Fox News broke news today that Treasure Valley resident and American citizen, Pastor Saeed Abedini, has been imprisoned for months in Iran because of his Christian faith. Pastor Abedini, his wife, Naghmeh, and two children live in Idaho. Pastor Abedini returned to his native Iran to start an orphanage and to visit his family. During his visit, he was harassed by Iranian officials and eventually detained without being charged. He remains in prison today.
The American Center for Law and Justice announced today that it is representing the American based family of Pastor Abedini, and is launching an international campaign to pressure Iran for his immediate release.
Pastor Brad Murphy, is calling on the community of faith at Eagle LifeChurch, Eagle, Idaho to pray fervently for Pastor Saeed Abedini and his family. His life is in danger, his faith is being challenged, and his family is being threatened. Please pray for safety and for Pastor Abedini’s immediate release.
The Assemblies of God, (www.ag.org) and American Center for Law and Justice (www.ACLJ.org) have also release statements in regards to this unfolding story.
