(Clearwisdom.net) My relatives dragged me to listen to Master's video Fa-lectures in May 1996. I had suffered a spinal cord injury at work in October 1981 and developed severe back pain. Until the spring of 1987, it hurt so much so that I could not move my back. Examined at a provincial hospital, a doctor said that my right kidney had gradually shut down, compressed by my crooked spine, and I ended up wearing a metal brace to hold my spine straight. In 1998 I developed a skin infection and had boils. Looking for possible treatment, several doctors recommended taking high doses of the traditional Chinese herbal medicine called Xihuangwan, where each dose (a full bowl of liquid medicine) costs 52 yuan. I had to take 12 doses per month to eliminate the condition. I took medicine for years, until 1991, when I was poisoned by the medicine, although Xihuangwan cured the skin infection. I had diarrhea all day, everyday. The boils came back when I stopped taking the medicine. I had to have infusions to treat the diarrhea and get more nutrition in addition to Xihuangwan. I was so sick, I hurt all the time, and I just wanted to to die.

Listening to Master's video lecture I fell sound asleep in less than two minutes. It was just like Master said in Lecture Two of Zhuan Falun, "A few individuals may fall asleep and wake up as soon as I finish my lecture."

The next day I went to a morning group practice and watched Master's lecture tape at night. On the fourth days at the group practice the coordinator asked me, "Do you believe in Dafa?" "Of course. Otherwise, I would not be here," I responded firmly. The coordinator continued, "If that is the case, next time, leave those two iron balls at home." The iron balls were my rehab tools, because my hands were stiff. I had been holding those two balls all the time for a long time because my hands were not flexible after the injury. I did not bring the balls on the fifth day. On the sixth day a miracle happened. While in high school, I had broken my left clavicle and fractured my shoulder blade, so I had been unable to raise my left arm over my shoulder for the past 25 years, not even when I practiced Falun Gong. That day, after I completed the first exercise and waited for the third to begin, a small golden circle flew toward me from the northeast and hit my left shoulder. At the time I did not know it was a Falun. I shifted a little, opened my eyes to check who did it, and wondered why others did not get it. I then realized that Master was there to purify my body.

Soon, I heard Master's recorded voice for exercise three: "Chong, Guan." I raised my left arm and was able to extend it above my shoulder. I was so excited that tears coursed down my cheeks. On the seventh day, the brace that I had worn for a dozen years felt too tight, and I took it off. I discovered that I could move my back without a problem. I was so grateful words cannot describe it.

On the eighth day I ran to my where I worked and told everyone, "I can raise my left arm above my shoulder, and my back pain disappeared after I practiced Falun Gong." Some of them were suspicious and joked, "We all knew that you were injured on the job. Did you come here to extort more out of your employer?" I said, "Everyone here knew I had had a problem with my left shoulder. Now the problem is gone." They were speechless and amazed by Dafa's power.

After October 1996, Dafa took center stage in the lives of my entire family. First thing in the morning we read or memorize the Fa and articles that include Zhuan Falun, Hong Yin, and the other lectures. Memorizing Dafa is a number one priority in my family.

Master reminds us repeatedly that Dafa practitioners should offer more people salivation. Master said:

"Everything in the world was established and created for the Fa-rectification, and Dafa disciples are the great figures of our time. Since ancient times the beings in all realms have waited in anticipation. Gather up and rescue the beings that you are to save! Have righteous thoughts and righteous actions, dissolve all hindrances, and spread the facts widely. Divine beings are among men." ("To the European Fa Conference in Stockholm" 2005)

I went grocery shopping in the morning in June 2000. An old man sat on the steps to the shop entrance. I greeted him, "How are you?" "I am fine, except for my legs. I can barely walk," complained the old man. I then told him to repeat, "Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!" to regain the energy in his legs. "Does this work?" "Try it yourself," I suggested. The old man repeated it three times, got serious, and asked me to write it down, so I did. Twenty minutes later, having completed my shopping, I went back to pick up my bike. The old men ran after me for about 25 yards. He caught up and said, "Thanks for all the advice! My legs are back to normal!" I told him, "If you want, please thank our Master."

I met a former neighbor on a bus two days before the 2005 Chinese New Year when I had just finished my New Year shopping. I helped him carry several of his shopping begs onto the bus. We sat together. I shared my cultivation experiences and explained how the CCP persecutes Dafa practitioners and why people need to quit the CCP. He quit after hearing what I had to say.

One weekend in 2007, I visited the administrator with whom I work. I told him about the goodness of Falun Gong and the CCP persecution and then asked him to quit the CCP. He said, "Before I make a decision, I need to ask you several questions." He brought up topics ranging from farmers who were paid to cultivate the land to the evildoing dictator Mao Zedong, evildoing former primary minister Zhou Enlai, and others. I responded to each, based on content from the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. He was shocked to learn how evil the CCP is and was more than happy to quit. Before I lef,t I gave him a copy of the Nine Commentaries and asked him to pass it on to his relatives once he finished reading. He promised he would.

In 2008, construction was going on in our area. During construction of the building's foundation, the water pipes were accidentally cut, and about 70 residents in our area could not get running water. We were the lucky ones who still had running water. I said to my practitioner wife, "Here is our chance to offer more people salvation. We open the door for everyone to come to get water, tell them the facts, and ask them to quit the CCP." We asked our children to send righteous thoughts. As the result, a few days later, a couple dozen people quit the CCP.

I recall that, at 6:30 a.m. on the twelfth month of the 2008 lunar year, after we completed the exercises, someone knocked on the door. I opened the door and saw about 20 police officers, one with a camcorder. The person in charge told me that someone had reported us to the police regarding distributing Dafa materials. I told the him firmly, "You should remember that Falun Dafa is good!" He threatened me, saying, "I am here to arrest and you still dare to say that?" "Telling you that Falun Dafa is good is my effort to save your life." The person with the camcorder said, "We'd better go; they are doing things to save more lives." They left empty-handed.

Our whole family has been involved in Fa-rectification and doing thethree things since the July 20, 1999, the onset of the persecution. We get up at 3:30 a.m. and practice the exercises, memorize the Fa, read Minghui/Clearwisdom articles online, and send righteous thoughts before 9:00 a.m. Then we go out to speak with people face to face. We send righteous thoughts at noon and study the Fa--two chapters from the Zhuan Falun. After 3:00 p.m., we go out again and talk to people, then we send righteous thoughts at 6:00 p.m. after we get home. We study Master's new articles and lectures after dinner. The family sends righteous thoughts eleven times per day.

I realize that it is truly a blessing that we got to know Dafa and to benefit from Dafa practice. We should do the three things well, offer more people salvation, and complete our mission.
