Racing Against Time to Save People During the Pandemic
(Minghui.org) Four local practitioners come to my home once a week to read the Falun Dafa teachings together.
Shortly after Chinese New Year, our neighborhood was placed on lockdown due to the Wuhan virus. The weekly meetings at my home stopped. I kept going out to buy groceries and tell people facts about Falun Dafa every day as usual. The guard checked my pass each time I walked in and out of the neighborhood, but I didn't let it bother me.
Everyone on the nearly empty streets wears a mask. Whenever I do see someone, I offer them a pamphlet and say, “I wish you health and safety.” As soon as they take it I clarify the truth to them. Many people gladly quit the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) and its affiliated organizations. I know that we are racing against time to save as many people as possible.
When I phoned a local practitioner and invited her to go grocery shopping with me, she understood what I was asking. I reminded her, “It's urgent for us to save people now. This epidemic does not affect us. We should not stay home. We are Dafa disciples. Our mission is to do the three things at all times. The closer we get to the end, the more critical and serious this is. We should have no fear.” She said, “Thank you for reminding me. I thought everyone was staying at home and no one was outside.”
We agreed to meet every week to share experiences and offer each other support and encouragement.
As the days and weeks passed, people began to relax and more people came out. There were several young people on the streets. I rode my e-bike and brought pamphlets and memory-disks with censorship-bypassing software. Sometimes my daughter accompanies me.
Many young people play with their cellphones as they walk. Since they walk more slowly, I usually walk alongside them, greet them and say, “How are you? Here's something useful – a disk that will help you bypass the Internet censors.” Some are very happy and thank me. Most young people happily take the disks, and very few refuse. Almost everyone in China knows that the CCP media is broadcasting fake news. They're glad to have the software to access overseas information.
The lockdown in our city ended yesterday. Now practitioners can come out for group Fa study again.
I hope that all practitioners will support and encourage each other on the path of cultivation and cooperate with each other. Let us be more diligent so we can save more people.
