Hungarians the least happy people

May 12, 2006

A survey released in October by market research company GfK NOP found that Hungarians are the least happy people. This only serves to support what I have observed in over 16 years of ministry involvement in Hungary. The survey sites some of these factors as reasons why Hungarians are not happy:

  • the worst tobacco death rate in the world
  • widespread alcholism
  • high amounts of pollution
  • the 5th highest suicide rate in the world

I think these factors point to the greatest reason, a lack of spiritual hope. Hungary is a hurting nation and this is one of the reasons that my wife and I continue to have a heart to see Hungary reached for Christ.
