Cyprus

Cyprus has been a divided nation since 1974. The division is between the North and the South. The South is the legitimate Republic of Cyprus, part of the EU with a Greek speaking culture. The North is governed by the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, only recognized by Turkey.
Cyprus is a major tourist destination in the Mediterranean. It has recently suffered an economic crisis in the banking sector.
The Republic of Cyprus joined the European Union on 1 January 2008.

PLACE:

Cyprus is a divided island in the Mediterranean Sea, south of Turkey.
The southern part is known as the Republic of Cyprus and is mainly Greek speaking. The northern part is known as the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, or TRNC. Nicosia is the capital, with 253 000 people.

The weather is mild with a Mediterranean climate.

The Republic of Cyprus has a diversified economy with heavy reliance on banking and tourism. Since its creation, the "TRNC" has heavily relied on financial assistance from Turkey.

Long Term Opportunities

We are passionate people who are committed to building the Kingdom of God in Cyprus and beyond. Though we are diverse, young and old, from different places and backgrounds, we have one thing in common: Our desire is for a deeper relationship with the Lord Jesus and to see God`s Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven. There are different YWAM ministries on the island.

RANDOM FACTS:

The capital of Cyprus is Nicosia. It is the only capital in the world to be divided by “The Green Line” between two nations – the Republic of Cyprus (South Cyprus) and the Turkish Republic of North Cyprus.

Cyprus became a province of the Roman Empire in 45AD, and was the first country to be governed by a Christian.

The English crusader king, King Richard the Lionheart, wed Queen Joanna at Limassol Castle on May 12, 1191. To this day it is the only foreign venue at which an English Royal Wedding has been hosted.

The crime rate is very low in Cyprus, making it one of the safest places in the world to live.
