The interns visit AMAA’s Nicol Touman Center in Yerevan before heading to Camp Sheen Shoghig in Hankavan.
God continues to reveal himself each and every day we spend here in Armenia. Today was filled with eye-opening moments. The morning began with a message where we learned a great deal about what exactly the AMAA does for the community. The AMAA representative of Armenia, Harout Nercessian, walked us through the various social and spiritual programs they provide to those in need. They focus on providing holistic care to the people in these communities. The AMAA values education and provides life skills for the Armenian people. This approach allows them to better themselves and their families. It gives them a sense of purpose, hope, and integrity in their lives.
God spoke to each of us today through Samuel Nalbandian’s powerful testimony of how God turned him from a gang leader to a church leader.
Each department head shared their specific role in certain projects. This showed us how much work God is doing through them in Armenia and how every little piece fits together.
After this informative session, we toured the Nicole Touman Center, which is the previous headquarters of the AMAA. Here we saw one example of the many forms of care they provide.
In the late afternoon, we drove to camp Hankavan where we were greeted by dozens of cheerful children. During the night session, we were overjoyed to see the excitement on the campers’ faces while worshiping and celebrating the beginning of an exciting week.
We see an overflow of blessings because God is the sturdy foundation of the AMAA. We are humbled to play a small part in serving with them.
