JMP Jottings December 2020 | Emergency Relief Needed for Displaced Families in Armenia

Early morning on September 27th, 2020, Azerbaijan launched missile attacks along the entire line of contact of the Republic of Artsakh, targeting both military and innocent civilians. Consequently, the Defense Army of the Republic of Artsakh was forced into war to protect its people and homeland. During the 45 days of war, Azerbaijan, backed by Turkey, conducted horrible war crimes by using mercenary terrorists, heavy artillery, banned cluster bombs and chemical weapons. This resulted in the killing and wounding of dozens of civilians, including the elderly and children.
On November 10th, Armenia was forced to sign a painful ceasefire agreement with Azerbaijan and Russia, giving up a big part of its lands to stop the massacre of its people. While Armenia enters into further stages of negotiations, it hopes the OSCE Minsk Group and the other world powers will help Armenia protect its rights by standing by truth and justice.

Jinishian Jottings Winter 2016

God is at work among Armenian communities, bringing dignity and hope out of poverty and despair. You are invited to be part of this mission. The Jinishian Memorial Program addresses the needs of the whole person—social, economic and spiritual-with projects ranging from emergency aid to long-term development. Drawing on a half-century of experience, we also adapt and innovate, adjusting priorities according to particular conditions in Armenia, Lebanon and Syria, as well as Istanbul, Jerusalem, Nagorno-Karabakh and Georgia. This year, we celebrate 50 years of 100 percent local mission. As a program supported by an endowment fund of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and advised by Apostolic, Catholic and Evangelical local board members, we serve struggling Armenian communities through transformational faith-based projects. Jinishian is a recognized leader in creative, sustainable change.
