I notice you’re from Armenia!
I found that a lot of people here in the U.S. don’t don't know much about their own
country, much less anyone else's.
I post prayer updates about different countries. Part of the reason is to raise awareness
about what's going on in the rest of the world.
Recently I’ve started my own private initiative; if I notice someone on DA is from
another country, if I've done their country I let them know. It’s my way of letting them
know that others are thinking about their home.
This update is about your home!
