Stories of Saving People During the Coronavirus Epidemic
People Change Their Attitude
By a Falun Dafa practitioner in Hubei Province
I live in Hubei Province which is the epicenter of the coronavirus.
I went out several times recently and noticed that roadblocks were set up on all the roads between villages as well as street entrances. Only pedestrians or people on bicycles were allowed to pass. Checkpoints were set up on all the main roads. Policemen and guards with red bands on their arms can be seen patrolling everywhere. Messages are continually broadcast announcing the “Don't Do Rules" (such as “Don't gather”). Only one person from each household is allowed to go out shopping every other day. The atmosphere is oppressive and filled with terror.
Very few pedestrians are on the streets. Almost everyone wears a mask. Occasionally a person can be seen on a roof trying to get some fresh air. In the countryside, people still work in the fields or sit in front of their houses.
When I go out to clarify the truth, I walk or ride my bicycle. I wear a mask in order to look like everyone else.
From my experience in the past few days, many people quickly accepted the truth about Falun Dafa and kept repeatedly thanking me.
Unfortunately, some people refused to listen. I usually tell them, “I only wish the best for you. If you can't accept what I've said, then just ignore it.”
As soon as I say this, most peoples' attitudes change and they accept thetruth- clarification materials.
Eliminating Human Attachments and Saving More People
By a Falun Dafa practitioner in Hebei Province
I've been talking to people about Falun Dafa and the persecution for 10 years, especially during holidays. This Chinese New Year with the coronavirus spreading rapidly, people were frightened and most dare not go outside. The streets were deserted.
I wondered if I should still go out. My daughter kept telling me not to go out since this virus is very serious.
But how could I stay at home? Although I've been clarifying the truth face-to-face every day for 10 years, the number of people I've saved is still very tiny; there are 1.4 billion people in China. Remembering my mission, I put on a mask and went out. That day I helped 4 people quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
One evening, my daughter again urged me not to go out. “Don't go out tomorrow!” she said before heading to her night shift at work
At first, I thought, okay, maybe I should comply with the situation and stay home for a few days.
In the morning after I did the exercises, I thought: “I must go out. I must go and save more people.” I started to send righteous thoughts to clear away any negative elements. My husband didn't say anything as he knew nothing would stop me from going out to save people.
I thanked Master for strengthening me! When I returned home at around 10:30 a.m., my daughter wasn't upset. She simply asked, “What did you buy?” I showed her the fruit I bought on the way back.
I went out every day. One day I helped 8 people to quit the CCP. The following day 9 agreed to quit. In my understanding, we are Dafa disciples during the Fa- rectification. We are not ordinary people. We have our mission. As long as we go out, Master will bring predestined people to us so we can save them. We only need to go out and try. We should not be restricted by family members' “concern.”
If we stay inside like ordinary people, then aren't we ordinary people? If every Dafa disciple goes out, the streets won't be so deserted. More people may come out as well when they see people outside. Shouldn't we do our best to save people?
Keeping Righteous Thoughts and Saving People During the Epidemic
By a Falun Dafa practitioner in China
I was visiting my parents during the Chinese New Year holiday when we learned about the coronavirus outbreak. Soon the community district restricted people from going out. Every person who enters the district is required to show their ID and have their temperature taken.
My mother and I wanted to go out to save more people. We sent righteous thoughts to stop the guard from checking our IDs.
“It is necessary for a Dafa disciple to ensure his cultivation on a daily basis, and it is the mission of a Dafa disciple to clarify the facts and save people. ” (“A Reminder”)
Every day, my mother and I studied the Fa, did the exercises, and sent righteous thoughts before going out. We talked to people about Falun Dafa, advised them to quit the CCP, and handed out truth-telling materials and mementos. People who received our materials were very happy and kept thanking us. We told them to thank Master.
One day, my mother and I together with a fellow practitioner decided to go to another district to distribute materials. When we went in and out of the district gate, we sent righteous thoughts to stop the guard from checking our IDs. We entered smoothly and distributed the materials. The following day, mother and I posted many truth-telling posters. We checked several days later and saw that only one poster had been removed. All the others were still up. We sincerely hope that many people will see them and be saved.
Today after sending righteous thoughts at noon, I took some materials and went out. There were barely any people on the streets. How could I save people if the streets were deserted? I thought I should go to hospitals – there would be many people there waiting to be saved.
I went to the closest hospital. A person at the gate was taking temperatures. I sent righteous thoughts and asked Master to bring predestined people to me.
There were few people in the main hall. I saw an elderly couple who seemed to be waiting for someone. As I approached them I sent righteous thoughts and asked Master to strengthen me. The older lady stood up and went to the restroom. I asked the older man, “Are you here to see a doctor?”
“It's not me. It's my wife who has a sore throat. I'm accompanying her.”
“It's frightening to see everyone wearing masks, isn't it?”
“Sure. But they wouldn't let us in if we did not wear masks.”
I said, “Even wearing masks does not ensure your safety. There's a better way.” I began to tell him about Falun Dafa and the importance of quitting the CCP.
When the woman returned I talked to her and she said she believed in Buddha. “We all have spiritual beliefs,” I said. “But joining the CCP organizations is equivalent to joining a cult of atheism. Only by quitting it will Buddha protect you.”
The man said he joined the CCP. The lady said she joined the Young Pioneers. Both of them agreed to withdraw their Party memberships. I gave them some reading materials.
I'm so grateful to Master! In order to save more sentient beings and give us practitioners more time to improve, Master kept extending our time. I will eliminate my human attachments, cultivate well, and save even more people. I will not disappoint Master!
