(Minghui.org) I would like to document how Falun Dafa saved my sister's life—twice.
My sister's health had been bad since she was young. Every winter, she could not work as she often coughed and had difficulties breathing. In the early summer of 1998, she developed severe allergic asthma. She went for the most comprehensive medical exam and the results showed that she was allergic to almost everything.
Her husband brought her to Beijing 301 Hospital for treatment after three hospitals in Tangshan City refused to treat her. However, when the Beijing 301 Hospital heard about her condition, they said that it could not be treated.
My sister completely lost hope.
During that time, she often had to hug a pillow and sit upright in bed to sleep because if she tried to lie down, she couldn't breathe. Plus, the medicine that she took made her gain a lot of weight. She suffered like this every day, and my parents and her parents-in-law often cried together with her.
Out of options, she accepted my suggestion to practice Falun Dafa and was miraculously cured in less than a week!
The power of Falun Dafa amazed her family, friends, and everyone in the village. They witnessed someone near death return to good health after practicing Falun Dafa. After that, several other people started practicing it, too.
A year later, after Jiang Zemin and his regime started to persecute Falun Dafa, the police arrested my sister and accused her of being an organizer.
She was illegally detained, fined, beaten, taken to a brainwashing center, and was even paraded through the streets in handcuffs. She then went through a divorce and then the death of her ex-husband. All the suffering caused tremendous changes in my sister's family. Because she had no money, she went to another province to work to support her son who was still in school.
She first worked at a construction site and then became a nanny in the city. Due to the persecution and the pressure from the hard physical work, she gradually lost the environment to study the Fa and do the exercises. Despite this, she was still in good health for 10 years and could work as hard as a young man.
However, in 2010, after my sister had given up on practicing Falun Dafa, severe asthma symptoms re-appeared and she was admitted to the hospital. She went back to work after her symptoms subsided a little but was re-admitted every spring and summer.
In 2014, my sister got married again, then accidentally got pregnant. Her parents-in-law were overjoyed but my sister was troubled. The doctor had warned her that, because of her age (she was 43) and her health, she shouldn't have another child.
She was in a dilemma because her husband is an only child and he did not have a child from his previous marriage. Moreover, his parents had been hoping for a grandchild.
My sister called me and said tearfully that she did not know what to do. I told her, “Practice Falun Dafa! Only Master can help you! Only Dafa can bring hope and blessings to your family!”
Once again with no other option, she started practicing Dafa again. She listened to recordings of Master Li Hongzhi's audio lecture, read the main text Zhuan Falun, and did the exercises faithfully. When she went for her prenatal check-up, everything was fine.
On May 25, 2014, she went to the hospital for a C-section. When the baby was brought out of the delivery room, her husband and his mother were smiling from ear to ear. I was also very excited and told them, “Express your thanks to Falun Dafa! If she didn't practice Falun Dafa, there would be no guarantee of her good health, much less this child!”
Her husband was filled with emotion as he looked at his adorable child and thought back to one year ago when we were all at the hospital with my sister. She was in such pain then, and no one could help her.
My brother-in-law, who is a few years younger than my sister, is very kind. At that time, I had tried to persuade him to divorce my sister, explaining that, due to her bad health, she would not be able to give him any children. Gazing at this new life, we could barely believe it.
I knew deep in my heart that Master had given them this child. Thank you, Master, for your boundless compassion!
My nephew is almost three years old now and is very healthy and clever. He often listens to Master's lecture recordings with his mom and sometimes tries to imitate her when she does the exercises. He looks so cute.
I happened to separately run into three relatives of a patient who was in the same hospital room as my sister. We used to see each other often and had become very familiar.
The moment they saw me, they told me that the patient had passed away not long after being discharged. When they asked after my sister, I said that she had recovered completely after practicing Falun Dafa and had even had a baby. They exclaimed, “That is incredible! Falun Dafa is miraculous!”
Falun Dafa's principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance have lit up our souls and dispelled the suffering. Thank you, Falun Dafa! Thank you to our compassionate and revered Master—Mr. Li Hongzhi!
