(Minghui.org) A Suiling County, Heilongjiang Province resident experienced quick recovery of her health after she took up Falun Gong, a mind-body practice with slow moving exercises and the core tenets of Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance.

With renewed good health, Ms. Zhao Shubo took on the farm work at home and cared for her family. Despite the fact that her mother-in-law used to treat her badly, she didn’t take it to heart and took care of her after she became sick. When the elderly woman suffered severe constipation, Ms. Zhao manually removed the stool for her. Her kindness moved her mother-in-law and she often praised her in front of others. 

Due to Falun Gong’s immense popularity, the Chinese communist regime launched a nationwide persecution of the practice in July 1999, which has continued to this day.

In August 2020, Ms. Zhao was arrested for practicing Falun Gong and was detained at the Shuangyashan City Detention Center. The authorities attempted to force her to renounce Falun Gong, but she refused to betray her faith. In retaliation, the local court later sentenced Ms. Zhao to five months. She was released on January 10, 2021 after serving the full time.
