April 8-10 Mega Clinic Cancelled
Pathway Leaders Look to Reschedule Indy Event in the Future
March 13, 2020
Dear Pathway to Health Volunteer,
The Your Best Pathway to Health Board of Directors met on Friday, March 13, 2020 to discuss any further developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic and how they affect the scheduled Pathway to Health mega clinic in Indianapolis, Indiana.
The Board considered both the recent announcement by Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb to limit non-essential gatherings to 250 or less people and the decisions by the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists to suspend all staff travel.
In light of those and other considerations, the Board recommended with great sadness the postponement of the Pathway to Health event on April 8-10 while reaching out to the governor’s office and local Indianapolis leadership regarding ways in which we might provide help, services and resources both now and in the future.
The postponement of the event means that the April 8-10, 2020 mega clinic has been cancelled. The Pathway to Health Executive Committee will work with local and state government leaders as well as the leadership of the Lake Union Conference, the Lake Region Conference and the Indiana Conference to explore the possibility of rescheduling the mega clinic in Indianapolis sometime in the future. We will keep our volunteers informed as developments occur.
The decision to postpone the mega clinic was a very difficult one to make. Board members wrestled with their strong commitment to the safety of Pathway volunteers and Indianapolis residents and with the potential for healing that Pathway to Health would bring to those same residents.
In the end, Pathway to Health recognizes and affirms measures that are being taken around the country and the world to curb the spread of COVID-19 by limiting and cancelling large gatherings of people.
Pathway to Health leaders, in conjunction with the Lake Union Conference, Lake Region Conference and Indiana Conference will continue to explore ways in which we can together best serve the residents of Indianapolis during these crucial times. When the details of the rescheduled event are known, we will publish that information to you.
We are so very grateful to every volunteer who was planning to join the Pathway team in Indianapolis and for the many hours of dedicated hard work already put into planning. We are also thankful for the department heads who attended our recent planning meetings. Your spirit of service and sacrifice is deeply inspiring and we are certain that your contribution is not in vain as we look to rescheduling the Indianapolis mega clinic.
We are continuing to stay in prayer and looking for the Lord’s wisdom at every turn, as we continue to pray for families and individuals affected by COVID-19.
