Georgia

Title: Georgia

Tier: 1

Type: country

Positive social, economic, and political changes continue since 1991. Less corruption and more democratic reform point towards a more peaceful future. Openness to spirituality and Christianity in particular increased greatly! But inter-ethnic conflicts of the past generation displaced nearly 250,000 people. The August War of 2008, when Russian troops briefly occupied much of the country, reversed some of the good economic progress. As a result, the Abkhazia and South Ossetia regions now function as de facto independent republics (supported by Russia), but these are unrecognized as countries by most of the world. Pray for peace in this conflict-plagued region, both within Georgia and beyond.
