“So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.” Matthew 9:38
Republic of Georgia definitely needs more workers in their fields. Georgian Evangelical community (estimated between 5,000 and 10,000) has persevered through persecution – they experienced extreme discrimination, harassment and intimidation from government and their society. Non-Orthodox church buildings were seized, restricting congregations to home Bible-study groups, their religious literature was burned and individuals were fired from their jobs.
Thankfully, in recent years there have been favorable changes in the political climate, giving slightly more freedom to religious minorities and opening new opportunities for ministry work.
- Due to financial difficulties, to this day many churches meet in homes
- Christian (non-Orthodox) literature and theology materials are scares
- There is no Christian radio in the country
- Superbook will be the first Christian animated cartoon series in Georgian
Today, our brothers and sisters in Georgia, need our prayers and support. As they cry out to our Father, may our hearts and minds be open to hear our personal calling to serve Him.
Opportunities are plentiful in the Republic of Georgia. Please join us in spreading the Good news of Salvation and may we witness as our Savior, Jesus Christ, changes lives of individuals, families, communities and a nation.
