A Follow Up on the President’s Visit

A follow up on the presidents visit.  It is good for our hospital to have a chance to meet the president.  It really is the work of God.  In one week we have gone from being completely blocked in our ability to get our CT scanner through customs with little help from the government, to now having the unofficial backing of the president.  We are thankful for his help, as we try and serve God and serve the people of Peru.  Who would have thought things could change so quickly.  We have been working long and hard through all the appropriate venues, and then through the help of God (through the president of Peru) it is all better.  It reminds me of Matthew 26:19  “Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”  God help us to remember to turn to you when we need help.  Here is the update from the hospital website.

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.
