“Shine your light as the candle shares the light”

Meet Moo Kho, a refugee from Burma who pours candles in our office in Northampton, MA.

In a recent video, Moo Kho explains why she loves to make candles. “Shine your light as the candle shares the light,” she says. Prosperity Candle celebrates the resilience of women who have overcome extreme hardship, and it’s hard to find a better example than Moo Kho. Moo Kho was born in Thailand, but moved to Burma with her grandmother when she was four, leaving behind her mother and father. It was while in Burma that she witnessed her adopted village burned down and people killed in front of her young eyes. She fled the country and settled in a refugee camp on the Thai-Burma boarder. In 2008, Moo Kho arrived in the US with her husband and young daughter as part of a resettlement program coordinated by Lutheran Family Services.

Today, Moo Kho is an ordained minister in her Burmese church in Springfield, MA, is a mother of three young girls, and pours candles for Prosperity Candle.

“I am happy to make candles because candle share the light. Jesus said we are the light of the world, and the light belongs to God and cannot be covered.”–Moo Kho
