(Minghui.org) Once, my sister and I came across an old man we used to know. We asked him how he was doing, and he told us about his unfortunate life.

He had four daughters and a youngest son, who was the golden boy of the family. The son lived with his parents after he got married. But one day, his wife left home after a bad fight and didn't come back for months. The son became depressed.

One night, he came home and went straight to his room. Half an hour later someone knocked at the old man’s door and told him that his son had jumped off the eighth floor of his building.

The old man and his wife rushed their son to the hospital and spent a tremendous amount of money just to keep him alive in a vegetative state. The doctor told them it would be a waste of money to try to wake him up and sent them home.

For two years the son was kept alive but didn’t recognize anyone and couldn't move. The couple, in their 70s, did nothing but attend to him all day. They lived on what little money they got from their daughters and government subsidies. The old man began crying as he finished his story.

My sister and I told him to recite the phrase “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good, Falun Dafa is good” and to ask Master Li to save his son. The old man didn’t quite believe us. We told him to try anyway and told him that his encounter with Falun Dafa was a good thing.

The old man had doubts about Dafa based on the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) propaganda that he had heard during the 19-year-long persecution. I told him that the persecution was based on lies and was started by former CCP head Jiang Zemin singlehandedly. I also told him that, despite the persecution, people still practice Falun Dafa because of its great health benefits. It is practiced by people in over 100 countries and the teachings have been translated into 40 languages.

I gave him two examples of Falun Dafa’s miraculous healing power.

A young girl in her 20s, Hua, was diagnosed with stomach cancer. She struggled for four years and spent a lot of money, only to have the doctor tell her that she needed to prepare for her funeral. A friend of Hua’s told me about her. I told the friend about Falun Dafa and suggested that he tell Hua and her parents to recite, “Falun Dafa is good.”

Six months later the friend told me that Hua had been discharged from the hospital and gained back a lot of weight. She even got herself a boyfriend.

A man in his 50s was diagnosed with terminal-stage sinus cancer at Shenyang Medical College Hospital. He exhausted all his savings, but nothing helped. His son told me the story and I told him about Falun Dafa and the persecution and helped him quit the CCP and its affiliates. I advised his father and the family to recite, “Falun Dafa is good.” Five months later, his father recovered and was able to get back to work.

Then I told the old man that he should go home and recite the phrase with his wife near their son. A week after, the old man told me that his son was able to recognize people and his eyes could follow people around. Two more weeks passed and his wife told me, “Our son can now eat liquid food and has his senses now.”

My sister and I went to see his son and advised him to recite the phrases in his mind and ask Master for help. He looked at us with his eyes wide open and raised his arm. He also moved one of his legs.

Two weeks later, I came across the elderly couple and they were no longer worried about their son – they worried now that his bone fractures were preventing him from walking properly. I still told them that they must have faith in Falun Dafa.

One day, the elderly couple came to my house with presents, wanting to thank me. I didn’t take anything and explained to them that Master Li taught us to only help without receiving money or gifts. I then told them to thank Master for everything.
