Glad to Be Back!

Hello again to our Chanitz Blog readers from all around the world,

We're happy to be back, after a two-month Summer break, which was refreshing and a time to evaluate and return with new passion and enthusiasm.

A lot of fruitful events have happened during this refreshing break: Kchag Chapel was wonderfully restored; Emmanuel Church and the Chanitz Youth each had its blessed retreat; the camps of Manougner, Dignatz, Chanitz Badaniatz and Chanitz Yeridasartatz were successfully organized; and the very important mission of the Daily Vacation Bible School (DVBS), that serves the local Armenian communities through leadership building and Bible teaching to kids, was very fruitful.

During the Summer of 2012, we have also witnessed the conflict in Syria where the Arab community in general and the Armenian community in specific encountered losses of precious lives and jobs and destruction of homes and properties.

We ask you to pray with us for peace to prevail in Syria and for the safety of our communities who are living in Aleppo, Damascus, and other cities.
