American Pastor Saeed Abedini is imprisoned in Iran for being a Christian.
He has been beaten. He has been tormented.
He has suffered nearly three years in some of the world’s worst prisons – simply because he is a Christian.

Time is of the essence for Pastor Saeed. We must not be silent. Join the growing call:
