We Must Demonstrate Our Love for and Admiration of Women All Throughout the Year

Harout Nercessiann, AMAA Armenia Representative

Reflections on the Occasion of International Women’s Day

Today is March 8. It is the international Women’s Day. Women all over the world, including Armenia, are honored with nice words of praise and flowers. Husband, brothers, sons, and daughters look for ways of honoring their mothers, sisters, and wives. In Armenia, as in many other countries, March 8 is a holiday. So we all enjoy this special holiday.

The day after a gentle rain, sunshine in the crisp late afternoon lit the scene perfectly as guests arrived for Lark Musical Society’s celebration concert, “Faith and Love” at Pasadena’s Ambassador Auditorium, Sunday, March 4, 2018. The program featured Anton Bruckner’s tripartite Te Deum, a popular thanksgiving hymn that honors God’s work among his believers, and Beethoven’s 9th Symphony with the Chorus “Ode to Joy,” a masterpiece expressing the human longing for brotherhood and equality. It was a joyful and inspiring celebration of the Armenian Missionary Association of America’s (AMAA) 100-year legacy of mission and service.

The Child Education Program helps subsidize the education of children in the Middle East. Many of these families struggle to make ends meet and cannot afford to pay the full tuition for their child’s education. By sponsoring a student you can help make their education possible.

The Child Sponsorship Program in Armenia and Artsakh helps meet the necessities of life and gives hope to Armenia and Artsakh’s adorable children by providing basic needs.
