My Father-in-law Is a Legend in Our Village
(Minghui.org) Many miraculous things that happened to my 76-year-old father-in-law have made him a legend in our village.
As he was riding his electric bike in September 2020, he was hit by a taxi at an intersection and thrown five meters. He hadn't heard the taxi's horn. He flipped a couple of times in the air, fell on the ground, and lay still. The taxi's windshield was smashed. The passersby all thought that he must be dead. But when he was taken to the hospital, it appeared he only had a slight injury to his spine, some bruising, and soreness in his arms and legs. He recovered totally after resting at home for a few days.
When my father-in-law recalled the accident, he said that it felt like a dream in which he had an indistinct feeling of being supported by a pair of large hands that then gently put him down. He didn't feel any pain. He knew clearly that Master had saved him again.
Every time he talked about the incident, he mentioned the hands supporting him.
The police officer who wrote up the report said, “Your father-in-law is truly fortunate. There are a lot of accidents at that intersection. A person on a bicycle was hit and killed there not long ago.”
In October, my father-in-law went out to do errands and happened to run into the village director, who looked him up and down and saw that he was hale and hearty. The director couldn’t help blurting out, “My friend, I heard you escaped another catastrophe. Did Falun Gong save you again?” Father-in-law smiled and confirmed that it was true.
The director remarked, “It is truly remarkable. Those who saw the accident said that you could not escape injury this time. Only Falun Gong can do such miraculous things.”
Eight years ago, my father-in-law had late-stage ampullary (duodenum—near the beginning of the small intestine) cancer. He had major surgery to remove part of his stomach, bile duct, pancreatic duct, and duodenum and to insert a plastic tube that connected the involved tissues.
The doctor thought Father-in-law would only live three to five years more even if the operation was successful. After the surgery, he had a low-grade fever for over two weeks. The incisions became infected. The doctor was unable to do any more for him, and my father-in-law was in great pain.
Under the influence of Falun Dafa practitioners in the family, father-in-law developed a sincere desire to study Dafa and listen to Master’s lectures. As a result, on the night he committed to becoming a practitioner, his fever vanished and the pain lessened greatly. His condition improved quickly after that, and he improved every day. A few days later, he was discharged from the hospital.
After returning home, my father-in-law began to study the Fa diligently. He also listened to the recordings of Master’s lectures. He realized that cultivation means improving one’s moral character, being a good person, and assimilating to the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance.
Consequently, whenever anyone in the village needed help with anything, big or small, he always showed up, worked energetically, and didn't care about being rewarded. He became kinder and kinder and more broadminded. He had stamina and looked happy every day. Everyone in our family was happy for him.
Eight years have passed, and his health is super good. He has a healthy appetite and can do all kinds of work around the house. Several people who had cancer when he did have passed away. Only the man the villagers didn't think would live long survived and is more vital than anyone else. He has thus become a legend in the village.
