(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioner “Linda” (name changed to protect her identity) was arrested for distributing Falun Gong materials that exposed the persecution in 2002.
Despite being imprisoned, she continued to tell those she met about the persecution. Many inmates learned about Falun Gong and the persecution, leading many to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and related organizations.
A 30 some year old woman benefited the most. Her situation was pitiable. Her husband died accidentally during a family dispute. In order to shirk responsibility, her two brothers-in-law framed her. She was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
She had lost everything, her freedom, husband, and home, as the two brothers-in-law divided up her property, and her 10-year-old child was left alone at home. She was despondent and felt helpless and hopeless.
Linda took her under her wing. She taught her how to face difficulties and tribulations. She talked about life, and touched upon the cycle of birth to illness, aging and death. She explained that one's blessings and tribulations were all based on one's virtue or karma. Nothing happened in life by accident.
She also told her about Falun Gong and stories that spoke of “good would be rewarded with good, while doing evil would be met with punishment.” She was fascinated by the stories and embraced the Falun Gong principles. She also started to recite, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” every day.
Instead of monitoring practitioners, as ordered by the prison guards, she protected them. She was on the lookout when practitioners did the exercises. She became more upbeat and energetic, and eventually her sentence was reduced by half.
After she was released, she found out that her two brother-in-laws had stolen everything, her house, farm land, and so on. She was devastated and looked for Linda. Linda calmed her down and suggested that she discuss the problem with the village leader. Most of the villagers were sympathetic toward her, as they knew that she had been framed. With their help, she got part of her farm land back.
She is a hard worker, and her life improved. Later she remarried; to a farmer in another village. He is quite a gentleman and treats her very well. They have a happy and harmonious life together.
They have lived in the city for a number of years now. They are very successful in their business. Her child went to a prestigious college, graduated, and got a terrific job.
“I am so fortunate to have come across Falun Gong,” she tells everyone she meets. “I am so blessed! I cannot imagine what my life would be otherwise.”
She told practitioners: “I hold deep respect for you and your belief. I also want to read Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Gong, and I also want to be a practitioner!”
