Taiwan: Local Businessman Helps Group from Mainland China Overcome Their Fear and Learn the Facts about Falun Gong
(Minghui.org) Although my husband was initially opposed to the idea of me practicing Falun Gong, he changed his mind and became supportive after I helped him understand more about the practice and the persecution by the communist regime.
He recently had an opportunity to help a group of wealthy entrepreneurs from mainland China learn the facts about Falun Gong when he showed them around tourist destinations in Taipei.
The 16 entrepreneurs in the group came to Taiwan for some training. This training course cost five hundred thousand New Taiwan dollars (about $20,000) per person.
Except for the daily training session, my husband accompanied them at all times, including dining, lodging and traveling.
I encouraged my husband to inform them about the facts of Falun Gong if he had an opportunity.
After he saw the group off, he called me and cheerfully told me his experience.
First Encounter with Falun Gong
"We ran into Falun Gong practitioners at our first stop--Taipei 101, [one of Asia's must-see destinations.]” My husband said, “It was pouring rain that day. Your fellow practitioners were really remarkable. They remained there to clarify the facts to tourists in such weather. I was moved."
"But these mainland entrepreneurs were so afraid that they didn't dare to take the informational materials.” He continued, “They kept saying 'How can Falun Gong [practitioners] publicly criticize the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)?' They hastily left the area and got on the tour bus.”
"As soon as they got on the bus, I said, 'What Falun Gong practitioners are saying is true.' But they appeared indifferent, and nobody dared to say anything."
Second Encounter—Breaking through the Fear
“We came across Falun Gong practitioners again at our second stop -- the Shilin Official Residence, [another tourist destination]” he said.
“This time, they gathered around the display boards, appearing a bit nervous, but also curious." He said, "Your fellow practitioners talked to them about Falun Gong. They didn't walk away, but listened quietly."
“After we got on the bus and left there, I picked up a microphone and said, 'Taiwan has freedom of speech. You can speak up if you want to.”
My husband continued, "As far as I know, what Falun Gong practitioners are saying is true. They don't want to get involved in politics, but if the government committed a crime, they have the right to speak out and we have the right to know the truth."
“You're right!” an entrepreneur echoed, “I also know that what Falun Gong says is true, it's only that it is inconvenient to talk about it in public inside China."
Another person suddenly called out, “Let me off, let me off! Just now a Falun Gong practitioner offered to help me withdraw from the CCP organizations, but I haven't told her 'yes' yet.” After that, everybody on the bus began openly talking about Falun Gong.
My husband said to me, “I'll help Falun Gong practitioners clarify the facts to Chinese tourists whenever possible. It has become a part of my job.”
