(Clearwisdom.net) My second eldest sister is an honest, kind-hearted person who never makes trouble for anyone. She has done human resource work for many years. In 1997, I started to practice Dafa and introduced Dafa to her as well. However, she had a barrier that curbed her desire to practice to a later time.

In 1999, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started to fabricate lies and stigmatize Falun Gong. Because I stepped out to validate Fa, I was illegally arrested and sentenced to three years in a forced labor camp. During my term of forced labor, my second eldest sister was the only one who came to visit me regularly. When I was close to finishing my prison term, she was diagnosed with cirrhosis and tuberculosis, and was bedridden for more than half the year. Her hospital bill was more than forty thousand yuan, and the doctor had given the medical prognosis to her family that she would live four months at most. I went to see my sister after I was released. By then, she was already reduced to skin and bones. I told her to recite in her heart: "Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance are good." And so, she did.

I went to see her two days later, and her spirits were much better. She told me happily: "When I recited 'Dafa is good,' I felt things turning around and around in my stomach. It was very comfortable. Teach me how to practice." I borrowed a copy of Zhuan Falun for her, which she read while lying in bed. She continued learning the exercise movements over the next ten days, and her condition was markedly improving.

Then, an acquaintance told her: "You will get arrested if you practice Falun Gong; come with me to the temple and learn XX qigong." And so, she did in fact go to the temple. She burned incense, kowtowed, and paid tuition for such a privilege. She spent more than a thousand yuan in just one week. However, her condition began to deteriorate. It was then she was awakened: "Falun Gong did not ask a penny from me, and I got better. Why did I even bother to look for those other things that are not genuine? Falun Gong teaches me to cultivate my character. This is the righteous Fa!" After this understanding, she started to practice Falun Dafa wholeheartedly. Her family also supported her after they noticed that her condition and spirit had taken a turn for the better.

Slowly, my second eldest sister's dose of Chinese herbal medicine soup decreased from several bowls a day to one bowl a day. Then it decreased from one bowl to a small cup. In less than four months, she stopped taking medicine completely. It has been eight months; her weight went from 30 kg (66 lbs) to about 100 lbs, and her complexion is glowing. My sister always sighs with a feeling: "I should have practiced Falun Dafa earlier!"

The CCP's lies fall on deaf ears based on the changes in my sister. Today, her relatives, friends, and neighbors all call Falun Gong wonderful and miraculous!
