“But sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defence to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence” 1 Peter 3:15
The Lord commanded his disciples to go and take the good news to the world.
Who should go: believers with love to the lost, burthened to take the gospel, people who can share Christ, who can pray with others, who are compassionate and filled with the spirit, people with a calling.
It’s a joy to see such people in Armenia, visiting with one purpose and burthen to take the gospel to the poor, it’s such a blessing not only to the listeners but also to the missionaries.
I remember on one of our trips we were to visit a poor mother living in a metal container in Vanazor, as we approached this container I was behind my missionary friend who was visiting for the first time, the sight the poverty was very confronting and I was praying for the Lord to strengthen him as we were going in, I was praying for we did not know what to expect to see inside the container, to my surprise just as we walked in there was a rusted twisted metal cot with a baby sleep in it, she had an old milk bottle in her hand I could not tell if the bottle was full or empty for the transparency has gone and it was dirty grey in colour. He stood there facing the cot motionless, I continued my prayers for I did not know how he was going to react to this touchy situation.
He grabbed the metal cot with his two hands fell on his knees and started to sing with tears “ Jesus love the little children” Yes I too had tears in my eyes, the love of God was reflected followed with
A prayer for the lord to help, keep and guide this helpless little babe. No we do not make missionaries God calls them and he equips them with His spirit.
Yes, Armenia is in need of Godly people to make a difference in the lives of the many.
