A supporter of the Abedini family, Joann Mizutani came up with an idea to duplicate the actions taken for Meriam Ibrahim for American Pastor Saeed Abedini. Next week is the final full week prior to the June 30th deadline for the current nuclear negotiations with Iran. The U.S. may never again have an opportunity to negotiate the release of Pastor Saeed and other Americans wrongfully detained, as we do now.
As you may recall, Ibrahim, a Sudanese woman was arrested for her Christian faith, sentenced to death and later released with the help of the US government after a massive civil rights outcry. A 2 day event took place that bombarded the phone lines of the White House and the State Department with fervent cries for the Christian woman’s released. The phone lines were so full, that the State Department even changed their recording to ask people to press a key if they were calling on Meriam’s behalf. Not long after, Meriam was released and eventually, with her husband and children, are living free in the US. This massive campaign of activism may have played a huge role in securing Meriam’s release. Let’s us do the same for our brother, Saeed whose enduring much physical and mental abuse to deny his faith in a notorious Iranian prison.
The other two Americans are U.S. Marine Amir Hekmati and U.S. reporter, Jason Rezaian.

One small voice cries out for the Persecuted Church. More than 100,000,000 Christians around the world are at risk of persecution. It has become one of the worst humanitarian crises on the planet, today! It is ”a crisis point in history” that can no longer be overlooked, or millions more will suffer! Sadly it’s a crisis that not enough people realize exists. Unfortunately the western media rarely reports the extreme persecution inflicted on our Christian brothers and sisters, worldwide. We are called by our God to stand up for all who are destitute, to remember the prisoners as if imprisoned ourselves and to be a VOICE for the persecuted Church! Join us, we CAN make a difference!
