FAR Artsakh family support


FAR Outreach Stories: An Artsakh Soldier’s Wife and Family

Marina Balayan is a mother from Artsakh who calls her small dorm room in Yerevan “home” for now. She and her three children, her mother, and her mother-in-law have been sharing the space for more than two months.
Marina’s husband Hayk (age 38) was serving as an anti-tank battery commander in the army of Martuni, Artsakh, when he was injured in October. He has been in coma ever since, at a hospital not far from Marina and the others.
The family had previously enjoyed a peaceful life in Martuni, where Marina worked as an elementary school teacher. Currently, Marina tries to organize her kids’ days in Yerevan. She is glad that Ovsanna and Edgar are now in school; but Erik is still reluctant to go back. Overall, she remains uncertain about her family’s future. “I just want Hayk to recover. That’s all I ask God for,” she said.
The Fund for Armenian Relief is assisting Marina—and others from Artsakh like her—with shelter, food, education, healthcare, and other forms of support, to help them move ahead to rebuild their lives. To support these efforts, make a donation to support FAR’s work today.
Prayer Request
Call during the week to request prayers, hokehankist, visitations to the sick, and house blessings. Please let Church office know if you are planning to have Hokehankist Service. It would be appreciated to have a light lunch or coffee hour following Badarak in memory of the deceased.
Help Us to Update Church Directory
Dear parishioners and friends, Parish Council of Soorp Haroutiun Armenian Church is looking more people who can work and prepare the church Directory.
Altar flowers are a gift to the church. If a family wants to decorate the church with flowers, they are free to do so. If the family needs flowers for the reception hall or cemetery they should make prior arrangements.
Altar flowers donated by Mrs. Varsenig Nakutis in memory of her brother Haigazoun Terterian
Home or Hospital Bound
As an extended family of St. Gregory, many of our sick, elderly and home bound faithful are unable to attend Church. They may be at home or in the hospital but most importantly: They are not forgotten and we would like to make sure to visit them. If you know of someone who is unable to attend Church or is in need of a pastoral visitation, please inform Fr. Paren directly Email:  or call the church office at 407-876-7732.
The Parish Council of Soorb Haroutiun Armenian Church of Orlando is looking forward to restart the Women's Guild in our church. We are asking those who are ready to help and interested on this to contact our Chairman Mr. John Shahinian or call to church office.
