How Did Hog Farmers in One Chinese Town Keep Their Herds Safe from African Swine Fever?
(Minghui.org) China's battle with African Swine Fever (ASF) started in August 2018. After the disease spread rapidly throughout the country, million of pigs were killed and thousands of farmers suffered huge losses. However, in a small town in Suining City, Sichuan Province, hog farmers were not affected by ASF. We learned that they all had one thing in common.
The first farmer has two separate farms, with 900 pigs and 400 pigs, respectively. Normally, the pigs on the larger farm would consume over 70 bags of feed a day. But one day, the pigs showed ASF symptoms and ate less and less. Later, the large herd only consumed 30 bags of feed. The farmer was very anxious, since all of his pigs might be killed if the situation didn't get better.
He thought of asking for help from Falun Dafa practitioners because he knew they always helped people. A practitioner, also a farmer, came to the farm. The practitioner suggested that the farmer sincerely recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Since the farmer was already aware of how wonderful Falun Dafa was and how the Chinese Communist Party has been brutally persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners since 1999, he started to recite the phrases without any hesitation. His family also followed suit.
A couple of days later, he saw the situation improve. The pigs started to eat more and more. Finally, all of the pigs recovered, seemingly miraculously. The farmer couldn't be more thankful to Falun Dafa and its founder, Master Li. He donated several hundred Yuan to practitioners for them to produce more truth-clarifying materials. He said he wanted more people to become aware of the wonderfulness of Dafa and thus be blessed just like him.
A woman in the same town was raising pigs too. When the ASF started, she sincerely recited the above-mentioned phrases frequently, and none of her pigs were infected. She'd learned the phrases a year ago from a Falun Dafa practitioner and she believed the practitioner's words.
Two other farms in the same town also had no pigs affected by the ASF. People were very curious as to why this was the case. Later, they found out that the farmers had quit the Chinese Communist Party and its associated organizations upon learning from a Falun Dafa practitioner about the CCP's persecution of Falun Dafa.
A butcher also kept all his pigs safe. He told others that his secret was that he often recited “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” and sincerely believed that Falun Dafa offers salvation to all.
