(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Tian, 74, is from a village in Jiaozhou City, Shandong Province. When he was young he worked as a stevedore. Later he developed illnesses on his legs and back. He had tried to seek treatment but his attempts were in vain.

His family was affected by his bad health situation. At that time, someone asked him to practice Falun Gong. Before he started practicing Falun Gong, the Communist regime began to persecute Falun Gong and Mr. Tian believed the regime's overwhelming propaganda.

One day in 2001 he found a red paper package. He opened it and found Falun Gong truth-clarification materials which clarified the "Self-immolation on Tiananmen Square" and the facts that the CCP slandered Falun Gong practitioners. Mr. Tian was shocked: actually Falun Gong was wronged. He witnessed the CCP's evilness. He realized that the CCP has never done anything good and today it is committing a monstrous crime. He thought in his heart that he could not be cheated by the CCP again, and decided to practice Falun Gong.

Another practitioner introduced him to the practice. As soon as he started practicing Falun Gong he began to shoulder the sacred mission of validating the Fa. Miraculously, the illnesses in his legs and back disappeared in the process of studying and validating the Fa. Having an illness-free body made him believe Dafa more firmly.

He went out to hang up banners and post truth-clarification materials together with a 66-year-old practitioner. From 2001 to 2003 these two old people went out daily at 3:00 p.m. and came back at midnight. Each time they went about 50 kilometers. They hung up the banners all over the nearby six counties and cities.

With his studying the Fa more with diligence and his validating the Fa, his family members have received good fortune. He owns a 300-square-meter building and in the past nobody wanted to rent it. Now, all of his apartments are rented. He uses the rental income to make truth-clarification materials so that more people can be saved.
