wall-downNovember 10, 2009 marked the 20 year anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, which became a milestone to the fall of the communist regime in Eastern Europe. For those living under the regime, it was more than just a historical date of a physical structure falling. For those being persecuted for their faith, it was a spiritual wall of bondage that fell that day.

The fall of communism meant no longer having to be underground, no longer having to hide your faith, and no longer having to be in fear. Today, 20 years latter in this month of Thanksgiving, we are thankful to be able to live in a democratic Bulgaria where we can freely thank the Lord for His many blessings. We are thankful for church prayer meetings now being an open practice and the church being free to communicate with our Heavenly Father; for without communication there is no unification. In unity with Christ, we are stronger than any oppressive spirit.

We are thankful that we are unified with Christ under His hand of protection, in order that we may live out our purpose in life that we learn through Him. We find our direction through His Word and this Word brings freedom within and about us. We are thankful for this freedom in which we find purpose. With this purpose we find hope and with this hope we are able to fulfill the Heaving calling on our lives.

Happy Thanksgiving 2009 from all of us at Cup and Cross Ministries International in Bulgaria
