(Clearwisdom.net) I have always had a good relationship with my younger brother's wife, and we were like sisters. When my job moved to Beijing in 1984, we were no longer in frequent contact and only saw each other a couple times a year.

Five of her family members were members of the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organizations. They unquestioningly believed the CCP's propaganda, even though my sister-in-law's parents had been persecuted in the Cultural Revolution. They are still afraid of the CCP to this day. On one of our infrequent visits, I tried to tell them about Falun Gong and suggested quitting the CCP. My suggestion was met with fervent resistance. They refused to listen and argued intensely with me. They declared that they would firmly follow the CCP, but deep down they truly just feared the CCP and hated the control it had over them.

Three months after that incident, my sister-in-law discovered that she had a tumor on her hip that would require surgery. I contacted her and tried again to persuade her to quit the CCP. I explained the origins of the CCP and went over all the major incidents in history, such as the Cultural Revolution, the 1989 democracy movement in Beijing, as well as the corruption of the current government and its disastrous effects on China. This time, she seemed to understand and agreed to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.

She also came to understand the transformational power behind Dafa as I explained the changes that I had experienced from practicing. I gave her an amulet(1), and she agreed to recite “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Later on, I heard that she was using crutches and was suffering unbearable pain in her legs, even after a year and a half after surgery. Concerned for her, I went to visit. She told me that she hadn't been reciting the phrases like she promised. I told her some of the miraculous healing stories that had been published in Minghui Weekly. She came to understand that she needed to wholeheartedly repeat the phrases. Two months later, she was free of her crutches.

Earlier this year, she was experiencing extreme pain in her lower back. She was diagnosed with a herniated lumbar disc and again told that she had to undergo an operation. Then, at the end of July, she was diagnosed with liver cancer.

Her family was devastated when they heard the news. Yet, she still faithfully continued to repeat “Falun Dafa is good” every day, as if nothing had changed. My younger brother once said in a very sad voice, “I wish miracles really did happen.” Some of my sister-in-law's relatives were also Falun Gong practitioners and went to visit her, some even coming from out of town. They would read Falun Gong books to her. In the past when this happened, she didn't absorb anything. This time was different, and she started understanding the teachings and felt very good when she listened to the books on tape. A month later at a follow-up exam, her liver cancer had disappeared.

Her family was amazed that this had happened. My younger brother said excitedly, “A miracle really did happen! Falun Dafa is good!” Now he, too, recites the words, and his wife has started reading Falun Gong books.
