Hello, and welcome to my personal blog! My name is Haig Kherlopian, and I am the pastor of the Armenian Evangelical Church in New York City. This blog is meant to share the story of an ancient civilization that would become the first nation to accept Christianity as its official religion. Though our history is marked with persecution because of its faith, it is one that has persevered and continues today. My hope is that what is written will be a source of encouragement to you.
