Guided and Protected While Going to Villages to Reach Kind People with the Truth about Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I was born in a large rural family and am the youngest of seven children. I had been weak and sick since I was young.
My brothers and sisters all took care of me, and so, I hadn’t suffered much growing up. After I married, my husband was kind and honest, and took care of me also.
However, no one was able to relieve my pain from the illnesses until the winter of 1997, when I was so lucky to find Dafa. Since then, I have been free of illness.
I learned from Dafa that illness is caused by karma. From then on, I've always conducted myself according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I regard myself as a practitioner and firmly follow Master on the cultivation road to return to my true self.
For years, practitioners in our study group have been cooperating closely and consistently, distributing truth-clarification brochures to the remote areas in our county.
We tried not to miss any villages and households to reach as many as possible with the truth about Dafa, expose the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s lies, and save the kind people—our biggest wish.
In the process, there were many challenges. Sometimes we were berated and even reported to the police. Sometimes we were chased by the police. However, with Master’s protection, it all turned out fine. Many miraculous things happened in the process, which has encouraged us to continue moving forward.
The Fireflies Lit Our Way
One autumn night, another practitioner and I formed a team and distributed truth-clarifying materials in a village. There were still some materials left after we finished, and our driver hadn’t come to pick us up yet, so we decided to find another village to distribute the rest of the materials. With no moonlight, it was very dark and we had to walk forward very slowly.
Suddenly, a few small sparkling fireflies appeared and flew in front of us.
We both cheered up, “Master sent the fireflies to lead us to save sentient beings.” We followed the fireflies and quickly came to a village.
The fireflies quietly disappeared into the night sky, and with gratitude toward Master, we distributed the truth-clarifying materials one by one, all the while saying in our mind, “All beings, cherish it! It is Dafa's Master who asked us to come to save you. It is your only hope of being saved.”
I looked back unintentionally and was amazed to see the materials hanging on the door handle emitting a purple glow. “Ah, everything is alive!” I thought.
Clarifying the Truth in a Remote Village
While cultivating myself on the path of helping to save sentient beings, I have eliminated many fears. I had been very timid since I was a child, especially fearing ghosts.
If a person had just passed away at a certain house, I would not dare to pass by the gate, whether it was day or night. After practicing Dafa, I changed a lot, but still harbored some fears.
One night a few years ago, we drove to a remote area away from the city. I was assigned to a very small village alone. There was only one winding main road and a few dim street lights.
I began distributing materials from the far end of the village and tried not to miss any households. There were no street lights at that end and there was no moonlight either.
The houses were arranged unevenly and some houses had grass overgrown in front. From time to time, mice ran out of the grass and it scared me.
Suddenly a crying sound came from a house in the east, followed by sorrowful music. Then came a group of people crying, which was very creepy on such a dark night.
My heart beat fast and the blood rushed up to my head. At that moment, a thought broke into my mind, “I am a Dafa disciple! I have Master who protects me. I am not afraid.”
“A Great Enlightened One fears no hardshipHaving forged an adamantine willFree of attachment to living or dyingHe walks the path of Fa-rectificationconfident and poised”(“Righteous Thoughts and Righteous Actions,” Hong Yin Vol. II)
I kept reciting it. Gradually my heartbeat stabilized and I was not as scared. I knew Master removed the fear from me. I walked lightly and distributed the truth-clarifying materials.
I felt subconsciously a dark shadow behind me, and I quickly walked to the place where there were street lights. I looked back and saw a man in his late 50s, early 60s, following me.
At that time, there were two thoughts fighting in my mind, leave immediately or confront him to clarify the truth. I would be safe if I left, but some people would miss out on truth-clarifying materials.
I knew I couldn’t leave like this. The righteous thought prevailed in the end. I turned back to face the man and said kindly, “Sir, you haven’t rested yet.” He immediately looked at me and asked what I was doing.
I took out a flyer and gave it to him with both hands, “Sir, I am delivering the truth of Falun Dafa and hope you and others in the village can learn the truth and be rewarded with happiness.”
