(Iraq/Jordan)–Operation Iraqi Freedom is where we begin today’s newscast. Coalition forces continue to bomb Iraq and engage the Iraqi military, but the refugee problem hasn’t materialized. World Concern’s Kelly Miller, who’s along the Iraqi-Jordanian border, says just because it hasn’t materialized, doesn’t mean it won’t. “We’ve really got to be prepared for one of two scenarios. One, that indeed the refugee flow does come across the border in the next coming days or perhaps week or 10 days. But, also, what are our contingency plans for moving into Iraq as it becomes accessible and meeting people’s needs there.” However, as this effort plays out, says Miller, ministry will be the focus. “This is absolutely a collaboration, a cooperative effort on behalf of many organizations starting with the evangelical Christian church here in Jordan, who have really mobilized themselves to meet the needs of those in Iraq.”
