  • Sharpen shears, hone your blades.

  • Sharpen shears, hone your blades.

  • Buy hair braids!

  • Hey, come here. (Okay. Okay.)

  • Did you see?

  • Those are the people I told you about who believe in Almighty God,

  • church leaders go there for gatherings frequently.

  • Our task from Mr. Liu

  • is to figure out how many of them come here often,

  • so we can catch them as soon as the time is right.

  • Okay, Mr. Hou!

  • And we need to find a chance to put a bug in their house.

  • Got it!

  • Hey, Mr. Hou.

  • I've been interning at the bureau for over 2 months.

  • There aren't any other cases aside from stakeouts,

  • tailing people, and arresting religious folks.

  • It stands to reason that as police officers,

  • our job is to go arrest criminals.

  • But those people are not breaking the law or committing crimes.

  • I mean doesn't it seem kind of immoral

  • to keep arresting those Christians? (Enough!)

  • What a waste of breath!

  • Everyone knows they're good people,

  • but do you want a job or not?

  • I do!

  • You want a paycheck?

  • Yeah!

  • If you want the CCP to take care of you,

  • be willing to do anything! (Right!)

  • Yes, Mr. Hou, you're very right.

  • I really need to take a page out of your book.

  • You are just too young. (Yes, yes, I am.)

  • The central government issued a strict order

  • to completely eliminate religious belief,

  • particularly The Church of Almighty God.

  • They are all considered political criminals

  • and wanted persons by the CCP.

  • If an upper leader can be caught,

  • think of the benefits, think of the promotion. (Oh!)

  • Yes, I got it, Mr. Hou!

  • If we can get several of them,

  • then we might just hit it big!

  • I get it, Mr. Hou, I get it!

  • Fine.

  • Go set up over there.

  • Okay, Mr. Hou.

  • Stay alert.

  • Of course!

  • Buy hair braids!

  • Hey hey, honey.

  • Yes!

  • I'll go out and get some food for our gathering today.

  • Okay, great.

  • Grandma, I want to go with you.

  • Lingling, stay here.

  • Go out and play after you've finished your homework. Good girl!

  • Okay. (Sharpen shears,)

  • hone your blades.

  • Honey, should we get our knife sharpened? (Sure.)

  • You go ahead. I'll go shopping.

  • Okay.

  • Buy hair braids!

  • Buy old phones!

  • Sharpen shears, hone your blades.

  • Here's the knife.

  • Hello, sir. (Here you go.)

  • Please sharpen this for me. (Oh.)

  • That's a nice knife.

  • Sir.

  • Yes. (How many people are in your family?)

  • Oh, there are three, my wife, granddaughter and me here now.

  • Ah, your children aren't at home?

  • They well, they left for work.

  • I just saw your wife go out shopping.

  • Are you having guests over later? (Hey.)

  • Huh? Why are you back so fast?

  • I just forgot my wallet. (Oh, hey.)

  • Here, come on, let's go inside. (Okay.)

  • Just now as I was going out,

  • there was this guy buying braids who was acting really furtive,

  • he was following me.

  • Hey, now that you mention it,

  • that knife guy was asking a lot of questions about us.

  • Those two seem really suspicious.

  • Could they be CCP spies?

  • The CCP will do anything they can to arrest Christians!

  • We have to be careful.

  • Our brothers and sisters will be here soon.

  • I know, what are we going to do?

  • Don't panic.

  • Honey, do youdo you remember God's words?

  • Which ones?

  • Also,

  • Amen!

  • We have to rely on God in this.

  • Let's try to get to the bottom of this, okay?

  • Great.

  • First I'll go pick up the food. (Okay.)

  • Let's go. (Alright.)

  • Hello, (Oh, hello sir.)

  • how are things with the knife?

  • Yeah, it's done. Here it is.

  • Young man, (Oh!)

  • what's your last name?

  • It's Hou!

  • Hou?

  • But you look so young.

  • Why are you doing this work?

  • You'd earn more doing just about anything else.

  • Oh, I'm an independent entrepreneur.

  • I'm used to the freedom. I like the freedom.

  • Honey, I'm back. (Okay.)

  • Ah, hey, have a good day, sir! (Thank you, you too.)

  • Buy hair braids!

  • So?

  • Mr. Hou, that lady went out to buy vegetables.

  • Vegetables? (Yeah.)

  • Then there will definitely be guests.

  • Keep a close watch. (Got it.)

  • Honey, this does not look good at all.

  • Those two are together!

  • Yeah, and I noticed that the knife sharpener's hands were smooth,

  • I don't think it's his real job.

  • It's suspicious.

  • It looks like

  • the CCP spies really have their eyes on us. (It does.)

  • Our brothers and sisters will be here soon.

  • What should we do?

  • Grandma, (Yes?)

  • I'm done with my homework, I'm going out to play.

  • Lingling, (Yeah?)

  • I need you to do something. It counts as a duty.

  • What is it?

  • Protect your aunt and uncle!

  • Protect them?

  • Listen to me,

  • go quickly to Aunt Chen's house

  • and tell her that the police are here and that they are watching us,

  • that they absolutely cannot come and gather here today.

  • Do you understand?

  • Grandma, I'm afraid!

  • Lingling, don't be afraid. We have God with us!

  • Lingling, you're big now.

  • You have to lean on God and do your duty, alright?

  • Hmm, yeah, I can't let the police get my aunt and uncle!

  • Good girl! Hurry up! (Good girl!)

  • Be careful! (Okay.)

  • Be safe! (Got it!)

  • Mr. Hou, their little girl just left.

  • Stupid little girl, don't pay attention to her.

  • Mr. Hou, those two seem like they are really on guard.

  • I can't get close to them.

  • I won't be able to get the bug in there.

  • Watch it!

  • Boss! (Meathead!)

  • Sorry, sorry!

  • Now we're with the government,

  • we have real status!

  • Look alert!

  • Head up! Back straight! Belly in!

  • Meathead!

  • I'm used to that.

  • Sir,

  • helping the government catch believers in Almighty God

  • is the fast track for promotion!

  • Wow, wearing blue really means something, huh?

  • Obviously!

  • Having this uniform on is a really big deal!

  • What kind of big deal?

  • Let me put it this way.

  • We used to take things from others.

  • When you're not seen, it's stealing.

  • When you are seen, it's looting.

  • But when I'm wearing this,

  • I'm just doing my civic duty.

  • It's right and proper.

  • Buy hair braids, buy old phones!

  • Hey, I'll teach you something today.
