This year marks the 25th anniversary of AGAPE, our ministry which we share with the Western North Carolina Conference in Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh. Nara Melkonyan, who is the face of the work of AGAPE in that area, will be visiting with us from April 2 to April 15, 2018. She has wonderful stories to share with us about her ministry with the poor in an area of the world which is economically disadvantaged. Our Conference has been a steady supporter of the work of AGAPE which includes the establishment of a hospital, an orphanage, an after-school program, and a Center which houses work teams. In just this year alone, our Conference is sending 5300 Christmas boxes to children in dozens of villages located in the mountains of Nagorno-Karabakh.
Because of the shorter period of time for her itineration this year, we expect that her schedule will fill up quickly. To request a time for her to visit your Church (or preferably even groups of Churches), call Rev. Bill Haddock at 910.262.3831 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
