NOTE: Above are excerpts from a letter American Christian Pastor Saeed Abedini wrote from prison in Iran.
Tomorrow, we will take time to focus on an American Christian Pastor - Saeed Abedini - who is imprisoned for his faith in Jesus Christ in Iran's notorious "Evin Prison." September 26 will be one year since Pastor Saeed was arrested and put in prison while in Iran. Our morning worship service will focus on the need to pray for him, and countless others like him around the world who are suffering persecution for the name of Jesus. Our own Cassy C. has been in contact with Pastor Saeed's wife, and she will be sharing a special testimony with us. A special prayer vigil will be held Thursday, September 26, at the Missouri State Capitol to pray for Pastor Saeed.
Jonathan Shinkle will be with us to lead in music. Bro. Stan is away on a trip. We look forward to Jonathan leading us in worship through song, and I will be bringing a message on "God's Presence in Persecution," from Matthew 10. I look forward to seeing you to worship the Lord Jesus!
