SATURDAY: DZIDZERNAGAPERT, GARNI, KEGHART – We started the morning off right with a traditional Armenian breakfast that was prepared for us. After that, we went to one of the classrooms and had a bible lesson led by Badveli Avedis.
We then left the AMAA headquarters and went to Vernisage, which is a very large market that has a wide variety of Armenian items. After that, we went out to lunch, and had kebab, toshka, and many other delicious Armenian foods. Then, we took the bus to Dzidzernagapert, where we saw the Genocide Memorial. It was very emotional for a lot of us, and it made us realize the sacrifices that were made by our forefathers.
From there we rode the bus to Garni Dajar, which was a pagan temple used for offerings. Shortly after we went to Keghart Monastery, where we visited an architectural masterpiece. Afterwards, we went out to dinner at a restaurant, where we all had a chance to talk about our day, and break bread together. We finally ended our day by returning to the AMAA headquarters and taking part in worship with the whole group. It was a great day all in all.
