Pulling Back the Iron Curtain: Stories from a Cold War Missionary
PULLING BACK THE IRON CURTAIN
Stories from a Cold War Missionary
While the world was reading one story, God was writing another.
In 1977, amidst the bitterly cold days of the frigid Cold War, a young couple responded to God's dramatic call on their lives to go and live covertly behind The Iron Curtain. Filled with faith and buffeted by fear, they left the familiarity of family and the security of NATO to locate behind enemy lines inside Communist Poland in order to establish a Kingdom beachhead of evangelism and discipleship. From award-winning author Debby Thompson, Pulling Back the Iron Curtain is a collection of personal and intimate stories revealing a firsthand account of that unique assignment. Now, with authenticity and vulnerability, this pioneer missionary makes known to the world the tender and dramatic workings of God even behind the Iron Curtain.
"Debby Thompson's book chronicles an epic history the church must not lose. My own ministry behind the Iron Curtain validates teh need to remember the miraculous works during an era when silence wa essential to the success of the mission. Now the time has come to pull back the curtain and see what God has done!"

"Bill Bright invited all who would listen to 'come help change the world.' Debby and Larry Thompson heard the call and did just that. Their stories bring alive the life behind the Iron Curtain in graphic detail. They are true heros in my eyes."
