Daughter of a noble Roman family and a relative of Saint George, Saint Nina was commissioned in a dream to go preach the faith of Christ to the people of Georgia (Iberia). As a testimony of the truth of this vision, when she awoke she found a cross had miraculously appeared in her hands. By the prayers and preaching of this young woman, the pagan worship of Iberia was overthrown and the king and his subjects embraced Christianity, earning Saint Nina the title "equal to the apostles and evangelizer of Georgia."
