(Minghui.org) A couple from the city bought the house next to ours. The husband, Jun, was the president of a bank, but he quit his job and decided to raise pigeons in the countryside. His wife used to work at the same bank, but she also had to quit her job after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
Before they moved in, they had several renovation projects around the house. My husband often went there to check if they needed any help and he quickly made friends with Jun.
Jun usually came in the morning and went back to their home in the city in the evening during the renovation. Upon seeing he had no place to have lunch, my husband invited him to have lunch at our place. When he had a long day working there, he also stayed for dinner before heading back.
In addition to the house renovation, Jun also hired a few workers to build a pigeon house. We offered to have the workers both eat and stay at our place, so that they could finish the project sooner. Due to the rainy weather, the 3-day project dragged on for ten days.
While the workers stayed at our place, I found opportunities to clarify the facts about Falun Dafa to them. Most importantly, I wanted them to know from my own actions what a Falun Dafa practitioner looks like in real life. They could feel that I truly cared about them and appreciated my hospitality. Even though Jun bought the food for them, I never hesitated to serve them with additional food at our own cost.
After the workers left, Jun continued to have lunch at our place, until he and his wife moved in about two months later.
Jun told me that they appreciated all the help my husband and I gave them. They said we always looked happy and are easy going. They often came over to talk to us and sought our opinion on various things.
Earlier this year, Jun began to cough. The doctor said he had large areas of shadow on his lungs and 80% of his lungs were congested. Although it’s not cancer, it’s almost impossible to cure it.
Jun and his wife were saddened by the diagnosis. They asked for our help to find a person to clean the pigeon house for them. My husband recommended finding a Falun Dafa practitioner, as they all believe that Dafa practitioners are honest and the most reliable.
I comforted the couple not to be afraid. I also told them about the auspicious phrases “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good,” and the recovery stories of patients by reciting the phrases, including those who had cancer.
When a fellow practitioner came to talk to Jun and his wife about the cleaning job on the next day, I talked to the couple more about Dafa and they were very receptive.
Jun then started to prepare for the hospitalization. Before that, he had another examination. To his surprise, the result indicated that he only had minor inflammation and there was no need for him to be hospitalized or receive injections. The doctor prescribed him some medicine and sent him home.
He and his wife were exhilarated. The first thing they did when coming back was to tell us the good news. As soon as Jun stepped into our home, he exclaimed, “Falun Dafa is good!”
They told us that they were already planning to write a will. They were so relieved to hear that things were fine.
Amazed by Falun Dafa’s miraculous power, Jun’s wife asked for a copy of Zhuan Falun, the main text of Falun Dafa.
When the fellow practitioner came to clean the pigeon house, I also helped her. The two of us spent nine hours, without taking lunch break, and turned it into brand new space. Jun and his wife were very pleased and doubled the pay to 200 yuan. The practitioner kindly refused. She said, “Although we did work a little bit longer, we had made the agreement on 100 yuan. I can’t take the extra money.” When my husband took the money back to the couple, they were very touched.
