(Clearwisdom.net) I am 50 years old and unemployed. After I was laid off from my job, I sold watermelon seeds on the street to support my family. I worked very hard from morning until night. Although I knew that Falun Dafa was good and always wanted to learn, I could not sit down to read Zhuan Falun with a peaceful mind. I constantly worried about things like, since I had to sell watermelon seeds all day long, how could I find time to learn Falun Gong? But if I didn't work, how could I make a living?

I began to feel sick in October 2010. Blood tests revealed that I had hepatitis C, and the doctors said it was serious. My mind went blank when I heard this. I was thunderstruck and had no idea what I would do. Before that I had been healthy. Why had I suddenly been struck by such a disease? I wondered if I was going to die.

I was hospitalized immediately. I had to take medicine daily and have injections. The daily dose of interferon alone cost 1,330 yuan (about $200.00). Nonetheless my condition deteriorated daily. I became so weak that I could easily fall just walking. My body temperature was consistently between 38-39° C (100-102°F), and I felt that dying would probably feel better than living because the physical and mental miseries were beyond words. I cried every day, and my family was worried about me.

When I was totally desperate and without hope, a Falun Gong practitioner introduced to me the miracle of Dafa and gave me a copy of Zhuan Falun.

When I read to Chapter 4, a small lump formed on one side of my face, until that side was completely misshapen. My family asked me to go have my mouth checked to see if something was wrong inside my mouth. I thought that, since I had read Zhuan Falun, Master was protecting me. Master was indeed protecting me. Following that experience, my body went through a series of changes. Master was cleansing my body. Not only did the lump disappear, but when I was given another blood test, the results came back more favorable.

I am very healthy now, and my health has proven that Dafa is miraculous. My neighbors wanted to know how I was cured so fast, and what medicines I took. I told them that I was healed because I practiced Falun Gong. They said that Falun Gong was absolutely magical and great and that they wanted to learn, too!

I am a new Falun Gong practitioner. Master has given me a second life. I must redouble my efforts to study the Fa well, so that I will not fall short of Master’s expectation for me. I must do the three things well and always use the Fa to measure myself. Only by cultivating diligently can I thank Master.
