After requesting your prayers for the VBSs that were going to take place in Armenia during the month of August I'm here to share the wonder of what God did through your prayers and the prayers of others.
1 Come, let us sing to the Lord!
Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come to him with thanksgiving.
Let us sing psalms of praise to him.
There were 4 wonderful VBSs during the month. Three were led by the traveling team and local youth in Akhuryan, Maralik and Gyumri and the one held in Yerevan was led by the local leaders. Over 200 children were ministered to during the week long programs.
I had asked for prayer for the youth leaders and wonderful reports were heard from them as they shared during a wrap-up/evaluation session at the end of the month that not only were children being ministered to during the month but they themselves received a blessing.
Now comes the follow-up work. Please continue to pray for Pastor Hamlet and wife Anna and their two daughters Lamara and Esther as they work with the children and youth now coming to Maralik. They have youth meetings on Saturdayafternoons and full days on Sundays with morning services in Maralik and the afternoons in Gyumri as they begin to build the small group there.
Please continue to pray for Pastor Seyran and Anna and their two daughters Nona and Rosa as well as Kids' Club director Gohar as they, too, minister to new children and youth coming in the Akhuryan area.
Please pray for Mary as she works with others and leads the children's work in Yerevan, for Lusine as she takes on the responsibilities for leading the youth and for Trino and Anna as they oversee, encourage and work with the pastors and leaders of Armenia.
We have a women's conference in Armenia coming up Oct. 2-7 with Carolyn Johnson. As God brings this event to mind please pray for Carolyn as she prepares what God is laying on her heart to share and for the women, moms and grandmoms, aunts and relatives of our Kids' Club children, that they will have ears to hear and hearts open to what they hear.
Thank you for your prayers. Looking forward to sharing how God continues to work in the hearts and lives of the children, youth, youth leaders, Kid's Club directors, adult leaders and churches across the CIS.
"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."
