(Minghui.org) I see that people in mainland China continue to awaken to the need to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations.

Taxi Driver Helps His Family Withdraw from the CCP 

I met a professionally dressed taxi driver who could influence others in a positive way. He became talkative when I mentioned Falun Dafa. He told me he saw practitioners doing the exercises when traveling abroad, and he apparently had some understanding of the practice. He mentioned he utilizes software to circumvent the CCP's Internet blockade, so the Party’s slanderous propaganda had little effect on him.

I mentioned the issue of quitting the CCP, but he did not think it was relevant to him. When I made it clear to him what an open declaration of withdrawal would mean to someone, he told me he had joined the Youth League and wanted to quit.

What troubled him was that the software he used to get around the Internet blockade had stopped working. He thanked me but declined my offer to submit his withdrawal online and said his son would help him resolve the issue. I later received a message from him; he was able to upgrade the software and submit his withdrawal on the Epoch Times website. He also did the same for his entire family. 

A Chance Encounter in a Subway Station 

I happened to see an elderly woman stuck in a gate at a subway station. There were few staff in the station, and the people hurrying through did not pay attention to her. After I helped her through the gate, she told me this was her first time in the city.

I checked her travel route and saw we were going the same way. While walking with me, she said that God had told her something significant would happen that day. She then recited a passage from the Bible. I told her I practice Falun Dafa and that practitioners practice five sets of exercises and abide by the universal principles of “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.” I also mentioned how the CCP staged the Tiananmen self-immolation incident to incite hatred against Dafa. She said she understood that Falun Dafa practitioners are good people and lead noble lives.

The subway was noisy. When we neared her stop, she said she agreed that the CCP is evil. I explained, “When people join the CCP, the Youth League, and the Young Pioneers, they take an oath to give their lives to it. And since you already believe in God, you should nullify the oath by quitting the CCP.”

She immediately understood and asked me to help her withdraw from the Youth League she once joined. Before parting, I told her, “It would be wonderful if you could encourage your Christian friends to quit so they, too, can have a fresh start in life!” She agreed.

A Sour Wild Plum

As I passed through the dense woods one day, a clearing revealed I was on the top of a mountain. “These wild plums are not ripe yet. They are a bit sour.” The voice was from a middle-aged man picking small green plums. “Taste it.” He handed one to me before I could refuse. His complexion was a bit dark, and his eyes were stern.

He glared at me and took a seat on a bench. I joined him and listened to his story on the toughness of life. I raised the subject of Falun Dafa. He said there were people practicing Dafa in his village. He had been away from his hometown working for some time. I told him the facts about the persecution, and he mentioned he had once joined the Young Pioneers. He agreed, without hesitation, to submit his withdrawal from the CCP.

This whole encounter was initiated by a sour plum!

There are many ways the truth has spread over the years. Many people also know the benefit of withdrawing from the CCP. We just need to do a better job of giving them the proper means and channels to quit the CCP.

When I behold the joy people express after they quit the CCP, I feel inspired to cultivate more diligently and encourage others.
