People Are Waiting to Learn the Facts about Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I have been giving out Falun Dafa desk calendars for the past several months and noticed that people are waiting for us to tell them about Dafa and the persecution.
Young Woman Quits the Party
I once met a young woman who was going to distribute fliers at a residential building. I handed her a calendar and said, “This is a Falun Dafa desk calendar with information about the practice. I hope you will read it. Knowing the facts will help you distinguish good from evil, so you may have a bright future.”
I also told her the facts about Dafa and the importance of quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations. She listened attentively and said that she was willing to quit the CCP Youth League and the Young Pioneers.
Elderly Woman: "I'm not afraid"
I met two women at a bus station—an older woman in her 70s and a younger one. I started talking with the older woman since she seemed friendlier. The young, pale woman kept a distance from me, so I did not talk to her. A thought then popped into my head, “She looks mean. I better not talk to her about Dafa (so she doesn't report me to the police).”
I immediately realized the thought was interference and I eliminated it. I readjusted my thought and took out two calendars to give to each woman. The younger woman did not want it and turned her head.
The older woman took the calendar and said, “This is a Falun Dafa calendar. It's exactly what I have been looking for. I will take it because I'm not afraid of the police.” She put the calendar in her bag and listened to me tell her the facts about Dafa. She agreed to quit the CCP.
Calendar Brings Good Health and Happiness
Unlike previous years, I have been running into people who ask me for the calendars. In a residential area an elderly woman shouted, “Stop!”
“Don't you remember me?” she said. “I see you all the time. You give me a Dafa calendar every year. Are you not going to give me one this year?”
I then gave her the last calendar in my bag. She held my hand and said excitedly, “I love reading the information on the calendar. The stories are very touching. I read them every night before bed and never get tired of reading them over and over again. I would rather read the information and stories on the calendar than watch television.”
She said that her body feels comfortable and all the pain and fatigue disappear when she is reading. She can also sleep better.
Before we parted, she said, “Please make sure to save me a calendar in the future!”
Another time, an elderly neighbor was sitting outside her home when she saw me. She said, “I was going to ask you for a calendar.”
I have talked to her about Dafa and told her many cultivation stories. She likes to listen to them very much. I make sure I give her a calendar every year.
I immediately went home and got a calendar for her. She held it close to her chest and said with a big smile, “The children drawn on the calendar are so cute! I forget about my troubles when I look at them. I feel as though I am a kid myself and am playing with them. I even woke up from my dream laughing. I no longer felt as lonely as before.”
Neighbors Ask for Calendars
For a few years now, I have been giving calendars to the neighbors in the nearby buildings.
A neighbor once told me, that I should consider my safety more, as a person once threw away the calendar that I gave her and another said bad things behind your back.
Hearing this, I realized that I needed to be considerate when giving out the calendars and not waste Dafa resources. I should also be responsible for my cultivation and not let people commit crimes against Dafa.
Sometimes, neighbors would come to my home to ask for the calendars for themselves, their children or their relatives. I always took these opportunities to talk to them about Falun Dafa.
People Wait in Line for the Calendars
I once visited Siu (alias) who is 75-years-old. She has kyphosis, where her upper back is curved at a 45-degree angle. When she goes out to talk to people about Dafa, she uses a bicycle to support her when she walks. She teams up with Li (alias) who is 66 years old.
Every week at home, they would put together a packet that included informational materials about Falun Dafa, the persecution, and a Dafa calendar.
They would then bring the packets to a busy market and set up their “booth” that consisted of placing a notebook and pen next to the packets. To get people's attention, they would start singing Dafa songs.
People would soon surround them and Siu would tell them, “Those who want to quit the CCP, please sign your name in this notebook. You can use your real name, a nickname or an alias. After you sign the notebook, please pick up a packet.”
A line would quickly form and not long, all the materials were gone. There would always be people still waiting in line even though the informational materials were gone.
Siu and Li have been distributing materials this way for many years. Siu said, “I am disabled. Unlike practitioners who can easily walk or bike to many places to talk to people about Dafa, I can only do it this way. Besides righteous thoughts and righteous actions, everything we do rely's on Master Li's protection.” She then handed me a list of names (around 100) who have quit the CCP.
I am thankful that the Minghui website created Dafa calendars for us to distribute, thus making it convenient for us to tell people the facts. This effort has increased the precious opportunities for people to understand the truth about Dafa.
