(Minghui.org) I am 66 years old and retired. My wife has been been practicing Falun Dafa for over 10 years. I am not a practitioner, but I have benefited in various ways from her practice.

I would like to share some of my experiences.

My wife began to practice Falun Dafa in the second half of 1999, when the persecution had just begun and was very severe. The Chinese Communist Party's (CCP's) propaganda about Falun Dafa was frightening, and I strongly encouraged her to stop practicing. I even threatened to report her!

However, I began to notice changes in my wife. She no longer lost her temper or argued with me. When I became angry with her, she would not be upset and was still good to me. She was thoughtful and compassionate.

In two short years, my wife regained her health, and all of her diseases were gone. Our home was peaceful and happy!

I was no longer against her practice. I also read some literature explaining the facts about Falun Dafa. I then realized that the CCP was lying. I knew about the benefits of Falun Dafa from witnessing the improvements in my wife.

Not only did I support her, I also began to help her with Dafa projects. I printed pamphlets, burned CD/DVDs, made booklets, and helped her buy supplies.

Since youth I suffered from beriberi (vitamin B1 deficiency). Now, surprisingly, I had no more symptoms. The bumps on my face that I treated for years with no success also disappeared. My skin became smooth, and I looked younger.

I experienced other changes as well. After work, I would come home and indulge in alcoholic drinks; I was addicted. My wife read a section from Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa, regarding drinking and smoking. I believed it and no longer had the desire for alcohol.

I have also been protected from harm. I was walking outside when a car hit me from behind. A three-wheel bike next to me was also struck and flew across the road; the cast iron wheel was bent badly. However, I only suffered a scratch on my leg.

The driver was upset and insisted on taking me to the hospital for an exam. The examining doctor wanted me to have an x-ray, but I said I was fine and there was nothing wrong. Both the doctor and driver said they could tell I was a good person!

The driver was still worried and bought me medicine and also offered to give me some money. I refused and told him I knew it was not easy to make a living. I needed nothing and would not sue him.

I know that I was protected from harm because my wife practices Falun Dafa, and I support her. Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder and teacher of Falun Dafa, said:

“...with one person practicing, the whole family benefits...” (Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia)

Thank you Master. It's true that Falun Dafa is a righteous Fa!
