I Have Seen God by Klaus-Dieter John - Book Review
About The Book:
I Have Seen God: The Miraculous Story of the Diospi Suyana Hospital in Peru (Monarch Books, October 2014)
The miraculous founding of a top class hospital for some of the world’s poorest people
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.

"I Have Seen God" is a fascinating story of how Klaus-Dieter John and his family committed themselves to bring medical help and hope to those who the world had forgotten, and how their strong faith in believing that God would provide for their every need is inspirational to all who read this emotionally stirring story.
From the first chapter, the reader is included in the adventure that Klaus and his wife Martina embarked on - from their days as medical students to their quest to find and provide the best medical care they could for the indigent people of Peru. This book is well done as far as being very readable, and the photographs included help to document the journey of the John family and their incredible mission.
