Power of Falun Dafa: Eliminating My Husband’s Stubborn Notion of Atheism
(Minghui.org) My husband is in his early 70s. As a senior veteran, he had joined the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) when he was young. He also worked as a policeman after retiring from the military. Having been heavily influenced by atheism, he is very practical, and only believes that food and money are life's necessities.
He has suffered from many diseases in recent years. Among them, the most serious is pulmonary emphysema. He can’t even take a walk outside. Both of his lungs have been terribly obstructed. He has been taken to the hospital more than 10 times a year since 2017.
In contrast, I have been healthy since I started practicing Falun Dafa more than 20 years ago. My husband personally witnessed the power of Falun Dafa. I have told him about benefiting from Dafa, and clarified the facts of the persecution many times, but he refused to listen or believe me. I asked him, “Didn’t my diseases go away after I practiced Falun Dafa?” He refused to answer, just dead silence.
He had to stay in a hospital for the entire winter of 2019. It wasn’t until a few days before the Chinese New Year that he was allowed to go home. All our children came home for a gathering on New Year’s Eve. My husband was sick again but endured through the day because he didn’t want to ruin our holiday. On Chinese New Year day, he had difficulty breathing. It was so bad that he couldn’t sit or lie down. It looked as if his eyes were popping out. He experienced a high fever, and I was very worried about him.
Because of the outbreak of coronavirus, his symptoms would probably be suspected as coronavirus infection, which would cause our whole family to be quarantined. His condition made both of us lose sleep. His fever was still very high around 1 a.m. It looked like he could die from suffocation at any moment.
An idea came to my mind at this critical time. I asked him, “You know what it means to ‘fight with one's back to the river,’ right?”
“What...do you mean?” He panted.
“You can’t count on hospitals during the outbreak. There is no other way. Repeat ‘Falun Dafa is great! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is great’ and beg Master to save you!”
He recognized the seriousness of his condition. Given his will to live, he cried in a shivering voice, “Falun Dafa is great! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is great! Master, please save me!” My stubborn husband finally broke the heavy shackle of atheism, and chose to believe that only Dafa could help him, at the crossroads of life and death!
Two hours passed. As he repeated these precious words, he sweat all over. His fever was gone! His chest pain stopped. His breathing stabilized. He told me that he hadn’t felt so comfortable for years!
He was excited by his experience, and now completely believes in the power of Falun Dafa. He realized Master had come to the world to save people. His notion of atheism, which had been instilled into him by the CCP was completely shattered!
My husband is in the process of gradual recovery. He is filled with gratitude to Master for saving his life.