After hearing the word “Falun Dafa”, his face became serious and said, “How do you dare to distribute this? The authorities do not allow it. It is against the Party!”
I knew he was poisoned deeply by the CCP’s lies. I began to talk about my own experiences in practicing Dafa and further talked about how Dafa has spread worldwide.
I also spoke about how Jiang’s regime framed Falun Dafa and told stories about Jiang’s followers suffering retribution. Gradually he became less and less fierce and even said he would read the materials after going back home.
I knew that his kindness had come out and I asked him, “Sir, do you know whether anyone lives in those houses there? I don’t want to waste the flyers if no one lives there. We have tried hard to save money to prepare these flyers.”
He said cheerfully, “You go ahead. There are people living in those houses.” Then he left with the materials in hand.
After I distributed all the materials, other practitioners returned. Together we sang the song of “Coming for You” written by a fellow practitioner and drove back home.
Master Protected Us from Danger
There are also challenges and danger on the path of helping Master save sentient beings. One night in the winter of 2016, my sister-in-law and I teamed up to distribute truth-clarifying brochures in a village.
The village was relatively neat with lights on every street. We distributed the materials along each street one by one.
However, there were a lot of dogs in the village. Once a dog began to bark, other dogs would bark, too.
When I came to a household near the village courtyard, suddenly a strong light pointed at me and a roar was heard, “Stop there! What are you doing?” Two men in their 50s rushed toward me. I was shocked and said in a small, quivering voice, “I’m delivering good news.”
One man held a brochure I just distributed. The other screamed, “What is in your bag?” I knew it was unavoidable now. I calmed down and said, “They are Falun Dafa brochures.”
One of the men opened his cell phone and said he would report me to the police. I advised him seriously not to do bad things. Immediately he stopped. It seemed as if he was frozen and did not talk again.
Only the other one who seemed like a Party official still shouted. My sister-in-law heard the sound and came toward us. I said to her in my mind, “They are going to report me to the police. Do not come.” It seemed she heard me and turned around.
However, she came back shortly and asked what was happening. That official-like man seemed excited and yelled, “Here is another one!”
I said to him, “She is my sister-in-law. We have come to visit a relative and also to deliver truth-clarifying brochures in order to save your people.”
That man seemed to be controlled by evil and didn’t listen to us at all. He ordered us to retrieve all the materials we sent out and claimed he would take us to the police station.
I walked up to him and patted his shoulder lightly, “Sir, are you the Party official of this village? The Buddha talks about predestined relationship. It is fate for us to meet tonight. I should visit your home next time.”
He denied he was an official. He eased a little bit and said, “If you are not doing this, I will invite you in to my home as my guest.”
I knew he was a kind person although he was deeply poisoned by the CCP’s lies. At that time, people who played poker in a room heard the sound and ran out to see what happened.
He waved them back and said, “It’s Falun Dafa practitioners distributing materials,” and the people went back inside.
I made up my mind to save him. I took a truth-clarifying brochure out and handed it to him with both hands and said, “Sir, please take this and read it. It is your hope to be saved!” He shook his hand to refuse it. Somehow, my tears started rolling down my cheeks.
I sobbed and said to him, “I feel so sad that you cannot be saved.”
He was flustered and said, “Do not cry! You have nothing to do with my life or death.” He began to rush us to leave, “Have your people come to pick you up yet!”
I still tried to talk to him. My sister-in-law suggested we go.
Another person in the village also urged us to leave. I knew it was because of Master's protection that we escaped danger. It was also due to my sister-in-law, who disregarded her own safety to help me.
Master saw our xinxing level was up to the standard and resolved the danger for us. I said to Master in my mind, “Thank you, Master!”
Our team has cooperated well with each other and together our footprints are in every village in the suburbs of our city. We go out to clarify the truth, whether it is rainy or windy, hot summer or cold winter, holidays, walking lightly or faltering.
As long as the Fa-rectification is not over, we will follow Master and never stop helping Master save sentient beings.
