It will be a new year after two more weeks. My destiny let me obtain the Fa about two and a half years ago.

Although I knew about the Chinese Communist Party's brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners, I did not have the courage to participate in any Fa-rectification activities for a while. At the beginning of this year, I got rid of my attachment of fear for the first time and joined the Fa-rectification activity of reading the public announcement in front of the Chinese consulate at Fukuoka and Nagasaki. At first, because of my fear, my hands continuously shook when I held the microphone and my voice quivered as well. But my wish to rescue fellow practitioner gradually took over my whole heart and transformed it into strong righteous thoughts. My fear disappeared. After that, I could actively participate in all the Dafa activities such as passing out truth-clarifying materials on the street and practicing in the park and community center. I also started to attend the group Fa-study.

Since I started practicing Falun Gong, my health has gotten better and better. By attending the group Fa-study of Zhuan Falun and other Fa-rectification projects, I realized that my body was gradually being purified. Sometimes I felt a sudden pain in my wrist and it was hard to do any housework. Sometimes in the middle of the night my back would suddenly convulse and I could feel pain in my chest. These kinds of symptoms have occurred and disappeared repeatedly during the past two and a half years, but my health was better and better. It is just like what Master said,

"A chance to obtain the Law is hard to come by. When you feel worse, it means that, 'when something reaches the extreme it reverses,' and your whole body will be purified. It has to be completely purified. The root of your health problem has been plucked out now, and only that little bit of black qi is left, coming out on its own, so that you have a little hardship and go through some difficulty. If you didn't bear anything it really wouldn't work." (Zhuan Falun)

I attended the Tokyo Falun Dafa Experience Sharing Conference this August and I also attended the parade on August 26, with my eldest daughter and her two-year-old child. At the experience sharing conference on August 27, I gave a speech about my cultivation experience and my experience of participating in the Fa-rectification activities. I really did not expect to give my talk first, so I was very nervous. Although I had memorized my speech before the conference, I kept forgetting the middle part due to excessive nervousness. Although I had the original paper in my hands, I could not see anything but a blank page. As I stood on the platform quietly for a few seconds, I felt my anxiousness disappear, and then my mouth unexpectedly started to move and the words just came out automatically. I was very surprised, but at the same time I found myself again. I finished the speech smoothly. At that moment, I deeply realized that Master was compassionately strengthening me. I sincerely appreciate Master from my heart.

The Kumamoto City Memorial Ceremony started on October 11 and lasted for 11 days. During the ceremony period, we started to promote the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party in Kumamoto City and the outlying areas. Although the weather at that time was very hot, the new and veteran practitioners worked hard together to pass out the Nine Commentaries. After the city memorial ceremony ended, we went to Miyazaki, Kagoshima, Oita, Yamaguchi, Nagasaki, Saga, and other areas to promote the Nine Commentaries. During these Fa-rectification activities, we did not forget to study the Fa and do the exercises. We coordinated with each other and always put Dafa first. Every Thursday we have group Fa-study in the Huayuan City Community Center. In the beginning, I felt the atmosphere was a little uncomfortable, but now the atmosphere has become more and more harmonious. Also, we do regular group practice at the West Community Center and Baichuan Park.

On December 31, I will go to the Chinese Consulate in Fukuoka to attend the sending forth righteous thoughts activity with my eldest daughter and my granddaughter. I hope that the Chinese Communist Party's brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners will end as soon as possible. The Fa rectifies the human world. People in the world can practice Falun Dafa and welcome a good future.
