Missionary ministry in Armenia, October-December 2012

01Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer, saying, “Thus far the Lord has helped us.” (1 Samuel 7:12)

 

Greetings to you, my dear friends!

02This scripture passage describes most accurately our situation in this period.

On the 24th December, our church celebrated ten years of our missionary ministry, as well as, ten years of our central church "Ararat" in Yerevan. Only the Lord has helped us to reach this point, the level of ministry, and the condition. Therefore, all the glory, honor and praise be to Him, too!

03We want to thank all those, who over the years, have been with us. Your prayers, financial support, comforting and encouragement sustained us.

Bible College "Ararat"

By the grace of our Lord, the first semester of the second set of the Bible College "Ararat" took place in December. In 2012, our college students studied five subjects: "Ecclesiology", "Introduction to the New Testament," "Apologetics", "Introduction to the Old Testament", and "Missiology."

Summer in Armenia

Greetings to you our dear friends!

01First of all, I want to thank all who pray and support our ministry.

Your prayers and support are pleasing to our Lord and we are all part of one great cause of the Lord!

Summer was literally the hottest season of the year. It started with a long journey. Arthur, Artak, Suren, and Alexander Degtyarev (who taugh apologetics in our Bible College) drove from Armenia through Novorossiysk to Ukraine.

02Obviously, the trip was hard (we traveled for 20 days and passed over 6000km), but full of new meetings in churches. Most importantly, we experienced grace, love, and miracles of our Lord during this trip

We can say that this was a trip across the Caucasus. It was through uneasy and mostly uncontrolled territory. We were stopped at checkpoints and were demanded "bribes" for nothing. However, surprisingly, we did not pay and were let go. This is a miracle and God’s grace.

During the trip, we visited a number of our partner churches in Russia and Ukraine. Churches were treating us well, with warm atmospheres. It was encouraging and unifying.

Artur and Artak were on a study session at the Ukrainian Bible Seminary. They study when finances allow them to arrive at the seminary. Studies take place on the camp territory near Kiev. Only seminary students have the right to live there. We did not know where to settle Suren. We did not have a sufficient amount for room and board. He could stay in Kiev, in pastor Igor Plyva’s place, but it would be problematic and inconvenient. Moreover, Suren does not even speak Russian. But the Lord has wonderfully blessed us even here. It turned out that the director of camp base is ethnic Armenian. We prayed and decided to go to talk to him and explain the situation. We wanted to ask for Suren to stay with us for at least half the price (but, to be honest, we did not even have money for half the price). We have found out that the director is not very social person and does not live in Armenia anymore. Surprisingly, he was very friendly and allowed Suren to stay with us for free. It is only the grace of God, and we praise Him for it.
