My Niece: A Flood Bypasses My House
(Minghui.org) The 2020 summer floods in China have left more than 200 people dead or missing and caused $25 billion in direct damage. But my niece told me that although the house next to hers was flooded, her house stayed intact. The flood bypassed her house.
My niece told me this amazing miracle when she visited me during her vacation in October.
My niece's house is about a hundred meters away from a main street. There are many houses along the street, and the street surface is a little higher than the level of her first floor.
In July and August, there were a few days of torrential rains. The rain poured down from the sky, the wind knocked down trees, and the river overflowed its banks. Water spread rapidly in all directions.
One rainy day when her elderly neighbor was taking a mid-day nap, he was suddenly woken up by a boom: the flood had rushed down from the main street, broke down his front door, and gushed into his house. He dashed out of his house and ran to higher ground. All he could do was to stand there and watch his house being submerged.
At the same time, my niece was standing on the second floor of her house recording what had happened. She showed me the videos: “Look, everywhere is flooded. Houses, trees, farmlands are all underwater. Furniture is floating and livestock is struggling. It's really horrible and shocking.”
Then she told me that she assumed her first floor must be flooded as well. She went downstairs to check. Amazingly, there was no water on the first floor. She looked down the hallway and in the back of the house. No water! She was wondering what had happened, and then she realized it must be because she often sincerely recited the auspicious words, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She must have been blessed.
Actually, over 10 years ago, I told my niece and her family how wonderful Falun Dafa is and how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) brutally persecutes Falun Dafa practitioners. All her family members quit the CCP and its associated organizations. I also gave them each a keepsake and told them that they would be blessed if they sincerely recited, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” They truly believed it, and they were indeed blessed.
