Falun Dafa Gives My Family Harmony and Happiness
(Minghui.org) My wife is a Falun Dafa practitioner. She always told me how effective Falun Dafa is at treating diseases. One afternoon in May 2002, my wife’s brother rode our bicycle to where I was working at a construction site. He lived at our house because he was sick. At that time, my wife came and asked him, “I need the bicycle to go to work. Can you give it to me?” She saw the bicycle leaning against the wall, so she went to get on it. My wife's brother has a mental disorder and he picked up a brick and hit his sister in the head with it. My wife fell down, and her brother continued hitting her on the head several times. By the time somebody came to help, there was blood all around her.
My wife was taken to a hospital for emergency care. An hour later she was still unconscious. The doctor declared that she would need a craniotomy if she did not regain consciouness within 24 hours. Immediately, they found a barber and cut my wife’s hair. A CT scan showed that she had a fractured skull and hematomas of the brain. The doctor told me, “Even if she survives this injury, she will be a vegetable.”
My wife suffered a lot during childhood. Her parents passed away when she was still very young. She has six siblings and worked hard to provide for them and send them all to school. She did not even take it easy after we got married. I was the youngest child in my family. I was spoiled since I was little. I knew nothing about housework. I have bad habits such as smoking and drinking. My wife supported the whole family.
When I heard that my wife would probably not wake up again, I burst into tears. What would I do if I lost her? Our daughter was only 12 years old, and she could not live without a mother. At that moment, I suddenly heard a voice saying, “Wake her up!” I suddenly remembered that my wife was a Falun Dafa practitioner. I hurriedly ran to her bedside and kept my hands in the heshi position, “Master, please save your practitioner! She is only 30 years old. Our family cannot lose her!” I asked for Master’s help over and over, and so did my sisters-in-law. They cried her name time after time. Then a miracle happened! My wife woke up suddenly in the middle of the night. I was so happy and moved to tears. I repeated, “Thanks to Falun Dafa! Thanks to Master!”
Although she woke up, her face was swollen and purple and she did not look the same as before. Because of our family’s economic condition, the doctor told me that my wife did not need the craniotomy, but that the hematomas would be difficult to treat. However, less than 2 weeks later, she had a CT scan just before leaving the hospital. The hematomas were gone! Even the doctors were surprised.
During my wife’s stay at the hospital, there was another patient in her room who had also sustained a head injury. This woman had brain surgery six times and it cost her about 200,000 yuan, but she still did not survive. My wife, however, did not have any sequela after the disaster. She was in great spirits as well. All her friends and family witnessed the wonder of Dafa!
I work in construction, which has contributed to back problems. In 2006, I herniated several lumbar discs. I could not stand up straight due to the pain and I was unable to work for several months. I took medications, but they did not work. I was sad and upset. I sometimes even shouted at my wife, but she never cursed or shouted back. She told me the truth about how Dafa was persecuted by bad people and gave me some materials to read as well.
My wife hasn’t been sick or taken any medicine since her recovery from the head injury. My wife's miraculous recovery allowed me to see the truth about the persecution of Falun Dafa. After acknowledging the truth of Falun Dafa in my heart and mind, my pain disappeared and I could straighten my back again. I knew it was Master who removed my affliction. It is true that “you will be blessed if you know the truth.” I must clear out the Chinese Community Party (CCP) culture of poisonous factors from my mind. I must withdraw from evil and get rid of bad thoughts. I asked my wife to help me quit the CCP, and I decided to be a qualified Dafa practitioner and support my wife.
The change in my daughter was also very amazing. When she was in her third year of junior high school, she was having fun, skipping class, and never studied diligently. Every time there was a parents' meeting for the “bad students,” I asked my wife to attend because I didn’t want to lose face at the meeting. The school did not let my daughter attend the high school entrance exam because her low score would affect the school’s enrollment rate. We had no choice but to pay higher tuition for her to go to a secondary high school. Both my wife and I lived frugally for years so that our daughter could achieve academic success. However, my hopes for her were dashed and I was anxious and unhappy. I almost felt like beating her, but my wife comforted me, “Anxiety cannot help. She is the daughter of Dafa practitioners. I believe that Master will take care of her. Let it go.”
Some time later, I found my daughter reading Zhuan Falun. When she returns home for holidays, she reminds me, “Dad, don’t forget to recite ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!'” She even helps her mother with household chores. I found that she had changed a lot. She became sensible and smart. She is versatile, and she really improved in her studies! After three years, she scored high on the college entrance exam and went to a good university. After graduation, she found an ideal job.
Although we don’t have much savings in the bank, we don’t have a big house, and we don't have luxurious furniture, my family is in harmony. Seeing the change in my daughter, the healthy body I have and thinking that it was Master Li who saved my wife’s life, I feel grateful that it is Falun Dafa that changed our family’s fate. Words cannot express my joy and my gratitude to Master. The only thing that I can do is to tell my colleagues that “Falun Dafa is good. Falun Dafa is the righteous Fa. Whoever believes in it will be blessed; the one who persecutes it will be punished.”
