My Husband's Amazing Change of Heart
(Minghui.org) I'm a 69-year-old housewife. Before I began practicing Falun Dafa in 1997, I had multiple diseases, including tachycardia, tinnitus, arthritis, gastric ulcer, and piles. I bled heavily every few months. Despite all the medicines I took, my health did not improve. After I practiced Falun Dafa, all these health problems were gone.
My husband was a government employee before he retired. After the former head of the Communist Party Jiang Zemin launched the persecution in July 1999, my husband did everything possible to stop me from practicing. As soon as I began meditating, he would beat me. One time, he beat me for so long that he was exhausted. However, I didn't feel any pain. He finally stopped when I cried, “Stop!”
I tried to do the exercises when he wasn't around. I was determined to continue my cultivation no matter how he treated me. My life was saved by Falun Dafa, so I would not give it up!
As I continued to practice, my health and outlook on life kept improving. Even though my husband saw the positive changes in me, he wouldn't listen to me and blindly followed along with Jiang's persecution policy. He kept beating me and even threatened to divorce me. As he continued to abuse me, his health began deteriorating.
In 2009, he had a stroke and became bedridden. His mouth became crooked, and he drooled uncontrollably. Even sitting was hard for him. None of the medical treatments he received helped, and he was miserable.
I told him, “Master Li [the founder of Falun Dafa] is the only one who can save you. If you could repeat 'Falun Dafa is good' and 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance is good,' Master can help you.” He finally listened to me and repeated these words every day. His condition improved slowly. His mouth straightened, and his complexion improved. After experiencing the benefits of Falun Dafa in person, he truly believed in Falun Dafa and finally understood why I refused to give up my cultivation.
My husband had three dreams about Master. In one dream, Master wore a yellow kasaya, and his expression was very compassionate. My husband knelt down in front of Master and begged Master to save him. Master took his hands and said, “My child, you will be fine.” When my husband told me about this dream, I was happy for him.
My husband is very grateful to Master and Dafa. He listens to the recordings of Master's lectures and has watched the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and other DVDs. He is frequently moved to tears as he listens to them.
He no longer has high blood pressure, and he can take care of himself. Several elderly people we know passed away shortly after they fell and broke their bones. My husband is 84. He has fallen several times but is fine. He even walks to the park every day. He tells everyone he meets, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance is good! Falun Dafa's Master has saved me! Master is great!”
He is now very supportive when I study Dafa books and tell other people about the persecution. He is very happy to see practitioners when they come to visit us. One day, he tearfully asked a practitioner, “When will Master Li come back to China? I want to see him!” I was very touched.
No words can describe how grateful I am to Master.
