Title: Georgia

Tier: 1

Type: country

Georgia has, for the most part, enjoyed positive social, economic, and political changes since the end of the USSR. Less corruption and more democratic reform point towards a more stable future. Openness to spirituality and Christianity in particular increased greatly in the early days of independence. The August War of 2008, when Russian troops briefly occupied much of the country, reversed much 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. Being Russia’s neighbour is not easy. Pray that Georgia’s development and progress might include not just economic and human development, but spiritual development also.
