(Iraq) — Meanwhile, an evangelical organization is gearing up to help the people of Iraq. Operation Mobilization‘s George Smith says they need to be prepared for two scenarios. “Our organization and many others are putting together contingency plans. If there’s actual fighting, the Christian community needs to be in a position to be able to assist. If there’s a solution outside of war, let’s say a leadership change, then we still would need to respond as quickly as possible.” Smith says their goal is to share Christ in word and deed. He says many in the Middle East seem open. “We have seen an increase of people seeking to know more about Jesus. Of course that varies from country to country. At the same time there is a sense within a smaller portion of the population of increased hostilities and potential persecution.” Pray for believers working in these areas.
