Worshipers gather in the house of Christian evangelist Zhang Aiguo, in a small village in the central Chinese province of Anhui.
For decades, Chinese people were told what to believe. Despite restrictions, thought control is a thing of the past, and people are flocking to religions new and old in an effort to fill the spiritual vacuum left by weakened communist ideology.
