Dear Participant in Network 2020,
It is with a heavy heart that I inform you that our SAT-7 Executive Board decided to cancel NETWORK 2020. This decision was taken after reviewing research collected from government and WHO advisories, our local SAT-7 leadership as well as the decisions and practices of other International organisations with regards to International travel and meetings. The decision was not made out of a fear of contagion by the Coronavirus (although this would have been a relatively large gathering) but more because of concerns about participants being caught up in possible quarantine procedures, delaying their onward or return travel. And, there are also concerns of non or under-reporting of cases of the Coronavirus in Turkey.
All registered Network 2020 participants will be sent access to the Network reports and videos, when they are finalised.
Sincerely in Christ,
Rita El-Mounayer, SAT-7 CEO
DARE TO BELIEVE
Our theme for NETWORK 2020 is Dare to Believe. While secularism and atheism is on the rise, persecution, discrimination and attacks against Christians in the Middle East and North Africa continues. Nevertheless, despite these difficult circumstances, Christians in the Middle East and North Africa Dare to Believe. It is proof that God is at work, opening eyes and changing hearts, giving the strength, courage and perseverance to remain faithful to Jesus Christ. At SAT-7 we hear wonderful testimonies demonstrating God’s work in people’s lives, and we can’t wait to share them with you at NETWORK 2020.
