Tomorrow Juli and I are leaving for Armenia with World Vision USA alongside a group of bloggers from around the country. Talks about this trip began sometime last year, and we’re all very excited to embark on this journey together.
A group of bloggers from around the country will gather together for the first time, make their way to Yerevan, the capital of Armenia and see first hand the incredible work being done by World Vision USA.
None of us have ever met prior to this trip, but our passion to help the efforts of this organization are what will unite us together. World Vision is currently active in 13 different communities in Armenia, with sponsors from the United States helping support around 7,800 children.
We will be spending most of our time in the northern region of Armenia near Gyumri, where in 1988 a devastating earthquake left the surrounding area in shambles.
I’m going because I have never been one to turn down and adventure, let alone an adventure that is purposed to help those in need. Frankly, I have no clue what I’m getting myself into, but all I can say is that I have a feeling God is going to do a mighty work during this incredible excursion.
Matthew 28:19 says, “Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.”
This is an opportunity to go far beyond the parameters of our comfort zones, step into new territory, and pursue the undeniable calling to reach all nations for the sake of God’s love; The Gospel.
