Freedom in Christ

The Interns visit the Musa Dagh Monumen, Zvartnots and Yerablur, and pay their respect to all the heroes who sacrificed their lives to keep our Homeland safe

Today we experienced the power of the Holy Spirit as youth from Armenia, America, Lebanon, and Canada gathered together to worship and have fellowship.

The first place we headed to was the monument in Armavir which is dedicated to the survivors of Musa Dagh. We then headed to Zvartnots where we saw the ruins of the church. We were privileged to hear a few Armenian songs performed by talented locals. Our last stop of the day was Yerablur, where war heroes and martyrs are buried.


In the evening we had a worship service and fellowship with the youth group of the Armenian Evangelical Churches in Yerevan. We discussed the difficulties that teenagers face in this century and in the Armenian Evangelical community. We were reminded that our lives must be centered around God instead of around ourselves. During his talk, Aram Babajanyan shared that many times people think that being a Christian limits our freedom, yet in reality, being a follower of Christ is ultimate freedom.
