A Falun Gong practitioner from a village in Hebei Province firmly safeguards Dafa. Before he obtained Dafa, his health was poor, and he often quarreled with his wife. But after obtaining Dafa his health improved, and he led a happy and harmonious life. During the initial persecution against Falun Gong in 1999, he used the money he had saved for many years to go to Beijing to appeal. Consequently, he was detained for 14 days and has been destitute and homeless since then. On October 1, 2000, he once again went to Tiananmen Square to rectify Dafa. He was arrested, beaten and sent to prison. Despite the hardships, he is now traveling from place to place to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa.
