Kaifeng Deaf School
She prayed for Holy Fire from Heaven. And God sent Harmony.
In Henan province, in the city of Kaifeng, we discovered a group of young deaf children who were being cared for at an abandoned factory compound, in conditions little better than a cave. Amongst rusted out industrial equipment and broken windows, the children were trying to grow the food they needed to eat. The leader of the Kaifeng Deaf School was a new believer who had read in her Bible that God cares about orphans and the vulnerable. Excited to discover this, she began praying for “Holy Fire from Heaven” to help her. Shortly thereafter, God brought this situation to our attention and confirmed that it was His will that Harmony help the children and staff of KDS. For nearly 10 years Harmony provided financial and material support to the orphans and staff of KDS. In addition to significant monthly support, we relocated the school, funded a brand-new van, new furniture, a clean water filtration system, solar panels, playground equipment and hearing aids for the children. Stories of our work at KDS have been featured in Max Lucado’s books Fearless and You Changed My Life.
