Update! Prayer Vigil for Pastor Saeed

We will serve a light dinner @5pm in the courtyard at 5pm.

Please join us in prayer for Pastor Saeed on Friday, September 26th, in the courtyard after the dinner. Time: 6-8pm.

Pastor Saeed Abedini is an American pastor who is currently serving an eight year prison sentence in one of Iran's toughest prisons simply because of his faith in Jesus.

Since his arrest in September 2012, he has been beaten and tortured. Yet, in a letter to his wife, Naghmeh, he wrote, "... like the rats I can scream with joy within those prison walls and worship my Lord in joy and strength. The Joy of the Lord is my strength. Amen."We pray that he may continue to hold fast to the Lord and find joy and strength in Him while he remains in prison.

His wife and two children remain in the United States, so please pray for their comfort and peace as they wait on the Lord during this difficult time.
