Touching Stories from a Farmer's Market
(Minghui.org) I recently rented a stall at a farmer's market, as I wanted to tell more people about Falun Dafa. Many people learned about the practice and experienced miraculous things. The following are a few touching stories.
Elderly Lady Can Now Sleep Well and Feels Much Stronger
An elderly woman who appeared to be in her seventies came to the market. She was having trouble walking, and looked extremely weak. I greeted her cheerfully and asked how she was doing.
“I have trouble sleeping and eating,” she replied. “It's also difficult for me to swallow. I've been to several hospitals and tried many different medicines, but nothing has helped.”
I told her that all she needed to do was repeat the words “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She asked me to write it down for her, as her memory was not so good.
She returned to the market five days later and said, “I started to repeat the words you told me the very day you wrote them down for me. I was able to eat two bowls of porridge that night. I can sleep well now, and feel much stronger.”
People in her village had been asking how she had recovered so quickly. When she told them about reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” others began to do the same. Many miraculous things began happening afterwards, and many of her neighbors came to the market to learn more about Falun Dafa.
Woman No Longer Needs Sunglasses to Protect Her Eyes
There was a woman at the market who sold pork, and always wore sunglasses. When she passed my booth one time, I inquired as to why she always wore the sunglasses. She took them off, and I could see that her eyes were red-raw and nearly swollen shut.
I told her about the wonders of Falun Dafa. I suggested that she repeat the phrase “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I also told her about the movement to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations. Without a moments hesitation, she agreed to quit.
I saw her again at the market ten days later. She looked like a new person. Her eyes were no longer red, and she didn't need to wear the sunglasses. She looked radiant, and thanked me many times. I told her to thank Master Li Hongzhi and Falun Dafa.
“That Was You In My Dream!”
I greeted a middle-aged woman one day and told her about Falun Dafa. I began telling her about repeating “Falun Dafa is good” and withdrawing from the CCP's organizations, when she excitedly stopped me.
“There is something I must tell you,” she exclaimed. “In my dream last night someone told me that I did not have to sell bricks today. Nor do I need to worship Buddha or burn incense anymore. I was instructed to go to the market where I would meet someone that would save me and my family - That was you in my dream!”
She quit the Communist Youth League and the Young Pioneers, and repeatedly thanked me. I told her, “Dafa's Master saved you and your family. You should really thank our Master.”
Boy Sells All his Produce after Shouting “Falun Dafa is Good”
I saw a boy, who looked about 15-years-old, selling dried mushrooms near the market in the winter. He was shivering. The mushrooms were frozen, and no one was purchasing them.
I went over to buy some and to talk to him. During our chat he told me that he had joined the Young Pioneers. I asked him to quit and to silently repeat “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” The boy replied, “Why should I be quiet about it? After listening to what you said, I want to say it loud and clear.”
He began to shout, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” This attracted many people to his table, and he sold all of his mushrooms.
I saw the boy again the following Fall. He was much taller, and was no longer selling mushrooms. He was driving a truck to sell watermelons. I asked him if he recognized me.
He smiled and said proudly, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
No Need for a Cane Now
At a square near the market with many long benches, many people sit and clean the vegetables they purchased. I like to go and talk to the people there.
A retired official with a cane sat next to me one time. I told him about Falun Dafa. He accepted what I told him, and quit the CCP. He told me that he wanted to learn more about Dafa, and that there were two Dafa practitioners in his community who had been tortured by the authorities, and left disabled.
I was talking to an elderly lady at the square on another occasion, when that retired official saw me and sat nearby. When the lady and I started to leave, the retired official followed behind and then quickly passed us. I saw him walking without his cane and called to him, “Your leg has recovered. You have been rewarded since you did justice for Dafa.”
He excitedly exclaimed, “Falun Dafa is good! Thank you Dafa's Master!”
