Pastor Saeed Abedini has been in prison in Iran for over 300 days and has finally received medical treatment a private hospital in Tehran. During his incarceration, he has been subjected to beatings which have caused internal injuries.
For the first time since he was imprisoned, Pastor Saeed was examined by a physician in July and prescribed medication for injuries sustained from beatings by prison guards. On two past occasions, the 33-year-old believer had been taken to the local hospital only to be sent home without an examination or treatment for his injuries.
Pastor Saeed’s wife said, ‘Thank you to all of the individuals who have prayed, written letters, signed petitions, called government officials, run benefit races, tweeted, and shared Saeed’s story. Thank you to all the government officials from around the world who have stood for my husband. Iran has listened to your pleas.’
