Elderly Farmer and Eighty-two Family Members Express Their Gratitude to Master Li
(Clearwisdom.net) My name is Zhang Jiumei (female). I am eighty-two years old. May 13 was Master's birthday and World Falun Dafa Day. Eighty-two of my family members want to express their sincere gratitude to Master, wishing Him a Happy Birthday. Happy Birthday Master!
I had been bed-ridden for eighteen years due to a stroke. Three years ago, my youngest son had a stroke and suddenly passed away. My family became very sad and depressed. At that time, a relative of mine who was practicing Falun Gong came to visit us. He told us, "If you say 'Falun Dafa is good, Zhen-Shan-Ren is good,' you will receive a blessed reward."
Not only did my family receive a blessed reward, but also all of my relatives and their relatives. In addition, my daughter-in-law, granddaughter-in-law, and great grandson all started practicing Falun Gong. Now I will explain the blessed reward that I received from Master.
When I was young, I frequently suffered from TMJ (temporomandibular joint) dysfunction. When it occurred, my jaw bone would suddenly slip out of joint causing me unbearable pain. At those times, my son would rush to the local hospital and ask one of the doctors on duty to come to our home to adjust my jaw. When he was unable to find an available doctor, I could do nothing but howl in pain.
Sometimes these dislocations took place while I was yawning, sneezing, coughing, sleeping, or even when I opened my mouth wider than usual, like when I was eating. When the dislocations started occurring several times a day, my son was forced to quit his job in order to look after me.
In addition, the doctors who had been treating me started becoming impatient with my condition and eventually refused to come to my home. My son was left with no choice but to try to duplicate the steps that the doctors took when they adjusted my jaw. After a short while, he became very proficient at it, making us both very happy. Without my son's help, it would have been impossible for me to cope all these years. But then the unexpected happened in the autumn of 2006: my son suddenly passed away. It was truly like the sky had fallen!
Not long after that while my family was in the middle of dinner I dislocated my jaw, again. My grandson put down his bowl and went out to find a doctor. But the doctor he brought back with him was not trained in dealing with TMJ problems, so whenever he pushed here or there, I cried out in pain. When I thought of my son, who had just passed away I cried and cried. The whole family was so sad that they could not finish their meal.
My grandson had no other choice but to jump on his motorcycle and look for another doctor. This time, he brought home an orthopedic doctor who easily adjusted my jaw. The doctor wrapped my chin with gauze and told me that I needed to be careful. Then my grandson drove the doctor back to where he came from.
But before my grandson returned, I yawned and my jaw became dislocated again. When I heard the pouring rain outside, I became very desperate. I wondered when this nightmare that I was living would end. I truly felt that I would rather die than go on. I sobbed and sobbed. When my daughter-in-law saw me, she started crying, too.
As fate would have it, a relative of ours who practiced Falun Gong came to see me. When he saw my condition, he said, "So far you have not been able to find a way to prevent these dislocations from occurring, right? I'm telling you, only my Master can help you. All of you repeat after me, 'Falun Dafa is good, Zhen-Shan-Ren is good.' My Master will definitely take care of you."
Then he started saying the words out loud and we all repeated after him. Since I could not open my mouth to speak, I said the words in my heart. After repeating the words "Zhen-Shan-Ren is good" about a dozen times, suddenly I heard a sound "Kada!" and my jaw automatically slipped into place. I was so surprised! I told everyone, "I am OK!" My daughter-in-law looked at me with surprise and said, "It is a miracle! It is like magic!"
For many years now, the tendons in my arm, wrist, fingers, leg, ankle, and my toe were all deformed. The muscles of my four limbs had atrophied making it very difficult to move. In addition, I also had a language disability. When my jaw was dislocated, I could not close my mouth; I could only howl in pain. So when I said clearly "I am OK!" my daughter-in-law was so surprised.
My Falun Gong relative was very happy, too, "Thank you Master! Thank you Master! My Master has already started taking care of you. Every day you must repeat the words, 'Zhen-Shan-Ren is good.' If you do this, you will not have any more problems with your jaw."
From that day on, I repeated the words, "Zhen-Shan-Ren is good" and the TMJ problem that I suffered with for most of my life was miraculously healed. In addition, I was able to stretch my arm, leg, foot, and, hand, meaning, I could move my previously paralyzed limbs!
In spring, 2007, I was able to walk around in the yard while holding a chair. Now every morning I do the sitting meditation in the full lotus position. For nearly three years, I have not taken any medication of any kind, thus saving almost 10,000 yuan. In addition, I am able to think and speak clearly, too.
When my family members came to visit me, they all said that I looked strong and had a healthy complexion. When they looked at my rosy cheeks, they could not find a wrinkle. I certainly don't look like I am in my eighties nor do I look as if I had been bed-ridden and paralyzed for eighteen years. I told everyone, "'Zhen-Shan-Ren is good.' Whoever speaks these words will receive a blessed reward!" They all believe me now.
It was you, Master, who rescued my entire family from a very desperate situation. I could never return your kindness and grace. I will tell everyone who comes to visit me the truth about Dafa.
This year, around the Chinese New Year, two of my granddaughters-in-law came to visit me. Among my eighty-two relatives, all of them now know the truth. My Falun Gong relative also helped everyone quit the Chinese Communist Party, guaranteeing them a blessed future.
If my family and I were to talk non-stop for three days about the blessed rewards that we all received from Dafa, we would not be able to finish our amazing story.
Master, tomorrow is your fifty-eighth birthday. It is also World Falun Dafa Day. Today we gathered together to discuss how we would express our birthday greetings to you. Everyone thought that we could best express them by sharing our magical story with, you, Master. They suggested that I start first, so I have.
Again, I thank merciful Master! Again, I wish Master Happy Birthday!
