    Congratulations Dr. John on your highly commendable accomplishment. Sorry that your earthly father is not here to celebrate and share in this wonderful moment; however, Our Heavenly Father, who made it all possible has been with you every step of the way.

    It is He who will continue to carry you through the inevitable round-the-clock, long shifts during your residency and beyond.

    I wish you immeasurable success and pray that you will continue to represent and serve β€œthe least of those”, whether at home or abroad.
