(Minghui.org) My province has restricted movement by the populace since the outbreak of the coronavirus, which has included blocking roads and closing off villages. All exits from our neighborhood were blocked, except for one that was guarded by staff from the local neighborhood committee, local government enforcement officers (Chengguan – urban management), and Public Security Bureau officers. We were asked to show our identification papers and permit, showing that we were allowed to come and go.

Not Easy to Be a Falun Dafa Practitioner

The head of the local neighborhood committee was never happy to see me going through the checkpoint. “You are going out again! Buy more this time! Don’t go out again!”

I’m being watched more closely because I practice Falun Gong (aka Falun Dafa). I have also been constantly monitored by the city’s 610 Office. Most of the officials in our local neighborhood committee know that I practice Falun Dafa, but because they have a positive view of the practice, they have been secretly protecting me. Nonetheless, they don’t like seeing me moving about so freely and frequently.

When I returned home one day, I was met with a stern look from my father who is in his eighties. He sat upright in a chair in the middle of our living room. “Why are you still going out at times like this? You are not allowed to leave the house from now on.”

I remained quiet because I knew that he was worried about me. Not only was he worried that I might contract the virus, but more importantly he was worried about my safety. It hasn’t been easy for my parents to deal with those horrible times when I was arrested, and detained in some appalling places by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) minions.

He never liked me going out to clarify the truth about Dafa. But because he was inarticulate and unwell, he asked my mother to punish me. Fortunately, my mother understood the truth about Dafa and knew that I went out to help people understand the truth. She still gets annoyed with me sometimes but never stops me from going out.

Not wanting to hurt my father, I slowed down a bit by staying at home for a few days, concentrating instead on Fa study and sending forth righteous thoughts. But I felt terrible every time I saw an update on New Tang Dynasty TV on the number of deaths in Wuhan due to the coronavirus.

On my birthday, my family celebrated by cooking lots of special dishes. Staring at the splendid banquet, I had absolutely no appetite. As I was thinking of all those people who had not yet been told the truth about Dafa, tears welled up in my eyes. I needed to go out to save people despite the pressure on me. I wanted to tell people that they need to sincerely recite “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good! Keep safe by quitting all CCP memberships!”

Meeting Up at the Right Time

That afternoon, I was able to persuade my mother to let me take the garbage bag to the bin, after which I roamed our neighborhood. There was hardly anyone around, and most houses had their windows and doors closed.

I finally saw a woman emerge from a small side road. “Hello, you’ve had enough of being cooped up indoors?” She raised her voice, “You are right, I can’t stand it anymore. I just want to get out, and get some fresh air.” After glossing over the coronavirus outbreak situation in Wuhan, I got straight to the point. “Let me tell you a way to keep safe. Recite sincerely ‘Falun Dafa is good!’ And keep safe by quitting all CCP memberships!”

She gave me a surprised look, “Are you a Falun Dafa practitioner?” I nodded and went on to clarify the truth about Dafa. She said, “I had a dream last night in which someone told me that I must quit [my CCP memberships]. It’s amazing that you are now telling me that exact thing.”

I was quite surprised myself. “You must be a lucky person to be given such a great hint in your dream.” “Of course I am,” she said. She explained that she was a Christian and had already quit the CCP and its youth organizations, on the advice of a Falun Dafa practitioner. But some time later, she somehow found herself in another CCP military organization where she received special training and had to swear allegiance to the ‘red’ flag. “Doesn’t that count as joining a CCP organization?” I asked. She said that was very likely the case.

She told me that in her dream last night a beautiful woman advised her to quit [her CCP memberships] because she should not be worshiping two religions at the same time. She promptly agreed in her dream, “I quit. Yes, I am quitting. I want to choose what’s at the highest level.” Something was nagging at her mind all day today making her restless. So she decided to go outside, and there I was.

I helped her withdraw her current CCP membership using the same pseudonym she used when she originally quit her other memberships. She then reluctantly took leave, “We must chat again.”

Free to Come and Go

I tried to go out at least once a day on the pretexts of throwing away rubbish or shopping for food. I still managed to spread the good news, although the number of people quitting was not large. Inspired by practitioners’ articles on the Minghui website, I also allocated some time every day to sending forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the interference caused by the virus outbreak to our mission of saving people. It didn’t take long before they removed all the restrictions in our neighborhood. We are now free to come and go as we please.

Let’s all take up the challenge and get out, so we can save more people at this time of widespread disaster. We can use the wisdom we gain from Dafa, and the supernatural powers Master gives us to destroy the old forces’ arrangements. The divine beings are urging us on, and sentient beings are waiting for Dafa practitioners to clarify the truth about Dafa to them.
