Good Tidings of Great Joy
In the coming weeks, people across the world will be celebrating the joyous days of Christmas and the New Year. But this year, once again the world has been engulfed by turmoil, unrest, confusion and pain due to the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and from outbreaks of the devastating war. Uncertainty and suffering continue to hit hard especially in Lebanon, Syria, Armenia and Artsakh.
This year has been unprecedented in so many ways. Unfortunately, we have felt firsthand the heartbreaking loss of vast territories in Artsakh, communities suffering from inflation caused by sanctions in Syria, the quick conversion of the middle class in Lebanon to poverty and despair, and the global virus greatly affecting everyday lives. Our brothers and sisters in our Armenian Homeland continued to experience many trials and tribulations in 2021 and they are afraid and in despair.
It is only in the birth of our Lord and Savior and in following His teachings and emulating His life on earth that we find joy amidst all the chaos around us. Through the AMAA Mission, the Lord helps us to carry His Good News to the ends of the world and to reflect His love all around.
We need your continued help to bring boundless joy to our people every day. Your generous support of our annual Christmas Appeal will help us fulfill our Mission which includes education, camps, medical clinics, sponsorship programs, infant formula distribution and day centers in 24 countries around the world.
May God’s love bring joy to you and your family during this Christmas Season and every day. Our very best wishes and prayers for a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2022.
Քրիստոս ծնաւ եւ յայտնեցաւ. ձեզի, մեզի Մեծ Աւետիս!
Krisdos dzenav yev haydnetzav, tsezee, mezee Medz Avedis!
(Christ is born and is revealed, good tidings to you and to us).
