When you take into account the many places where people were born or grew up and where their children were born and where they live together now, I’m guessing God is the only one who knows how many tribes, tongues, and peoples are represented here at Global Orphan Summit VII.
So it seems appropriate to find Hyatt Moore in a prominent place surrounded by his paintings of people from many tribes and nations.
Although his body of work is broad, I’m especially drawn to his paintings of people. They seem to flow from his heart after almost 30 years with Wycliffe Bible Translators, including 5 years as president.
At home I take pleasure in leafing through In the Image of God: Faces and Souls that Reflect Their Creator, a stunning collection of paintings of peoples of the world, compiled by Mr. Moore. Many of his own paintings are included. And I have to say, the price is amazingly accessible compared to what I’d expect for a full-color coffee-table-sized art book.
This is a book where many of our children will find “their” faces, the beloved faces God created in his image.
