Mingrelia is in the western part of Georgia. The Mingrelians speak, read and write in Georgian. Most of them live in rural regions in two-story brick or wooden houses. In the towns they tend to live in apartments.
Agriculture is the main work of the Mingrelians. Maize is the main crop.
Couples marry young and in the rural regions they have large families. Official marriages are no longer religious but some have a second marriage in a church. The largest form of birth control is by abortion.
The main religion among them is Georgian Orthodox. The Mingrelians do not go to church a lot. Death is mourned in public and the mourning is very strong.
Laws of inheritance allow justice for women now but the Government tends not to intervene and leaves it to the families.
* Pray that sorrow in death will cause the Mingrelians to give their lives to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that the Church goers will seek to have a living relationship with Jesus Christ.
