I like to think that if I had been alive at this time and met the Missionaries in Moiyan, that perhaps I would have asked to join in their language lessons and learn some German from them, as well as help them with their Hakka!

As a British-born Hakka I would be so interested to meet this Moiyan-born European, Margaret Lutz... She was only a baby in 1938, so I would say there is a good chance she is still alive - perhaps I should try to find her and see if she has any stories about her family's time in Moiyan!
