Christian News Network reports:
An American pastor who was imprisoned in Iran for over three years and was among four U.S. citizens released on Saturday in a prisoner swap has now landed on American soil.
Saeed Abedini flew into North Carolina on Thursday afternoon, where he met his parents at the Billy Graham Training Center in Asheville. His mother immediately burst into tears upon seeing her son walk off the plane.
Franklin Graham also was present for the reunion, and was embraced by Abedini, who was all smiles. “We’re so glad your back,” Graham told Abedini.
