Proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound. (Isaiah 61:1)
In 1989 the fall of the Berlin Wall marked the beginning of the largest liberation in modern history. 270 million Russian speakers gained religious freedom for the first time in a thousand years. The Gospel was quick to follow. The ministers and people of these churches, who grew up in the Soviet Union, are former… convicts, drug addicts, alcoholics, mafia, thieves, enforcers, atheists… set free by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
