Pastor Yang Hua returned to his home in Guizhou province after completing a two-and-a half year jail term.
Leading up to his trial, prosecutors tortured him multiple times in an effort to extract a confession. While in prison, Yang contracted vasculitis and had to be hospitalized as he was unable to walk. He also contracted diabetes.
In spite of what he went through, his wife said Yang broke out into loud worship songs after his release, and that, “His faith remains resolute”.
