Abedini threatened with more jail time over fruitful gospel witness in prison, wife says

TEHRAN, Iran (BP, TAB) — Naghmeh Abedini said Iranian authorities are threatening to extend the prison sentence of her jailed husband due to his witnessing to people about Jesus Christ everywhere he is detained.
Saeed Abedini, a U.S. citizen of Iranian descent, was sentenced in 2013 to eight years in prison for his involvement in Iran’s house church movement. He was arrested about two years ago during a trip to build an orphanage in the city of Rasht.
According to his wife, prison guards have told Saeed that unless he stops telling fellow prisoners about Christ they can and will increase his jail sentence.
“He got saved from such a dark [past],” Naghmeh said of her husband, a former Muslim. “At his conversion Jesus saved him in such a radical way that he can’t deny Christ and he can’t stop sharing his faith. It’s in his DNA.”
