URGENT PRAYERS REQUESTED FOR THE SAT-7 EGYPT TEAM
A hearing was held yesterday—Sunday 11th October—at the Public Prosecutor’s Office, during which it became clear that all charges are based on a lack of and/or incorrect information. A decision will be taken by the Public Prosecutor in the next few days concerning whether this case will go to court.
In the meantime, the confiscated equipment remains in police custody and the normal activities of SAT-7 in Egypt are severely disrupted.
The work of SAT-7 Egypt is carried out under the legal umbrella of the Coptic Evangelical Church but its services are in support of all the Church denominations in Egypt.
Though facing challenges, the SAT-7 team in Egypt remain encouraged by the love and support they have received over this difficult weekend. We would ask for your continued prayers. As Farid Samir wrote yesterday, we invite you to please "Unite with us in prayer so that we can complete our ministry - one based on love and which aims to serve our beloved country [Egypt]”.
