Persecuted Pastor’s Kids Send Tear-Jerking Video Pleading for Obama’s Help

Saeed Abedini has been in an Iranian prison for more than two years. He’s been beaten and tortured, as the world watched and the church prayed.

Now, Abedini’s children, 7-year-old Rebekka and 6-year-old Jacob, are begging President Obama to put an end to their father’s misery.

“Dear President Obama, please help bring my daddy home,” they plead.

“I miss him so much. I don’t want to miss another birthday without him…” Rebekka says. “Why does our daddy need to be in prison for loving Jesus?”
