Interesting Facts About Slovenia

Slovenia flagBackground: The Slovene lands were part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until the latter’s dissolution at the end of World War I. In 1918, the Slovenes joined the Serbs and Croats in forming a new multinational state, which was named Yugoslavia in 1929. After World War II, Slovenia became a republic of the renewed Yugoslavia, which though communist, distanced itself from Moscow’s rule.

Dissatisfied with the exercise of power by the majority Serbs, the Slovenes succeeded in establishing their independence in 1991 after a short 10-day war. Historical ties to Western Europe, a strong economy, and a stable democracy have assisted in Slovenia’s transformation to a modern state. Slovenia acceded to both NATO and the EU in the spring of 2004; it joined the eurozone in 2007.

    I am a missionary pastors wife in Slovenia and would love to help supply you with information about the country and how to pray for us. We are currently having a national womans conf each year for all the Christian woman. It’s on Nov 9, and we would love prayer. We are working on a woman’s website that will be like a magazine. It will have things to encourage and help women in all the areas that we face. It is my heart to also have a conference that is more spirit filled for women. I am praying about how that can come together.
    God is doing wonderful things. We are seeing many new believers. Right now one prayer need would be for the new believers to be discipled and not to get discouraged and to fall away. Check out our website and you will see more testimonies and what is happening. We have several projects in the works and are believing in faith for God to open doors so we can publish these on a national scale. Thanks,
    By the way, I am an American and my husband is Slovene!
    Blessings and keep up the good ministry!
