Mr. Hu Guoyan was a 72-year-old Dafa practitioner from Hubei Province. He obtained the Fa in the fall of 1998. After starting cultivation practice, his mind and body improved dramatically. He easily gave up smoking, something he had been unable to do for several decades. His body grew stronger and stronger. Mr. Hu's character transformed from sullen silence due to being treated unjustly and suffering persecution throughout the course of numerous past political movements, to becoming a joyful and light-hearted man. Mr. Hu's entire family was overjoyed with the changes in him. On July 20, 1999, the Chinese Communist Party launched its systematic persecution of Dafa and Dafa practitioners. The elderly man was unable to escape the persecution. His family went to the Provincial Capital to appeal and validate Dafa. After going home, they suffered persecution. Local officials often came to their door to harass, threaten and intimidate them. They demanded food and drink from the family during these episodes, and treated them in cruel and demeaning ways. Mr. Hu suffered under the enormous psychological pressure. His daughter was illegally imprisoned, and suffered persecution through brainwashing. The illiterate elderly man couldn't find anyone to help him, and lost his cultivation environment. His mind and body began to degenerate rapidly, and he passed away in July 2001.
