  1. I’m very sad to hear that. Thanks for the information. I pray his ministry will grow exponentially while he is there.

    1. I join your prayer. May he, like Joseph jailed unjustly, be immersed in God’s steadfast love. We pray for his release in God’s good time, and we pray that it may be soon for Saeed’s sake, but for the sake of Christ we pray that he may have courage, live in hope, and be God’s blessing and message wherever he is.
