(Minghui.org) My husband is almost 60 years old. He is a simple-minded person, yet he is now a supervisor of a company. This surprised us both. It must be his reward for supporting Falun Gong.
My husband is a kindhearted, energetic and hard-working. At the time of our marriage, I was very sick. Since early childhood I suffered from a chronic cough. I had to see doctors often and was not able to work. My husband had to take care of our farm of about three acres. He often asked relatives to help. However, all the money we earned went to pay my medical expenses. We had a hard life.
Plus, being young and newly married with a sick wife was very discouraging for him, and he often wept quietly.
My health never improved, and then in 1997, I was on the verge of death. It was then that I started to practice Falun Gong.
At first I did not even have the strength to do the exercises, so I just listened to Master Li's lectures (the founder of Falun Gong). I did this for three days, and then I started to throw up a spicy, bitter fluid. I knew Master was cleansing my body. My stomach had been bloated, but it became normal. I had to urinate countless times every day. But seven days later my edema was cured. After that I was able to do more housework.
A month later I was able to work in the field with my husband. He was so happy. “Falun Gong is miraculous,” he told everyone. “It saved my wife when she was near death.”
In this way, many villagers then came to me to learn Falun Gong, and my husband welcomed them. He made sure the house was warm in the winter for them, and always made sure everyone was comfortable.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started to persecute Falun Gong and defame its founder Mr. Li Hongzhi in July 1999. However, Falun Gong saved my life. How could I not stand up and appeal for it as a practitioner?
My husband was ordered to go to the local government. A deputy mayor questioned my husband: “Is Falun Gong good or not?”
“Falun Gong is good,” my husband replied. “It cured my wife's illness.” All the officials just laughed.
I told everyone I met in public that Falun Gong is good. Moreover, the police could not catch me, but they took my husband to the police station. When police asked him about Falun Gong, he said, “Falun Gong is indeed good. My wife was cured so quickly by it.” One of the policemen present became angry at his response. He cursed my husband and wanted to shock him with an electronic baton, but he was stopped by another officer.
Because of the persecution, I felt I had to leave home. During that time, my husband was often harassed by the local police. The director of the local police station was also under a lot of pressure because he could not catch me. He talked to my husband several times. “You should divorce her,” he said. “It would be good for us both. What do you say? Our future's will be better. Plus, she can't come home anyway.” My husband refused, and the director gave up trying to convince him.
In my 18 years of cultivation, there have been many times that I had to leave home to avoid persecution. Therefore, my husband had to raise our child, work in the field, and take care of the livestock. He saved some money, and later we built a new house. Our son also married. My son and daughter-in-law are very good to us. My grandchild is healthy and smart.
In recent years I have worked in the field, too. My husband works outside the village, and our life is prosperous. My husband worked in manual labor in the beginning, but one week later he was promoted to tend the machines. My husband helped me distribute Falun Gong materials to all the people at his work, so they all know I practice Falun Gong.
My husband works hard. He was praised by the workshop director and the general manager. My relatives and friends all know where my husband is employed, and he has a good reputation. Many people in our village ask for his help in getting a job at the company where he works.
The general manager even wanted to promote my husband to be a supervisor. He and the director of the workshop talked to my husband several times, he thought he lacked the education for such a position and thus refused. Six months later the director insisted my husband be the supervisor. So he gave in and accepted the director's offer. The director was pleased and promised him many good benefits.
Hugging our lovely grandson my husband often says to me: "I never thought we could have a life like today. We live in a new house and finances are good. We have a wonderful grandchild."
"Falun Gong saved our family,” I replied. “We should sincerely thank Master. "
"That is why I support Falun Gong!" he said.
