Alumni Updates (June 6-12)

Greetings from West Papua! Sillimanians from Mindanau and West Papua recently gathered at the GKI (Evangelical Christian Church) Tanah Papua, Indonesia to relive the Silliman spirit. The alumni group was headed by Yafet and Fransina Yoteni and their daughter Anatasia.  Fransina earned her Doctor of Philosophy in Education at Silliman in 2012. The group expresses how proud they are for being Sillimanians.  The Via, Veritas, Vita has continued to guide them in their various mission work.
