Dafa Has Greatly Blessed Me and My Customers
(Minghui.org) My family was so poor that we couldn't even afford salt. Years later, one of my sons told me, “I was so hungry that when I saw an apple core that a neighbor kid threw away, I wanted to pick it up and eat it.”
Many people made a fool of me after I was persecuted and released from the labor camp for practicing Falun Dafa. My mother told me, “I felt ashamed and dare not go outdoors because you were detained.”
My relatives blamed me for being no good, not to mention strangers. They even said to me, “Look at your three sons. Wait and see who dares to introduce girlfriends to them.”
When we started our own business, one person sneered at me, “Oh, my sister, I've heard you are running a business.”
Another mocked me for practicing Falun Dafa. For such people, I always warned them, “Do not mock me like this. Dafa practitioners are not your targets to deride.”
It happened quite often that our cement packages would break open and I would sew them back together. If the packages got wet from rain, I would take the wet cement out and replace it with some dry cement. I keep one principle in doing business: be honest and never have customers take the loss.
All my vendors know that our family members are upright. Whenever salesmen from the cement factory arrive at our place, they greet me with “Falun Dafa is good.” When people come to my home, they never give my real name; they say they are going to the Dafa practitioner's home.
I started to practice Falun Dafa in 1996. I was clearly aware of my goal in this lifetime: I was here for Dafa. No matter how poor or rich, I would never change my belief in Falun Dafa.
My house is next to road traffic, and we have a large backyard. Before we started our own business, we rented it out to a coal vendor. After he quit his business, we took it over and started selling construction materials, including sand, stone, cement, and lime.
I took the opportunity to tell my customers about Falun Dafa and the persecution. The more I told people the facts, the more I liked doing it, and the less fearful I was.
Many touching stories happened these years. All my customers were greatly blessed. They said it was Falun Dafa that brought them good fortune. I would like to share several such stories.
‘All My Blessings Come from Dafa’
One cement truck driver told me about one accident he had and how he escaped.
One time, he became very drunk and fell asleep with a lit cigarette. The cigarette butt burned a large hole in his clothes.
“You know what?” he said to me later. “Someone called my name and woke me up. 'It's on fire! Wake up!' I was shocked and awoke. My clothes were burned like this. It's the Master of Dafa who saved me. If he didn't wake me up, our house would have burned down in a big fire. I can't imagine how badly I could have been hurt.”
After that, he started to give people information about Dafa. His son said to me, “Auntie, our business is running so great. We're so blessed. We go door to door whenever give out Dafa materials to villagers. We thank Dafa for our good fortune.”
Another driver often quarreled with his wife. Though he was young, he took deep sighs from time to time and was depressed. However, he took the Dafa materials whenever I gave them out.
He soon began to take on a new outlook. He shared with me, “These are really great. I brought home the materials you gave me. My wife read them and now looks like a new person. Before, she never had any warm words for me even I went home tired. We seemed like enemies. She never cared about what time I went home.”
“Sister,” he said, “you know how hard it is to be a truck driver? I rarely eat meals on time. I could only rely on alcohol to keep me going. My wife would curse at me whenever I drank. She didn't seem to care about me at all, even when I was dead drunk.”
“After she read the materials you gave me, she has gradually changed. She now shows concern for me. No matter what time I arrive at home, she asks if I feel tired and what I wanted to eat.”
“Dafa is really great. She shared the truth materials with other ladies in our neighborhood. Now, the families in our neighborhood are very harmonious. We are really blessed by Dafa.”
On another day, a man who transported tiles for me happily took several amulets I offered him. Several days later, he came back and shared his auntie's story.
“I gave one to my aunt who had been paralyzed for several years. She read the words 'Falun Dafa is good' on it and could walk afterwards. She said it was all because of the amulet. My relatives and friends are asking for Dafa amulets from me. Can you give me a few more?”
Escaping Danger after Reading ‘Falun Dafa Is Good’
Shuanzhu, who transported cement for me, told a more miraculous story.
