Moldova, a small nation between Ukraine and Romania, has throughout history been concurred by the Greek, Romans, Soviets and others and it has served as a passage between Europe and Asia. Due to its history, the people who live in Moldova today are very diverse and often speak several languages.
Moldova has a rich and fertile land with many natural and human resources but unfortunately is the poorest in Europe! A striking 72% live below the poverty line and unemployment among adults is 60-80%. Many Moldavians seek work in Europe, leaving their children to be cared by mothers or grandparents.
Approximately 70% of the population (4.6 million) are Eastern Orthodox Christians, although most are nominal Christians and base their faith solely on their infant baptism. Only 3 % of the population are evangelical believers. The Moldavian people are searching for truth and meaning of life and are eager to hear to Gospel.
