(Minghui.org) I ran into a friend's husband, who is a long-time agent of the 610 Office. We had a really good talk about Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong), and I was surprised that he knew so much about the practice. He told me that, at the city’s 610 Office, everyone reads the Minghui website regularly, and they all know Falun Dafa is good.

The 610 Office is an extralegal agency created by Jiang Zemin, former leader of the Chinese Communist Party, on June 10, 1999 for the sole purpose of carrying out the persecution of Falun Gong. Branch offices were set up at each administrative level across the nation since its inception.

As soon as my friend's husband sat down next to me at a banquet, I knew I wanted to talk to him about Dafa. After we greeted each other and made some small talk, I cut to the chase.

“You know I'm a Falun Gong practitioner, right?”

“Yeah. I've heard.”

“How could you not know,” I said and chuckled. “I was reported to the city police a few years ago by my own boss.”

“Didn't he receive [karmic] retribution? He died at such a young age,” he said. “So did Li Dongsheng [former head of the national 610 Office].”

“Yes. How did you know?” I was surprised. “Zhou Yongkang [former head of the 610 Office], Bo Xilai [former governor of Liaoning Province and allegedly involved in harvesting organs from imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners] all received what they deserved. Many police officers who participated in the persecution received karmic retribution. Take it from me, don't get involved.”

I went on and told him about how I started in the practice, what the practice is really about, and why the persecution is wrong.

He said, “I never get involved in persecuting Falun Gong. I even protect practitioners whenever I can. One time, I was assigned to arrest a practitioner in Harbin. I caught the guy and told him to just sign the paperwork so he could be released and just pretend not to practice anymore.”

“That's still wrong. Think about it. If you're a good person and someone told me to say that you're bad and even got me to put it in writing that you're a bad guy, then am I a good person? In the old times, people would rather die than tell a lie, but nowadays people just don't care about doing the right thing anymore.”

He nodded, “True. That's true.”

“The Communist regime has had such a bad influence on the Chinese people and our thinking. People can't tell right from wrong, or goodness from evil.”

He said, “Well, it's okay that you practice at home. Just don't get together with others.”

I said, “We get together only to talk about the conflicts at home or arguments we had with someone, trying to figure out where we failed and the attachments that we still have. If it's our fault, then we discuss how we can do better next time. That's all.”

He said, “Oh, cultivation.”

I told him about the giant stone in Guizhou with the hidden characters, “the Communist Party of China shall perish” and why quitting the Communist Party can bring him peace and safety. I advised him not to take part in the regime's crimes. I told him how people practice Dafa all over the world and how people will be blessed or punished for their good and evil actions in the future.

We talked for a long time. At the end, he agreed to quit the Party. He said, “I found that many Dafa practitioners hold high status in society, like stationmaster, Secretary of the Discipline Inspection Sector, postmaster, and upper management positions in private companies.”

I asked him, “Who's your director at the city 610 Office?”

He said, “Don't worry about him. We visit the Minghui website every day and all know Dafa is good. Even if we didn't before, we all do now.”
