Some of you may know that Pastor Saeed Abedini has been held in and Iranian prison for sharing the good news of Jesus. Here’s a link to the original article:
The U.S. pastor has been imprisoned in Evin Prison in Tehran for more than a year and is currently serving an 8-year sentence. The ACLJ, which represents Abedini’s wife, Naghmeh, and two children in the U.S., has said that the pastor is being punished for his Christian faith.
The latest report is that President Obama has asked for his release. Let’s pray and hope that God moves quickly in his release and safety. Pastor Saeed is a husband and father, so there are many that need and miss him greatly.
