In 2002 the Wyse's felt the Lord calling them to take their knowledge and move to China to help handicapped orphans focusing on those with OI. They sold everything they owned, packed up, and departed, by faith, to live in China. After 1 year of internship, they were led to begin a home providing foster care for children with Brittle Bones and orthopedic problems. As the Founders and Directors of the Agape Family Life House located in Langfang China, together they began with 29 children, many suffering for Brittle Bones, but the children suffer from many kinds of physical needs, also. The children ranged in age from 1 1/2 to 26 yrs of age.
Keith and Cheryl continued to direct the operation of AFLH together until January of 2017, when Keith passed on unexpectedly. During that time, they pioneered the operation of the Bread of Life Bakery, where the older children learn life skills. The bakery continues today and helps to support AFLH’s existence.
Now, Cheryl continues as the Managing Director of AFLH as the work continues to care for the special children entrusted into the care of AFLH. Through the years, the focus of AFLH has been to help children afflicted with OI. In 2009, Keith and Dr. Wu Guo Hua, Director of the Langfang Orthopedic Hospital, Co-Founded the OI Association of China. That organization will ultimately provide a channel of Outreach to the many children who are afflicted with OI and the dream which God placed in the hearts of Keith and Cheryl continues in the years ahead.
