Compassion, Vision, and Providence
Klaus-Dieter John relates the story of God’s call on his life as a teen ager. He goes on to tell of his amazing journey in answering that call: which includes medical school in Germany, meeting his future wife, Martina, and of their shared vision of becoming missionary doctors. Step by step John describes God at work in his life through answered prayers, intervention in crisis, and what he chooses to call “miracles,” from minute to gigantic.
John and Martina traveled the world during their medical training and career as surgeon and in medical work; ultimately settling in the Peruvian Andes to work among the Quechua Indians where they founded the Diospi Suyana Hospital.
Exciting color photos reveal the magnitude of the undertaking in an area of extreme poverty.
Klaus-Dieter John’s writing is moving, with an action story line. He draws the reader in through compelling real life stories that result in a sense personal involvement evoking compassion and inspiration. I found myself deeply touched and highly motivated to step up to the plate, take action steps to recognize God at work around me and pursue his purpose and plan for me with vision and compassion.
“I Have Seen God” is must reading for anyone with a desire to know more of the reality and power of a Living God. I can highly recommend this book to family and friends knowing that it holds the power to change lives.
