The longer Iranian authorities keep Pastor Saeed Abedini in prison, the more people will be exposed to the Gospel, argued his wife Naghmeh Abedini before Franklin Graham’s Samaritan’s Purse ministries last week.
“They (The Iranian authorities) don’t realize that the longer they keep him, the more people are hearing about the Gospel,” Abedini said while addressing an audience at Samaritan’s Purse headquarters in Boone, N.C.
The religious freedom activist has been campaigning in the past year on behalf of her husband, who was sentenced to eight years in prison in Tehran earlier this year. His punishment is tied to his Christian faith, according to the American Center for Law and Justice, which represents Naghmeh and her two children in America.
Naghmeh shared her testimony of faith before the audience, including how her family became Christians, and talked about the opportunities she has received to tell the world about Christ through her husband’s ordeal.
“The way we lived our life, we didn’t really have a ministry, we didn’t have any direction,” Abedini said about life before Saeed’s arrest in Iran in September 2012.
