Muslims on the Far Side of China turning to Jesus

The following testimony is from a Uyghur brother in far northwestern China who grew up as a conservative Muslim:

"After I married, I was crippled in an accident. I couldn't move and my legs were in constant pain. A friend gave me a Bible, and I began reading it. When I reached the place where Jesus healed the paralytic I began crying and asking God to heal me. I fell asleep with the Bible on my chest and dreamed that a radiantly white man approached me. He reached out His hand and said 'Get up and walk.' When I woke, my legs were healed! That encounter with Jesus has transformed my life. Now I live for Him alone."

Thank the Lord for His marvelous grace. Pray that many other Uyghur Turks will have supernatural encounters with Christ and become his disciples. We are told there have been several recent baptisms.

Ask for God's blessing on Christian radio broadcasts and other media reaching China's Xinjiang province. Pray that many Muslim Uighur Turks in this predominantly Turkish district will tum to Christ as a result of these programs.

Also, please continue to pray for Alimjan, a Uighur brother in Xinjiang sentenced to 15 years in prison because of his faithful witness. He faces harsh conditions daily. Please also uphold his wife Gulnur and their two children, who are constantly monitored by the state.
