Two Fires, Two Different Outcomes
(Minghui.org) There have been many stories about people benefiting from quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and believing that Falun Dafa is good. Two incidents that happened in our area demonstrated how whether people are for or against Dafa can change an outcome.
Falun Dafa practitioners believe that good is rewarded and evil is punished. Therefore, we advise people to see through the CCP's deception, learn the truth about Dafa, and withdraw from the CCP and its youth organizations to protect themselves from future disasters.
Very Little Was Ruined By the Fire
A middle-aged woman lives in a village close to a hundred other households. She and her husband run a supermarket.
On her truck a few years ago, she found some leaflets with information about Falun Dafa and the CCP’s persecution of the practice. After she read one of the leaflets, she realized the importance of withdrawing from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
She phoned her uncle and asked him to help her husband, her daughter and herself withdraw from the Party.
Since then, whenever she receives information about Falun Dafa, she reads it and passes it on to others. She even helped distribute information to a few households in remote areas.
After some time, she asked a relative who practices Falun Dafa for a copy of Zhuan Falun, the main book of the practice. Out of respect, she wrapped the book in yellow cloth and placed it high up on a shelf in her warehouse. She read it whenever she had time. She did her best to follow the principles taught in the book. She is honest and treats people kindly. As a result, her business is doing well.
The young daughter of the warehouse owner lit mosquito-repellent incense in the warehouse during the summer of 2010 and went out to play. The little girl left the matches underneath the incense. When the matches caught fire, some items burned, but Zhuan Falun was intact.
The warehouse owner was able to extinguish the fire. When evaluating the damage, she noticed that only one meter from where the fire had started were three barrels of gasoline. Also close by were five boxes filled with fireworks, firecrackers, lighters and matches. If these had caught fire, it would have been a disaster.
They had worked very hard to build their store, which was over 300 square meters. The commodities in it were valued at 250,000 yuan and could have been burned to cinders. However, only a small amount of goods were ruined.
Everything was Burned to Ashes
A 42 year-old village official named Xu Wanfeng lived about 40 kilometers from my hometown. He persecuted Falun Dafa practitioners. As soon as he was appointed, he followed the CCP’s directives to slander Falun Dafa and harass practitioners. He ordered his subordinates to destroy Falun Dafa banners, leaflets, and anything else that pertained to Dafa. He refused to listen to any practitioners who tried to dissuade him.
Xu built a new house for his family with steel beams, brick walls, glazed tiles, and a solar water heater on the roof. He also bought many appliances.
In the middle of a cold, winter night, a fire broke out in the house. Xu woke up his 14-year-old daughter, his wife grabbed their 4-year-old son, and the family ran out of the house without their coats.
Xu shouted for help, but by the time the neighbors came, the house was engulfed in flames. It also was too late to get help from the fire department. People watched helplessly as the house and everything inside it burned down.
