Missional Commitment in Moldova

Baptists in Moldova

Moldova is a country situated between Romania and Ukraine that is populated by 3,5 million people. The nation is comprised of several ethnic groups - 75% are Moldavians speaking the Romanian language; the others are Ukrainian, Russian, Gagauz (Turkish), Jewish and Roma people. The predominant religion is Eastern Orthodox Christianity. The capital and largest city is Chisinau.

Moldova is a rural country. Its exceptionally fertile soil is among the best in Europe. An irony is that in spite of its great potential, Moldova is listed among the poorest countries in Europe… About one million Moldavians happen to be the work migrants scattered all over the Russian speaking world and in Western Europe or USA.
