ChinaAid can confirm the temporary freedom of Uyghur Christian house church leader Alimujiang Yimiti from his 15-year jail sentence.
We don't have many more details just yet.
But all of us at ChinaAid are so thankful for your steadfast commitment to see Alumijiang freed ever since our brave brother in Christ was sentenced on August 6th, 2009 for "spreading Christianity among the Uyghurs and distributing religious propaganda materials to increase the number of Christians."
Over the last 15 years, your voice joined tens of thousands of people across the world who signed up to support ChinaAid's FreeAlim campaign. Your support helped build a coalition of concerned organizations to petition for Alim's release at some of the highest political levels across the globe.
Your partnership with ChinaAid also helped directly support Alimujiang's family for the duration of his sentence.
Thank you so much for your prayers that truly gave Alimujiang strength while he was behind bars. Your prayers also brought so comfort to his wife Gulinuer and the couple's two children during such a terrible time.
Please continue to keep Alim and his entire family in your prayers.
