Again Wishing a Complete Success to the European Fa Conference

To the Dafa disciples attending the European Fa Conference,

Greetings! I hope that by attending the Fa conference you will be able to benefit, make improvements, and identify any shortcomings in clarifying the facts and saving sentient beings, thereby doing even better hereafter. I also hope that those students who have not been so diligent all along will be able to find where they fall short, step forward, and fulfill their historic missions. Time waits for no one!

Again, my best wishes to you all.
