Village Officials Blessed for Treating Falun Dafa Practitioners Kindly
(Minghui.org) A couple who practice Falun Dafa in Heilongjiang Province often clarified the truth about Dafa. Many people quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations, and the village officials believed in Dafa, and admired Dafa practitioners very much.
The male practitioner of the family went to a village office one day. The Party secretary saw him, beckoned him over, and asked to tell him what the three withdrawals were all about. The practitioner told him, and the Party secretary agreed to quit the CCP.
During a town meeting the local government announced plans to arrest Dafa practitioners in the near future. They demanded that each village submit their list of Falun Dafa practitioners living in that village. The town official asked if there were any practitioners in our village. The village accountant responded, “There is none in our village.” The accountant had already quit the Party, and knew that Falun Dafa is good.
Those village officials never harassed Falun Dafa practitioners, and instead protected them. The village Party secretary asked upper-level officials to leave, and not let them visit practitioners' homes.
Every time the village Party secretary drove the car and saw a practitioner, he would beep his horn, pull over, roll down the window, and greet them.
He sent a text message to this male practitioner wishing him a Happy New Year during the 2014 New Year. The practitioner was moved, and called the village Party secretary to express his New Year greetings.
The police notified each village office that they planned to go to every practitioner's home in 2017. But the village officials turned them away and didn't even mention this to the practitioners in the area.
A practitioner was asked to clean the village offices one time. He saw a document in one of the offices stating that five or six village officials each have a responsibility to monitor a specific practitioner, and that they were not to allow the practitioner to leave the village.
This document was never enforced by the village officials. They had never informed the practitioners about these orders from higher authorities.
Those village officials have since been rewarded. The village Party secretary was promoted to the town head; and the village accountant has retired, and is enjoying a happy life.
New Village Officials Arrive
The village administration changes every five years. Between December 2019 and March 2020 new village officials went to the homes of Falun Dafa practitioners twice with police officers from the city to perform so-called “official duties.”
The male practitioner greeted them at the gate and gestured them to come in. They said: “No need. We'll stay outside, and talk to you over the wall.”
One of the police officers held a guarantee statement in his hand and asked, “Are you still practicing Falun Dafa?”
The male practitioner said that he was. The police officer turned to the practitioner's wife, and asked, “Are you still practicing Falun Dafa?”
The wife answered: “Yes. We are both still practicing such a good cultivation practice. We recovered from all of our illnesses. For more than 20 years, we haven't taken any medicine. Should we not practice?” The couple then told the officers more about Falun Dafa, and about the self immolation incident on Tiananmen Square, and explained in detail the suspicious points of the “self-immolation.”She explained that it was fabricated by the CCP. They listened carefully.
Finally, the policeman said: “I asked you not to practice, and you won't do it. I asked you to sign the document, and you won't do it. Then forget it. We came here because we were told to do so. We didn't want to come. We are just doing our job. Okay, I'll just say you were not at home.” Then, they left.
