Alimujiang Yimiti, a Uyghur house-church leader in China, has been detained since January 2008. In 2009 he was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for "instigating separatism and revealing state secrets to foreigners." The charge was based on two private conversations between Alim and an American friend, even though there was no evidence to suggest that sensitive information was discussed. Those close to the case have insisted on Alim’s complete innocence.
In November 2010, a high court accepted Alim’s appeal to have his case reviewed. In December, Alim’s wife and two lawyers prepared an appeal. The judge, however, informed them that the collegiate bench had already studied the case and made a decision (for more information, click here).
In this five-minute video, Alim’s wife describes seeing God at work despite being abandoned by family and other believers when her husband was arrested. Please watch this video, pray for Alim and his family, and share their story with your friends and family members.
