A few months into his imprisonment in Iran three years ago, pastor Saeed Abedini had a dream that he was out of prison celebrating his daughter Rebecca’s 9th birthday. Rebecca turns 9 “in a few months,” according to his wife, Naghmeh Abedini, and she is now looking to God to move on behalf of her husband.
“He (Saeed) hopes that he will be here for Rebecca’s 9th birthday. He mentioned to his father that the first few months of his imprisonment he’d been in solitary and he had a dream that he was here when Rebecca was not much older. He thought she was maybe 9. He had a dream about that and he’s really hoping that he would be here before she turns 9. If he misses her 9th birthday, he would have missed four birthdays, pretty much half my kids’ lifetime,” said Naghmeh Abedini in a CBN news interview Thursday.
On Wednesday Naghmeh expressed her disappointment at the news that her husband and three other Americans would not be released as a part of President Barack Obama’s much criticized nuclear deal with Iran, but publicly noted that it “makes sense.”
“You know it makes sense. It’s something they (State Department) have been up front with me and the other families from the beginning — that he (Saeed) would not be part of the deal. They have said that. Every call I’ve had with State Department and the White House has been that,” said Naghmeh in an interview with CNN Wednesday, after listening to Obama explain to a reporter why the deal could not have included the release of the pastor and three other Americans being held in Iran.