One day he encountered a car in front of a supermarket in town and found that his brakes didn’t work. He immediately turned and managed to avoid a collision. However, another car was following closely and drove into his path. In a narrow street with many pedestrians, Shuanzhu had no idea how to control the situation.
Suddenly, he remembered what I told him when he encountered danger: “Say ‘Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good.’” In this dangerous situation, he could remember nothing more than “Falun Dafa is good.”
He described what had happened. “I don't know how I escaped. A car came from the north, then another car showed up. My truck was out of control. I had no idea what would happen. I just said 'Falun Dafa is good'. As I said the words, I had no fear at all. I turned the wheel this way, that way, and escaped a collision of four cars in a row. I don't know how I made it!”
As he recalled, he said he was deathly afraid afterward. “I squatted there, dumbfounded, and couldn't stand up for a while. If I had hit anyone at the time, the medical costs would've more than bankrupted me.”
“Witnesses said that my driving skills were great. Actually, I was out of control at that point. I could have had several collisions without the protection from Falun Dafa. Thanks to saying ‘Falun Dafa is good,’ I survived a disaster.”
He shared his story with other cement drivers. “You don't know what danger I went through yesterday. Falun Dafa can really protect us!”
Those drivers had heard about Dafa from me many times before. After they heard Shuanzhu’s story, they all came to me and asked for amulets.
Luck Turns for Believing in Falun Dafa
Here is a story about the truck driver named Zhang.
Zhang often had flat tires and complained, “Other drivers have never had a flat tire even after their trucks had a lot of mileage. Why do my tires keep blowing out? Why?”
I told him about Falun Dafa and the crimes committed by the Communist Party. I asked him if he had joined the Party and its affiliated organizations. He said he had joined the Communist Youth League and agreed to renounce his membership. I also gave him some handouts.
His wife later shared with me, “Sister, Falun Dafa is really great. I didn't take it into consideration before when you told me how great Falun Gong is. Now, everyone in my family believes it. You have no idea how smooth our life is now. We're successful in whatever we do. We've never been so successful!”
She continued, “There was a slope we often passed by. My husband used to ask me to talk with him whenever he drove over it so he wouldn’t fall asleep or have an accident.”
“Now, he doesn't ask me to chat with him. Instead, he says 'Falun Dafa is good' and 'Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good.' He said he's clearminded and tranquil while he says these words. Our tires have never blown out since then.”
People who knew Zhang said that he now lives his life according to Falun Dafa's principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance.
Brazen Brothers Clean Up Their Act
There were five brothers who were called the “Five Big Shameless Guys” in a nearby village. Three of them ran a business selling construction materials.
When we first started our business, we bought some lime from them. The following day, the third brother came to our home and claimed that my husband had given him a counterfeit 50-yuan bank note.
My husband and I knew he was trying to scam us. He was very aggressive and came with an arrogant air.
I gave him another 50-yuan bank note and tore apart the other one. He looked shocked. I said, “We are Falun Dafa practitioners. We never cheat others. Let's base our business relationship on sincerity and honesty in the future.”
I told the brothers about Dafa whenever we met. Gradually, they started behaving better, and their business grew. They also gave materials about Dafa to others after they read them.
My Family's Great Blessings
Everyone in my family lives by the principles of Falun Dafa. Our business is prosperous.
My sons are doing great. My eldest son went to work as an apprentice in a factory after finishing middle school. He acquired certain skills. I purchased a machine for him to start his own business. He married a college graduate.
My second son got a Bachelor's degree and married a girl with a Master's degree.
My youngest son quit school after finishing only the first level of middle school. He now works as a project manager in a big company. He married a girl with a Bachelor's degree.
My nephew often says to me, “Auntie, your family is now the richest in this village. We see you getting richer and richer each year. We all admire you. Whenever we mention you, everyone gives a thumbs-up.”
Whenever I respond to comments like these, I tell people the truth: “All this good fortune comes from Falun Dafa.”
