Dear Friends and Family in Jesus,
This is a very hard update for me to give.
Saeed's mom has been under constant threat and intimidation by the Iranian government as she has been following up on Saeed's case (clemency, hospital....) and now she is forced to leave Iran because of it and threat of being arrested. The government (magistrate) has now said that clemency is no longer an option and they will not allow Saeed to be treated at the hospital.
I am not shaken by this news. I know that God is in control and only Jesus (no government) will get all of the Glory for Saeed's release.
She had a very emotional goodbye with Saeed today and wept the entire time. Because of all of the stress she has been hospitalized again. She will be leaving Iran in a few days not knowing when she will return again. This is the fourth time she has been hospitalized.
1- Please pray for Saeed's mom and her health and her emotions as she has had to part with Saeed.
2- Please pray for me as it is difficult being cut off from Saeed and updates about him until January when Saeed's dad will hopefully get to visit him (only immediate family are allowed to visit and with his parents gone, that leaves no one left in Iran to visit Saeed).
3- Please pray for Saeed during this difficult time of no visitation. Please pray for his health and his miraculous release.
Saeed wanted you all to know that he can feel all of the prayers and it continues to give him great strength and encouragement as he stands for his faith in Jesus in prison.
Thank you all for your prayers.
God Bless you all
