(Minghui.org) In October 2019, Mary's cheerful and upbeat husband suddenly became extremely depressed. He started suffering from insomnia and didn't want to go to work. “Life is no longer worth living!” he would complain.

Seeing that her husband's depression was spiraling out of control, she took him to a local hospital. Several days later, the couple decided to leave the hospital, since the medications he was given did little to improve his condition.

As a Falun Gong practitioner, Mary thought: “There has to be a reason this is happening. It definitely didn't occur by accident!”

She repeatedly asked him, “Is there was anything that you did wrong that you didn't tell me about?” Finally, her husband told her about his past misdeeds.

One day, while Mary was distributing Falun Gong-related fliers in public, someone reported her to the police. She was later arrested and taken to a detention center. The police then went to Mary's home and intimidated her husband.

Even though Mary had been incarcerated in forced labor camps twice before, her husband had never complained and still supported her in practicing Falun Gong.

This time, however, was different. “I was so afraid that you'd be imprisoned again that I threw away over 10 Falun Gong books that you had at home,” he confided.

“That was no trivial matter!” Mary exclaimed. “Destroying Dafa books is a crime against Dafa. You must write a statement sincerely apologizing to Master Li Hongzhi (the founder of Falun Gong). You must sincerely repent. Since Master is compassionate, he'll forgive you and your problem might soon go away.”

“I now know the seriousness of what I did and that it was a mistake,” he said.

He wrote a solemn statement saying that what he had done was an error in judgment and that he now declared it null and void. He also added that he would make up for any losses he had caused by supporting Dafa.

Mary and her husband then asked a fellow practitioner to quickly send the statement to Minghui.org.

Her husband had a very restful sleep that night and woke up feeling very refreshed. His depression completely disappeared, too!

He now practices Falun Gong and reads Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Gong, with his wife.
