But soon it is time to mourn together as Ida's father realizes he and his family have been called by God to leave and go to China. Ida and Mollie are soon an ocean apart. Through the years as they write letters back and forth, Ida's heart for the Chinese people grows but her health becomes so poor she is unable to minister to them through nursing as she desires. The need for nurses and good health care is strong but Ida's own health simply won't allow her to meet the need. Finally Mollie's heart is opened through Ida's letters and she realizes she too wants to help others in need.
Notes: Drawn By A China Moon is #34 in the Trailblazers series, a series designed to introduce readers to famous missionaries throughout history. The authors always have young characters who interact with the missionaries and who the story is centered around. These characters often are helped by the missionary, then learn to understand the heart for the lost themselves.
