Vegetable Greenhouses Untouched by Hurricane
(Minghui.org) On April 26, 2016, a powerful hurricane struck the western part of Liaoning Province, an area that had not seen such a storm for a hundred years. People in the region were stunned by the extremely high winds and torrential rain.
I live in western Liaoning Province, which supplies greenhouse-grown vegetables to wholesale markets. The city I live in boasts the largest vegetable wholesale market in Liaoning Province.
When the force of the hurricane hit its peak, within a very short time approximately 70% of the greenhouses were either damaged or completely destroyed. Even the large metal frame roof of the wholesale market was blown off.
When the hurricane hit, many of the greenhouses were full of vegetables ready to be harvested. In the course of just a few hours, the fortunes of entire families that owned the destroyed greenhouses was lost.
Though most greenhouses were destroyed, some were left completely unscathed by the storm. It was very hard for people to understand why all the greenhouses belonging to some families were left intact while others lost everything. How could that be?
Power of Dafa Saves Livelihood
I am a Falun Dafa practitioner, so I naturally tell people about the goodness of Falun Dafa and help them understand that the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) persecution of the practice is wrong.
I often suggest that they repeat the phrases “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and explain how untold numbers of people have avoided calamity and experienced positive outcomes in difficult situations by doing that. I also help many people quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations to distance themselves from the Party and ensure themselves a good future.
One of the the villagers I talked to owns nine vegetable greenhouses with his family. Their farm extends one kilometer. The family witnessed the driving wind and rain of the hurricaine destroy many greenhouses and the crops they sheltered. This villager suddenly remembered the nine words I had taught him and began saying out loud, over and over, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and begged in his heart for Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, to bless his greenhouses. To his amazement, when the storm passed and the wind died down, all of his greenhouses were unharmed.
Falun Dafa Is Great
Once things settled down, he came to talk to me about what had happened. “You taught me to say ‘Falun Dafa is good’ and ask for blessings from Master Li. Well, I did that during the storm—and it really worked! The lives of my whole family are tied up in our greenhouses. They survived the storm, while most of the greenhouses nearby were completely destroyed. I can never thank you enough. Falun Dafa is great!”
I told him, “No need to thank me. Just thank Master Li and Dafa and you will always be blessed.”
Many others talked to him after the storm. They said, “Our greenhouses were all ruined by the hurricane. How did yours escape?” He told them that he believed what a Dafa practitioner had told him and that he had recited ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’ the whole time the storm was raging.
He told them that it was only because of Falun Dafa and Master Li’s blessing that his greenhouses withstood the force of the hurricane.
He was overjoyed that his family’s business was spared destruction and told everyone he met about his experience. His gratitude was beyond words.
Another villager, Mr. Zhou, believed that Jiang Zemin, the former head of the communist regime, was so jealous of Falun Dafa that he targeted the practice for elimination. His family owns seven greenhouses and a large nursery greenhouse. All of his greenhouses survived the storm, too.
Some of my family’s greenhouses are built of bamboo and look as though even a small scale wind could blow them away, let alone a powerful hurricane. But with Master’s blessing, they all escaped damage and rode out the storm in good shape.
Throughout my cultivation, I have experienced Master’s boundless compassion and the constant blessings of Falun Dafa. I thank Master for his compassion.
I also wish to tell those who believe the CCP’s lies about Falun Dafa: “Do not slander Dafa. Do not be deceived by the CCP’s lies. Listen to Dafa practitioners and believe what they say. They are risking everything to tell you.”
