A look at our team’s activities on Friday… We continued with our visitations and had the opportunity to share the gospel with a young person who was moved to receive Christ as Saviour and Lord. Praise God!
We also had the unexpected opportunity to witness an historical moment in Armenia, as the new prime minister addressed the nation 100 days after his quiet revolution brought him to this position of influence. Our team was supposed to have our own gathering in one of the business centres in the same area but we rescheduled it for tonight (Saturday night – the live video we broadcast earlier). What amazed us was how tens of thousands of Armenians (including about a thousand who travelled several hours from Karabakh) filled Republic Square peacefully and without any aggression. What a great lesson to the rest of us!
On Thursday, our team did a few visitations. A highlight of our day was learning that a 17-year-old girl we’ve known for a few years had accepted Christ as her saviour just 15 days earlier. Thanks for your continued prayers!
Օn Wednesday, our team visited several households, giving us the chance to get to know them and to hear their stories, some of which were heartbreaking. In the evening, we drove to a church in Charentsavan where Pastor Joseph shared from God’s Word and we enjoyed fellowship with the believers there. Thank you for your continued prayers for our mission trip and for following along as we share these videos.
Yesterday we visited with this incredibly lovely family. My grandfather met them last year but it was my first time meeting Christina and her three children, Annie, Gor and Haik. Gor has been blind since he was born due to complications during childbirth, but as you’ll see it doesn’t stop him from doing anything. -Alexis
On Monday, we met with our friend Emmy. Click on the video below to see us catching up with her. Later in the day, we also visited family, where Pastor Joseph prayed a blessing over a newborn, and moved some more of our books and tracts as we continue to organize storage of our literature.
Sunday morning, we drove over two hours to a village called Horom, where we visited a church we have supported for the past five years. After the church gathering, we took a short walk over to a neighbours home to have a baptism.
Today we took the time to gather a trunk load of books and tracts and took them to several different locations, that way they may be more easily accessible to distribute to the locals.
We thought our first day in Yerevan would be a quiet one, but God had other plans and gave my grandfather the energy to visit several families and be able to share the gospel. – Alexis
