After the release of Pastor Saeed Abedini, his wife Naghmeh announced on Facebook:
“I want to say thank you to all of you for having prayed and have wept with us, have signed petitions and have called your government officials. Thank you for having stood with our family during this difficult journey”.
President Obama called her personally, to celebrate the release of her husband.
Pastor Greg Laurie also rejoiced following Saeed’s release. “It did not happen as quickly as we had hoped, but it happened in God’s perfect timing.” Laurie exhorted all Christians to continue praying for Pastor Saeed and his family as they recoup and restore.
Naghmeh thanked all her supporters, especially Jesus: “Than you, Jesus, for being with us during the difficulties of life and bringing people who help us bear them.”
Our thanks for all our readers’ prayers!
