The Cricket & Seagull: Couple from LDS Charities serves Syrian refugees in Jordan
Jim and Karyn Anderson, LDS Charities
The "Arab Spring” has swept across the Middle East this year, bringing new freedoms to people in a number of nations. But in Syria, the winter approaches, and hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees who have fled the fighting by crossing into Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan — nearly half a million and growing in number — are finding life more difficult than ever.
In one of the many refugee camps, you’ll find Jim and Karyn Anderson, two Utahns who have been serving as humanitarian workers for LDS Charities in Lebanon and now in Jordan, trying to bring relief and encouragement to the fathers and mothers who have made their way from Syria over the Jordanian border by night, often through gunfire with their children, seeking any kind of safe haven.
That's this week on The Cricket and Seagull.
