Our Family Protects Dafa, Dafa Protects Our Family
(Minghui.org) My wife is a Falun Dafa practitioner and our entire family supports her practicing Falun Dafa. We help her when she clarifies the truth, and we all signed the petition supporting the movement to bring Jiang Zemin, the former head of the communist regime, to justice and end the persecution.
A Different Person
My wife used to complain about many chronic health issues, including migraines, heart disease, lung problems, and gynecological problems.
She would go straight to bed after coming home from work, and we had to walk on our tiptoes when she was trying to sleep, or she would get angry.
To improve her health, she not only spent a lot of money on doctors, treatments, and medication, but also visited temples to ask the divine for help.
Then she started to practice Falun Dafa in October 1995. Within three months, her health improved and her full recovery took about one year. Her recovery saved her employer and our entire family a lot of money from medical expenses.
Her temperament also improved. She used to be short-fused, bossy, and abusive. She was suddenly patient, calm, and tolerant. What’s more, after being incarcerated for seven years after numerous arrests and detentions, she was not even resentful.
From the tremendous positive changes of my wife's physical and mental health, we’ve witnessed the goodness and power of Falun Dafa.
Our entire family has read the Dafa informational materials, watched the Shen Yun DVDs, read the Nine Commentaries on the Chinese Communist Party, and read Dafa books. We are very respectful of Dafa and its founder, Master Li Hongzhi, and we will protect this cultivation practice.
When my wife went to Beijing to petition for the right to practice Falun Dafa, her brother and I moved all her Dafa materials to a safe place. When she was monitored, I helped her move to a safer house. When she was incarcerated, I demanded that the 610 Office and the brainwashing center release her.
People advised me to divorce her when she was sentenced to four years in prison in 2002. I made it clear to my friends and family that she had my full support.
My wife was harassed by local and state police in September 2015 for filing a lawsuit against Jiang Zemin. They demanded she come to the police station to sign some documents. I went instead with the lawsuit documents in hand and refused to sign anything. Instead, I told officer Sun how Dafa had changed her.
My brother-in-law was also very helpful. When his sister was monitored, he distributed Dafa materials in neighboring counties and villages. He also picked up any discarded Dafa materials. When he visited my wife in the brainwashing center, he would tell the staff how good Dafa was and that it was wrong to try and brainwash his sister. Because he did that, he was not longer allowed to visit her. But that did not stop him from bringing necessities to her.
When a couple from his village was held for practicing Falun Dafa in 2000, he went to the detention center and brought them daily necessities. After they were taken to a brainwashing center, he visited with care packages. He never stopped speaking up for Falun Dafa, and he told everyone the details about the persecution.
Rewarded for Supporting Dafa
My entire family has benefited from my wife’s practicing Falun Dafa. People tell me that I do not look like I am 81.
When our pressure cooker accidently fell, spilling hot porridge everywhere, I was not near the stove, which saved me from being burned. Another time, when my wife mistakenly put cleaning liquid into a pot of beans, my favorite food, I forgot to eat them. I thus avoided food poisoning.
Since my wife took up Falun Dafa, I have enjoyed very good health and have rarely fallen ill. But I was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2008 when my wife was held in a brainwashing center. When she was released, she told me to repeat, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and to listen to Master Li’s lectures. Within a short period of time, I was free of cancer.
I had high blood pressure in 2014, and nothing seemed to help. I started to do the Falun Dafa exercises in May 2015. Within less than a month, my blood pressure returned to normal.
Our children support us entirely. My son owns a business and is doing very well. Our grandchildren are healthy and a lot of fun to be around. My daughter told us that people are envious of her because her mother practices Falun Dafa and is in such good health.
My family members and I hope that more and more people will soon accept Dafa and benefit from their wise decision.
