You can invest in a child in Efata Christian School to give him or her language, education, life skills, and a solid opportunity to know the Lord Jesus Christ. Almost all of our students come from poor families. Many live in the Efata Children's Home. It is our desire to train the future generation of deaf men and women to love the Lord Jesus and to desire to serve Him with their lives.

Efata Children's Home provides a home for deaf children who have been abandoned, neglected or abused. We provide a loving and caring Christian environment for children who otherwise would not have much hope or opportunity to live a full and productive life here in Peru. Please take a look at how you can make a difference in the life of the special boys and girls God has entrusted to us.

Precious in His Sight

A child is born,
A heart tender and dear.
A treasure they have,
But alas, she cannot hear.

Eyes so bright,
A mind eager to learn.
But to them “she’s a cancer”,
They wish she’d never been born.

“Why didn’t you abort her” 
The doctor sighs, 
“A curse she’ll be 
For the rest of your lives.”

But her Maker loves her,
Precious is she.
In HIS eyes she has value,
A jewel she’ll be.

He laid on our hearts
A burden so great.
For these little ones 
who “just didn’t rate.”

A burden to share 
God’s great love through our hands.
Sign language we learned, 
so they’d understand.

A home, a church, a school,
And a heart full of love,
Discipline and wisdom
From our Father above.

This child is now growing,
Can read and can write.
A “cancer”? NO!
She’s precious in God’s sight!

- Lisa Kotvas
