Saving People During the Lockdown
(Minghui.org) The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) locked down districts, cities, and provinces at the start of 2020 after the outbreak of the CCP virus (also known as Covid-19). Roads in and out of the villages in my region were also closed on January 2.
With such travel restrictions I was worried that people wouldn’t be able to hear the truth about Dafa and would be at risk from the virus.
Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa, said,
“Dafa disciples are the hope for humankind, and you are the only hope.” (“A Congratulatory Letter to the European Fa Conference in Paris”)
I am a Falun Dafa disciple, and it is my duty to let people know the truth about Dafa.
Hurrying to Tell the Villagers
The severity of the pandemic made me realize that the time for saving people was tight, so I put on a face mask each day and went out to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa to the villagers.
Several practitioners and I went house to house to tell people about Dafa. I told the villagers, “During the pandemic, reciting in your heart: ‘Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’ will help you. Tell your family to recite it as well, and everything will be fine.”
People were very happy to hear these words, and even agreed to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
Nothing Restricts My Movements
My husband has a breeding farm a mile away, and I take meals to him twice a day. As the CCP virus worsened, more restrictions were put in place to limit people's movements.
My village later required people to have a pass to go in and out, so I went to the village committee to apply for one.
The application process was supposed to be fairly complex and required certification from my workplace - a manager's stamp and signature. Yet the village official gave me a pass immediately after I told them that I needed to take meals to my husband each day. I believe that Master helped me after seeing my sincere wish to help save people.
With the pass, I’ve been leaving the village every day to reach out to more people.
Talking to People
I once met an elderly woman, and said, “Let me tell you something wonderful. Remember that ‘Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ It can save your life.”
I asked if she had ever joined the CCP. She told me that she had and wanted to quit. She was very happy and thanked me. I told not to thank me, but to thank Dafa's Master.
I met a man out walking, and said, “The pandemic is taking people now. Keep in mind ‘Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance' is good to be safe.” He said that he would.
I asked him if he had joined the CCP, and told him that I could help him to quit using a pseudonym. He happily agreed. I thanked Master in my heart for helping me find another predestined person.
I approached two people another time. I told them to recite, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” They were both very happy to hear that.
There have been numerous instances like these.
“Mercy can melt heaven and earth into springRighteous thought can save people of the world”(“Fa Rectifies the Cosmos,” Hong Yin Vol. II)
To be able to help save sentient beings under such a situation we must remain calm, have strong righteous thoughts, and study the Fa well.
