Making Appointments to Tell People about Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) Inspired by another practitioner, I recently tried a different approach to saving people. The idea is to make phone calls to acquaintances and make appointments, then clarify the facts to them face to face and encourage them to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.
I asked for Master Li's strengthening, then called a friend. We greeted each other and soon agreed on a time to meet the next day. We are good friends but had not seen each other for two months.
I was surprised to see that she had become thin, looked weary, and seemed depressed. In tears, she told me that her elder brother had died of stomach cancer, and his body was cremated in a hurry amidst the pandemic. People were panicking, and it seemed that everyone’s life was at stake. So many people in Wuhan have died. She was crying and worried that she could get infected.
I cried with her. I felt sorry that she did not understand the facts. I comforted her and told her about the magnificence of Falun Dafa, and about the CCP’s persecution of Dafa practitioners. I also told her about the Tiananmen self-immolation hoax, the stone bearing the characters “The collapse of Chinese Communist Party,” and why people suffer.
I explained the situation with the Wuhan virus and the CCP covering it up. So many people have died due to the CCP censoring the truth. I explained that this plague is Heaven punishing the CCP for its crimes. I emphasized the fact that Falun Dafa practitioners are practicing the universal characteristics of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance but have been persecuted for over 20 years.
Wuhan was one of the first places to produce slanderous propaganda against Falun Dafa in order to deceive people and justify the persecution. The CCP brought this plague to the world. The ultimate cure is to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
I told her about the powerful phrases, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance is good.”
She listened attentively and shed tears of gratitude. She not only agreed to quit the CCP but also wanted to help her relatives quit. I gave her some pamphlets and amulets to share with them.
“These are all lifesavers!” she said with exuberance, “You told me the truth about a cure for the plague when fear and sorrow was consuming us and we had lost hope. What a great blessing! Thank you so much! I will no longer have fear.”
I said, “Please thank our Master instead. He made all the arrangements to save you. Thank you, Master Li, for saving our entire family!”
We talked for about forty minutes. While watching her leave, I shed tears for the joy of her salvation and Master’s compassion.
I've used this approach over and over again. I called many people and made appointments to meet them in person. Due to the pandemic, it’s not easy to go out. The community workers checked passes and took temperatures of every person who went in and out of the neighborhood. The gate guard questioned me about why I kept going out. My family also tried to stop me.
Every time before going out, I send forth righteous thoughts to deny any interference and clear the minds of those I need to save.
The outcome has been encouraging. Many people have learned the truth and quit the CCP. In this difficult time, I felt such an urgency to go out, and even tried to talk to people I met on the street. I found that it was easier for people to quit the CCP organizations when my compassion was strong.
I have managed my schedule well. I read two lectures in Zhuan Falun, do the five sets of exercises twice, go out to clarify the truth in the afternoons, study Master’s other teachings in the evenings, and go to sleep at around 1:00 a.m. This has become my routine.
My family no longer tries to keep me from going out. I feel that if I follow the standard of the Fa, everything will turn out fine.
