Distributing Dafa Calendars
(Minghui.org) The 2018 Minghui Falun Dafa calendars were ready to be distributed. We saw that people who received the calendars were happy and grateful to get them.
Beautiful Calendar with Precious Content
When I passed a car parked on the roadside, I stopped and took a closer look. My first thought was that it looked expensive. Then, a woman and a little boy approached the car.
I greeted her with a smile and asked if she had seen this calendar. She had not seen it but thought that it looked beautiful. I told her I was giving them away and she asked if she could have one. When handing it to her, I told her that it was not only beautiful, but the content was precious.
She carefully took the calendar with both hands. She looked at me and commented about my healthy, good looks. I said, “It is because I practice Falun Dafa.” She was caught off guard and I could see that she did not know the truth about Falun Dafa. We chatted about Dafa and I helped her withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). I encouraged her to read through the calendar and use the link to look up more information online.
Practitioners Cannot Pick and Choose
I was walking home one day when I saw a poorly dressed handicapped man. I wondered if I should speak to him about Falun Dafa. Master's words hit me: “Saving people is just that, saving people, and to pick and choose would not be merciful.” (“Fa Teaching at the 2009 Greater New York International Fa Conference” from Teaching the Fa at the Conference IX)
After I approached him he told me that he used to work in a mine, but became handicapped after a car accident six months ago. I offered him one of my calendars. He was happy to take it. I told him the truth about Falun Dafa and he decided to withdraw his membership in the Young Pioneers. Then, I asked him to sincerely recite the words, “Falun Dafa is good,” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” which could improve his physical health and well-being.
I put the calendar in a plastic bag for him to carry home, and he thanked me.
Youthful Appearance Draws Interest
Another day I tried to talk to someone who who refused to listen. I was putting my calendar away when someone asked me if I was handing out calendars. She said that she could use one. However, after she glanced at the calendar she said, “Oh is that promoting Falun Dafa, never mind then.”
She walked away, but I caught up to her and talked about Falun Dafa. I explained why the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and Jiang Zemin, the former head of the Party, initiated the persecution of Falun Dafa. She was not interested.
I continued to chat with her and asked if she was close to retirement. She told me she had a few more years to go. I mentioned that I had retired about 10 years ago.
She stared at me and I realized that I had her attention, so I continued to clarify the facts to her, saying that this calendar was precious and encouraged her to go to the website to learn more about the practice and the persecution. This time, she was interested.
I also told her how important it was for her to quit the party, and she agreed. Before she walked on she said, “I would have never guessed your age.” I explained that Falun Dafa improves overall health and well-being, so I look and feel much younger than my age.
