  Iceland 
Description
A volcanically active island republic just south of the Arctic Circle, Iceland derives its culture from ninth century Viking settlers. It is credited with establishing a national assembly forming the basis for Europe's oldest parliament. Among the world's healthiest people, Icelanders are reached more by education in the Seventh-day Adventist school at Reyjavik, the capital city, than by health education. Members also witness through Icelandic subtitling of video tapes for personal use as well as local television. Women's prayer breakfasts and retreats have been successful. Members are predominantly over 40, as younger people emigrate for work. Materialism, secularism, and spiritual lethargy are deterrents in this mostly Lutheran nation.
