If you have not heard the news, Pastor Saeed Abedini, who has been imprisoned in Iran’s notorious Evin prison since July 2012, has been moved to the most dangerous cell block in that prison. This is the place where prisoners are moved to before they disappear…he had been moved a half hour away to Karaj. Please keep this family in your prayers, for Saeed to continue his mission of evangelizing those he is incarcerated with and for Naghmeh to carry on, on his behalf, raising their children on fighting for his release. We are called to pray for our brothers and sisters who are being persecuted and help in whatsoever capacity to lighten the burden for them.

Mission News Network reporting:

Iranian/American pastor is facing some troubling days ahead. According to the American Center of Law and Justice, Pastor Saeed Abedini, a U.S. citizen imprisoned in Iran because of his Christian faith, is being moved from Evin Prison in Tehran to Rajai Shahr Prison in Karaj, which is even more dangerous.

According to the ACJL, Pastor Saeed faces life-threatening conditions and treatment there.

President of Open Doors USA David Curry says while this looks bleak, there is good news. „From that fact, we can gather that the Iranians are listening and paying attention to the advocacy from the United States.”

The ACLJ reports Pastor Saeed’s family members went to visit him at Evin Prison Monday, only to be notified that he had been moved a half hour away to Karaj.

The transfer comes as Iranians took to the streets to mark the anniversary of the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Iran in 1979. The protests are a bit surprising, especially since many young people are disenfranchised with the current radical Islamic government.

Curry agrees. „There’s a growing need there and a growing desire amongst these younger generations in Iran and other Middle Eastern countries to see freedom come. That’s certainly what we’re praying for.”

In 2005, Loes Bijnen, a Dutch Diplomat from the embassy in Tehran, described Rajai Shahr prison:
„Rajai Shahr is the place where political prisoners who are seen as a nuisance, are stowed away. Going to Karaj is a severe punishment. Once in there, one stops to be a human being. One is put out of sight, even of human rights activists and the press. In Rajaï Shahr, political prisoners have to share cells with dangerous criminals like murderers, rapists, and drug addicts who don’t hesitate to attack their cell mates. They have nothing to lose: many of them are condemned to death anyway. Murders or unexplained deaths are a regular occurrence.”

Curry is encouraging you to pray for Pastor Saeed and other Christians in the same situation. „There are 100 million people in countries around the world living in fear for the faith. Not because they’re bad people, but because they call themselves believers. The western world is the exception.”

ENGLISH:

URGENT ACTION NEEDED: Pastor Saeed’s life is in grave danger. He has been transferred to a deadly cell block in one of Iran’s most obscure prisons—a prison where people are sent to disappear, he had been moved a half hour away to Karaj. Saeed Abedini has been held in prison since July 2012. (Read more about his case at the links below).

FROM ACLJ.org: Pastor Saeed’s life is in danger. He has been transferred to a deadly cell block in one of Iran’s most dangerous and obscure prisons. He is no longer sharing a cell with political prisoners but with murderers. Rajai Shahr Prison is where prisoners are sent to disappear – many are murdered at the hands of other prisoners.

PRAY that God gives Saeed the same courage He has thus far given him to withstand great bodily harm and the fortitude and faith to live under a death sentence daily, in Evin prison, one of the most notorious prisons in Iran.
