Please Help #SaveSaeed

A few weeks ago my mom tweeted about an American pastor named Saeed Abedini being held and tortured by the radical Iranian regime.  He’s been sentenced to eight years in Iran’s most brutal prison simply because of his Christian faith.

This pastor and father has shown enormous courage, but now Iranians are lying to him in prison — telling him that Americans have forgotten about him.

Yesterday was Save Saeed day, and Christian and country musicians across the U.S., including Toby Mac, Ricky Skaggs, Steven Curtis Chapman, Mercy Me, and many others tweeted for him and signed a petition for his freedom.  (In fact, #SaveSaeed was trending on Twitter yesterday!  Let’s keep it up!) The American Center for Law and Justice represents his family and is organizing a petition on his behalf.  Please consider signing and telling this American pastor that he will never be forgotten.

We should never leave an American behind.

How you can help:

1.  Sign the petition.

2. Tweet using: #SaveSaeed.

3. Pray for Pastor Saeed, his family in Iran, and his wife and children here in the United States.

    Bristol, I genuinely from the bottom of my heart thank you for your signature on the petition, this blog post, your tweeting, and your prayers. Saeed and Naghmeh are personal friends of mine and I would very much like to see him home. I have been brought to tears on a daily basis as I see people from all over the nation and world, from all different walks of life and beliefs, stand up for him and also for human rights in general. Another great way that people can help is by sending him letters in prison. He may never get these letters, but if he does it will be VERY encouraging to him and if he doesn’t it will send a strong message to the authorities in Iran that we have not forgotten him and do not intend to. Here is a link with specific instructions on how to write the letter/the address:

    God bless!

    My prayers are with him and his family. Pastor Saeed, I’m believing for your release in Jesus’ Name!
