Older Man Learns to Drive to Clarify the Truth
(Minghui.org) I have been cultivating in Falun Dafa since May 1996. I am 70 years old now, and for the past 20 years, I have not needed to take any medication. My health is very good.
My co-workers who are my age started selling their tools, thinking that they are getting old and would not need them anymore. I bought their tools and continue to use them.
When other practitioners need help, such as replacing a valve, installing closets, cutting steel pipes and so on, I pick up my wrenches, impact drills, cutting machine and other needed tools, go to their places and quickly complete the work.
I do not consider myself an old man. Whenever other practitioners refer to me as an “old man,” I correct them right away: “I am not an old man. I am a Dafa practitioner.”
I Started Driving as a Senior
To do more to validate the Fa, clarify the truth, and save more lives, I bought a car last year and learned to drive. Generally, family members are uneasy if someone starts driving in his 70s. However, I have driven the car about 12,400 miles since I got it, and the more I drive, the better my driving becomes.
I drove to a wedding ceremony in Mishan City. My brother’s grandson said to me, “At the age of seventy, you started driving. The older you get, the tougher you are!” I clearly know that Dafa re-created me. What I do and my outlook shows the goodness of Falun Dafa.
Going to Construction Sites to Spread the Facts
This summer I bought a large 30-liter cooler. I filled it with cold persimmons and baby cucumbers and drove to construction sites to tell people about Falun Gong and the persecution.
I saw two workers sieving sand; I told them, “Young men, please take a break and enjoy a cool cucumber.” While they were eating, I asked them, “What education did you receive? Did you join the Young Pioneers or the Youth League?”
One of them told me his name and that he had joined the Communist Youth League. The other one told me that he did not go to school and had not joined any of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) organizations.
I said to the first young man, “Please quit the Youth League; please remember Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. You will then have a good future.”
“Sure! Thank you!” he said without hesitation.
Two other men then came over; and I invited them to have cucumbers. They told me their names. They both agreed to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
And another pair of men came over. They wanted to cut a watermelon, but they did not have a knife. I lent them my knife and talked to them. They also agreed to quit the CCP’s organizations.
Saving Lives Everywhere
One day I saw a young construction worker waiting at a bus stop. I drove over to him and asked, “Where are you going? I can give you a ride.”
He replied, “Thank you. The bus is coming. I will take the bus.”
“Young man, please pay attention to your safety at construction sites,” I said. ‘We all have family to support, and life is not easy. Quitting the CCP and its affiliated organizations can ensure that you have a safe future. Did you join any of the CCP’s organizations?”
He told me he had joined the Youth League. I said to him, “Please quit the atheistic CCP and its organizations. If you do, you will have a peaceful life.” He agreed to do so. I then explained, “Atheism is a big lie. Those who have persecuted Falun Gong practitioners, regardless of their positions, are receiving retribution. Divine beings do exist.”
Another day, I saw a man pushing a bicycle on a bridge. I asked him, “Does your bike have a flat tire? I have an air pump you can use.”
“No, the tires are ok,” he said. “I am too tired to ride over the bridge.”
"Let me tell you something good then.” I explained to him about Falun Dafa and the persecution. Our talk was friendly, and he quit the CCP using his real name.
Sometimes I stop at roadside vegetable vendors. While buying their vegetables, I talk to the stall owners. I say, “I wish you success in your business! Did you ever join the CCP or its other organizations? If so, please quit them to ensure a safe future.”
One owner told me that he had joined the Communist Youth League. I told him, “Please remember that Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. The 'Tiananmen Square self-immolation' is a hoax the CCP created to deceive people. Don’t ever believe it.”
