TULSA, OK (PRWEB) June 25, 2004
The Prime minister thanked World Compassion and Terry Law for their work helping the Iraqi people, and asked for continued support for the people of Iraq.
The team spent the last few days in Baghdad distributing medicine and supplies to hospitals. Over the last year World Compassion has distributed over $500,000 in medicine and supplies to the people of Iraq as well as over 700,000 pieces of Christian literature and nearly 50,000 Bibles printed in the native Arabic language.
During this trip Dr. Terry Law had an extensive interview with George Sada, the National Security Advisor of Iraq. Sada provided great insight as to the views of the Iraqi people and the liberation as well as their views on the American occupation. Of great interest was the discussion regarding the future of Christians in Iraq. "Allawi promised them that he would return everything back to the Christians that were taken by Saddam," said Sada. "Christian schools, churches all go back. Plus we will give you some more." Sada specifically mentioned the welcoming of the return of the International English School in Iraq and the Jesuit Baghdad College.
Sada went on to discuss the impact that World Compassion and other Christian organizations have had over the last year. "Iraq is under reconstruction. Reconstruction of everything. Starting with you and me because the human being was the biggest loss in this country. Before buildings, pipes, oil, it is the human being," said Sada. "I want to show everybody what America has done for this country."
Dr. Terry Law's interview with George Sada continued to cover all of the major topics including the fate of Saddam, the interim government, the improvements with the police and the Iraqi army, as well as opportunities for women in the new government and the continued violence from Al Qaeda. Sada claims that there are more than 3,000 Al Qaeda in Iraq and at least 15 of them are presently in suicide bombing cars driving around looking for a target to bomb.
World CompassionÂs web site at WorldCompassion.tv details the trips to Iraq over the past year through an online photo gallery, video gallery, and most notably, the audio testimony recorded live from Baghdad during the day of the capture of Saddam Hussein. World CompassionÂs website offers visitors a free DVD of Iraqi video footage showing the Iraqi people receiving a variety of necessities, including food, medicine, educational supplies, and Christian literature.
