(Minghui.org) I changed when my wife began practicing Falun Gong.

My wife and I used to fight a lot and the stress affected us both. She became depressed and developed kidney disease.

I was not healthy either. I had migraine headaches, rheumatoid arthritis, and varicose veins. I was in pain all over, especially in the colder seasons.

My wife learned that Falun Gong had healing powers and she began practicing it before 1999. She recovered from her illnesses shortly afterward. I read Zhuan Falun and realized that this book guided people to be good.

When the persecution began in July of 1999, many practitioners were arrested for their belief. The police attempted to arrest my wife also. I fully supported her because I did not believe that she was breaking the law by trying to be a better person. I protected her each time they tried to arrest her and made sure that nobody would take my wife away.

I helped other practitioners, too. I visited their families when they were arrested and helped them with money and supplies. When a Falun Gong practitioner was forced into homelessness and came to our area, I took them into my home. How could I not help such a good person?

Once the family member of a Falun Gong practitioner called me for help. His wife was about to be arrested at home. I rode there on my motorcycle and took her away, with an official vehicle following close behind.

It took a while to lose the car that attempted to follow us. Later my wife asked me if I was afraid. “Of course,” I said. “When they were following us at high speed, my heart was thumping and I could hardly breathe. Then I thought that I could not leave her behind and I had to protect her.”

My wife was so proud of me. “You did well today. The heavens would approve.”

Because I did the right thing over the years in protecting Falun Gong practitioners, I was blessed. My illnesses disappeared one by one. My business did well every year. When others commented on my success, I told them that I was blessed because I supported Falun Gong.

I once had an accident while working. My hand was pulled into a machine and twisted. I kept reciting “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” on my way to the hospital.

When I arrived in the emergency room, the doctor took a quick look. One tendon was cut and a blood vessel was broken. He would have to remove two of my fingers. Then he took an X-ray and told me that my hand was intact. He quickly reconnected my blood vessel and said he would not amputate my fingers. I recovered quickly and I knew why.

I want to share this with others: Falun Gong is good and Master guides people to be good. I want other people to be kind to Falun Gong practitioners and be blessed like me.
