Today, the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention released this recent interview with Naghmeh Abedini, wife of US citizen and pastor, Saeed Abedini, imprisoned in Iran for Gospel related work.
I’m thankful to have this moment to remind you of the plight of Idaho pastor, Saeed Abedini.
Naghmeh provided the following brief statement:
As Christians we know that nothing is more powerful than the power of prayer. But as Christians we are also called to speak out and take action on injustices happening around us. My husband, Pastor Saeed Abedini, is an American citizen imprisoned illegally in Iran and being tortured and abused because of his Christian faith. He needs your prayers. Our family asks you to stand with us and contact your local government officials to voice your concern about pastor Saeed and Christian persecution around the world. In Hebrews 13:3 we are told to remember those in prison as if imprisoned with them.
