AMAA Spreads True Christmas Joy in
Armenia and Karabagh
During the 2015-2016 Christmas season, in more than 40 towns and cities in Armenia and Karabagh, Christmas and New Year’s Programs were organized in the final days of December until the end of winter vacation for children, teens and their parents. Through these programs they shared God’s love and “Christmas Joy” was brought to thousands of children and their families. The real message of Christmas was proclaimed through music, recitations, games and drama with the children presenting Christ’s birth and conveying the meaning and importance of His birth, and by telling about the plan of God’s salvation. Each program included a special visit from Santa distributing “Christmas Joy” boxes of school supplies, socks, candy, toys, Christmas story activity booklets, puzzles, coloring books etc.
On behalf of the AMAA and of thousands of participating children, we thank those who prayed for and contributed toward these Christmas programs. We are also very appreciative of all the volunteers who joyfully participated in the process of assembling the “Christmas Joy” boxes. We would especially like to recognize and thank Nelson Randolph and Al Jibilian, who coordinated the purchasing and shipping of the boxes and their contents, from the U.S. to Armenia. Al Jibilian even traveled to Armenia with volunteers from the U.S. to assist with the packing and assembling of the “Christmas Joy” boxes. Since their involvement over the last few years the Christmas Joy Program has strengthened and continues to grow. Most importantly, we praise God for enabling us all to reach out to these children with the love of Jesus Christ.
