Falun Gong Protected My Family
(Minghui.org) I live in the countryside. I turned 52 this year, and I earn a living by working in the fields. My son just graduated from high school and works outside of my hometown. We have a small income, but we feel it is adequate because my husband practices Falun Gong, which has helped our whole family a lot.
During the 2008 Olympics, my husband hung up posters in public about Falun Gong and the persecution and was arrested by local police and the Domestic Security Division. The police ransacked my home. My husband was sentenced to prison.
My son was scared and dared not come home. I had surgery not long ago and witnessed my husband's arrest. As a result, my heart disease reoccurred, and I was alone in my house and felt hopeless.
Other practitioners took a huge risk to visit me. They took care of me, calmed me down, and encouraged me to be brave. They told me to remember, “Falun Gong is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” and that Master Li (the founder of Falun Gong) would protect me.
I appreciated their help and did what they told me. I recited the phrases, and soon my pain disappeared. I regained my energy and was able to go back to work in the fields.
A burglar jumped over the wall around my home one night. The sound of the burglar's steps were close to me, and I was very scared. I kept reciting the phrases many, many times and asked Master to protect me. The sounds vanished.
When I went to the backyard to check in the morning, I found that many of the green onions that had been stored there were missing. The burglar dropped several bunches of the green onions outside my backyard.
Our area had too much rain and wind during this past summer. All of the corn fields in our village, except for mine, were destroyed. Most of my corn were still standing tall. Only several stalks were hit and lay in the mud.
The villagers commented that my family had the protection of gods. This year, my family harvested a lot of corn, while the other villagers had little or none. I knew it was Falun Gong that protected my family again.
A Happy Family
My son came home with his girlfriend at the end of this year. They were co-workers. The girl was from Heilongjiang Province and also from the countryside. She was smart, and I asked her what she wanted for her marriage with my son. She said she had sympathy for my family and that she didn’t want anything.
I sold our corn and spent the money to paint the old house before the Chinese New Year. They got married, and the next year they gave me a grandson.
My husband was imprisoned, but given Falun Gong's protection, I could still harvest crops every year.
My Husband Returns Home
When my husband was released, he was surprised to see a sweet family picture of my son and his wife living happily with their cute son. I was also very healthy. He said, “Thank you, Master!”
My harmonious family life was brought about by Falun Gong, and this cultivation practice protected my family. My family's gratitude is beyond words.
