Latvia

Latvia joined the EU in 2004 and enjoyed an economic boom, but the credit crunch destroyed this, and the economy shrank by 20%. Life has been tough for many people, and though the economy is now growing fast (5.6% in 2012), outside Riga many peoples’ lives remain unaffected. There is a prevalent attitude of spiritual apathy and hopelessness among many. Latvia is also divided by its Soviet dominated past, with a large minority speaking only Russian, which was recently rejected as an official language in a referendum. Work among young people is vital, as they often have a different outlook to those who lived through Communism, and may be more open to the gospel.
