...Praise Report – Armenia...
We praise God for the impact of Derek’s book Why Bad Things Happen to God's People. As a result
of the recent war between Armenia and Azerbaijan, some 4,000 mothers lost their sons, and they
have been constantly tormented by the question: "Why has this happened to me?" Our workers in
Armenia organised a conference for these mothers. Sophie, whose son had been killed, had torn
her Bible into pieces as she was tormented by the same question. When they gave her Derek’s book
at the conference, initially she did not want to take it, but eventually, she did. Later, she contacted a
worker, saying she had found answers for many of her questions, regained her fellowship with God,
and received the comfort of the Holy Spirit. There are thousands of mothers like Sophie in Armenia
today, to whom DPM provides Derek's material.
