Talking to People about Falun Gong While My Husband Was Hospitalized
(Minghui.org) My husband hired a driver to transport goods in March 2017. I got a phone call that morning from my husband, who said, “We just had an accident. Please come,” he said.
I went and saw the driver shaking with fear and covered in sweat. My husband's shoulder hurt and he couldn't move his left hand. A police officer arrived a while later. He kept the driver on the scene to document the accident, while my husband and the salesman who had accompanied the truck were taken to the hospital.
My husband had a fractured left shoulder. He is not a practitioner, but I have talked to him about Falun Gong many times. He did not complain about the accident. I explained to the salesman that I was a Falun Gong practitioner and would not give him or the company a hard time. He thanked me and we chatted about how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) had defamed Falun Gong, just as it had done to other groups during its previous political campaigns. He agreed and said he would like to quit the CCP's Young Pioneers that he had joined when he was younger.
The police officer came to see us. He said the driver's insurance company would pay for the medical expenses.
A Letter That Clarifies the Facts
When my husband was in the hospital, he shared a room with another patient. I talked with this patient and learned that he came from the same city as I did. When I asked him about Falun Gong, he repeated the slanderous propaganda that he had watched on television. I told him that those stories were fake and I shared my own experience of benefiting from the practice. He nodded and believed my words. I then handed him a letter printed on the Minghui website that clarified the facts about Falun Gong. He read the letter and said he liked it. I suggested he pass the letter on to his family and friends and he agreed.
I talked with him again two days later. He thanked me for the letter and we chatted further. I told him that I used to suffer from headaches, arthritis, and tuberculosis and that Falun Gong had cured all of them. He was interested and wanted to know more. I gave him a copy of Zhuan Falun and he seemed very happy.
He told me later that he had talked with his wife, son, and daughter. “All of them are willing to separate themselves from the CCP,” he said.
A College Student
Another patient came later and shared the room with my husband. He was a college student who had a bone fracture from a motorcycle accident. I chatted with him and he said he had read Falun Gong books before. I reminded him to continue reading the books and he agreed.
When I visited my husband the next time, the college student asked me where to find Falun Gong books. I gave him information on how to overcome the internet blockade and promised to find him more materials. I later brought him a USB drive with Falun Gong books and the exercise videos on it. He expressed his gratitude to have it.
From these experiences, I learned that many people are waiting for us to tell them more information about Falun Gong.
