The wife of the American pastor imprisoned in Iran for his Christian faith says her husband remains bold in Jesus Christ while in prison.

Saeed AbediniSaeed Abedini‘s wife, Naghmeh, recently spoke to students at Liberty University about her family’s plight.

Naghmeh said Saeed has been tortured and asked to deny his faith in Christ and return to Islam, but he has remained a light for Jesus in Evin Prison, one of the worst in the world.

“They’ve told him many times that they would free him and allow him to return to our family, the kids and I, if he would deny his Christian faith, and he’s stood strong in that prison. He’s led many, many – over 30 people – to Christ in that prison,” she told the audience.
