AMAA Executive Director Visits Friends and Supporters in Southern California

PARAMUS, NJ–The “Together, We Can Build Miracles” capital campaign that the Armenian Missionary Association of America (AMAA) publicly launched in October 2008 is in full swing and continues to unite the actions of board members, supporters and volunteers from all across the country.

In March AMAA’s Executive Director Andy Torigian traveled to Fresno and Los Angeles to meet with and thank supporters, during a couple of weeks packed with special events.  The initial gathering kicking off this road trip was the March 7th AMAA Board Meeting which was hosted by the Armenian Evangelical Brethren Church in Glendale; the Charlotte & Elise Merdinian School anniversary banquet followed, held at the United Armenian Congregational Church; followed by the annual AMAA Orphan/Child Care luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel on March 21st and the 55th Year of Ministry Banquet for Reverend Bernard Guekguezian in Fresno.

In between these special occasions Mr. Torigian had the opportunity to meet with several individuals to discuss the Together, we can build miracles campaign.  Mr. Torigian returned to Paramus with very encouraging news.

“With each visit we continue to receive generous gifts from people who are making new pledges, or providing payments towards their campaign pledges.  The AMAA is humbled by the incredible support of our extended AMAA family.” In all, this last visit to California garnered a total of $450,000 in commitments toward current capital priorities in Armenia.

Through this capital campaign the AMAA continues to advance its mission by fostering excellence in the humanitarian relief, education, medical and spiritual programs which continue to benefit people in Armenia and around the world.  The rewards of this campaign will be profound ‘shelping to transform the lives of the children, families, and communities served by the AMAA.
