8. [Dalian City, Liaoning Province] Experiencing Dafa Practitioners Are One Body
Ever since the persecution against Dafa started, my wife and I, and my elder sister have shared experiences only among ourselves. Recently we felt that this is not a good situation. With my wife taking the lead, we came into contact with fellow Dafa practitioners in our area. Suddenly we found our world expanded greatly. All the practitioners are so nice, cordial and lively. I really experienced that we Dafa practitioners are one body.
At the same time, let Dafa practitioners in the Dalian area greet our great Teacher! Best wishes to all overseas fellow practitioners; let's work together to create the magnificent spring in which Fa shall be rectified.
9. [Linqing, Shandong Province] "This baby is coming to attain Dafa"
Recently, an extraordinary thing happened in Linqing, Shandong province: before a woman delivered her baby, she had a dream in which a baby knelt down in front of Teacher. She delivered her baby that same day. One of her relatives who is a Dafa practitioner came to congratulate her. Hearing this women's description, the practitioner said: "this child is coming to attain Dafa." Surprisingly, the three-day-old baby answered with a "Ya". Her mother was very happy. She already knew that Falun Dafa is good and she knew the miracles of Dafa. So She instantly promised to let the child learn Dafa. She insisted that the Dafa practitioner take 500 Yuan to prepare Dafa truth clarifying materials.
