More People Stand Up for Falun Dafa Practitioners
(Minghui.org) Because of Falun Dafa practitioners’ ongoing efforts to inform the public of the facts about Falun Dafa and its persecution by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), more and more people now support practitioners in upholding their faith. Below are four examples.
A Pedicab Driver
In our area, there is a pedicab driver whose wife practices Falun Dafa. He knows that Falun Dafa is good and supports his wife in her cultivation. Beginning in June 2018, he played podcasts about Falun Dafa to his passengers.
When his family and friends worried that it might not be safe to do that, he told them that he wasn’t afraid because he believed that the messages carried positive energy and would only help people. He said that he himself had already benefited from listening–his ailments disappeared and his character had improved.
He often tells his relatives and friends that Falun Dafa is good. Blessed for his kind heart, he found a better job earlier this year.
Village Official: “I Will Not Take You There!”
I came across an elderly couple and asked them if they had heard about Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. The man answered, “Falun Dafa!”
He told me that, in the village where he was an official, he knew a couple that practiced Falun Dafa, and they really impressed him. If everyone behaved like Falun Dafa practitioners, he said, everyone would get along and there would be no crime.
When he saw the CCP’s slanderous propaganda on television, he knew that Falun Dafa was in trouble. He said he was in his 70s and, after living through so many of the Communist Party’s campaigns, he knew exactly what was going on. Whenever he was asked to take someone to the couple's home to harass them, he refused.
I told him that he would be blessed for helping Falun Dafa practitioners. He replied, “Of course! Our family is doing really well! My children all have decent incomes and we’ve moved to the city. We are also in good health, as you can see.”
A Farmer: “It’s Mine! I Brought It to Hand Out”
Another practitioner and I went to the market to tell people about Falun Dafa.
We bought all of one vendor’s remaining spinach so that he could go home early. When we asked if he knew about Falun Dafa, he said he did and took out a book from his basket, The Ultimate Goal of Communism.
Surprised, I asked if someone had given it to him. “No,” he replied, “It’s mine. I brought it to pass out.” He asked for more materials and put them in his basket.
I was impressed and told him that he was wise and would be blessed for learning the facts and doing the right thing.
Taxi Driver: The CCP Is the Worst
I took a taxi to the market and chatted with the driver about the protests in Hong Kong. I mentioned that a 15-year-old diver was found dead in a lake and the authorities claimed that she had committed suicide.
The driver was furious: “How can a diver drown? I just don’t believe it! The CCP is the worst! I heard that the leader of Hong Kong is a member of the CCP. She is just following orders from Beijing!”
I said, “I think the situation is very similar to the persecution of Falun Dafa. When the CCP ordered the campaign against Falun Dafa, all the media were spreading the ‘self-immolation hoax’ to defame it. Now they are doing similar things in Hong Kong.”
He added, “There’s more to it. Just think about how many peace-seeking students were killed in Beijing in 1989!”
Before I got out, I gave him information on how to circumvent the internet blockade to access real information from outside of China. He was delighted and said, “This is great!”
At the market, I saw a middle-aged man waiting for someone and asked if he knew about quitting the CCP for his safety. He said he’d read about it in the booklets Falun Dafa practitioners had handed out. He thought Falun Dafa was really good and agreed to quit the CCP on the spot.
I took another taxi home and told the driver that Falun Dafa was good. He agreed and told me that someone had already helped him quit the CCP.
“What about your family?” I asked.
“All of them have quit, too. You Falun Dafa practitioners are outstanding!”
He was glad to take the information on how to circumvent the internet firewall. He told me that he would let his family and friends have access to more truthful information.
