We have the privilege of welcoming Dr Klaus-Dieter John, author of the book ‘ I have seen God’ re Diospi Suyana missionary hospital in the Andes Peru. The mission hospital opened its doors to the public on October 22, 2007. The name Diospi Suyana is from the Quechua language, meaning “We trust in God.”
As young adults, Dr. Klaus-Dieter John and his wife, Dr. Martina John, already had a desire to use their medical training to ease the suffering in the Third World. His surgical training took him to the universities of Harvard, Yale, Johannesburg and Berlin. She, as a recipient of the university scholarship of the German People, crowned her achievements with both German and American Pediatric board certifications. As believers in Jesus Christ, they both sensed their responsibility to the poorest of the poor.
It was during a trip to Peru in 1991 that the Johns became personally acquainted with the realities of life for the Indian mountain population. They served from 1998-2003 as missionary doctors at the Vozandes del Oriente Hospital in Ecuador. As a first step to easing the misery of the Indians of Peru, they and a few like-minded friends founded the Diospi Suyana charity organization in August 2002.
You won’t want to miss this inspiring story of the many small and big ways God works miracles in daily life. Come and be encouraged as we meet together over good food, meet new friends and spend time being reminded of God’s goodness, grace and generosity in all of life.
