Persecuted Pastor Saeed Abedini Leads 30 to Christ in Iran Prison

The wife of the American pastor imprisoned in Iran for his Christian faith says her husband remains bold for Jesus Christ in prison.

Saeed Abedini's wife, Naghmeh, recently spoke to students at Liberty University about her family's plight.

She said in spite of being tortured and asked to deny his faith in Christ and return to Islam, Pastor Saeed is a light for Jesus in Evin Prison, one of the worst in the world.

"They've told him many times that they would free him and allow him to return to our family, the kids and I, if he would deny his Christian faith, and he's stood strong in that prison. He's led many, many—over 30 people—to Christ in that prison," she told the audience.

A special prayer vigil for Pastor Saeed is being held worldwide Thursday—the one-year anniversary of his imprisonment in Iran.

It's also the day Iran's new president will be making his first trip to America to address the United Nations.

"Now is the time to speak out, to urge Iran to release Pastor Saeed," Jordon Sekulow, executive director for the American Center for Law and Justice, said in an email.
