Slovenians are a South Slavic people and they speak Slovenian which is a South Slavic language. There are many spoken dialects. Slovenia was a part of the former Yugoslavia until the early 1990s.
Many of the Slovene are classed as Catholics but many of them are secular and it is a very secular country. There are evangelical Lutherans living near the border with Hungary.
Family life is important to the Slovene though young people are now leaving the home and some in the families are moving to the cities and towns. They like tidiness.
Slovenes can change when they are with others to suit the person they are talking to. They like eye contact when greeting people.
In Slovenia there is a shortage of housing and homes are small. Most get married in their twenties and about half the marriages end in divorce. Slovenes love to eat bread and potatoes too.
* Pray that God will show ways to get the Slovenes to want to learn about the gospel.
* Pray that they will find secularism does not work and that they will turn to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that the evangelicals in Slovenia will help lead the others to salvation also.
