Armenia | Ashot Ghambaryan, minister of Armavir

Recently, in connection with the elections to the Armenian parliament, the election campaign of the “Bargavach Hayastan” party was planned to take place in the city of Armavir. Upon learning of this, the local Seventh-day Adventist Church began preparatory work. The main goal was to hold rallies to share the good news of Jesus Christ with people in attendance.

At 6pm on event day, with God's help, church volunteers began to distribute the book, Steps to Christ, to the audience. As they passed books out, several participants of the rally also voluntarily joined them, and they also began to hand out books to the people.

Providentially, after all of the participants had received their books, Gagik Tsarukyan, the president of the party, finished his speech with a seeming benediction. “We are a Christian country, a believing people; we are the first in the whole world and God will never leave us. May the blessing of Jesus Christ be upon us so that we can fully realize our desires and goals. "

As Gagik Tsarukyan finished his speech and began his departure, a local evangelist, having received permission, approached Gagik Tsarukyan and personally handed him the book "The Great Controversy."
