After He Changed His Attitude Toward Falun Dafa, My Paralyzed Brother-in-law Could Walk Again
(Minghui.og) My husband's 77-year-old brother-in-law came to visit us last month. He's very spirited and healthy. No one who saw him could believe he has had strokes and needed help using the bathroom six years ago.
As soon as he saw me, he said, “Thank you for telling me to say, 'Falun Dafa is good!' Thanks to Master for saving me!”
In April 2008, my husband told me his brother-in-law had called twice. He had been hospitalized for more than a month because of severe leg pain, but he wasn't getting any better.
I told my husband that I wanted to visit him. My husband was unhappy and said, “How can you help him? You just want to tell him about Falun Gong. I won't give you his number or address!” I thought to myself, “You can't stop me.”
My husband's brother-in-law lived in another city, Yichang. The next morning I left home at 6:30 a.m. to travel to his city. Less than 30 minutes after I boarded the bus, it got very dark and a thunderstorm started. The storm lasted for more than 2 hours. When the bus arrived, the storm stopped and the sun came out.
Kind Security Person
I'd never been to Yichang, so I was a little lost when I got off the bus. How could I find him without his phone number or an address?
I asked Master for help. I began walking and found a busy market. There were many people there. I went to a woman in her 50s and chatted with her. She told me she was the security person and had worked there for more than 10 years.
“So you must be familiar with the people who live here,” I said. “Yes, I am.”
“Do you know a lady in her 40s named Liping?” (Liping is my husband's sister.)
She said, “No, I don't know a person with this name, but I know a woman from Hanchuan named Xiaoping.”
“That's great! Xiaoping is Liping's sister. I can find Liping through Xiaoping”
The woman was very kind. She found Xiaoping's phone number and said she lived nearby.
Xiaoping came soon after the woman phoned her. She was so surprised to see me and asked how I had found her. I told her I found her with Master's help. She thought it was amazing after hearing my story.
A Suffering Patient
I went to the hospital with Xiaoping to visit my husband's brother-in-law. We heard him moaning as soon as we stepped in.
Liping, my husband's sister, massaged his legs and looked tired. They told me his legs had started to hurt six weeks before. He was hospitalized a few days later but didn't get better.
About ten days after he was hospitalized, his other leg also began hurting and he couldn't move it. He could not move either of his legs and was paralyzed. He could not eat or sleep due to the pain. He lost more than 30 lbs. He argued with the doctor because he did not get better after spending more than 10,000 yuan. The doctor got angry, refused to treat him, and told him to leave the hospital.
He did not know what to do because this hospital was the best one in this city. The next day his son moved him back home because the doctor refused to treat him.
His Attitude towards Dafa Changes
I gave him truth clarification materials and told him, “Only Dafa can save you. You will get better if you recite, 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.'”
He did not believe me. The next day, I told him I had to go home. He said, “Please stay and help me.”
I said seriously, “You didn't get better after spending so much money. What I asked you to do is to just change your attitude towards Dafa. It wasn't easy for me to find you in this strange city. I can't do anything if you cannot change your attitude.”
He said, “I'll listen to you. Please stay until I get better.”
I agreed. I sent forth righteous thoughts for about half an hour. In the afternoon we heard him asking loudly, “Where are my shoes?”
I went to his bed and said with a smile, “You couldn't move for more than a month. Now you can move and walk?”
He said, “Yes! I'm cured. I had a good lunch and a nap. I felt thirsty just now and wanted to get some water myself but couldn't find my shoes. I am cured and do not feel the pain at all. Dafa is amazing. Thank you, Master, for saving me!”
He walked to the dining table by himself that evening and had dinner with us. He was very happy. I was very happy, too, and went home the next day.
After I got home, my husband asked me how his brother-in-law was. I told him that Master saved him. My husband didn't believe it. He called his brother-in-law, who said, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion- Forbearance is good. My pain disappeared in half a day.”
