(Minghui.org) Whenever I have visited my parents, who live in a village, I have heard many wonderful stories about Falun Dafa practitioners, which took place after the practice spread through the village in 1998.

Quiet Village Becomes Astir

At that time, a woman in a neighboring village learned Falun Dafa from her sister and taught it in the village after returning home. Many people became healthier and stronger through practicing Falun Dafa, and some people were forever cured of chronic diseases.

These miraculous events caused a sensation in the small village, and more villagers came to learn Falun Dafa. They later set up a Fa study group to study the main teachings of Falun Dafa, in the book Zhuan Falun.

The first miracle happened when a young woman suddenly began floating about two feet above the ground during the Fa-study session. She then continued to float in a circle around the courtyard.

Another amazing occurrence happened to a 70-year-old woman who had a bad temper and used to curse at others over trivial matters. Everyone was afraid of offending her. She always had difficulty breathing, her legs hurt, and she rarely worked in the fields.

After practicing Falun Dafa, she turned into a different person. She treated people nicely and gave others a hand when needed. Her body became stronger and stronger. At age 80, today she can walk swiftly like a young woman, and sometimes she is found working in the fields. The villagers know that Falun Dafa gave her a new life.

Another woman, age 50, who never went to school, was very anxious because others were able to read Falun Dafa books and she couldn't. She asked her grandchildren to teach her how to read and gradually learned to read Zhuan Falun fluently. After witnessing such a great change, her husband took the initiative to shoulder more housework to give her more time to study the Fa.

Her husband also benefited a lot from Falun Dafa. After the persecution began in 1999, her husband often rode a bicycle to transport her around to clarify the facts about Falun Dafa to the other villagers who had been harmed by the Chinese government’s lies about the practice.

Another villager, who was suffering from severe hepatitis, had not improved even a little after spending a lot of money on medical care at a hospital. His wife encouraged him to give Falun Dafa a try because she knew that many villagers had their diseases cured through practicing Dafa. Within two days, his skin became golden, looking very scary.

At first he was nervous, but he soon calmed down after a local coordinator explained to him that his body was being cleansed. He insisted on doing the exercises and studying the Fa. As expected, his skin soon became normal and rosy.

Many people in the village rushed to tell others how they had benefited from Falun Dafa.

The Power of Saying “Falun Dafa is Good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is Good”

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched its persecution against Falun Dafa in 1999. Some villagers went out to tell people the facts about Dafa, and some did not.

The practitioners who were steadier in their faith went out to clarify the facts about Falun Dafa to the rest of the villagers. They encouraged others to remember, “Falun Dafa is good,” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

One practitioner learned that her neighbor was suffering from water in the lungs. The man was lying in bed unable to sleep at night and was seeking medical help. The practitioner clarified the facts to him, encouraged him to withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations, and advised him to recite, “Falun Dafa is good,” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

Amazingly, the man could then sleep at night. His disease disappeared completely, and he could work normally like before. He now tells others that Falun Dafa and Master Li gave him a second life.

There was another villager who was suffering from liver cancer. His doctor suggested that he have surgery as soon as possible. But his family was very poor and unable to afford the operation. A Dafa practitioner visited his family and encouraged him and his wife to withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. He advised them to sincerely recite, “Falun Dafa is good.” This couple later started to study the Fa teachings together.

After a period of time, the man no longer felt any pain in his liver. He then went to the hospital for another X-ray. His doctor was surprised, and said, “Something must be wrong with images taken last time. Why can’t I find any cancer spots on these films? You are alright, and you can go home now.”

Falun Dafa is a Buddha School cultivation practice, and in a short time has spread to more than 100 countries and regions, attracting all ethnic groups and all kinds of people around the globe. It's time for the persecution to end, and for Falun Dafa to again be freely practiced in China!
