(Minghui.org) On the first day of the Chinese New Year, whether in rural places or in cities, people always visit one another to extend New Year greetings. But in 2020, I saw very few people on the street on the first day of the Chinese New Year, which felt strange. I later heard that someone had caught the coronavirus in a nearby village, and the village was subsequently locked down.

Our village office began broadcasting the next day, “Don’t go out, don’t gather, just stay at home.” In the afternoon, people were assigned to guard the entrances to the village, and to register the personal information of vehicle occupants.

The Falun Dafa adherents in the neighboring village called us on the sixth day of the lunar New Year. They had begun distributing materials about the practice on a large scale and asked if we wanted some copies of Prophecy of Liu Bowen that they had just acquired. We decided to take 1000 copies. After we picked up the materials, the pain in my knees, that had lasted for days, disappeared.

It Is Imperative to Save People

That afternoon, we put the booklets into bags. Another practitioner and I each distributed 500 copies the following evening.

I started after 9:00 p.m. I listened to the Fa recording on my phone while dispersing the materials, and became more confident. The many villagers who run businesses have dogs and surveillance cameras. Some families have two cameras. The dogs of some families barked before I even got close, and the home owners immediately came out to see what was happening. Some motion-sensing lights suddenly came on. When these things happened, I hid for a while and sent righteous thoughts. I continued working when it was safe again.

With about 80 copies left, a police siren suddenly wailed. I wondered if I had been caught by a surveillance camera and reported to the police. I decided to hide and stay put for a while. My legs were so tired that I could barely move anyway. After sending righteous thoughts for about ten minutes, the police siren could still be heard. I thought, “It is imperative that I save people during the pandemic. Master is protecting me, and the law-guardian gods are also with me. The police won’t find me.” I stopped hiding and continued to distribute the information. I left materials at all the homes in the area. When I returned home, it was almost 2:00 a.m.

Saving People in Other Villages

After we covered our village and two neighboring villages, we decided to distribute materials in the villages north of us. Five of us went this time. After we finished four of the villages, a practitioner told us that three practitioners lived in the fifth northern village, all in their 70s, that we should mobilize to disperse materials locally.

I went to that village looking for the practitioners. All the roads were blocked, so I had to walk on the byways. I walked around for an hour but couldn’t find their homes, so I returned home.

The next day, I obtained the address of a contact and set out. Again the roads were blocked. A villager told me which entrance I could use. When I couldn’t find the address, I asked Master to give me a hint. I finally found the practitioner's home. She told me she would keep 250-300 copies, but the other two practitioners didn’t want to participate in the distribution. She said those people came to her home every day after 6:30 p.m. to study with her. She wanted me to go to her home, attend the group study, and share my cultivation experiences with them.

I went to her home the next evening, taking the book Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. IX with me. We read:

“If I were to end this affair right now, too many future lives would be destroyed. Those people that came down to obtain the Fa, those people that came on account of obtaining the Fa, would have come in vain. Regardless of what those lives are now doing, they were, in the beginning, gods. They saw how terrifying it was here, yet they dared to jump headlong in—they dared to come. Why was that? Because they had hope in the Fa-rectification and Dafa, and they came out of a deep faith. No matter how they are behaving now, we need to look at how things were initially and look at their history-—at how that life once was—and do our utmost to save them. This is the Great Law of the cosmos, after all, and for the countless sentient beings, it's an opportunity that is hard to come by. It is here just this once, and if they can remain, they will remain; if they cannot, then they will disappear forever. So I feel that we need to keep doing this and keep saving them.” (“Fa Teaching at the 2009 Greater New York International Fa Conference”, Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. IX)

After studying together, everyone’s righteous thoughts were reinforced, and all decided to go out and distribute the pamphlets. We each took an equal share.

I returned home after 9:00 p.m. Thinking about what happened, I realized that I followed a different and unfamiliar way, but never lost my way under Master’s guidance. I realized that I would pass by many lookout posts, but when I cycled by, the people on guard were busy eating in tents. If I returned using the same route, I would be stopped and questioned.

Saving More People

About two months later, the road blockades were lifted. I downloaded materials from the Minghui website and printed 560 copies. Four of us drove to the village where the first cases of coronavirus had been reported in our area. We distributed the materials without incident. But we were short about 40 booklets, and decided to return and finish the job later.

We covered two other villages where we hadn’t distributed materials on a large scale before. There were no practitioners in either place. A lot of interesting things happened. We divided into groups of two practitioners. I was with the driver. We lost each other because we were not familiar with the locations, but after I begged Master to help us, I soon found the driver waiting for me by the roadside.

When a dog barked at us loudly. I said to it, “If you want to enter the new cosmos, please remember ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ If you continue to bark and interfere with us, do you know how big a sin you will commit?” It immediately stopped barking. We successfully distributed all the materials.

After that we went to another village, which was the last one we wanted to cover in our area. We noticed there were many surveillance cameras around and every second house had a street lamp. One of the practitioners suggested we go back on a rainy day. We returned during heavy rain wearing raincoats and rain boots and finally fulfilled our wish.

During the past six months, our main task was to distribute as many truth-clarifying materials as possible and save more people during the pandemic. We should be more diligent, save more sentient beings, so as not to disappoint Master.
