On the executive floor
Since 2003, Dr. John has told the story of Diospi Suyana to eight Peruvian health ministers. Yesterday, the head of the Ministry of Health, Dr. Anibal Velasquez Valdivia and his deputy Dr. Percy Luis Leon Minaya, heard how and why Diospi Suyana came to be in the small Andean town of Curahuasi. For an hour the three sat comfortably together in the large conference room.
After the presentation, the minister said, “Now I can understand why the Peruvian President was so moved after visiting Diospi Suyana last year!”
Dr. John asked for assistance in awarding the licenses for the physicians. He also explained the plans for the media center to address issues of health, culture, and faith over the radio.
Before Dr. Velasquez said goodbye, the missionary doctor asked the minister, “Do you believe in God?”
The minister’s reply was quick, “Absolutely. And after this talk, a lot more than before!”
