(Minghui.org) To welcome the 2016 New Year, Falun Dafa practitioners both inside and outside of China have sent greetings to the founder of Falun Dafa, Master Li Hongzhi. Along with the written greetings are scores of homemade greeting cards, poems, and photographs expressing gratitude and good wishes to Master Li for a Happy New Year.

Below is a selection of the 26 greetings sent from Falun Dafa practitioners who are illegally detained in prisons and detention centers in China: Sichuan Province, Jilin Province, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, Yunnan Province, Fujian Province, Jiangxi Province, Jiangsu Province, Shandong Province, Gansu Province, Shaanxi Province, Tianjin, Hubei Province, Liaoning Province, Hebei Province and Hunan Province.

One practitioner from Liaoning Province wrote that it is because of Master's protection that she could continue to be firm in her belief despite being detained and persecuted for the past 10 years. No words could express her gratitude towards Master.

Another practitioner in a detention center in Hengshui City, Hebei Province, misses Master and hopes that He can return to China soon. Other practitioners assured Master that, regardless of where they are, they will continue to believe in Master and Dafa. They thank Master for his compassionate protection.
