Entire Family Benefits When One Member Practices Dafa
(Minghui.org) I am a farmer. My wife has practiced Falun Dafa since 1996, and our family has benefited greatly from her cultivation path.
After she began to practice Falun Dafa, we witnessed that her temper and her attitude toward my parents began to improve.
My wife took care of my parents when they were ill and dying. I have four siblings who did not contribute. She did everything for them, and never complained. There were no arguments or bad feelings. My brothers and sisters noticed her compassion and said to me, “Falun Dafa is wonderful.”
My Wife Helped Me to Be Honest in Doing Business
My wife not only treated my family members well, she also taught me to be honest. We are in the concrete business. I delivered some concrete to a privately-owned steel factory in the winter of 1997. The owner accidentally overpaid me by 2,900 yuan. That amount was roughly an average factory worker's wages for 14 months. I was excited and told my wife about it.
“Our Teacher said - no loss, no gain,” she told me. “We cannot keep this money; we must be honest. Please return it to him right away.” I was not happy about her request.
She shared with me Dafa’s principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Eventually I had to agree with her. I drove to the home of the owner of the steel factory to return the money. He immediately cut me off and said that he had paid me enough. After I told him that he'd overpaid me and that I was returning the money to him, he said, “What a good person you are!”
I responded, “It's my wife who is the amazing one, not me. She practices Falun Dafa and told me that a person needs to have integrity in doing business. She told me I should return the overpayment.”
He was touched and called my wife to thank her. He told her, “Falun Dafa practitioners are wonderful! I will continue to do business with you.”
After Jiang Zemin, the former head of the communist regime, began to persecute Falun Dafa, in 1999, this business owner again called my wife and said, “Why is such a good practice being forbidden? Rest assured, I support you and will continue to do business with you for my concrete needs.”
Teacher Watches Over Practitioner
With my wife practicing Falun Dafa, our family was happy, business was good, and my family was protected.
I went to another village to deliver concrete. On my way home, the steering wheel on my tractor was not working correctly. I was on a busy road so I drove as safely as possible. As I approached our vendor stand, even my wife noticed that there was something wrong with the tractor. She mentioned it to others and they came over to take a look.
The tractor stopped, and, feeling stressed, I rested my head on the steering wheel before getting down. I got off the tractor and the steering wheel fell off.
My wife and I were shaken. She asked me how I'd managed to drive home on a tractor in such condition. I had no idea. My wife said, “As our Dafa Teacher said, '...with one person practicing, the whole family benefits.' (Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia). Teacher is watching over us at all times.”
Rain Waited Until Job was Completed
At another time, Teacher protected my concrete, otherwise I would have suffered great financial loss. I was transporting a tractor load of concrete from the factory to a construction site, about five miles away. As soon as I left from the concrete plant, the sky became dark, and a storm was brewing. I wondered what to do. I had 5 tons of concrete on my tractor with no cover. If it got wet the construction company would not pay me and I would have to take a big loss.
I remembered to ask for help from Teacher. So, I said out loud,“Master Li Hongzhi, please help me deliver this concrete safely before any rain falls.” The dark cloud was above my head, however, no rain fell. I arrived at the construction site and unloaded the concrete. Only after I was completely done did the rain begin to fall. Teacher helped me.
People Must Learn the Truth about Dafa
Dafa stories are truly amazing. As the family member of a practitioner, I know from personal experience that as long as one believes in Dafa, Teacher will protect you.
I have benefited a great deal from Dafa. Thus, I have been supportive of my wife practicing Dafa. In addition, I have also donated money to the material printing site, so practitioners can make more Dafa materials. It is important for people to know the facts about Falun Dafa.
