(Minghui.org) I am the youngest in my family and have four siblings. The eldest is my brother, who is 17 years older than I am. We have all suffered the tyranny of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), but we have all benefited from Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, a traditional Chinese spiritual discipline for mind and body.

My husband and I started to practice Dafa in 1999. In less than two months, my husband’s severe allergic asthma, which had been bothering him for nine years, disappeared. He has remained healthy ever since.

However, the CCP started the persecution of Falun Dafa in July 1999, causing countless tragedies and destroying families. My husband was fired, and we were both sentenced to prison. When both of us were imprisoned, my mother-in-law and other family members withstood the pressure from the CCP and helped care for our children for six years.

During the dark time in the persecution when family members turned against each other, the help and support from both of our families were especially precious. Because of their righteous support, they also received blessings in the years to follow.

Medical Conditions Disappear

My eldest brother is 76. He never attended school, and he had to take care of the family while still young because our father was sick and couldn’t work. My brother had to work very hard and couldn’t get married. After he retired, he lived with my third brother’s family, who treated him like a parent.

He was hospitalized in 2012 and diagnosed with high blood pressure, kidney stones and bronchitis. He needed surgery to remove the large stones. Before surgery, he had to take medicine for several days to reduce the inflammation. I told him, “If you sincerely recite the auspicious phrases ‘Falun Dafa is good’ and ‘Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,’ miracles might happen.” He believed me and asked me to play a Falun Dafa information DVD for him in the hospital ward shared with other patients.

The day before his surgery, the examination showed that all the stones were gone. As several hospitals all determined that my brother had the stones, the doctor knew it wasn’t a misdiagnosis, but he couldn’t figure out how the stones disappeared.

Nine years later, in 2021, my brother was diagnosed with uremia. His lower limbs swelled up to the roots of his thighs. The doctor said that he had to undergo dialysis, or he would be paralyzed or possibly lose his life. Before surgery, the doctors asked the family to sign a document explaining the operation’s risks and waiving the hospital’s liability. When my brother learned of this, he refused surgery. “I’d rather die at home than on the operating table,” he said. “I believe my little sister. I’ll recite the Falun Dafa phrases and I’ll be fine.”

He went back home. Surprisingly, in less than two weeks, there was no more swelling, and he could walk by himself. Gradually he recovered fully. One year later he is totally fine. My third brother said the hospital had “misdiagnosed” him again.

Pigs Safe from African Swine Fever

My third brother and his wife believe Falun Dafa is good, and they are aware how the CCP persecutes us and spreads lies against us. They often speak up for Falun Dafa and also give people calendars with information about Falun Dafa as gifts.

My brother's kindness has been rewarded. He is always healthy, his family is harmonious, and his farm is running well. When the African swine fever infected most pigs in our village two years ago, all the pig farmers suffered great losses, but none of my third brother’s hundred-plus pigs were infected.

“Falun Dafa extended my life!”

My brother-in-law grew up in a poor family. His health was extremely poor. In his early 40s, he was so weak that his brothers began to prepare for his funeral. He was also short-tempered, so family life was miserable.

Fortunately, he started to practice Falun Dafa in 1998. Since then, his whole life has changed. In less than two months, all his diseases were gone. His temper greatly improved, and he became a healthy and pleasant person. He tells everyone, “Falun Dafa extended my life!”

The Change in My Nephew

Among all my siblings who are aware of how evil the CCP is, my second brother was a little different. Although he agreed that the CCP is bad, he thought it was good during Mao Zedong’s era because of decreased corruption. He missed that time period and put a portrait of Mao in his house.

I reminded him of some facts. “Brother, you personally experienced the great famine, when millions of people starved to death. The Cultural Revolution incited people to fight each other, destroy historical artifacts, and trash traditional culture. What kind of great leader would do this to his people and his country?” My brother was speechless. His son took the opportunity to remove the portrait.

My nephew is very supportive of Falun Dafa, and he was blessed with a good job and a happy marriage.

But his younger brother was different. He was rebellious in high school. He refused to go to school, did not listen to his parents, and did whatever he wanted. His mother worried about him but had no idea how to deal with the situation.

When I learned about this, I went to visit and told him stories about Falun Dafa practitioners. The brutal persecution awakened his sense of justice. He was eager to learn what Falun Dafa is, why the CCP persecutes us, and what gives practitioners the strength to endure such inhumane treatment. He started to read the Falun Dafa materials and watch all the video disks I gave to him. Gradually he changed and began to live by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.

The next year, he went to a vocational high school and started a career after graduation. He got a college diploma through self-education and eventually became an engineer with a decent salary.

He now uses the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to educate his own children. When he runs into a problem with them, he looks within for shortcomings first. Often after he changes himself, his children would correct their own behavior.
