A special service of devotions and prayers will be held at Salam Christian Fellowship for Pastor Saeed Abedini who is detained and tortured in Iranian jails.
Abedini, an American citizen who has worked setting up churches in Iran for nearly a decade, was arrested in 2012 “on charges related to his religious beliefs,” according to the State Department. Abedini has been subjected to torture and was told that if he converts back to Islam, he would be set free.
