Pastor Saeed's Message to Supporters

By Jay Sekulow1453153084003

I just got off the phone with American Pastor Saeed Abedini – a U.S. citizen – who was just released this weekend from an Iranian prison after more than three years of harsh imprisonment for his Christian faith.

I cannot underscore enough how grateful he is for the tireless efforts of the millions of people who prayed and spoke out for his freedom over the last nearly three and a half years.

In a phone call from a U.S. military hospital in Germany where he’s being treated, Pastor Saeed thanked our entire ACLJ team and the more than 1.1 million ACLJ members who worked to secure his freedom, saying, “May God bless you for everything you did.”

Pastor Saeed has endured the worst conditions imaginable.  He is now free and looking forward to returning home to America.  He is receiving much needed medical care at a U.S. military base in Germany and his road to recovery from all he has endured will take some time.  Please continue to pray for Pastor Saeed and his family.

I want to join Pastor Saeed in thanking all our friends and members here at the ACLJ who have stood with us, resolute, in our advocacy across the globe for Pastor Saeed’s freedom.

As we celebrate his release, it is important to remember that Pastor Saeed was just one of thousands imprisoned for their faith and millions facing deadly persecution just for being Christians.

Now that Pastor Saeed is free and safe, we turn our attention and advocacy to the plight of numerous other persecuted Christians.  More than 1.1 million of you made your voice heard for Pastor Saeed, and now he is free.  It’s time for us to raise our voices again.  Be heard with us as we aggressively advocate for Christians in the Middle East facing genocide for their faith.
