Interesting Facts About Moldova

Moldova flagBackground: A large portion of present day Moldovan territory became a province of the Russian Empire in 1812 and then unified with Romania in 1918 in the aftermath of World War I. This territory was then incorporated into the Soviet Union at the close of World War II. Although Moldova has been independent from the Soviet Union since 1991, Russian forces have remained on Moldovan territory east of the Nistru River in the breakaway region of Transnistria, whose population is roughly equally composed of ethnic Ukrainians, Russians, and Moldovans.

Years of Communist Party rule in Moldova from 2001-2009 ultimately ended with election-related violent protests and a rerun of parliamentary elections in 2009. Since then, a series of pro-European ruling coalitions have governed Moldova. As a result of the country’s most recent legislative election in February 2019, parliamentary seats are split among the left-leaning Socialist Party (35 seats), the former ruling Democratic Party (30 seats), and the center-right ACUM bloc (26 seats). Parliament voted in Prime Minister Ion CHICU and his cabinet on 14 November 2019, two days after voting to remove his predecessor, ACUM co-leader Maia SANDU, who had been in office since June 2019.

Ethnic Groups: Moldovan 75.1%, Romanian 7%, Ukrainian 6.6%, Gagauz 4.6%, Russian 4.1%, Bulgarian 1.9%, other 0.8% (2014 est.)

    Invitation to the Europe Prayer Summit, Jan 27-29, Bucharest
    Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
    Warm greetings and hope this finds you keeping well! Our organizing team and I wanted to make sure you get an invitation to this prayer summit. Please also help us get the word out to any prayer leaders and intercessors in your networks that you think should be invited. Most of all we hope you can join us in Bucharest next month as we seek the Lord for His peace and transformation, especially for an end to the Ukraine conflict, which with further escalation could become a much more serious world war. Please pray about taking part yourself and encouraging others to participate.

    If you would like to also endorse this Summit with a brief sentence or two in a quick return email, it would be appreciated.

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon,
    (on behalf of the organizing team)



    January 27-29, 2023

    Bucharest, Romania


    Greetings in the wonderful Name of our Lord Jesus Christ!                    


    We would like to invite you to participate at the European Prayer Summit in Bucharest, Romania from 27 to 29 January 2023.  


    This will be a time of prayer, when we will listen to the Lord together and hear what He would have us do on behalf of the Body of Christ in Europe. We believe He will bring healing and transformation to our continent as we connect and pray for our nations together.


    It is painfully obvious that our Continent is in desperate need of God’s mercy and grace. God is clearly shaking everything that can be shaken, and it is time to once again bring together brothers and sisters from across this continent to pray together, learn from each other, and to encourage and build one another up. We hope that a significant number of World Prayer Leaders will join in and participate. 

    Believing that “with God all things are possible”, this prayer summit will be an internationally coordinated, united prayer effort for the holistic transformation of the Continent and the nations that are contained in it. It is holistic in that informed prayer is focused on Continent-wide and national needs, across social, political, economic, and spiritual realms. Those needs may be ethnic conflict, war, political oppression, economic corruption, exploitation of the poor, religious persecution, or the need for spiritual renewal due to laxness or division in the church.¬†¬†

    As people come together to seek the Lord for their nations, He promises to bring healing, forgiveness, and restoration. (2 Chronicles 7:14; Isaiah 41:17-20; Ezekiel 36-37; Revelation 22:1-3).

    This summit is open to all Prayer Leaders of our Continent, especially our younger Prayer Leaders. For those who may not be able to attend, we will gladly receive your nomination for another person to come in your place.


    Please arrange to arrive in Bucharest on Thursday, January 26, 2023, by morning or early afternoon. Plan to leave after lunch on Sunday, January 29, 2023. Please make your arrangements for travel as soon as possible. If you travel by air, a shuttle is available from Otopeni International Airport to the Crown Plaza Hotel in Bucharest. UBER is also available.


    All meetings will take place at our host site, the Crown Plaza Hotel in Bucharest. You may extend your accommodation (at your own expense). If you desire to do so, please note this on your registration form and return it to us. 


    We would greatly appreciate your attendance and endorsement, and look forward to you participating with us in January. If you can not attend and you are willing to endorse this event, please send your name, ministry, cell and email to: We look forward to hearing from you.

    Yours warmly in Christ,
