(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners have worked tirelessly over the past 19 years to help people understand what Falun Gong is, and in recent years, why withdrawing from the Chinese Communist Party will bring them a better future. Many of those who decided to distance themselves from the CCP expressed their gratitude for the practitioners' efforts, and expressed their own happiness at having made this decision. Here are a handful of anecdotes from Toronto.

Visiting Scholar from the Chinese Academy of Sciences: Thanks to Your Teacher!

Mr. Liu, a visiting scholar from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, told a Falun Gong practitioner that people in China had to break through the Internet blockade to see information from overseas. He also mentioned that he knew that the Tiananmen Square self-immolation was staged.

He talked for a long while and asked many questions. After learning the significance of quitting the communist organizations, Mr. Liu said, “Please help me quit! How can I thank you?” The practitioner said, “No need to thank me. You can thank my teacher [Mr. Li Hongzhi] instead.” Mr. Liu said, “Yes, thanks to your teacher!”

Postdoctoral Researchers at the University of Toronto: You Are the Hope of Our Nation!

Mr. Li and Ms. Liu are postdoctoral researchers at the University of Toronto. They spent over an hour talking with a Falun Gong practitioner. The practitioner told them about the Self-Immolation Hoax, the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) crimes of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners, and the significance of quitting the communist organizations. They listened attentively and asked many questions. They were shocked by what they learned and decided to quit the communist organizations.

The Falun Gong practitioner told them, “I hope you will share the information with your families and bring them safety as well.” Ms. Liu gave the practitioner a hug and said, “Many thanks! You have changed my views today. I finally learned what has happened. You are the true heroes and the hope of our nation!”

Chinese Lady Thanks Falun Gong Practitioner with Gesture of Respect

Another lady named Liu, who had come from China to visit her family members in Toronto, listened to a Falun Gong practitioner introduce the issues. She said, “Thank you so much for telling me! I'm not a member of the Communist Party. They didn't allow me to join because of my family background, but I have been a member of the Young Pioneers since I was young. Please help me withdraw from it.”

She left but turned around after taking a few steps. Pressing her hands in front of her chest, she said sincerely, “I thank you very much! You have told me many things I didn't know.”

Shanghai Municipal Government Official: Thank You for Giving Me a Great Choice!

A Shanghai municipal government official and his wife saw Falun Gong practitioners at a tourist site. When a practitioner talked to them, the wife tried to pull her husband away, but he insisted on listening to the practitioner. During the conversation, the official learned about Falun Gong, and quit the communist organizations that he had joined. He said to the practitioner, “Thank you for giving me a great choice!” He also accepted truth clarification brochures and praised the practitioner, “It's so nice of you! It's marvelous!”

Businessman: This Is the Sixth Time I’ve Heard about It. Yes, Please Help Me Quit.

Mr. Wang, a businessman from Shandong Province, asked Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Zhang many questions about Falun Gong. After getting his questions answered, Mr. Wang said, “I enjoy traveling. I have seen Falun Gong practitioners everywhere in Asia, Europe, and North America. This is the sixth time that I have talked to someone about Falun Gong. I couldn't make a decision about quitting the Communist Party before, but now I have realized your good intentions and sincerity. Yes, please help me quit. I appreciate your work from the bottom of my heart!”

Military Official: You Should Quit It! The Communist Party Cheats and Murders People!

Ms. Shan, an immigrant from China and former Chinese military official, met a Falun Gong practitioner in Chinatown a couple of years ago and decided to quit the communist organizations.

She saw Falun Gong practitioners again in Chinatown and told the practitioner that she was very clear about the wickedness of the CCP. “It never kept the promises we got when we retired from the military. You simply can't believe the CCP.” She then came by again with a friend. When a practitioner told her friend about Falun Gong and quitting the CCP, Ms. Shan chimed in, “You should quit it! The Communist Party cheats and murders people!”
