An Unusual Text Message
(Minghui.org) I am a farmer who feels fortunate to have found Falun Dafa. I have been studying the Fa, practicing the exercises, and sending righteous thoughts diligently. I also have a Fa study group at my home.
There was no Dafa material production site in our local area, as some practitioners thought they were too old and lacked the technical skills, some were detained in the persecution, some worked in other cities, etc. The local coordinator asked me to operate a Dafa material production site. Although I was in my late 50s, and was computer illiterate, I agreed.
Other practitioners helped me achieve computer literacy. While they explained, I listened and took notes. With their help, I was able to learn the rudiments of computer work and then became more literate as time went by. My Dafa material production site was relatively stable for years.
My sister found a cleaning job in the city for me in October 2015. The monthly salary was 1,700 yuan ($250 USD), which would be of great help, as I had financial difficulties. However, I worried about the Dafa material production site. Furthermore, if I took the job, I would lose a good cultivation environment, and there was no one to take over the site. As a Dafa disciple, I should not be attached to money. Cultivation was top priority, so I politely declined.
Every household was brightly lit for the 2017 New Year celebration. Meanwhile, three of us practitioners went out in the cold evening and distributed Dafa fliers in each neighborhood. When we completed the task and returned home, I saw a text message on my cell phone.
“You are the world's extraordinary cultivators,” it said. “Improve yourself diligently, and you will roar like the lions.”
My face was covered with tears. It was Master’s great compassion and encouragement that told me that our efforts during this Fa rectification are making a difference.
