Saeed Sends Easter Message from Hospital Bed

Ad Feedback

Pastor Saeed Abedini sent an Easter message from his hospital bed in Iran, where he's serving an eight-year sentence for his faith.

The American pastor was visiting Iran to start an orphanage when the Islamic regime arrested and sentenced him to prison.

He was recently transferred to an Iranian hospital to be treated for injuries he has suffered while incarcerated.

"Sometimes we want to experience the glory and resurrection with Jesus without experiencing death with Him," Abedini wrote. "We do not realize that unless we pass through the path of death with Christ, we are not able to experience resurrection with Christ."

Abedini signed the message from a "prisoner of darkness in Iran, but free for the kingdom and light."

Abedini's wife, Naghmeh, recently said he's doing better now that he's getting some medical treatment. He's finally being given decent meals and pain medication, but still needs surgery.
