Shining a Light of Hope Inside the Detention Center
(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1996 and was illegally arrested in late 2018. I was detained for a year, but always remembered that my responsibility is to save people. With Master’s protection, I clarified the truth of Falun Dafa to the detainees and helped them quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations.
Many Dafa practitioners had been held in this detention center during the 21 years of persecution, so many inmates knew that practitioners were good people.
Over thirty detainees were in my cell, and several had scabies. One man asked me if I could help to cure him.
I kindly told him, “We practitioners don't treat illnesses. However, we have positive energy. If you and I have a predestined relationship, you may benefit from this.”
A few days later he shouted excitedly, “I don’t itch anymore!”
The detention center then started to use ointments to treat the other detainees who had scabies. They all praised Falun Dafa, and said that it had brought them good fortune.
I told them that they should quit the CCP organizations if they had joined any of them, and recommended that they recite the magical words, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” so they could have a bright future.
Some truly believed what I said, but others had doubts. One detainee asked, “I didn't join any of the CCP organizations. They want to sentence me for three to five years. I want to work in Japan when I get out. If I'm sentenced for less than two years then I could still go there, but if I'm sentenced for longer then I won't be able to. What should I do?”
I told him, “Believe the magic words I told you, then miracles can happen.”
He sincerely recited the words often, and when the verdict was announced, he received a sentence of two years in prison. He was very grateful. I told him, “Dafa’s mighty power is limitless as long as people believe in Dafa. You should thank Falun Dafa's Master Li Hongzhi.”
A casino owner was the head of the cell. He had gout and couldn't walk properly. I went to talk to him, but before I could say anything someone else told him to recite, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
I told him that if he treated other detainees well, he would soon recover. Magically, he was able to walk easily the next day, and everyone in the cell witnessed this miracle. However, he later did some bad things to others to show his authority as the head of cell. As a result, he became unable to walk properly again.
There was a person in there that could be sentenced to more than ten years, and he was very depressed. I told him to recite the magic words and start doing good deeds. I said, “Gods will help you if you truly believe these words. Maybe you will go back home sooner.”
Another person didn't believe what I said and mocked him. This person had already been detained for nearly a year. He was waiting for his verdict and thought he could be home within a month. However, his verdict came out a few days later and he was sentenced to eight additional months. I told him, “Different attitudes towards Dafa have different consequences.”
Another time I tried to talk to someone but he refused to listen. A tall guy in the same cell became angry and kicked him. When the tall guy asked him whether he agreed to quit the CCP, he shouted, “Yes!”
I said to him, “This doesn't count. You must truly agree to quit from your heart. Not because someone made you.” He said that he truly wanted to quit the Party.
I have been in contact with over 60 detainees, and most of them quit the CCP. Some even wanted me to teach them the Falun Dafa exercises.
There were only a few who didn't believe what I told them. I had a chance to talk to one person only for a night. I told him that a predestined relationship had brought us together, “You came from Guangdong all the way to the north. For whatever reason, we met and you heard me tell you the truth about Falun Dafa, and you now know the magic words. It will save you from disaster in the future. You indeed have a predestined relationship with Dafa.” He smiled.
Someone asked me what level and title I had in Dafa cultivation. I replied, “There are no titles in Dafa. We have one Master and all the rest are practitioners, no matter how long they have been cultivating.”
I was released from the detention center around the time the CCP virus started to spread around China. I felt fortunate to have had the chance to tell people there the facts about Falun Dafa at this critical juncture.
Those who understood the truth will tell their family and friends. I hope they will spread the magic words “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” widely and help more people be saved.
