(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1995 and can’t describe how excited I was to finally find a compassionate and great master! I went to the practice site to do the exercises in the mornings, studied the Fa or did the exercises during my lunch break, and went to a Fa-study group in the evenings. I was embarrassed if I got lazy and missed the morning exercises even a day.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched the persecution of Dafa in 1999. We went to Tiananmen Square in Beijing and spoke up for justice for Dafa. I was illegally detained. After my release, fellow practitioners and I set up a material production site so that we could clarify the truth and help rescue other detained practitioners.
The place we rented for the material site was on the top floor of a seven-story building with no elevator. It was a true hardship to replenish the printing paper. To avoid being noticed by other residents and causing unnecessary trouble, we had to quickly take the supplies up to the seventh floor when they were delivered. I sent out a thought: “People should not leave their apartments for the time being. When we’ve finished, you can come out again!”
I didn’t slow down just because I was a woman. I would pick up two boxes of paper and walk upstairs, thinking in my heart that I could do it, I’m a Dafa practitioner and nothing could stop me. The boxes were very heavy. I asked Master for help repeatedly and dared not stop along the way. My legs were giving way, and I felt I was going to collapse and vomit when I reached the top. However, I kept moving and went down for the next round right away.
The safety of the material site was paramount, so pain and hardship meant nothing. With Master’s protection, our site operated without a hitch until Minghui.org called for practitioners to set up material sites everywhere.
We later set up a site at my home. I went to my regular job during the day and made materials after work. We supplied material to practitioners whenever there was a need and often worked til 3 or 4 a.m. without being aware of it.
I thought that making materials after work was too restrictive and that it would be better if I started my own business. I could make my own schedule, and it would be easier to communicate with practitioners. After all, we are Falun Dafa practitioners in the Fa-rectification period. Everything is here for Dafa.
I rented a 15-square-meter space and opened up a small store in 2006. I worked with another practitioner to buy supplies and move them to the store. There have been many incidents of practitioners being caught buying supplies, which caused a great loss to Dafa.
The practitioner who bought my supplies was a buyer by profession, so we stocked my space for other practitioners to use as well.
Aside from printing weekly magazines and informational materials, I also made truth-clarification DVDs. I later learned about the effectiveness of using paper bills with truth-clarification information printed on them, so we began producing them too.
A practitioner who did not visit us often showed me the bills with truth-clarification information that she used. They were not very presentable, so I showed her the ones I printed, and she marveled at their quality and ordered some immediately.
Buses stop outside my store, so it was not suspicious for practitioners to congregate in front of it. Practitioners sometimes met there, then went out to distribute Dafa materials. A dozen of us divided into groups of two. Only those who were willing and able would participate. For safety’s sake, we did not share the targeted locations with anyone outside the project.
We did things carefully. Some practitioners went out to check the routes and informed practitioners who were not familiar with the area; some practitioners prepared the materials to be distributed; some sent forth righteous thoughts to clear away all of the old force factors and asked for Master’s protection. We formed one body and cooperated well. We finished what we set out to do successfully and came home safely every time.
After practitioners outside of China set up the New Tang Dynasty (NTD) TV station, we began to promote the installation of satellite dishes. At first, we learned to install them. I put one up in my home, then installed them for other practitioners.
The installation process was a test of our xinxing. Some practitioners’ family members were opposed to us and that affected our work. We then sent righteous thoughts to get rid of the factors that interfered with us and were not moved.
We all realized the importance of NTD. We were short of manpower and could not handle all the work. Many practitioners later joined us, and the promotion became very successful.
As the persecution continues, our cultivation is not over. I will keep up with the Fa-rectification process and return to my true home with Master.
