Episode 1: “Shining In The Darkness”


Yang Xiaohui is an orphan, a mother, and a pastor’s wife. She is also a Chinese Christian who was jailed for fifteen days because of her faith. How did she end up like this? Why is China imprisoning house church Christians? In this first episode, we meet Yang Xiaohui, and learn about the Chinese house church movement to which she belongs. Although the government pressures these house churches to register with authorities, Chinese house churches insist that Christ, not the Chinese Communist Party, is their only king. This is the backdrop upon which Yang Xiahui’s story takes place.
