(Minghui.org) My name is Defu (alias). I am 75 years old. My wife is a Falun Dafa practitioner. Although I am not a practitioner, everyone in our family agrees that Falun Dafa is precious and a Fa of high virtue. We all support her in her cultivation. Thus, our whole family has benefited from Dafa, and we feel grateful to Master for his compassion.

Recovery from Cerebral Thrombosis Twice

I developed cerebral thrombosis in 2002. I had minor symptoms and recovered within about two months. Then I relapsed in 2007. This time, I experienced more severe symptoms. I had trouble lifting my leg when walking, and I also limped. I had trouble using chopsticks when eating, and could only use spoons. I was hospitalized for a few days. Although I was given injections and medications, one could barely notice any improvement. After I was discharged, my wife asked me to sincerely recite “Falun Dafa is wonderful! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is wonderful!” She told me that Master Li Hongzhi could help me recover from my illness.

I knew that Falun Dafa teaches Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and believed what my wife said. From then on, every morning, I stood in front of Master’s portraits at home, did Heshi to pay my respects to Master, and sincerely recited “Falun Dafa is wonderful! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is wonderful!” While I was reciting it, I suddenly saw Master’s portrait shining brightly and flashing, which was very exciting. My wife said it was because Master saw my sincerity and encouraged me.

Except for sleeping and taking showers, I did not take off my amulet with “Falun Dafa is wonderful!” written on it. Whenever I was walking or resting, I also recited it. I was fully recovered within 3 months. More than 10 years have passed. I had not relapsed during that time. Now, I am in good health, have a rosy complexion, and very little wrinkles in my face. Nobody can tell that I am in my 70s.

Fixing the Roof

Some of the tiles on the roof of my home fell off, which caused leaks when it rains. Nowadays young men from the countryside go out of town to take odd jobs, hoping to make lots of money. Thus, I could not find a local handyman to fix the roof. So I decided to take care of it on my own. When my wife saw me quickly climbing up the roof, she was very happy and helped by handing me materials. Soon enough, the roof was fixed.

When my neighbor saw that, he was dumbfounded, saying, “Wow, this old man has guts! That’s too dangerous for him!” But I felt rest assured, as I kept reciting “Falun Dafa is wonderful!” and believed Master would safeguard me.

Safe during Covid

During the outbreak of Covid19 in 2020, our family was safe and sound. Our local townships and villages were under lock-down, and the public transit was closed down. As I had to run some important errands at a place about 15 miles away, I rode my bicycle and spent most of the day in going back and forth. Meanwhile, I also carried 30 pounds of goods on the back of bicycle. After it was done, I didn’t feel tired.

I always thought about one thing: Despite the so-called modernization, society would become paralyzed during a true calamity. Nothing can be relied upon but Dafa. Only by believing in Dafa, can people be saved, which is the biggest guarantee and the source of true happiness.

One Can See Who Is Right and Who Is Evil

My wife began to practice Falun Dafa in 1997. Within three months she had recovered from her migraines, heart arrhythmia, and breast enlargement without receiving any treatment.

During the past couple of years, I also liked to check out the informational materials and brochures that practitioners distributed. Particularly, I liked to listen to the Minghui podcast. Every time when my wife made dumplings and steamed buns we would listen to these podcasts, including when we ate.

The podcasts were an eye-opener for me. They were very beneficial and helped me understand a lot about being a human being, as well as the Chinese divine culture of 5,000 years. After I heard these programs, the false accusations and slander against Master and Falun Dafa by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) media became self-defeating. Also it is clear to see who is right and who is evil, who is good and who is bad.

Every time when we went shopping, we always used truth-clarification currency, which has “Falun Dafa is wonderful! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is wonderful!” printed on the back of small notes. Sometimes when my wife was too busy, I gave her a hand in folding, cutting informational materials, or putting them up. These were things that I was willing to do. Also they were something I could take on, and what I should do, as I also wanted to make my contribution in helping save sentient beings.

Protecting Dafa and Its Practitioners

I’m a very stubborn person. I also don’t like to be criticized, and get very upset if someone criticizes me. If someone wanted to make negative comments about my wife, I would end up arguing with that person. Whoever wanted to say something negative about Dafa and Master, I wouldn’t let them do that either. I’d fight with that person for sure.

I know clearly that Falun Dafa is a high-virtue Fa, It has spread to more than 100 countries and regions throughout the world. It is highly respected and enjoyed by people of many ethnic groups worldwide.

Master Li Hongzhi is the most respectable person; Falun Dafa teaches “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.” Dafa practitioners are good people. They are honest and kind despite today’s materialistic society. They are not greedy and don’t take things that don't belong to them. In addition, they are tolerant and selfless.

In order to save sentient beings, they work tirelessly and can sacrifice everything. They also wouldn’t fight back when being beaten, or talk back when being cursed at. Nowadays only Master Li’s disciples can do that. Doesn’t such a wonderful Master deserve our respect? Aren't such wonderful practitioners worth our admiration? Falun Dafa only brings benefits to people without the slightest harm.

Our whole family has benefited from Dafa greatly. Given that, our gratitude is beyond words. Everyone in our family has decided to quit the CCP over 10 years ago. All of us also support my wife in her cultivation. Therefore, we have been truly blessed and received a great deal of good fortune.

Generation after generation, our family has been hard-working farmers. Now all of our children have good jobs, and some are business managers. Some of our grandchildren either study at a prestigious universities, or have joined the workforce after graduation, earning a decent income.

My friend said to me, “Your family lives a happy life and you have good health. Your children also do well. Such a family like you is really enviable!” Our villagers give us a thump-up, saying, “People who practice Dafa are truly blessed!”
