The last weekend of January 2019 saw the graduation of the inaugural class of the UPeU (Universidad Peruana Union) Medical School. There was celebration and rejoicing as 29 graduates received their MD qualifications. Parents, teachers, administrators, and students joined in with great enthusiasm. The commencement convocation included the messages from the University President, Gluder Quispe, and the General Conference Health Ministries Director, Peter Landless. During the weekend activities, the graduates “gowned” their parents in a touching and heart-warming ceremony that honored the families of this inaugural class. The academic scores of the graduates ranked amongst the best in the nation. We praise God for yet another milestone in extending the healing ministry of Jesus. We pray for each of the graduates as they will begin their healing ministry as physicians in Peru and around the world.
