Book Review - I Have Seen God


Klaus-Dieter and Martina John---both brilliant, talented, and highly qualified doctors---turned their backs on lucrative careers to follow their dream to open a first-rate medical facility for the Indians of the Peruvian Andes, some of the world's poorest people. The Peruvian Andes natives suffer appallingly from the diseases of poverty and, although they make up approximately 40 percent of Peru's population, are ignored by the authorities.

Having studied at the universities of Harvard, Yale, and Johannesburg during his training as a surgeon, Dr. Klaus-Dieter John together with his wife, Dr. Martina John, a pediatrician, developed a concept for a modern hospital in the Peruvian Highlands.

Turning down other offers, including a professorship, they set themselves the task of raising the millions of dollars needed. God opened the hearts and consciences of individuals and companies to create not just a health center, but a fully equipped hospital. Their story and vision has captured attention around the world and today they have the backing of 180 corporations and 50,000 private supporters.

The hospital's name, Diospi Suyana, means "we trust in God" in Quechua, the native language of the people it serves. It is a testament to their experience that with God the impossible can happen. The incredible conviction and profound faith of the Johns will refresh your heart and stir your spirit.

This book is the story of Dr. Klaus and Martina John who have devoted themselves to taking care of those who are sick in third-world countries. While many talk about doing this from a young age, they have actually done it! Their story reads like a movie in all that they have done and accomplished!

They are both natives of Germany and met while in high school. They focused on their goals and Dr. Klaus became a surgeon and Martina a pediatrician. They have been to Africa and South America and finally settled in South America where they dreamed of a hospital for the Peruvian peoples.

book really shows you how with faith in God, great things can be accomplished. The book is full of miracles where God truly showed his favor and protection over this hospital project and the John's themselves.

This is a very inspiring book and I really enjoyed it! It reads a little like an itinerary at times, but if you can get past that, you will truly enjoy the message. I came away from this book just amazed at what God can do through people who are willing. I highly recommend this book and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
