Falun Dafa Changed Me and My Brother
(Minghui.org) I was weak as a child, often had a fever, could not sleep well, and lacked energy. Ailments continued to plague me as a teenager, and I had no will to live.
I began to practice Falun Dafa in 1996. This good fortune changed my life completely. All of my health problems disappeared. I was once difficult and arrogant, but then I became considerate of everyone. My relatives saw how I changed and understood the truth about Falun Dafa. Some of them also began to take up the practice.
My Younger Brother Ends Up in Prison
My brother picked up many bad habits when we were growing up. He was convicted of a crime and sentenced to 10 years in prison. My relatives all thought he got what he deserved and stopped caring about him.
I did not give up on him, however, and sent him letters in prison explaining how good is rewarded and evil incurs retribution. I encouraged my brother not to give up on himself and also helped him financially.
My brother was released after serving only six years. Unfortunately, he picked up some bad habits in prison. He was a bully, but I continued to help him both spiritually and financially because I lived by Dafa's principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
He married a year later. When I went to see my mother, he was there and was rude to me. I did not argue with him.
When my sister-in-law had a cesarean section, my brother was called away on business. I took care of my sister-in-law and her baby in the hospital. I cleaned the room, paid the bills, and bought her medicine. The doctor said she was cared for better than anyone else in the hospital.
My Brother Finally Understands
When I visited my mother during the Chinese New Year, she said that my brother and his wife had told her I helped them out and was very nice.
I then asked them if they would be willing to sue Jiang Zemin, the former head of the Chinese Communist Party who began the persecution of Falun Dafa. My sister-in-law said they would and followed through.
When my brother heard someone bad-mouthing Falun Dafa, he told them, “Those who practice Falun Dafa are good people. They are not committing any crime. You cannot believe what you see on TV.”
During the 2017 Chinese New Year, my brother put a small “Falun Dafa Is Good” sticker on his car. He once took the deputy chief of police to dinner, and the chief was surprised to see my brother's public support of Falun Dafa.
My brother said to him, “Did you see what happened to those officers in Henan Province? They received retribution because they persecuted good people who practice Falun Dafa. You should be careful to treat practitioners well. You have your family to consider!”
