Once a part of Romania and a former Soviet Republic, Moldova declared independence in 1991.
Immediately after, the economy severely declined. Because it relies so heavily on agriculture, Moldova is the poorest country in Europe.
It is also riddled with underground crime and is a vulnerable transit point for human trafficking.
With over 93% of the population practicing Orthodoxy, this is a land steeped in tradition and history. Because the main language is Romanian, there’s debate as to what the Moldovan ethnicity is exactly.
Will you share the peace of God over a land searching for hope and identity?
