Saving People Amid the CCP Virus Epidemic
(Minghui.org) I have close contact with a few practitioners in my area. We have cooperated with each other in clarifying the facts to people amid the CCP virus outbreak.
“This Bit of Pain Won't Stop Me from Going Out to Save People”
Two practitioners are living in the same neighborhood. During the lockdown, they studied the Fa together, and talked to people about Dafa and the persecution every day.
When the public transportation was out of service, they walked for long hours, clarifying the truth to whoever they came across.
They encouraged each other by saying, “We must hurry up to save people. We believe that Master would bring those with a predestined relationships to us.”
One of them is 82 years old, and the long hours walking caused a lot of pain in her legs and feet. When she could not sleep at night, she sat up and sent forth righteous thoughts.
Her children tried to persuade her to rest for a few days, but she said, “Don't worry about me. This bit of pain cannot stop me from going out to save people.”
Because of their persistent efforts, they could help dozens of people quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations each week.
“Just Let Me Know How Many More You Need. I'll Get Them Ready for You”
The practitioner who usually provides truth-clarification materials in our area faced increased family responsibilities during the epidemic.
She has to take care of her little granddaughter, because her daughter is working out of town. Her husband was admitted to a hospital again due to a stroke, so she has to rush between her home, and the hospital every day to take care of both her loved ones.
I was a bit reluctant to ask for more materials, but she always said, “We haven't got much time left for saving people. We must hurry up. Just let me know how many more you need. I will get them ready for you.”
In addition to providing materials, she also seizes every possible opportunity to clarify the truth to people face to face and encourages them to quit the CCP organizations, whether during hospital visits or doing grocery shopping.
Her husband doesn’t practice Falun Dafa, but has been very supportive of his wife, and has helped us a lot in making truth-clarification materials over the years. They always insist on footing the bill for items needed to make truth-clarification materials.
This is the fifth time her husband suffered a cerebral ischemic stroke. and each time he recovered fairly quickly. He feels very confident that he would pull through the current stroke attack as well.
Helping Infected Relative
A fellow practitioner, and I always study the Fa and clarify the truth together.
During the CCP virus epidemic, her son left his two young children with her because he and his wife had to go back to work in another city.
As she cannot go out as before, she spends more time studying and memorizing the Fa with her 8-year-old grandson. She also makes phone calls to her relatives and friends to spread the truth.
She called her sister-in-law in Wuhan after the Chinese New Year, and learned that she was infected with the virus.
“I'm running a high fever and my throat hurts. I have trouble breathing, and I'm coughing a lot too. Besides, I am aching all over. It's terrible!” her sister-in-law wept. “There are too many patients in hospital to get any treatment.”
“Don't worry,” the practitioner comforted her. “You can try to recite two phrases ‘Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ and they will bring you good luck you.”
Her sister-in-law followed her and they recited the phrases again and again, while the practitioner encouraged her, “Don't give up. You will be alright.”
A few days later, she called her sister-in-law again and was told, “I'm well now! Fully recovered! Falun Dafa is amazing!”
When I went to the practitioner's place to give her more materials, she told me that she and another practitioner wanted to buy a printer. They hope to make truth-clarification materials to take some pressure off the practitioner who has to take care of her granddaughter, and her husband. I truly felt that we are one body, and everyone is trying her best to save people.
Clarifying the Truth to My Clients
One person was my daughter's former classmate, who works in a government agency. I had clarified the truth to her before, and tried to help her quit the CCP, but she was reluctant to do so due to fear of repercussions.
This time, before the appointment, I sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate all the evil factors behind her, and asked for Master’s help to strengthen me.
When she came, our conversation naturally started with the epidemic and the sufferings it had brought to ordinary people, then I encouraged her to quit the CCP.
“I know that the CCP is very corrupt” she said, “and I don't want to be part of it, but I have to keep going to support my family.”
“Don't worry. You can quit the CCP from your heart. Gods only see one's heart. I can help you quit the CCP, using a pseudonym.” She was happy to hear that and said, “Please help me quit then.”
I felt very happy for her, and for myself as well because I had let go of an attachment of fear, which had obstructed me from clarifying the truth in depth to my daughter's former classmates, and her colleagues.
There is a little boy with poor vision. I have known his parents for some time as they have brought him for eye tests from time to time.
When I clarified the truth to his parents in the past, they told me that they weren’t interested in spiritual things as they didn’t believe in it.
One day they brought their son for an eye test, and we naturally started talking about the epidemic outbreak. I shared my opinion that the virus epidemic has come to target the CCP. I told them about the on-going persecution and also the horrendous crimes of forced organ harvesting from live, non-consenting Falun Dafa practitioners.
I said that good would always be rewarded with good while evil doing would meet retribution. Also, that whoever is a member of the CCP would suffer consequences, and those who have quit the CCP would stay safe and be blessed with a bright future.
They listened attentively and then the boy's father said, “I have joined the Communist Youth League and Young Pioneers in the past, and my wife also joined the Young Pioneers. Could you help us quit these organizations? I can feel you are telling us all this for our sake. We would be very grateful if you could do it for us.”
I was very happy for them and also gave them a couple of truth-clarification brochures to share with their relatives and friends. They were very grateful and thanked me.
One day in mid March, a lady brought her son to me for an eye test. She told me that someone had recommended me to her. We had a lovely chat after her son's eye test.
“Have you heard about the quit CCP movement?” I asked her at one point. “Yes, I sure have, I have also seen such messages on bank notes.”
She told me she was not a CCP member, but had joined the Communist Youth League and the Young Pioneers in the past. “How about I help you quit both of them with a nice pseudonym?” I suggested. Good. Let's do it,” she said happily.
Her son is a high school student. He listened to our conversation very attentively.
“You must have been a Young Pioneer member. Would you like me to help you quit the organization as well?” I asked him with a smile. He nodded his head.
That was the first time I encouraged a youngster to quit a CCP organization in front of a parent.
In the past, I often tried to keep away from children when I clarified the truth to their parents for fear that the parents might feel unhappy. I realized the undue “fear” came from my own human notions, and I must let go of it.
Since then, I have become more proactive in clarifying the truth to my clients and almost all of them responded positively, and were willing to quit the CCP organizations.
Time is pressing. As Dafa disciples, we must do better, and even better in saving people, because we are their only hope.
