. From earthquakes to typhoons, robbers and floods, there is no time to be bored. The Blue Enamel Cup: An MK’s China Legacy traces the Hunt family’s missionary life, culminating in some unexpected and astonishing reunions with childhood friends in China.

Come along on the odyssey and witness the hand of God opening doors and transforming lives.
