(Minghui.org) One day in 2012, I noticed a man walking with a limp. I thought that he may have had a stroke. I approached with him, hoping to help him learn the truth about Falun Dafa. I was shocked when I saw his face. He was well known for persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners in the local detention center.
This person followed the former president Jiang Zemin's directives, using despicable means to persecute practitioners, such as brutal beatings.
One day in February 2000, several practitioners did the Falun Dafa exercises at the detention center. After hearing about it, he and three guards cruelly beat the practitioners with a hard plastic pipe and swore at them for three hours.
Practitioners tried to clarify the truth about the practice to him and told him that doing good will be rewarded and doing evil will be punished, but he refused to listen. He even forced the practitioners to stand outside in the snow. Two practitioners lost consciousness.
This man was in his early 40s when he persecuted practitioners and was quite strong, because he used to be a sports instructor.
I couldn't believe that the person who was standing in front of me was him. His hair looked disheveled, his face was dirty, his eyes glazed over and his clothes were dirty. He looked like a 70-year-old man. The power and prestige he used to have was gone.
I asked him if he knew me. He shook his head. Then I asked, “Do you know the truth about Falun Dafa?” He said no.
After I clarified the truth to him briefly, he agreed to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations. I put two booklets of Falun Dafa informational materials in his pocket and told him to read them. I also told him that if he could sincerely recite: “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” he would be blessed. He thanked me again and again.
This person had resigned from the detention center for another job in 2000. He had a stroke a few years ago. His wife cheated on him and finally left him. His only son was sentenced and imprisoned for selling drugs. He had become disabled, but he had to look after his grandson.
I met him again in the spring of 2013 and he looked like a different person. His clothes were much cleaner, his face had a healthy color and he no longer limped.
I again told him about the principle of doing good will be rewarded and doing evil will be punished. I said that the tribulations he had been through were the result of him being involved in persecuting practitioners, and following the CCP directives. He quietly listened and suddenly burst into tears, sobbing loudly.
I advised him: “If you really regret what you did before from the bottom of your heart, you should write a solemn declaration saying you committed wrong deeds to persecute practitioners. He agreed to publish his solemn declaration on the Internet and then left with tears in his eyes.
Three months later, this man was walking towards me wearing a yellow T-shirt, black trousers and white shoes, with a smile on his face. He looked 10 years younger.
As soon as he saw me, he started to thank me. I said: “You don't need to thank me, you should thank Master. It is Master's compassion that saved you. You should tell your friends and relatives about your personal experience and tell them that Falun Dafa is good. Let them know that they must not persecute practitioners and that they should quit the CCP and its affiliates. This could benefit their future, I told him. With a sincere smile, he promised he would do just that.
