Learning the Truth Changed My Family
(Minghui.org) I live on a farm in Heilongjiang Province and I am 53 years old. Our family was deceived by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) propaganda and did not understand what Falun Gong was.
I Learn the Truth and Everything Changed
When I went out of town to do odd jobs, I came across several ladies in their 70s and 80s who practiced Falun Gong. They were energetic and warm—nothing like what we saw on television. They were kind and considerate and left me with a very good impression.
I suffered from many chronic ailments at that time—hyperthyroidism, gynecological problems, and dizziness. I had severe headaches and felt chronically weak. When I met those Falun Gong practitioners, I blurted out, “I want to exercise with you.”
Just like that, I began practicing Falun Gong. Shortly afterward, all my health problems were gone. I could not believe that I was illness-free. I am so grateful for Master and Falun Gong.
I was so excited to be practicing such a great way that I wanted to tell everyone in my family. But they were still deceived by the propaganda and refused to listen.
My Second Sister Understands the Truth
In February of 2017, my second sister was diagnosed with tuberculosis of the bones. She was not healthy to begin with, with a history of rheumatoid arthritis, hypertension, heart disease, several strokes, and kidney stones. An X-ray of her chest showed that her sternum was already black. She had not eaten well for two months and vomited constantly. She was dying.
She wanted to go to Beijing for treatment. My brother wanted to go with her to be treated for his stomach problem that was so severe that he could not work. I went with them to take care of them.
We purchased tickets for three seats together so my sister could lie down during the trip. Her complexion was almost black and she could not stop vomiting. Other passengers looked at us in disgust.
Her son was working in Beijing and found a hotel for us. We were all exhausted but could not sleep. My sister vomited all night long. The next morning, my brother went to the hospital for his stomach problem.
Looking at my dying sister, my heart was almost broken. “Look at you and look at our family,” I said. “Everyone seems to take turns in the hospital. Look at me now. I used to be just like that. Why don't you believe me about Falun Gong? I am your sister. Why would I lie to you?”
“What does one have to do to practice? What are the requirements?” she asked.
I told her that there was no requirement as long as she kept saying, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthful-Compassion-Forbearance are good.”
“Really? It’s that simple?”
“Yes,” I said.
I began to teach her word by word. Her son called to tell us that he could not schedule a doctor’s appointment for her that day and that we'd have to wait until the following day.
My sister continued to say the phrases and I let her listen to a recording of a practitioner's cultivation experience. She listened with concentration. I began to see a miracle right before my eyes. She was getting better minute by minute.
Soon my sister was able to sit up, and that afternoon she took a bath. Previously, she hurt all over and could not bear to have anyone touch her. Now she could put on her clothes by herself.
She told me that she felt better and better and exclaimed that Falun Gong was very good. She continued to listen to the experience sharing. As it got dark, she felt hungry. We went out to buy two bags of buns. She ate two and felt a little nauseous but did not vomit. We bought some strawberries. Around 10 p.m., I went to bed.
When I got up, the bun and all the strawberries were all gone. My sister had eaten them all; she was hungry and just wanted to eat.
She told me that she'd had a vivid dream in which a tall man appeared and took something off her wrist. She had rheumatoid arthritis and had two lumps on her wrist. That morning, she noticed the lumps were gone. I was excited that Master had taken care of her already.
When my sister later saw Master Li Hongzhi's picture, she realized that it was Master who had visited her that night. She was so happy and grateful. “I don't know how to thank Master,” she said. “He gave me a second life.”
When my brother saw how much she had improved, he immediately started to say the phrases “Falun Dafa is good. Truthful-Compassion-Forbearance are good.”
When we saw the doctor the next day, he diagnosed her with tuberculosis of the bone and prescribed many drugs. My sister said to him, “I have taken so many medications over the years and still almost died. I do not need any medicine, I will practice Falun Gong.”
Family Members Change Their View
When we got home a week later, everyone in the family was dumbfounded. How could a dying person become so healthy? When they learned that my sister did not get any treatment and only repeated the Falun Gong phrases, they were speechless. She told them it was the power of Falun Gong.
I could see what they were all thinking. Several days later, my youngest sister began practicing Falun Gong. She was another one who got better. She sent me a text message with a thumbs up.
When the husband of my second sister saw how she had improved, he changed his attitude about Falun Gong completely. He took the Falun Gong keepsake his wife had and put it in his pocket. Several days later, his symptoms of poorly-functioning kidneys improved. He could not stop saying, “Falun Gong is amazing! Amazing!”
My second sister's appetite improved, she gained eight pounds in three weeks, and her complexion became fair. Her lab results also improved greatly. Her doctor was shocked and asked what had happened. When she told him, he said that he's heard that Falun Gong had healing powers. He did not believe it before, but now he did.
Good things continued to happen in my family. My brother's stomach problems were resolved and he was able to work again. My youngest sister's allergies disappeared. Then my eldest sister also began saying the phrases.
We told all our relatives and friends that we had all been deceived by the CCP propaganda, that Falun Gong is the most honest and worthwhile practice. Falun Gong teaches people to be kind. We want everyone to learn the facts and not to miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We want others to benefit from Falun Gong like we did.
Thank you, compassionate Master. Thank you for your saving grace.
