The church of Christ Plants International team will be heading to the Capital city of Armenia in June of 2021.
Yerevan, the capital of Armenia is where we will be setting our aims at this year as the city boasts approximately 1.5 million residents. Bill Stewart, met some brethren while we were in Ukraine in 2019 that were from Yerevan. The couple spoke of the people from Armenia and touted that this would be a great place to plant the Lords church.
Covid-19 has really slowed us down in sowing the seeds of the gospel in the world over the past year. In March 2020, we were in Brazil on a church plant and had to leave after only a short time due to flights in and out of the country being cancelled. This, of course, left us feeling that we were not being utilized. The fire has now been lite again as we have received word that Armenia has lifted their travel restrictions. In June of this year we will travel to this country and meet with students wishing to study English, using the Bible as our text. Of course, the end goal would be to teach them the gospel and with open hearts and minds, be responsive to the message.
Please pray for this upcoming effort that many souls may be added to the kingdom of God.
The reception in Moldova was well attended by 32 students. Tom Langley, thanked the students for their attendance at the reception and offered them the opportunity to have one-to-one studies with American Bible Teachers.
After a short introduction by each of us we invited the students to sign up for studies to be conducted over the next week and a half. The response was much like Mongolia and we have many study appointments set.
To God Be The Glory
Arrived at Epply Airfield in Omaha, Nebraska this morning at 3:40 to begin the journey to Moldova. From here I will meet up with Bill and Luis in Los Angelos and continue to Vienna until we reach Chisinau, Moldova tomorrow.
We are extremely excited for what the Lord has in store for us on this trip and are thrilled to be able to be apart of reaching souls with the Gospel of Christ.
The reception to meet the students will be on Saturday evening and we will set up individual studies for the remainder of our time there.
To keep up on the details of this effort a separate Facebook page has been set up: Mission Moldova. You can also find updates on my webpage at www.adamdollen.org.
Thank you for your prayers and support.
All To The Glory Of God!
The past two weeks have been a whirlwind, coupled with Bible studies with the Mongolian brethren and sharing the Gospel message with those who have never previously heard. The results have been tremendous as the Lord has blessed us with four new sisters in Christ. In addition to the growth of the Lord’s church numerically, there has been significant growth spiritually for the Mongolian brethren.
There has been a lot of emphasis on this trip placed on all aspects of worship, spiritual gifts, baptism, women’s role, leadership, and evangelism. Continue to pray as we still have more studies scheduled this week.
To God be the Glory!
On Tuesday evening 7:00 P.M. (Mongolian Time), Yanjin was baptized for the forgiveness of sins.
Yanjin, is Eric’s mother (he was baptized last year) and she requested to come and study with us.
To God be the Glory!
We have a new sister in Christ! Sara, was baptized into Christ for the forgiveness of sins this afternoon at 1:30 P.M. (Mongolian Time).
Sara is the older sister of ounaa, who obeyed the Gospel on our first trip to Mongolia. Sara visited worship on Sunday and studied with Pam.
To God Be the Glory!
This Friday evening at 7:30 P.M. (Mongolia Time) Emma was baptized into Christ for the forgiveness of her sins.
Emma was a member of the youth group in the church where Eric was a former minister. She has been attending worship with the church in Mongolia for two months. After studying the Word of God the past few days she realized that she was not baptized Scripturally and needed to be immersed for the forgiveness of sins.
To the Glory of God!
On Thursday evening at 8:04 P.M. (Mongolian time) Ziaya obeyed the Gospel for the forgiveness of her sins.
Zaiya is the wife of Eric who obeyed the Gospel on the last trip to Mongolia one year ago. She has attended worship with Eric and their two children during this time. At one point in our study she stopped me and said that her baptism in the other church she attended from before was not according to Scripture and was afraid that she was still in sin. Needless to say, after a little more study she was certain that she needed to be baptized for the forgiveness of sins.
To Go be the Glory!
God is great! Upon arriving in Mongolia and being met by the brethren they have been keeping me busy. From 9:00 A.M until 9:00 P.M we have been engaged in Bible study. One thing is for certain; they have many questions. We have studied topics such as whether it is required by Scripture for women to wear veils, spiritual gifts, evangelism, and what must I do to be saved?
Brethren, these two days have been a blur and I have not even had the opportunity to walk outside of the apartment. I absolutely love that God has counted me worthy to be a part of this tremendous ministry. What a blessing!
At this time I would like to ask you to remember Emma and Ziaya in your prayers. Both of these women are asking many questions and may respond to the Gospel. Ziaya is Eric’s wife (he was baptized last year and has been a tremendous addition to the Lord’s church in Mongolia). Emma was in Eric’s youth group in the church that he was formerly affiliated with.

I look for many blessings of souls harvested to the Lord. All of this is occurring and the rest of the evangelism team has not even arrived yet. God is so good!

To God Be The Glory!
Here I go again! It’s official, I am at Epply Airfield in Omaha, Nebraska waiting to head to Mongolia. This year will prove again to be a fruitful trip and the Gospel will be preached! In the coming days I will be joined by other evangelists, who will labor with me in this great work.
Please continue to pray for this work. That souls will be receptive to the Word of God and that the church meeting in Mongolia will continue to grow. Also, pray for our safety on this trip and that the Lord may care for our families in our absence. Lastly, pray for labors in the vineyard such as this that continually put forth the effort.
My plan is to keep everyone up to date through blogs and photos, so continue to check back to my website for updates.
May God Bless You
