(Clearwisdom.net) I live in Huaiyang County, Henan Province. I started practicing Falun Gong in February 1998. In the past, I had severe bronchitis and emphysema. My family is very poor, and both times when I was very sick, I almost died. However, Master pulled me back from death's door. After that, I began practicing Falun Gong with a very determined mind.

In my family, besides myself, my wife and our son and daughter also practice Falun Gong. Because we shared the practice with them, almost half of the families in our village started practicing. Through doing the five exercises, my bronchitis and emphysema completely disappeared and I have regained my health.

In recent years, my wife and I have managed four acres of land. By growing Chinese yams, we can make more than one hundred thousand yuan every year. With the money, we built a dozen two-story houses and bought a van. We also built a cold storage room for the yams so we can sell them all year round. Blessed because we practice Falun Gong, we have become prosperous.

After seeing our lives improve, many villagers followed us and started practicing. I taught them the exercises in the evening, while in the daytime, I taught them the planting techniques to grow Chinese yams. In a few years, they had also become prosperous.

Before the Chinese communist regime started the persecution of Falun Gong, over 100 million people practiced Falun Gong in China. Falun Gong's ability to help people keep fit and benefit society was very well known.
