A Predestined Relationship
(Minghui.org) I am a middle school teacher who started to practice Falun Dafa in 1998. Before that, I had many ailments and visited different hospitals, to no avail. I felt very weak. To teach two classes every day was a struggle.
A friend introduced me to Falun Dafa. After I practiced it for a few months, I felt well and energetic. However, my cultivation path was not easy, and I did get frustrated when I could not pass a test.
Reconnecting with Old Classmate
Qing was one of my classmates in middle school, and I really missed her. I wanted to tell her about the dramatic changes I experienced after I began to practice Falun Dafa. Another classmate who knew Qing told me the name of the village where she lived. We went to the village to look for her in the summer of 2012.
We found her home and became reacquainted. Her life was not easy. Her husband had retired from the army and then worked in a mine. He became disabled, but his employer did not compensate him. Making ends meet was a struggle.
Their house was demolished, but they were not fairly compensated. Her daughter-in-law was arrested and held for 15 days in a detention center because she asked for fair compensation. Qing and her family were angry at the communist government.
I told them the facts about Falun Dafa and how I benefited and explained why the Chinese Communist Party persecutes Falun Dafa. They decided to quit the Party and its youth organizations.
To my surprise, Qing showed me a photo that hung on the wall. It was a photo of Mr. Li Hongzhi, taken before he began teaching Dafa publicly.
“The Communist Party cannot tolerate a good person”
I asked about the photo. She said that Mr. Li and her husband were fellow soldiers for about five years during his stint in the army. They got along quite well. Her husband said that Mr. Li's moral values were exceptional.
Their story made me hope that they would learn Dafa. I asked them to remember "Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good."
Qing told me that when the Communist Party launched the persecution of Falun Dafa on July 20, 1999, her husband said angrily, “He is such a good person. However, there is no place for him in China. The Communist Party cannot tolerate a good person.”
I went to her home again in 2014. The couple was happy. Qing said that since her husband started reading Zhuan Falun and listening to Mr. Li's lectures, he has become healthy and energetic, and his moral character has improved.
