(Minghui.org) Ms. Ying still remembers how she celebrated the first World Falun Dafa 14 years ago. As the only practitioner in Peru, she went to Chinatown and performed the excises by herself. Surrounded by Chinese who had been deceived by hate propaganda from Communist Party, she was calm and without fear.

After all, practicing the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is a truly good thing. No lies could ever cover the truth, she thought.

Fourteen years have passed and Ms. Ying was glad to celebrate this annual event again, now with dozens of local practitioners. Globally, this special occasion is celebrated by practitioners in over 100 countries, to commemorate the 22 nd anniversary of Falun Dafa’s introduction to the public.

In Peru, this included group exercises on May 10 at the Campo de Marte, one of the largest parks in the metropolitan area of the capital city of Lima. On the following day, practitioners gathered again to hold a celebration in Chinatown, where they practiced the exercises and and set up a poster display to inform people about the persecution in China.

Practitioners Francisco and Angelica shared how they benefited from practicing Falun Dafa. Following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance helped them resolve conflicts and their families became more harmonious.

Another practitioner, Jose, talked about one recent accident he had when riding a motorcycle. “I was hit by a truck, but I was not injured at all. It was a miracle.” He expressed sincere gratitude for Master Li's protection.
