Man Stands Up From Wheelchair After Speaking Sacred Words

December 29, 2015 |   By a Falun Dafa practitioner from Toronto, Canada

(Minghui.org) Ms. Shi, who practices Falun Dafa, traveled to Chinatown in Toronto to tell others about the spiritual practice and the persecution taking place in China. As she was getting off the bus, she noticed an older man in a wheelchair. His wife and caretaker were standing nearby. Ms. Shi walked over to them with a friendly “hello” and struck up a conversation.

His wife told Ms. Shi that her husband had not been able to walk for a long time. They went to see many doctors and tried many cures, spending a lot of money and suffering the disappointment that came with no improvement.

Ms. Shi began to tell them about Falun Dafa, the persecution, and the importance of quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). She said: “Quitting the CCP is to terminate memberships from the Communist Party and the associated organizations. When you joined them, you vowed that you would fight for communism for life and be ready to sacrifice your life for them at any time. Quitting the CCP means that you are voiding that vow. So far, there have been more than 223 million Chinese people who have quit.”

The elderly man was a little resistant. “If I quit the Party, who is going to feed me?” he asked. “It is the CCP who is feeding me now.”

“We earn our food with our own labor,” Ms. Shi responded. If you don't work, do they give you money? Look at all the people in China who can't find jobs. They have nothing to eat. In fact, it is the common people who are feeding the CCP! Those corrupted CCP officials are the ones who reap without sowing, and they take all the profits that were made by the hard-working people.”

The man finally understood and said that he wanted to withdraw his membership in the CCP.

Ms. Shi told them how people practice Falun Dafa in over 100 countries around the world. She said when the founder of Falun Dafa, Master Li Hongzhi, first taught the practice in China, people with different illnesses entered the classes in wheelchairs or on stretchers, and were able to walk out themselves. She added that over the years, many people sincerely repeated “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” and their illnesses—even very serious cancers—were cured.

The elderly man was now very interested. He asked if he could be cured too. Ms. Shi said, “If you sincerely repeat, 'Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,' miracles may indeed happen.”

“Okay, I will say it!” he said. So he, his wife, and his caretaker all repeated the phrase three times. Suddenly, he pushed down on the arms of the wheelchair and stood up! He even walked around.

The people standing next to him were shocked. “This is so incredible!” he exclaimed. His wife gave Ms. Shi a hug and thanked her. Ms. Shi told them, “It is not me. It is my Master—the Teacher of Falun Dafa. He is who you should thank!”

The man became serious and told me that he had two sons currently in China, both of whom are CCP members.

“What Falun Dafa practitioners have said is all true!” the man said. “The Chinese people have been lied to so much by this Party! I'll definitely tell my sons about today, and I'll also tell all my relatives and friends about it as well.”
