A PowerPoint presentation held for the President and First Lady of Peru

Only six days after the President’s visit to Diospi Suyana Hospital, Drs. Klaus and Martina John together with Dr. Jens Hassfeld were granted permission to meet with the President and First Lady at the Government Palace.  The three medical doctors travelled to Lima the night before, having learned of their approved visit only a day earlier.  According to the report given by Dr. Klaus John, the President congratulated the three missionaries on the success of their work, adding that the many hurdles they had to overcome were  a testimony to the character of the mission doctors..

The President’s office wants to assist Diospi Suyana with the bureaucratic difficulties often faced when running a hospital. Almost simultaneously, the OTAN authority released the computer tomography machine that had been stuck in customs for many weeks.

Last Friday, the Peruvian President took a quick tour of the hospital. That visit opened up the door for this meeting at the Palace and provided the President with an opportunity to learn more about how the hospital was originally started and how it helps the community.  Before and during the meeting, many missionaries and Peruvian employees in Curahuasi were praying for God’s blessing.  Our prayers have been answered.
