(Minghui.org) My daughter was the first in the family to start practicing Falun Dafa. She suggested over and over again that I also start practicing.

I had been smoking since a young age and couldn't quit, so when my daughter tried to persuade me again in 1997, I told her that I would start cultivating if I could quit smoking.

Right after the meal, I picked up a cigarette – it smelled strange. I thought something was wrong with the cigarette so I changed it for another one. That smelled the same. Then I realized that Master (the founder of Falun Dafa) was hinting at me to quit smoking. That day I started to cultivate, and never smoked again.

I participated in the group exercises in the morning and studied the Fa at night. It wasn't long before all my illnesses disappeared.

My wife had a stroke in 1998 and was bedridden. As I could not leave her alone, I established a Fa-study site at my home. Several practitioners in the local area joined me to study the Fa and do the exercises every day.

I moved to the city in 2004 to be with my grandchildren who were in high school at the time. While there, I participated in several experience sharing meetings and met with many other practitioners.

Establishing a Materials Production Site

I decided to set up a Dafa truth-clarification materials production site in 2005. I was in my 60s at the time. Local practitioners said that they would support me. My daughter bought me a computer, while a fellow practitioner bought a printer and a DVD-recorder.

I didn't know how to use a computer, but I believed in Master and was confident that I could learn what I needed to.

The moment I went on the Minghui website it was like a door opened in my heart and it felt like home.

From then on, I could browse the Minghui website every day and read Dafa disciples' articles from all over the world. I downloaded articles, printed brochures and weekly magazines, burned CDs, and delivered them to fellow practitioners.

Whenever I experienced difficulties, other practitioners were always there to assist.

My Materials Production Site Was Safe

I moved back to the suburbs in 2006. Over 40 practitioners were arrested that winter. My little production site was spared, because it was relatively safer in the suburbs. However, a practitioner with technical expertise was arrested. I wanted to make more truth-clarification materials to rescue these practitioners, but my computer broke down.

My daughter and I sent righteous thoughts close to the detention center where the practitioners were being held. We asked Master to strengthen us, and sent righteous thoughts for two days. On the way home on the second day, I met a technically skilled practitioner who was able to fix my computer.

I went to live in another city in 2007 to be nearer my daughter. I set up a Fa-study group in my new place and continued with the Dafa materials production site.

The practitioners in that area were very diligent, especially Ms. Chen. She didn’t have much education, and had difficulty reading some paragraphs of the Fa. I invited her to my place anytime, day or night, and helped her to read more of the Fa. After a while, she was able to read at a regular speed and join the Fa-study group. After retirement, she devoted time to helping people learn about Falun Dafa, and was very diligent.

In 2010, three practitioners in our area were printing the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, Dafa books and other materials, in a home they rented. But they had to stop when one of the practitioners was arrested. All the materials had to be moved as soon as possible, so I contacted the coordinator and took all of the materials to my place. The two practitioners involved in that project joined our group.

At that time, the persecution was rampant and the pressure was really great. There were many police cars in our community one day, so we sent righteous thoughts at my home, and the police did not bother us. But still one of the practitioners couldn't bear the pressure and left. As I had so many machines and materials in my home, I also started to worry.

Master said,

“Our Falun Dafa protects students from going wrong. And how does it protect you? Our Law Wheel protects you if you’re a true cultivator. My roots are all deeply planted in the universe, and if someone could affect you, he could affect me, and to put it directly, he’d be able to affect the universe.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun)

I thought: if we follow Master, no one could affect us. Master is protecting us all the time. My mind then settled down.

The practitioner who used to work on producing the Nine Commentaries booklets accepted a full-time position in a regular job in 2013, and was unable to help anymore.

I thought that I could manage, as I had everything in my home. At first, I used one of the printers, then two, and then I could use all four laser printers at the same time.

Sometimes, I was so busy that I had no time to eat. However, when fellow practitioners collected the boxes of Fa-rectification materials that I had produced it made it all worth while and I was very happy.

My children are always very supportive, and sometimes help to buy materials. They all know that Dafa is good and have chosen a bright future for themselves.

Thank you Master for arranging this project for me. Thank you fellow practitioners for your selfless contribution. We work on his project together and work as one body.
