Bordering with five countries: Poland in the north, Ukraine to the east, Hungary to the south and both Austria and the Czech Republic on its western borders. This land-locked country has some amazing scenery. There are lakes, forests, and stunning mountains.
Membership with the EU has provided economic opportunities which have resulted in a higher standard of living for many. However, this has had an adverse effect on evangelical commitment. Praise God that among the Roma communities, which make up 10% of Slovakia’s population, there are reports of many being converted to Christ.

- For Bohuslava. Her ministry and commitment to Roma people in Eastern Slovakia is invaluable.
- For Hermanovce Opal Camp which is adjacent to the evangelical church. This campsite is a wonderful means to reach children and young people with the Gospel and disciple those who have come to faith in Christ.
- For church planting opportunities for those sponsored through SGA.
- That believers will keep focused on Gospel advancement in what can be a difficult, hostile environment.
