The Unreached Peoples Prayer Profiles
Georgia, is a nation state on the Black Sea, located between the Caucasus Mountains and Turkey. There are three autonomous republics within its borders, Abkhazia, South Ossetia and Adzharia.
Georgia was annexed by Russia in 1801, was briefly independent in 1920-21, conquered by the Bolshevik Communists, then once again independent in 1991. Georgia's first president stoked hatred against non-Georgian minorities, resulting in three wars. Georgia and neighboring Armenia are surrounded by Muslim ethnic groups, and since independence some Orthodox leaders have sought to deny non-Orthodox Christians the opportunity for open evangelism. Sadly, Georgian racial pride has antagonized the ethnic minorities, and they will probably be better reached by foreigners.
