Ms. Jones works in a medical center in Peoria. When she heard about Falun Dafa and its healing power, she immediately asked if the practitioners could do an exercise demonstration where she worked. She was concerned about the fees. Practitioners told her that they were glad to demonstrate the exercises and it was free. Ms. Jones quickly left her contact information.
Ms. Symonds works at the National Association of Female Executives. When she learned about how the Chinese Communist regime tortures and persecutes Falun Gong practitioners in China, she was shocked and asked what the US government has done to stop the persecution. The practitioners told her that the US Senate has passed Resolution 232 to ask for an immediate end to the persecution. Ms. Symonds left her business card and said that she would definitely pay attention to the follow ups.
A couple from India came to Falun Dafa’s table and said that they had learned about the persecution of Falun Gong in China. Practitioners told them specific cases of how practitioners were tortured. The couple was upset about the Chinese Communist regime launching the persecution because it was afraid of losing mind control over its people. The couple was glad that India is a free country and people there can practice Falun Gong freely.
Many Chinese people who just came to the US came to the table to learn more about Falun Dafa. Some of them took Falun Dafa fliers and pamphlets. The children especially liked the paper lotus flowers with Falun Dafa bookmarks. They waited in line to take them home.
Many people left their names and contact information wanting to learn Falun Dafa.
