Read Imprisoned Pastor's Torture-Related Internal Injuries Growing Worse at Religion Today.
There has been good and bad news regarding Pastor Abedini coming out of Iran. The good news is that his family has been able to visit him, their last reunion this past Monday. The bad news is that he is still bleeding internally.
"Unfortunately, Pastor Saeed's internal injuries are causing him increased pain. He has been suffering from internal bleeding -- the result of intense beatings he has sustained in prison for his faith. Iranian authorities recently allowed Pastor Saeed to be treated by a doctor at a local hospital, and since that time he has continued to take the medication he was prescribed. However, his pain has recently increased to the point that on one occasion, he fainted from the immense anguish."
