The Power of Dafa Displayed as Family of Practitioners is Unharmed in Flash Flood
Story One: Practitioner's Family and Property Survive a Flash Flood
I am a Dafa practitioner in Zhouqu County. Our family of three survived the huge August 7, 2010, mudslide disaster and witnessed the power of Dafa and Master's compassionate salvation.
It happened around 11:00 p.m., when many people were already asleep. As soon as I got into bed, I heard a roaring sound and thunder claps and noticed many lightning strikes. I didn't pay any attention to it and went back to bed. Suddenly I heard the sound of nearby glass breaking. I thought the wind was perhaps very strong and had broken the neighbors' windows. I got up and closed the windows in my apartment. Just then I heard people outside shouting, "A flood is coming!" Then I became aware of the sound of many helicopters in the air and immediately woke up my wife. "A flood is coming! Take the child! Hurry up and run!" My wife grabbed a few items of clothing for our child and put them on.
When we got to the apartment building's front door, the flood smashed a house behind our building. Four people were buried in it; only the son and the mother escaped. We moved immediately to the third floor. When we reached the third floor the mountainous torrent flooded the second floor. We jumped out through a window on the second floor hallway onto a ridge outside the building and ran quickly to higher ground outside.
When we arrived at a safe zone, I regretted very much not having taken a picture of Master and His articles with me. Images of Dafa materials drifting in the water recurred in my mind.
Early in the morning the next day, the flood still had not abated. The view from the front of the apartment shocked me. The flood had stopped at the windowsill of my apartment's kitchen. The mudslide was as high as the level of my apartment's windowsill. Not only did the water not go into my apartment, even the window screen was intact. Many Dafa materials were still on the table, about three meters away from the windowsill.
Master had not only saved the lives of my family, but also manifested the miraculous power of Dafa. I realized that Master was giving me another chance in order for me to fulfill my historic mission of rescuing people.
Story Two: Picking up Life
Uncle Zhou, who lives in the Shenhe District of Shenyang City, has a habit of always looking at the ground when he walks. When he sees things like advertisements, he picks them up and looks at them. People who know him ask him, "What good stuff are you picking up?" Uncle Zhou smiles but doesn't answer.
One day as Uncle Zhou picked something up, his goddaughter ran up to him and asked him what he had found. Uncle Zhou said, "I am picking up Falun Gong information." "Oh? Why? Aren't you afraid other people might see you doing that?" "No, I am not afraid. I am actually picking up life."
When he saw his goddaughter looking puzzled, Uncle Zhou said, "What Falun Gong practitioners say is all true. I went through the Cultural Revolution. The Communist regime frightens the Chinese people with its lies and violence. Why are there so many disasters? It is because the Communist regime is fighting nature and doing evil things. People who are not blinded by the lies of the regime and do not fear the gun will be the ones who survive the disaster."
Hearing what Uncle Zhou said, his goddaughter became eager, "Please hurry up and tell me more details." "It's simple. All it means is to learn the truth about Falun Gong. When disasters come, people who have withdrawn from the Chinese Communist Party, from the Communist Youth League, and from the Young Pioneers will be the ones who land on their feet safe and sound. Falun Gong is rescuing people. Look, I've just picked up a Falun Gong leaflet." "Godfather, please give it to me. I am not afraid of the Communist regime, but I was blinded by its lies. You have saved my life. Thank you!"
