In mid-March, dark, painful lesions appeared on Yang Hua’s legs and continued to spread. Prison doctors gave him painkillers but offered no treatment.
A week later, his lawyers managed to have him admitted to a private hospital, where he was diagnosed with anaphylactoid purpura, a condition that causes inflammation of blood vessels and can affect the kidneys, intestines, joints and skin.
Yang Hua’s lawyers have filed a request for medical bail so that he can be released from prison during treatment and recovery.
Yang Hua is co-pastor of a 700-member church in Guiyang, China. He has been detained since December 2015 on charges of divulging state secrets.

- Pray for Yang’s recovery. May he be shown compassion by the authorities and receive the treatment he requires and the time needed to recover.
- Ask the Lord to relieve Yang from pain and give him the physical, emotional and spiritual strength he needs.
- Pray for those who are supporting Yang – his family, his church and legal representatives. Pray Yang will soon be reunited with them.
