More People in China Now Have a Better Understanding of Falun Gong
(Minghui.org) As Falun Gong practitioners work hard to raise awareness of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution of the spiritual discipline, more and more people have come to appreciate the goodness of Falun Gong and condemn the CCP's brutality.
Many non-practitioners have seen their health restored or danger averted, further strengthening their support for Falun Gong.
Some of the supporters even take the initiative to protect practitioners or seek more information about the persecution. Below are a few such examples sent in by both practitioners and non-practitioners:
These three authors recount how members of their family have benefited from supporting Falun Gong and quitting the CCP.
My 102-Year-Old Mother-in-law Recovered from a Broken Arm in a Month
This happened many years ago but I can still remembered it clearly. My mother-in-law was 102 in 1997. At that time, Falun Gong was spreading very quickly across the country. I was busy every day with new practitioners wanting to watch Master's video lectures and I did not have much time to take care of her.
One night when she got up to use the restroom, she fell down and broke the bones in her left hand and lower arm.
Soon after my husband took her to the hospital, she was discharged. When I asked if she was given any medicine, my husband replied, “The doctor said that she is already over 100. Do you still want her to recover and help you with your chores?”
My mother-in-law had to rest in bed. Twelve days later, she untied the splint herself because she said it itched too much. In less than a month, she could use her left hand to hold and eat a bowl of noodles.
There is a saying that it takes a hundred days for bones to heal, but my mother-in-law recovered from her broken bones in less than one month.
It reminded me of what Master said:
“When one person obtains the Fa, the whole family will benefit.” (Teaching the Fa and Answering Questions in Jinan in Zhuan Falun Fajie - The Law of Zhuan Falun Explained)
No Longer Worried about My Daughter's Face
I am from Handan City and married a practitioner in 2008. Initially, my ideas about Falun Gong came from the negative news reports in the media.
When I found out that my husband's parents practiced Falun Gong, my family and I were apprehensive. But after getting to know them, we discovered that they were sincere and kind, nothing like what the media claimed.
Our beautiful daughter was born in 2010, and we named her “Gege.”
Not long after, we noticed a red line at the corner of Gege's mouth. She was diagnosed with a “hemangioma.” Doctors said that the position of the hemangioma was a little unusual and that blood would ooze out when Gege started teething. It would be difficult to stop the bleeding if this happened, and they suggested surgery. However, the operation would leave a permanent scar. We were hesitant.
I left my daughter in the care of my mother-in-law because I had to work. Gege read the Fa with my mother-in-law. She started speaking at eight months and enunciated her words very clearly. My mother-in-law taught her to recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and the poems in Hong Yin. She also taught her to sing songs composed by practitioners.
Gege was very clever and learned them all quickly. She loved to look at Master's photo and always wanted to greet Master whenever my mother-in-law took out Falun Gong books.
When Gege was a year and a half, my mother-in-law told us that the red line had disappeared. There was no need for surgery and we no longer had to worry that her face would be scarred. Falun Dafa is so amazing!
I had heard about other miracles that happened to cultivators. Although I knew that they did not lie, I was still skeptical. After seeing it with my own eyes, I now believe it. I am also aware that the official media reports unjustly defame the practice.
My daughter is now healthy and intelligent. I am glad I married into a family that practices Falun Gong.
Nephew's Heartfelt Words: Quitting the Party Can Guarantee Safety
My husband's nephew is a farmer and lives in a mountainous area. He understood the facts about Falun Gong many years ago and quit the Young Pioneers.
On September 17, he was riding his bike into town when a pickup truck knocked him over the highway guardrail. He landed nine meters away. The driver of the truck was using his phone and ran over the bike.
Horrified at what he’d done, the driver called for an ambulance and had my nephew taken to the hospital. My nephew had sustained only minor bruising. Everyone present said that it was a miracle that he had no actual injuries.
Through this accident, my nephew believes even more in Dafa and told his relatives and friends that withdrawing from the Party can really guarantee a person’s safety.
Two Instances of Security Guards Protecting Falun Gong Practitioners
In a city in Guangdong Province, a few police officers went to a mountainous area on September 20, 2016. They told the security guard, “We are looking for Ms. Huang, who practices Falun Gong.”
“That Ms. Huang is a good person. She doesn't steal or kill. Why are you looking for her? You should arrest bad people instead!” the security guard said.
The officers asked, “What does Ms. Huang do in her free time?”
“What she does on her off days doesn't concern me,” the guard replied.
“You must report it to us if she does anything,” the police said.
The guard told them, “Her company will take care of it if anything happens. You are the police. Is it right to arrest good people instead of bad people?”
The police soon left.
The people nearby were astonished to hear this exchange. The guard explained that ever since he became a security guard, he had noticed that the police did not arrest the thieves and murderers. Instead, the CCP has been persecuting Falun Gong practitioners, who are good people.
A female practitioner had just put one up when a young man came out and shined his flashlight on it. He said, “Hey! Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good! Punish Jiang Zemin!”
When the practitioner saw that the man was wearing a security guard uniform, she walked away quickly.
“Stop!” the man shouted at her.
The practitioners thought that the man did not understand the facts about Falun Gong until he said, “Don't put your posters here. Put them outside so that more people can see them.”
Two Incidents of People Eagerly Waiting to Learn More About Falun Gong and the Three Withdrawals
I was on my way home and saw a middle-aged man sitting by the side of the road. I struck up a conversation with him and asked if he had withdrawn from the Party.
I learned that he had already heard the facts about Falun Gong and had quit the CCP. I then asked if he had read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. When he said that he had not, I gave him a copy.
Just then, a young man came up behind us and asked, “Do you have another copy of that book?”
I said I did not. The young man turned and asked the other man if he would give him the book.
The middle-aged man was unwilling to part with it. I said, “Give it to the young man. I'll get you another one tomorrow.”
He gave the book reluctantly to the young man. The young man was, however, very pleased and told us, “Did you know that my colleagues are looking for this book?”
Another time at a train station, I heard someone shouting for me to wait for her. I turned around and saw an old lady walking hastily towards me.
She came over and said, “A colleague asked me to wait for her here, but I haven't seen her for three days. I wonder what’s happened.”
I smiled at her, “Maybe you are waiting for me. I've some very important news for you.”
She looked at me suspiciously. I told her the facts about Dafa and also about quitting the CCP to be safe.
She listened very attentively and said, “I must have been waiting for you, after all. I have never heard all this before. Help my family do the three withdrawals quickly!”
I gave her a booklet with facts about Falun Gong and a talisman. She assured me that she would tell her whole family to recite, “Falun Dafa is good.”
Finally, she hugged me and said, “Thank you very much!”
I told her to thank our master instead, which she did, and tears started rolling down her face.
