(Minghui.org) My husband’s sister suffered from an illness that doctors at the hospital were unable to cure, but she recovered after she began practicing Falun Dafa. After her recovery, my husband understood the righteousness of Falun Dafa’s principles.
When the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began to suppress Falun Dafa in 1999, the police went to many practitioners’ homes and confiscated the Dafa books that contained the teachings of Master Li Hongzhi, Falun Dafa’s founder and teacher. My husband happened to go to a police station one day and saw that the police had many Dafa books just sitting there, which made him feel the need to do something to protect them. When he was left alone, he put the books in a bag and brought them to his sister’s home.
His sister later gave the books to practitioners. She and other practitioners praised my husband for taking a big risk and doing such a great thing. They told him, “Dafa will reward you.”
He said, “I just did it without thinking much. It just happened that I had the opportunity and the ability at the time.”
Indeed, just as the practitioners said, my husband’s kindness was rewarded when I recovered from cancer, twice. The first time I had cervical cancer and recovered quickly after surgery.
Over 20 years later, I suddenly didn't feel well in January 2022. My daughter took me to the city hospital and I was diagnosed with lung cancer. The doctor said that my lungs were covered with cancer cells and surgery wouldn't help. Also, I was prohibited from having another operation because I previously had a major operation for my cervical cancer.
My husband’s sister had urged me to practice Dafa and gave me the book Zhuan Falun. I had known Dafa was good, but was too busy doing things around the home, and had not taken up the practice. I had read some Dafa books and the Minghui Weekly, but never wanted to cultivate, probably because I was afraid of the problems I would face when cultivating. The persecution of this cultivation practice was in full swing.
My daughter called my husband and told him the situation. He told me I might as well leave the hospital and stay at home. He suggested that I start using Chinese herbal medicine.
My mind had a flash at this time: I would not take any medicine or see any doctor once I got home. I would concentrate on studying Falun Dafa. I had not cultivated it because I had been busy at home. Now, the doctors at the hospital could not cure me and I felt I was out on a limb; I needed to accept the fact that I should start cultivating Falun Dafa.
My daughter was sad and cried a lot given my situation, but I was calm and said, “Don’t cry. I will cultivate Falun Dafa just as your auntie does. I guarantee you I will be all right.”
I dug out Zhuan Falun and read it whenever I had time. I did not lie in bed all day like other terminally ill people. I continued to do chores. Friends and relatives came to visit me after learning that I was terminally ill and waiting to die. However, they expressed surprise at how well I looked when they saw me.
I told them it was because I learned Falun Dafa, otherwise, I would be stuck in bed. My health got better by the day. I feel that Dafa gave me my life back.
I thank Master Li for shouldering my pain and karma for me.
