(Iraq)–Elsewhere, there has been an outbreak of dysentery in southern Iraqi cities, especially in Basrah, due to contaminated drinking water. With the infrastructure restoration going more slowly than expected, the Southern Baptists’ International Mission Board has a team going in this week to build water purification systems. Pray that clean water and medical care will reach the ill in a timely manner. Pray too, that the compassion they show will open the doors for the hope of the Gospel.
