A Friend Told Me, “Falun Dafa Saved Me”
Visiting a Classmate
After the CCP virus (Wuhan pneumonia) spread to Liaoning Province, I called a friend who is also a former classmate. I told her that I wanted to visit her on Tuesday to talk about Falun Gong. But she couldn’t wait and insisted that I come earlier – on Monday. She also told me that her husband would be away that day. I decided to visit her.
When I arrived, another woman was there. She was a relative of a township government official. I talked to them about Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa) and the persecution and advised them to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations. The woman told me that she had never joined any of those organizations. The three of us then chatted for a while.
Seriously Ill, Reciting “Falun Dafa Is Good” Saved Her
My classmate told me, “Two months ago during the lock-down, I came down with a fever. I coughed, my chest felt tight, and it was difficult to breathe. I felt terrible. I did not tell anyone and dared not go to a hospital. I knew that they would quarantine me. I suffered at home for a few days, until one night the symptoms got worse.
“I was in bed and had a fever and a bad cough. I felt as if I couldn’t catch my breath and thought I was going to die. Then a thought crossed my mind: ‘Falun Dafa saves people.’ I started reciting to myself, ‘Falun Dafa is good.’ After reciting it only twice, I felt my breathing ease and my symptoms seemed less severe. The next day, my fever disappeared, I stopped coughing, and my chest tightness disappeared. I recovered—Falun Dafa saved me.
“After I recovered, I was looking forward to seeing you to tell you my story. But because of the lock-down, I’ve had to wait until now.”
I was very happy that she’d believed in Dafa and had been blessed. Her story really touched the other woman, who said, “Gods truly exist when you believe in them.”
I gave each of them a Dafa keepsake with the Chinese characters “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
She Once Practiced Dafa But Stopped Due to the Persecution
This classmate of mine used to practice Falun Dafa. After the persecution started in 1999, she was not able to continue. Her husband was a township government employee, and they lived in a residential area for government employees. The persecution frightened him. Worried about his career, he prevented her from practicing.
She had heart problems since she was young. After she stopped practicing Dafa, I worried about her health and often visited her when I went to the township fair near her home. We chatted often, and I advised her to return to cultivation.
I Tried to Help Her Return to Cultivate
I gave her a DVD of Master Li teaching the Falun Gong exercises and often brought her materials about Falun Gong. She also kept a copy of Zhuan Falun with her all the time. However, she was not able to return to cultivation.
She helped me while I was persecuted in the labor camp, and she came to visit me after my release. I advised her to quit the CCP organizations when she visited me, and she told me that she had already had with another practitioner's help. We remained close friends all that time.
Last year she was diagnosed with herpes zoster. I visited her and brought her several Minghui periodicals, including “Tianci Hongfu” (Blessed by Heaven), “Understanding,” “Golden Seed,” and “Minghui Pictorial.” She read them all and then asked me for Master’s latest articles. I brought her several books of Master’s articles. I thought she would start cultivating Dafa again, but she was not able to.
Because he had worked in the CCP government for more than 40 years, her husband was deeply poisoned by the CCP’s lies. He kept interfering with her cultivation.
She Told Me, “I Will Believe in Dafa All the Way”
When I was leaving her home this time, she told me, “He still does not accept Dafa. His lung disease is bad now, and he has difficulty even walking. However, he still does not want to listen to me. I believe in Dafa, and I will believe in Dafa all the way.”
