Mission: Armenia 2021– Day 3
Our first Sunday in Armenia was spent mostly at the Evangelical Baptist Church of Armenia, where Pastor Joseph preached at both the 11 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. services. In between, we were invited to join the leadership team for lunch in their fellowship hall, where we met again in the afternoon to celebrate the birthday of one of their Sunday School teachers.
During the morning service, the children blessed us with a presentation of songs and Bible verses (there’s a video clip included with the photos) and we enjoyed the music ministry of a group of young people who led the singing time. Pastor Joseph spoke about Zacchaeus and his readiness to follow Christ and be transformed by the Saviour. The afternoon service is geared more toward young people so he used the example of David’s defeat of Goliath to talk about the giants in our own lives and how relying on God can help us to overcome them.
After a short rest upon our return to the hotel, we met with three friends, who are also our ministry partners here, in the hotel lobby. It was great to catch up and to make a few plans for the days ahead.
As always, we appreciate your continued prayers for this ministry.
