Title: Estonia

Tier: 1

Type: country

Estonia found political and economic success after the time of Soviet domination (1940-1988). Poverty remains a problem, and greed for material possessions grows as the economy grows. Estonia faces a crisis of values as the people become more and more secular in their attitudes. Pray for a wise and upright government to model righteousness and biblical values.
