(Minghui.org) To celebrate May 13, World Falun Dafa Day, practitioners from rural areas in China have submitted greetings to Minghui thanking Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of the practice. They are grateful that the teachings have helped them become better, healthier people and remain determined in their righteous faith despite the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s 21-year-long persecution. 

A husband and wife, practitioners from a village in Yantai City, Shandong Province, wrote: “Happy Birthday, Master! We have been practicing Dafa for only sever years. By reading your books, we’ve realized there is nothing more precious and important in this world than cultivation. Dafa gave us healthy bodies and minds as well as blessings. We learned to treat others with kindness and to be honest and virtuous. We must cherish this opportunity and cultivate diligently.”

A practitioner from Zhaoyuan City, Shandong Province, wrote: “I was ill and in the hospital for 45 days. I heard there were people practicing Falun Dafa in my village and that the practice could cure illnesses, so I decided to give it a try. I got better day by day. I no longer need to medicine or injections. I have recovered completely. I am very grateful to you, Master.”
