This biannual newsletter is exclusively devoted to our PAACS graduates serving both as an encouragement to them and praising what God is doing in each of their lives. The newsletter is edited by Thomas C. Robey, MD  — and may be reached by email:

Newsletter: Vol. 1 (April 2015)

Welcome to the first edition of the PAACS Alumni Newsletter celebrating the St Luke’s PAACS Alumni Surgical Society. In this issue, we focus on Dr Aiah Lebbie, a pediatric surgeon in Sierra Leone, and Dr Jacques Ebhele, one of our newest PAACS graduates in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Praise God for their stories and the journeys they have embarked upon.

Newsletter: Vol. 2 (Oct 2015)

In this issue, we focus on Dr. Jack Barasa, one of our first PAACS graduates to be serving as an Assistant Program Director in Kijabe, Kenya and Dr. Jean Claude Bataneni, a PAACS general surgeon serving in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) as a missionary surgeon. We also highlight the surgical equipment needs of PAACS alumni.

Newsletter: Vol. 3 (April 2016)

In this issue, we introduce two more of our graduates, Dr. Heuric Rakotomalala and Dr. Gerald Ewen, who have each taken their PAACS training and returned to their native countries to better the surgical care and share the love of Christ with their fellow countrymen. Join us in praising the Lord for the work both of these men are doing in Cameroon and Madagascar.
