Save Saeed

Are you familiar with the plight of Pastor Saeed Abedini?  His wife and kids live right near me and attend a local church that many of my friends attend.  He went to Iran to set up an orphanage and in September was illegally imprisoned in Iran and is being tortured.

His wife, his friends, Calvary Chapel Boise, the American Center for Law and Justice, and numerous Christian recording artists are working together to seek signatures on a petition requesting the US and the UN to publicly demand Saeed’s release.

Would you sign the petition, pray for him and his family, pin this post on Pinterest, and share his story on Facebook? Let’s pray that God will turn the hearts of kings (Prov 21:1) and bring this man back to his family.

  4. It’s now April 2013 and I haven’t heard anymore on the radio about Saeed. Do we have any updated news?

  5. I just heard his story over the radio, and my prayers for him and his family are with them. May our Lord continue to work during this situation, may he continue to give courage and strenght to Saeed and his family. Its a difficult time in theirs lives and all we can do is pray and call out to God, and let God work in this situation. May our Lord and saviour be with us all always.
