Praise God who shuts and no man opens and opens and no man can shut! After He has tried us he brings us forth as gold.
We have just received word Saeed Abedini and the other 3 Americans have bee released. More details to follow.
PRAISE GOD! He has changed the hearts of men and answered our prayers!!! Our GOD is faithful, let us honor no one else but HIM!
Todd Daniels, Regional Manager for the Middle East said, “We are rejoicing this morning with the Abedini family and Christians around the world over the release of Pastor Saeed from prison after more than three years solely for his faith. This is a huge day of celebration and the culmination of many long efforts of advocacy on his behalf. We are grateful for the efforts of the U.S. State Department and other entities involved in this case. We also rejoice with the global body of Christ who have prayed and spoken on Saeed’s behalf in so many ways. We urge the Iranian government to continue to take steps to not only release American citizens but to protect the basic rights of their own citizens. Iranians of all faiths should be free to believe as they will and meet with others who share those beliefs, including the very same beliefs for which Pastor Saeed was imprisoned. The efforts on behalf of persecuted Christians, both in Iran and around the world, have not stopped.“
