My Visit to Casa de Don Ignacio to see John of God

Two days ago I arrived to Abadiania, Brazil, on a trip to see John of God at the Casa de Don Ignacio. I came as a favor to a friend who has been paralyzed on a wheel chair for the past two years. He asked me to come with him to help with the difficulties of traveling and moving around. I knew it was a big commitment and sacrifice on my part to leave my business in California unattended for three weeks and travel across the continent to a small town where there is little to do and hard to get work done. When he asked me to come I immediately said yes and I never backed off, surely enough there was a reason for me to be here.

Who is John of God?
