“I was young when a tragedy happened in my family. I lost my parents and my sister in a car accident. I thought that I wouldn’t survive this loss, but God gave me incredible strength to keep on living. I wanted to continue my education. University tuition in my country was very high, so I decided to go to Armenia for medical school. I met many Christians during this time, and began attending worship. My faith in Jesus grew, but something was missing for me. I knew I had to bring the Word back home, so I returned to my country.
All doors were closed for me because of my faith. People started threatening me and I could not get a job. Some of my relatives accepted Jesus, but not openly. One day, I was visited by a government official who I knew, and he told me to leave the country, otherwise I would be imprisoned. I asked the Lord to show me the way, and then knew I should return to Armenia.
I know that I can do a lot from Armenia. I can work with people who travel here in search of truth and freedom. I feel very welcomed by the Church, where I see love and concern. I ask the Lord to help me serve my home nation, and to bring them the light of Truth.” — Persecuted Believer
