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 paediatrics, 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 centre, 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.
