Couple in Their 80s Go Out to Save People During the Pandemic
(Minghui.org) The CCP virus (coronavirus) broke out in Wuhan at the beginning of 2020 and quickly spread throughout China. Cities and villages were locked down, and people were ordered to stay inside their homes.
This pandemic is also a big test for us practitioners. We realize this is a reminder and a warning of the urgency of saving people and that we need to cultivate ourselves diligently.
“Predestined ties of countless lifetimesEach has Dafa as its guiding thread‘Tis in hardship the golden body is temperedWhy such slow and leisurely steps?(“The Difficult Path to Godhood”, Hong Yin Volume II)
For the past 20 years, my husband and I go out to clarify the truth to people face to face every day, rain or shine. We also post truth-clarification letters to people nation wide. We post 3 letters every day.
There are 35 households in the building where I live. Many of them have learned the truth during this pandemic.
Since people stayed at home during the lock down, I knew it was a good opportunity for us to visit the neighbors. One day my husband and I knocked on the door of a family on the 6th floor. The lady welcomed us into her home and served us tea and fruit.
We explained why we came and told her that many people feel they've been blessed and felt safe from the pandemic by saying, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good”. We also explained that millions of Chinese had already withdrawn from the CCP (Chinese Communist Party). She was very happy and accepted our truth-clarification materials. She kept thanking us. We told her to thank our Master because Master asked us to save her.
After we left her home, we felt our huge responsibility to save people. We must do it well and harmonize what Master wants.
But sometimes it's easier said than done. We knocked on another door, but the family refused to open it. Another family opened the door, but then slammed it hard as soon as we started to clarify the truth to them. Some swore at us.
Then my attachments surfaced, such as feeling wronged, jealousy, competitiveness and resentment. When I remembered Master’s Fa, I remembered to look within and truly cultivate myself. When I looked outwardly, didn’t I push away a good opportunity to improve my xinxing? My attachments were exposed and I must eliminate them.
We visited all the households in our building within two days and half of them accepted the truth-clarification materials.
We clarified the truth to taxi drivers and scooter drivers as well. Some of them asked for extra materials and said that they would distribute them to people and advise them to withdraw from the CCP. They later gave us lists of people who quit the CCP and we posted them online.
One day a scooter driver brought my husband and I home. At the gate of our residential area, a security guard questioned the scooter driver and asked him what we gave him. The driver scolded him and said, “They practice Falun Dafa and are good people. Even during this dangerous pandemic, they risk their lives to tell people the facts so that people can stay safe. They are in their eighties yet still go out to save people every day. They are the best people in the world. Don't do anything to harm them!”
He gave me a list of people who had quit CCP so that I could publish it online.
Ordinary people are terrified during this pandemic. We practitioners know what we should do.
I’d like to end my sharing with Master’s Fa.
“Don’t let the madness and confusion of this world affect you. Cultivate with the heart you once had, and spiritual perfection is certain! May you grow ever more diligent as you approach the end!” (To the Experience-Sharing Conference in Taiwan)
