METS SARIAR, Armenia--In a small village in northwest Armenia, just 10 miles from the Turkey border, we met an older couple, Robert and Zare Azizbekyan. They are members of the Heifer project here. They stopped preparing their potato garden to talk with us for a few minutes. We asked over the fence how they were doing. Robert answered:

"Never been better. We are working. If we are not working then we die."
