(Minghui.org) After the novel coronavirus broke out in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, it quickly spread and a lot of people have died from it. Many Falun Gong practitioners living outside of China are making phone calls to China and reminding people of how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)'s cover-up of the epidemic has resulted in the quick spread of the virus, not only in China but in many other countries. 

They also explain that the CCP has been using the same deceitful tactic in its persecution of Falun Gong, a mind-body practice based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance that has enabled millions of practitioners to improve their health and character. They urge people to quit the CCP to stay safe during the outbreak.

Many people have come to appreciate Falun Gong practitioners' efforts. They often change their view of Falun Gong and quit the CCP.

“I Want to Save People Like Falun Gong Practitioners”

A Falun Gong practitioner called China during the Chinese New Years' holidays and a young man answered. She told him how withdrawing from the CCP would help people avoid the virus. However, he was upset and told the practitioner: “I don't believe in gods; I’m an atheist; I only believe in Marxism.”

The practitioner explained to him the harm the CCP has done to the Chinese. She told him that she was not asking him to go against anyone, she wanted to help him to stay safe.

He no longer resisted. He wanted to learn more about Falun Gong and asked her where to find more information about the practice.

When the practitioner called back two days later, the young man had completely changed his view. He thanked her and agreed to quit the CCP. He told her that people in Wuhan were having a difficult time and asked her to help them by calling more of them.

He also said, “I would like to read more about Falun Gong—I want to save people like Falun Gong practitioners.”

“I No Longer Believe in the CCP”

One practitioner reached Ms. Zhang, a college student in Hebei Province, on a recent phone call. The practitioner told her the facts about Falun Gong and urged her to quit the CCP. Ms. Zhang said she had a friend in high school who also practiced Falun Gong. Although her friend told her about quitting the CCP, she hesitated and did not do it.

After witnessing how much people were suffering in the coronavirus outbreak and how the CCP deceived people, she said that she no longer believed in the CCP and agreed to withdraw from the Young Pioneers and the Youth League.

A man in Wuhan answered a call from a different practitioner and agreed to quit the CCP. He told the practitioner that he had received such a phone call before but he did not believe what he heard. Now he did.

He also passed along a few of his friends' phone numbers to the practitioner and hoped that his friends would learn the truth as well.

Party Secretary: “It Feels Good to Quit the CCP”

Ms. Shen, a 78-year-old Falun Gong practitioner in Toronto, Canada, has been calling people in China for many years. Since the coronavirus outbreak, she has made many phone calls to China. She thinks that people want to know the truth and that more people want to quit the CCP.

Once she reached a county Party secretary and said to him, “I am so happy that I reached you.” He listened to her and agreed to quit the CCP without any hesitation.

The next day, a township Party secretary answered her call. She told him about his conversation with the county Party secretary the day before and suggested that he take care of the people in his township.

After learning the truth, he immediately agreed to quit the CCP and cheerfully said, “It feels so good to quit it.”

Ms. Shen called an old friend whom she hadn't contacted for 50 years. Her friend was excited to hear from her and they recalled their old days together. Her friend's husband is a high-ranking government official. Even though life is easy for her, she has a lot of health issues.

Ms. Shen told her about Falun Gong and the value of saying, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She also explained the benefits of quitting the CCP. Her friend agreed to quit and carefully wrote down the words to say.

When Ms. Shen called her a few days later, she told her that her health indeed had improved daily after reciting those phrases.
