Call2All in Armenia was an unique event. Unlike other Call2All congresses that had a lot of international participation, the participants here were all Armenian.
This has proven very significant because historically the Armenian Church is one of the oldest in the world and has survived many times of persecution.
Situated in the Caucasus region, they are a strategic gateway to the many Muslim nations of the Middle East and Central Asia.
The Armenian diaspora is settled across all of these Muslim lands and are positioned to be a powerful force for the Great Commission. This served as a dynamic backdrop, as we began the first day of gathering key leaders from the nation. There was an incredible cross-section of the body of Christ represented and a tangible eagerness to engage from the opening moments.
One highlight from this first day was prayer walking the 4k map. This was a novel experience for the participants. Many were moved as they were exhorted to pray specific prayers over an omega zone where they have not yet been in person.
One young lady said afterwards, "This has changed my life. I have heard many sermons and gone to many conferences, but God changed the direction of my life as I prayed on the map."
In the evening plenary, David Hamilton, one of the Executive members of Call2All, addressed the question, "Is the Great Commission doable in our generation?"
As he asked questions of the crowd, they responded with fervent zeal. They were wrestling with the question and came to the conclusion with intense affirmation, shouting, "Yes, we can. We can do it in our generation."
