I saw a fellow at the elevator entrance while shopping for clothes on the afternoon of January 21, 2013. He was begging for money with a bowl and a walking stick in his hands.
After walking by him, I turned back and told him: “Remember, Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I also advised him to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated Youth League and Youth Pioneers. He was happy to withdraw from the Youth Pioneers and was very thankful.
He said: “People everywhere are saying that Falun Dafa is good. I know that practitioners are good people and are willing to help others.” I was moved to tears upon hearing his words. I gave him a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. He told me that he'd read it that night.
I tried to give him some money, but he wouldn't take it and said: “I've received enough from you already. Thank you very much.” I told him to thank Teacher instead.
This incident allowed me to better understand that when saving a person, it does not matter what level a person might be at in our society.

One day, I was at a bakery looking for something good to eat, when an elderly lady suggested that I select an item that she'd bought before. I smiled, thanked her and bought a big portion of that item.
Clearly, she was someone with a predestined relationship, so I said: “These days, there are many unsafe foods. I can tell that you are a good person. I am close to 60 years old now. May I call you my elder sister?” She replied, “Of course, I am 70 already.” I said: “You look much younger and you're blessed. I have important news for you. The CCP is extremely corrupt and it will be destroyed by Heaven. Have you heard about withdrawing from the CCP, the Youth League and the Youth Pioneers so that you will be safe? Many natural and man-made disasters are happening now. Later, perhaps a big plague will weed out bad people, especially those who persecute Falun Dafa practitioners.”
She said that her name was Liu and that she was a member of the Youth League and Youth Pioneers. I told her that I would use Liu Shan as her name to perform the withdrawals for her. I also asked her to recite, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I gave her an amulet and a Shen Yun Performing Arts DVD to watch. She was grateful for my gifts and told me that she would love to recite the words I'd told her.
She wanted to walk with me and learn more about Falun Dafa. I shared with her that I'd suffered from a headache for over ten years and was on pills every day without any improvement. I also had chronic rhinitis, rheumatism, tonsillitis, and gynecological diseases, and led a miserable life until I began practicing Falun Dafa. For over ten years now I have not taken any pills. I have used the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to guide me in everything I do. Whenever there was a conflict, I look inward for a reason, try to look at things from others' perspectives, stay open-minded and remain calm and peaceful. I truly feel great with this practice.
After I spoke to her about how great Falun Dafa was and how the CCP was persecuting Dafa, I told her that she should also read the wonderful book Zhuan Falun to reap the benefits for herself. She was excited and said, “I know that the practice of Falun Dafa is beneficial. Not only do you look great, but you also have no wrinkles on your face.”
When we were about to part, she told me where she lived and that she hoped we would meet again. I was moved and happy for her, knowing that she would be saved.

I used an MP3 player to broadcast stories about traditional culture when I worked at a factory. I turned up the volume so that the entire factory could hear it.
Although people nowadays are not aware of their true purpose for being here and have become greedy, they can still understand what is good. Several colleagues told me that the information was good. One day, my boss even asked to borrow my player in order to listen to the traditional stories at home.
I explained the purpose of life on Earth to my colleagues, and that they should withdraw from the CCP and its related organizations, because the CCP has chosen to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners. They all agreed.

I am a practitioner from Baoding in Hebei Province. Toward the end of 2008, my cousin's son developed a heart condition and was quickly taken to the hospital for emergency care. He was then transferred to a larger hospital in Beijing, where doctors decided that he needed at least two bypass surgeries. He was only in his 30s at the time. I was surprised to hear this.
The son had already withdrawn from the CCP and its related organizations. His father had been a member of the CCP, but had withdrawn, too. However, his father did not understand the real meaning behind the withdrawals, and the evil party continued to give him an award every year.
Two of these awards were pictures of sickles and axes (symbols of communism). My cousin had hung them on the wall. I thought it would be best if his wife could find a reason to destroy the awards.
A few days later, the New Year's holiday arrived, and I decided to go to Beijing to see how my cousin's son was doing in the hospital. Before I got there, however, I got a call telling me that he was fine and out of the hospital.
Upon seeing my cousin, I asked him, “Since you have withdrawn from the CCP, why keep those pictures with sickles and axes?” He didn't reply. I looked around and did not see the two awards.
When my cousin's wife came home, she explained that she'd visited a fortune teller who told her that her son was protected by Buddha and was safe. Upon returning home, she had an argument with my cousin, got angry and destroyed the awards.
A few days later, a hospital checkup showed that their son was perfectly healthy, and he was released from the hospital. He has remained healthy to this day.
