“Today has been the most emotional day yet!” said Bethany, an American teen on a 10-day trip to Southeast Asia. She and seven other teens were part of a Christian reality show called Underground Reality: Vietnam™. The show’s crew was filming ordinary kids and their encounters with secret Christians in communist Vietnam.
The kids visited with underground (secret) Christians at a Bible school, at a hidden youth camp, and at underground church services. On Bethany’s “most emotional day,” they met a Vietnamese girl whose father was in prison.
