  • Where'd you get the Bible?

  • Dammit!

  • Stop hitting him! Why are you doing this?

  • Yeah! We haven't broken any laws.

  • You all behave!

  • Dammit!

  • Why are you beating him?

  • Why? Because you're believers!

  • That's what I do with believers.

  • What about the law?

  • Don't cause trouble!

  • What are you looking at?

  • That's what we do with you believers.

  • You'd better behave!

  • You want to believe?

  • How dare you believe

  • in a foreign religion!

  • A foreign religion!

  • Your mom went to borrow money.

  • Lord Jesus, please have mercy on me and be with me

  • In 1988 when I was 13 years old,

  • I was detained in a raid on a fellowship gathering in the Xiaowei Village.

  • I endured one day and two nights in a dark little room, filled with fear.

  • Back then,

  • people were always getting arrested, paraded in the streets,

  • and sentenced to hard labor for gathering together and sharing the gospel.

  • I didn't understand.

  • We wanted to be good people and take the right path,

  • so why was the government persecuting us?

  • Why did the Communist Party hate us so much for our beliefs?

  • Those were the questions in my young and tender heart.

  • Excuse me, coming through.

  • Excuse me.

  • Coming through.

  • Careful there.

  • It was so crowded, I could hardly get through.

  • Still gazing out?

  • We're almost home.

  • Patience, there's still a way to go.

  • We're nearly there!

  • She can't wait.

  • This is Chenxi's first big trip. She's definitely been homesick.

  • Of course. It's been almost two months!

  • - Yeah. - Yes.

  • Time flies.

  • Do you think this counts as a triumphant return?

  • - Definitely. - Of course.

  • Yeah.

  • That's right. We've learned so much.

  • Everyone's going to be overjoyed to hear this news.

  • For sure.

  • Mom, Dad.

  • Chenhui!

  • You're back!

  • Where are Mom and Dad?

  • Getting ready for a gathering.

  • What've you got in there?

  • You'll know soon enough.

  • You certainly look pleased.

  • Mom, I'm back.

  • Mom.

  • You must be frozen!

  • No.

  • How about the Northeast?

  • It was freezing!

  • Chenxi, it's great to see you.

  • Hi Xinyue!

  • You've learned a lot from all those sermons, right?

  • I've brought some good news back for everyone.

  • - Good news? - What is it?

  • Come on, over here!

  • - C'mon, c'mon. - What did you bring us?

  • Oh, that girl.

  • You're so excited, what is it?

  • Yeah, tell us.

  • What?

  • Look!

  • The Words of the Holy Spirit!

  • The Holy Spirit has spoken!

  • - The Holy Spirit has spoken! - Here, let's read it.

  • - Everyone have a seat. - Sit down.

  • In 1991, we heard the Holy Spirit's words in a house church.

  • Everyone was overjoyed and couldn't wait to share the news.

  • A chapter of the Holy Spirit's words came out every day or so in a steady stream.

  • God's words revealed many truths about faith in Him and mysteries of the Bible,

  • and gave us the path for practicing the truth and entering into life.

  • Reading God's words every day felt so nourishing.

  • We were all constantly immersed in a state of joy.

  • However, six months later, the Communist Party's persecution found us once more.

  • My parents and my brother were all arrested.

  • Where'd these books come from?

  • Where were they printed?

  • No one's talking, huh?

  • What about you?

  • I don't know.

  • You organize the gatherings, right?

  • Tell me where those books came from.

  • I don't know.

  • Dad!

  • - Don't hit him! - Why are you hitting my dad?

  • Stop, he's not well. Stop hitting him!

  • Dad!

  • Stop it!

  • Don't move!

  • He's not well, stop it! Stop hitting him!

  • Dad! …

  • Stop hitting him!

  • Don't hit him?

  • Alright then.

  • A 600 yuan fine?

  • The police took our tape recorder as collateral.

  • They told me to go borrow money for the fine.

  • What lowlifes!

  • Where can we borrow that much money?

  • You can leave now.

  • We've got to keep arresting and fining those believers.

  • We still need to look into the issue of these books.

  • Yes, sir.

  • Dad.

  • Dad, have some egg soup.

  • Chenxi,

  • your things are packed.

  • The police have been investigating the source of the books.

  • Stay at Xinyue's place for the next few days,

  • then come back when this has blown over.

  • Be careful on your way there.

  • What on earth?

  • What are you doing?

  • - Mom! Mom! - Behave!

  • - What is this? - Don't move!

  • Stay still!

  • Where'd you get these books? Where were they printed?

  • Tell us!

  • Captain.

  • Sit!

  • Li Chenxi,

  • you've got some guts for someone so young.

  • You had some nerve sending out these Christian books.

  • Did you know that our government has been cracking down hard on house churches?

  • You people dare print religious materials in secret and distribute them?

  • Do you know what kind of crime that is?

  • You're disseminating cult literature and cult propaganda,

  • trying to overthrow our national government.

  • You could get 10 to 20 years for that alone.

  • Tell us what you know.

  • Where did these books come from?

  • Confess!

  • If you don't confess, you'll be in even more trouble.

  • My faith is not a crime.

  • I have nothing to confess.

  • You're a hard nut to crack.

  • You really drank the Kool-Aid, hm?

  • Talk!

  • You're just 17.

  • We'd hate to see you given hard labor.

  • As long as you tell us everything you know,

  • we'll send you right back home.

  • How about it?

  • As believers, we try to be good people on the right path and we read God's words.

  • Why won't the government just let us be?

  • Why do you persecute us?

  • You silly little girl.

  • What do you know?

  • In China, anything the Communist Party opposes is illegal.

  • Got it?

  • You won't believe in the Party, but insist on believing in your God,

  • spreading your gospel everywhere.

  • More people believe in God and fewer follow the Party.

  • We have to stop you, wipe you all out.

  • That's the Party's policy, its law.

  • Clear on that?

  • Talk! Fess up!

  • You'll be sorry if you don't!

  • You, you, come with me.

  • Move it!

  • Come on!

  • Get in there! Hurry up!

  • Dad!

  • Chenxi! Chenxi!

  • Get back here.

  • If you still don't want to talk, we'll get your dad to talk.

  • Dad!

  • You stay here.

  • This has nothing to do with my dad. Why are you beating him?

  • Nothing to do with him?

  • Tell us!

  • Where'd your daughter get those books?

  • Where were they printed?

  • Dammit!

  • Dad!

  • Stop hitting him!

  • Dad! …

  • Can you take it?

  • You shit!

  • Step aside.

  • Dad! …

  • Tell us!

  • Dad!

  • Will you talk or what?

  • Talk!

  • Tell us!

  • Here, stop crying.

  • Don't cry.

  • The Communist Party is awful.

  • This little girl just believes in God.

  • She's done nothing wrong

  • but they beat her dad right in front of her.
