Dear Pastor Saeed Abedini,
I am writing you so you know that there are people thinking, praying, and advocating for your immediate, permanent and unconditional release. No one should be imprisoned for their religious beliefs. Your courage and grace has inspired many. I pray daily for your release and safe keeping. You are a blessing from God to His people in Iran. God bless you and God bless the people of Iran.
