(Minghui.org) When former communist party leader Jiang Zemin launched the persecution against Falun Dafa in July 1999, he claimed that the campaign would last no more than three months before Falun Dafa was eliminated. Over 19 years have passed, and practitioners nonetheless remain determined in their practice and continue to act according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.

Impressed by the righteousness and perseverance of practitioners, a large number of government officials, including those in the justice department, have stopped participating in the persecution. Some have begun to help or protect practitioners in their workplace. Drawn by the physical and spiritual benefits of Falun Dafa, quite a few of them have taken up the practice. In addition, there are practitioners who continue to remain steadfast in their belief throughout the suppression while working in various government agencies.

As the 2019 Chinese New Year is coming, these practitioners and supporters express their gratitude to Falun Dafa and wish its founder Mr. Li Hongzhi a Happy New Year.

A government officer in Jilin Province wrote, “Falun Dafa is special to me because it teaches me moral principles and integrity. My health improved significantly while my mind was uplifted.” This practitioner said that he is fortunate to follow the righteous way of Falun Dafa and is very thankful for Master's salvation. He hopes that more people could learn the facts about Falun Dafa and receive blessings for a better future.

Practitioners in the justice department of Beijing said that they cherish Falun Dafa because they can feel Master's compassion and care. “Master Li has offered salvation to us and purified our mind and body. Our life was renewed and we will remain diligent as practitioners. We hope that more people will come know what Falun Dafa is and benefit from it like us.”

Practitioners in Jilin Province government agencies wrote, “Another year has passed and we practitioners are thankful for the guidance and blessings from Master. Our gratitude is beyond words and we will continue to be diligent in our cultivation practice. Thank you Master and have a Happy New Year!”

Practitioners in Fushun City, Liaoning Province, contributed a poem:

Never Forgotten

Never forgotten was the happiness when first reading Zhuan Falun,Never forgotten was the joy hearing the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance;Never forgotten was purification of body and mind by Falun Dafa,Never forgotten was the calling out of “Falun Dafa is good” at Tiananmen Square.

Year after year Master takes care of us, sacrificing for sentient beings,Year after year more people wake up in the maze and find their path;Year after year Falun Dafa helps to bring back traditional values to the chaotic society,Year after year the communist party is closer to its fate after the massive calamity.

New Year comes, we practitioners celebrate from our heart,New Year comes, we practitioners are grateful to Master and Dafa;New year comes, we continue following Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance,New Year comes, welcoming a new world and brighter future.
