PRAY FOR PASTOR ABEDINI IN IRAN
Since September, 2012, the Rev. Saeed Abedini, 32-year-old Iranian-American pastor has languished in Tehran's notorious Evin prison on national security charges for leading the underground house-church movement. On January 27, 2013, Rev. Abedini was sentenced to eight years in prison. Abedini's wife and two young children are in Idaho. The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom labeled the charges against Abedini "bogus" and asserted they were used "to suppress religious belief and activity of which the Iranian government does not approve."
Pray for the release of Rev. Abedini!
(From a report in WORLD magazine, Feb. 9, 2013 issue.)
One way we can help is to post this everywhere we know. The more visible Pastor Abedini is, the more likely the Iranians might be inclined to release him. At least, he and his family may find out that they are not forgotten by the Church.
