From Being Rejected to Being Appreciated
(Mingui.org) The market is often a good place to talk to people about Falun Dafa. Sometimes the people we save are the very ones who previously pushed us away.
While shopping in a market, I saw a woman selling corn. She looked like she was in pain. Feeling for her, I asked why she looked so distressed. She said she had severely injured her back in a fall. I told her about Falun Dafa and said that she could recover if she remembered,“Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
Her temper flared and she stopped me right away. She said, “Mind your own business,” and indicated I should leave. I stayed calm and explained that I was trying to help her. She would not listen, so I walked away.
I returned to the market the following week. Someone patted me on the back. I looked around and saw that same lady, only she was smiling.
“I finally found you,” she said. “I want to thank you.” I was puzzled.
“With my back hurting, I could not sleep,” she said. “It was unbearable. I then thought of you telling me to remember 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' So I gave it a try. I repeated it again and again, and it worked. My back stopped hurting and I fell asleep. I did not feel any back pain the next day; it was as if I’d recovered completely. It was indeed incredible, and I am grateful to you.”
I was happy to hear what she said. Our Teacher is always benevolent, so I told her to thank the Teacher of Falun Dafa.
Our conversation also attracted people around us. They were also happy for her. They witnessed the wonder of Dafa, and I told them more about Falun Dafa and distributed flyers to them. I helped them all to quit the Chinese Communist Party.
