Throughout millenia, Armenia has been born and reborn, struck down only to rise again from ashes. This historic survival could be explained by divine providence and a unique national identity. This presentation seeks to awaken hearts and empower them to take their rightful place, by first exploring Armenia’s God given calling through many key elements from mythology, history, linguistics, genetics, culture and etc.
