Pastor Saeed “I was born again”
The ACLJ has released a video showing Pastor Saeed Abedini’s first conversation with the outside world. It features Jay Sekulow calling the pastor after he was released on Jan. 16 as part of a prisoner swap between the U.S. and Iran.
“I’m glad to hear your voice,” Sekulow said after Abedini answered. “I’ve not heard your voice.”
The pastor agreed, saying that he has been “waiting for that for so long,” later thanking Sekulow for his support. The American Center for Law & Justice has also helped Abedini’s wife, Naghmeh, throughout her very public battle to fight for her husband’s release.
“I’m doing great. Today was like my first day or my life, so … I was born again,” Abedini told Sekulow. “Being born again, again.”
