Awakening People to Falun Dafa at My Tea Shop
(Minghui.org) My name is Feng Lian and I am 74 years old. I live in a rural area and I started practicing Falun Dafa about two years ago.
Incurable Cancer Disappears
I started suffering from severe pain in my mouth in April 2011. Local doctors were not able to diagnose or treat my condition. I eventually sought advice from specialists at the Wuhan University Stomatological Hospital. I was diagnosed with advanced oral cancer. Unable to offer any treatment, the doctors sent me home with medication that cost over a thousand yuan.
My niece, who is a Falun Dafa practitioner, advised me to try practicing Falun Dafa. She said that amazing things could happen if I did. With nothing left to lose, I told my son, “Our family’s financial situation is not good. Don’t spend any more money on medicine for me. I will try to practice Falun Dafa.”
That day, I asked my husband, who also practices Dafa, to show me the exercises. When I meditated, I experienced complete calm and emptiness. The following morning, my body felt extremely light and walking was effortless. I was astonished!
My condition vanished within a week. Falun Dafa had done what so many hospitals and medical experts were unable to do! This was truly a miracle.
Sudden Ability to Read
Because I only attended school for one year, my education was limited and I was only able to recognize a few basic words. In order to learn the teachings of Dafa, I began attending a local Fa-study group. Initially, I sat in the back and listened while everyone else read. Three days later, the other practitioners suggested I try reading a few sentences. However, I was unable to read even the simplest words, and I gave up.
That day, I wept when I returned home while hugging a copy of Zhuan Falun. I said, “Master Li (the founder), I cannot read. How can I learn the teachings of Dafa?” The next day, Master magically projected the words in Zhuan Falun on the walls. Incredibly touched by Master's compassion, I spent the following month reading Zhuan Falun by myself at home. Whenever there was a word I could not understand, I asked my grandson for help.
A month later, local practitioners came to visit and asked me to rejoin their Fa-study group. They were amazed to hear me fluently reciting Zhuan Falun, and I explained how Master helped me to learn. My story greatly encouraged them.
Awakening People at My Tea Shop
As Dafa practitioners, it's our responsibility to clarify the facts and awaken sentient beings. At first, I rode my motorized tricycle to distant places with other practitioners in order to talk to people and distribute informational materials. Even though I managed to talk to a number of people, this arrangement was not the best for me.
One night, I had a dream. I sat on a high platform next to an elderly lady. Our platform overlooked an abyss and there was a ladder to the side leading upwards. When I woke up, I came to a sudden realization. There was no need to travel in order to clarify the facts. My tea shop was the perfect platform for it! I felt that I was being encouraged to talk to people about Falun Dafa near my home.
At first I talked to people who came to my shop about Dafa. I would serve them tea and chat with them before encouraging them to quit the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organizations. Many of my customers are elderly and are longtime Party members. Later, another practitioner named Ye came to help me. While one of us was talking to people, the other would send forth righteous thoughts to clear away interference. In this way, we managed to encourage an average of four to five people quit per day.
Later, when I recalled that dream, I realized that the elderly lady sitting beside me on the platform was Ye!
