Klaus-Dieter and Martina John had a vision; to build a top quality health facility for the Indians of the Peruvian Andes. Neglected and marginalised, these people suffer appallingly from the diseases of poverty.
Klaus and Martina were highly qualified in surgery and pediatrics, but they had never taken on such a project. Now they set about raising the millions of dollars needed. They watched in astonishment as God opened hearts and pricked consciences to create not just a health center, but a fully-equipped hospital. If faith can move mountains, it can also shake wallets and transform hearts. This faith has overcome the mire of bureaucracy, deep rooted scepticism, and even blunt rejection. It has cleared blocked roads, blown away arguments, and united Catholics and Protestants in one love for God and their fellow people.

DeannaNEAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Inspiring...May 6, 2016DeannaNEAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"I Have Seen God" shares the inspirational story of medical missionaries Klaus-Dieter and Martina John. This was quite the story of their account of building a hospital in the Peruvian Andes, this was their mission - to get care for the poverty stricken families of that area. This showed many of the miracles that God continues to perform today for those who answer His call. This inspiring book tells me there are still missionaries and many of God's people still doing His work. I was gifted a copy from The Book Club Network for review.

JeaniePhoenix, AZAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Hospital Built by FaithDecember 30, 2015JeaniePhoenix, AZAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is one of the most amazing testimonies of the power of God that Ive read! If, like me, and like Dr. Klaus John, you have ever wondered if God really existed, if He answered prayer, this little book can completely change your faith.
Klaus John, a first generation German native, met the love of his life, Martina Schenk, in high school. They discovered quickly their common goal: they wanted to become doctors and practice in a third-world country. The brief introduction that cemented their passion for bringing quality medical care to developing countries was when doing an internship in Ghana, West Africa. If a patient had no money, that patient would not be treated. They were woefully short of medical equipment to make proper diagnoses, often relying on visual and touch only. They learned it was rare to find practitioners treating with Christian love, yet in 1983 found a mentor in a doctor from Wales who left a promising career to put his faith into action in Ghana. This doctor showed how to treat patients, and everyone else, with the love of Jesus.
Many prayers led Klaus to various colleges in the US as a student, where he decided to specialize as a surgeon. In 1987, he and Martina married. Both were blessed to study at Yale for their residencies in the early 1990s. These lessons in waiting on the Lord were Gods school for what would one day be the adventure of their lives. When almost done at Yale, they went to Peru on a backpacking tour. They found the location they believed to be their future in a small town called Cusco, the now-impoverished former capital of the Incan civilization where lived the direct descendants of the Incans.
They spent time in the Republic of South Africa, where Klaus received the maximum experience in almost every kind of surgery. In Tinas pediatric department, nearly 30% of their patients had AIDS. Even though state of the art equipment filled the walls in a developing country, it was a place of terrible prejudice, both tribal and racial. Later, they raised their own support to be medical missionaries in Ecuador. On September 27, 2000 their vision was birthed after Klaus had read in Psalm 32, God says: I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you (pg. 72). They believed, with the Lords direction, they could build the Diospi Suyana Hospital which would be built on faith in God, where patients would be treated with the love, dignity, and care that Christians are to live every day. It would be built on prayer and trusting the Lord.
This book reads like a novel, except it is true. It has everything a reader could want drama, mystery, risk, and of a faith that refused disappointment. It is about living one day at a time, having needs met one prayer at a time. Throughout is the constant concern of whether their project would begin, much less continue. It is ultimately the story of Gods power unleashed when people trust Him. The prose invites one to stay up late into the night to keep reading, just one more chapter, one more challenge, one more miracle! It is extremely well-written, better than the plots of many works of fiction, showing how truth can be more amazing than fiction when God is in control. I highly recommend I Have Seen God by those who want to see Gods love and grace, who need to see that not only is He still concerned for our every need, but there are men and women of God who live with the kind of radical faith it takes to follow the Lord to build a mission hospital in the heart of South America.
With a grateful heart, I received a copy of this book through the For Readers Only group at The Book Club Network, in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own, and no monetary compensation was received for this review.

Reviewer: Janice S. Garey
***** 5 Stars
If you have ever wondered how God works, this book reveals Him making the most of human and physical resources, and acting in miraculous ways which appear impossible except for realizing He has done the thing that could not be done.
If you have ever wondered about how God calls His children to act on a notion, a far-fetched dream He gave that seemed so questionable at the time received, this book will reveal how that works.
If you have ever wondered whether or not God cares about the poor in this world and if He will make any difference in their lives, this book will give you answers to that long pondered question.
If you have ever wondered how people who are highly skilled, well educated, and with prospects of an affluent life can go to a poverty stricken area to live far below the quality of life to which they were accustomed in order to serve the needy in the name of Christ, this book will show you how that happens.
If you have ever wondered if corporations have a heart, and what their motivations are for charitable acts, this book will give you a look at inner workings that mobilize substantial help through donations in kind and financial commitments.
Not wanting this review to get too long, I will just say that I have only touched upon a few aspects of this inspiring book. I really enjoyed the photo pages included which helped me to see personalities through their captured expressions. The love for God and the people He made flows through the whole book. Receive inspiration to stick with God through thick and thin. See what spectacular impact can be made when God works through believers who will not give up even at the bleakest of moments.
I thank bookfun.org, the author, and the publisher for giving me this book in exchange for reading it and posting an honest review. This book will inspire all readers in many ways. Rise up to action based on examples set by dedicated Christians, by corporate sponsors doing good in community settings, by government cutting through red tape and corruption, by God turning what seems to be a hardship into an opportunity to receive beyond wildest dreams,and more. Not to be missed!
Kathy Schemmel4 Stars Out Of 5Inspiring readAugust 23, 2015Kathy SchemmelQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I Have Seen God by Klaus-Dieter John is a very inspiring read. I was skeptical when others said it brought tears to their eyes but I found I had them too at the end of the book. Throughout the entire book, we see the hand of God at work helping the Johns to accomplish their goal of building their hospital. This is evidenced by quotes like from page 71, I can only confirm that the more you trust God and realize your dependence on Him, the more help you will see from above.
On page 145, Dr. John explains I had lost my projector at Customs. That had been irritating, BUT, as a result, I now had a new satellite dish for the hospital a resource that would ultimately save us hundreds of thousands of dollars. After elaborating on the entire chain of events, he acknowledges that it could only be a miracle from God that caused things to happen as they had not coincidence.
The Johns knew from when they first met that they wanted to help people in the mission field. They researched and found the location that was calling to them and realized their dreams with Gods help and so can we.
