(Minghui.org) I am a 73-year-old woman. My face was scarred due to smallpox when I was only eight months old. With ulcerations on my nose and skin, my face looked like the surface of a bitter melon, scaring off many who saw me. My relatives were heartbroken and I developed a really bad temper. Sometimes I wanted to die when I was discriminated against by others.
One day in 1997 – a remarkable day I will never forget my whole life – I was strolling in a local stadium and was deeply impressed by the many lovely people doing exercises along with beautiful music, seemingly from Heaven. Moreover, the peaceful scene was covered in red light. Afterwards, I started practicing Falun Gong and my life dramatically changed. Master said, “Due to karma resulting from past wrongdoing, one has illnesses or tribulations...” (Lecture One in Zhuan Falun)
I understood the reason behind my suffering and never blamed my misery on others. What I truly regretted was that I was only able to find such a sacred book so late in life.
After cultivating, I completely changed my view of life and became peaceful, broad minded and friendly. In addition, my body underwent great changes: several diseases, such as cirrhosis, coronary disease, vertigo, rheumatoid arthritis and lumbar vertebrae bone hyperplasia went away without any medical treatment. The most amazing thing is, my scarred face became fine and smooth. I knew that our merciful Master reconstructed my face by using his supernatural powers. My relatives and neighbors all witnessed this miracle from the Fa.
Master! I owe you a debt of gratitude which I will never be able to repay! I will forever be your disciple.
I went to Beijing twice to appeal on behalf of Falun Gong after the persecution began on July 20, 1999. I was beaten badly many times and detained twice in a local nursing home, for up to five years. In addition, they withheld my salary, allowing me to receive only 50 yuan per month. As an older woman, a retired teacher, I would have been destitute had I not been protected by Master and supported by my fellow practitioners. Now I have nothing to worry about, and wherever I go; I bring the truth to sentient beings.
Especially, in the nursing home, all of the staff and the other residents know that Falun Gong is good since I persisted in clarifying the truth. At last the director sent me home personally and asked that their nursing home not be added to the Minghui website's list of perpetrators.
Finally, I am free. I will do the three things more diligently, thus saving more sentient beings.
