Excerpt from Illustrated Armenia and the ArmeniansI was born January 7, 1837, in Albastan in the state of Aleppa. When I was a young man, 17 years old, that was in year 1852, some strangers came to my own town Albastan. After staying at an inn for a few days, they left the city, but they left four copies of the New Testament and several religious pamphlets in their room. The inn was kept by my cousin; so he got those blessed books and pamphlets, and a few days after that he presented a copy of the New Testament to me. I learned also that the strangers, who visited our city, were missionaries of the American Board. I read this book or New Testament always secretly in some private place. I always kept it in my pocket, for fear that I would be persecuted for reading it; and besides if I had read it in public it might have been taken from me and thrown in the fire, because in that time Armenian patriarchs in Constantinople had given special command and orders to all Armenian churches all over Asia Minor against missionaries and all their publications also. For that reason nearly two years I kept reading my New Testament, which worked its wonderful result upon my heart. I was convicted of my sinfulness, repented of my sins and found forgiveness for my sins, and peace to my disturbed soul. That Bible was the only means of my conversion and subsequent happiness and blessing of my life.After a few years, Rev. Beebee and Rev. Perkins, American missionaries of Marash, had visited my native town, Albastan, and had organized the evangelical Armenian church with only eight members, one of whom was myself.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
