While spending one year homeless to avoid persecution, I encountered many admirable practitioners who quietly yet resolutely walk their paths of Fa-rectification.

They greatly encouraged me to be more steadfast in cultivation.

1. On meeting fellow practitioner Chen, the first thing she said to me was, "If not for the protection of our merciful Master, we would not have met tonight." She told me, "When I rode my bike through an intersection on my way home, a motorcycle came out of nowhere and raced toward me. We collided straight on. After a loud 'bang', I fell to the ground. All the bystanders thought I must be dead. At that moment, I couldn't move my limbs, and the voices around me were very faint. In my heart I told myself, 'Everything will be fine, as I am a cultivator. I will eliminate all the tribulations forced upon me by the old forces, because I am a Fa-rectification period Dafa disciple.' Although the motorcyclist wore a helmet, it took him a while to regain consciousness. He walked over and suggested that he take me to a hospital. I motioned to him that after a short rest everything would be fine. After a few moments I regained my speech, and I knew that this incident could not have been a coincidence. We must have some kind of predestined relationship, so I had to clarify the facts of Falun Gong to him. The motorcycle rider again insisted that he take me to the hospital, and I said, 'Everything is fine, and I don't need to go to the hospital. I am a Falun Gong practitioner. This is actually a stroke of luck. Do you know Falun Gong?' He replied, 'I do. My family received truth clarification literature, but I've never read it.' I told him, 'That's a shame. Falun Gong teaches people to exercise compassion. You know the severity of today's accident, but I won't take your money or compensation. Our Master teaches us to consider others at all times. I only want you to bear in mind the words of Zhen, Shan, Ren (Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance), and that Falun Dafa is good. Dafa practitioners are all kind people, and the reports on television are just trying to frame us.' He answered, 'Yes, I will keep this in mind. Thank you.' In the end, he offered to pay for the repairs of my bicycle, and I gratefully declined."

I was very touched by the actions of this fellow practitioner. Not only did she think of others during the accident, she even looked inward to search for her own shortcomings. She felt some fear, as she didn't clarify the facts to all the bystanders present. I saw that a large part of her knee was bruised. Her bicycle couldn't even be pushed, but somehow, it worked well upon riding. All practitioners present knew that Master had helped us. Around 11 p.m. that same night, Chen and a few other practitioners left to post truth-clarification literature in far away villages, not returning until 3 a.m.

2. Another practitioner obtained the Fa in 1996. She used to suffer from chronic rheumatism that required her to take a large quantity of medication, and she couldn't work. The incurable disease plagued her for many years, and she felt she no longer wanted to live. After she obtained Dafa however, all of her illnesses disappeared. When others witnessed her changes, they too started to learn Dafa. Her husband is also quite supportive of her truth spreading activities. After the persecution started, she steadfastly walked her path of Fa-rectification. Everywhere she went she diligently pasted truth-clarification literature, clarified the facts to the people, and distributed Dafa flyers. From her 600 Yuan monthly salary, she keeps only 50-100 Yuan to live, and the rest she saves to make truth-clarification literature to save sentient beings.

3. A third fellow practitioner knew nothing about computers, but she also aspired to learn how to use the computer to make truth-clarification literature. Every afternoon under the blistering heat she went to the home of a distant practitioner to learn about computers. At first, her head ached every time she sat in front of a computer, but she resolved to keep learning. I am very touched by her commitment and dedication.
