BREAKING: American Pastor Saeed Freed

By Jay Sekulow1452959798326

American Pastor Saeed Abedini has just been released from imprisonment in Iran.

[1.17.2015 UPDATE: We can now confirm that Pastor Saeed is safely out of Iran and being medically evaluated at a U.S. military base in Germany.]

For more than three years, Pastor Saeed – a U.S. citizen – has endured imprisonment in Iran.

We can now officially confirm that Pastor Saeed has been freed.  In addition there are reports that 3 other Americans imprisoned in Iran have also been released.

News broke late last night that Pastor Saeed had been taken from his prison cell to Iran’s Central Intelligence agency.  While the details are still coming in, we can confirm that this morning he was released.

This is a major victory.  We are incredibly grateful to the more than 1.1 million people who have joined us in fighting across the globe for Pastor Saeed’s freedom.

We’re delighted this day has finally arrived. American Pastor Saeed Abedini spent more than three years in an Iranian prison. We’re grateful for the millions of people who have stood with us in our ongoing efforts – both in this country and abroad – to secure his release.  We have worked and prayed that this day would finally arrive. And now, Pastor Saeed can return home.

Pastor Saeed’s wife Naghmeh, responded:

“This has been an answer to prayer. This is a critical time for me and my family. We look forward to Saeed's return and want to thank the millions of people who have stood with us in prayer during this most difficult time.”

We will continue to bring you updates as we are able.  Please share this amazing news and continue to pray in earnest for Pastor Saeed and his family.
