(Minghui.org) Mr. Wang is married to a Falun Dafa practitioner. He does not say much, but all his friends and neighbors respect him and say he is a good and sincere person.
Soon after Mr. Wang’s wife started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997, her health problems were resolved, and she became sincere, kind, patient, and selfless. Because she always considered others first, she got on well with all the neighbors, and her family became harmonious as well. Mr. Wang witnessed how she changed and was grateful to Falun Dafa’s principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Whenever possible, he told people that Falun Dafa was good.
In 1999, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched the persecution of Falun Dafa. Mr. Wang’s wife has been illegally arrested and detained many times during the past 22 years of the persecution. She was detained five times in 2000 alone, the longest time for over 50 days. Mr. Wang once had 5,000 yuan extorted from him because his wife practices Falun Dafa.
Although Mr. Wang was frightened and concerned about his wife’s safety, his attitude toward Dafa has always been positive. He knows Falun Dafa is good. He respects Falun Dafa, its founder Master Li Hongzhi, and all practitioners.
Over the past 22 years, he has never interfered with his wife’s practice or prevented her from clarifying the truth. He shouldered all the burdens to support the family while his wife was detained, and he always visited her. Once when the guards did not let him see her, he dared to argue with them and said, “Go to my village and ask around. No one would say my wife is not a good person. It’s awful that you guys persecute good people.”
In December 2001, New Tang Dynasty (NTD) TV started broadcasting programs into China. Although the CCP did everything it could to block it, more and more people wanted to watch NTD programs. Few practitioners in Mr. Wang’s city and surrounding cities knew how to install the satellite dishes to receive NTD.
Mr. Wang wanted to watch the NTD programs himself, so he asked a practitioner to install a satellite dish at his house. However, no matter how hard the practitioner tried, he couldn’t get a signal and said he’d have to come back the next day to work on it.
Mr. Wang is a hands-on person. He tried to fix it himself, and he did. Mr. Wang was very excited. His wife was, too, and then asked if he would volunteer to learn the technology and help people install the satellite dishes. Mr. Wang had always wanted to do something for Falun Dafa, so he agreed without hesitation. From then on, Mr. Wang has helped people install NTD television satellite dishes.
Mr. Wang mastered the technology by learning it by himself. Sometimes he sat up until 1 a.m. to solve a problem. Through hard work, he became more and more skillful at installing satellite dishes.
After Mr. Wang mastered the skills, he experimented at practitioners’ homes. Then he started installing dishes for people in his village and then in the surrounding villages. Mr. Wang received orders by word of mouth. Sometimes he had to install satellite dishes for people who lived several miles away.
Mr. Wang usually has to stay on the roof adjusting the signals for several hours to get it right, whatever the weather. He often skips meals.
Installing satellite dishes is a paid job in the marketplace, but Mr. Wang does it for free. He never charges for travel expenses or his labor. Mr. Wang only asks to be reimbursed for the cost of the materials. He does not even ask to be paid for the small parts he purchases with his own money. To save people money and get the best results, Mr. Wang did a lot of research. He chose a vendor who guaranteed the quality of the basic materials at reasonable prices. In the early years, Mr. Wang traveled by motorcycle to install the satellite dishes, but it was not convenient to load up and carry all the hardware needed. Mr. Wang then purchased a car.
Mr. Wang has a busy full-time job. He also takes care of his mother in her 80s. But over the years, he has never declined or put off people’s requests to install satellite dishes.
A practitioner once tried to insist that he accept payment for his labor, but Mr. Wang refused. He said, “You practitioners risk your lives. You spend your own money and time to inform people of the truth. I know Falun Dafa is good. So should I then charge a fee for my labor to help people watch NTD programs and learn more about Falun Dafa? I would never charge people for doing this.”
Mr. Wang not only installs satellite dishes for free, he also provides free customer service to upgrade or repair the equipment. To make sure people can watch NTD during the New Year, he even schedules routine maintenance in December.
On Chinese New Year’s Eve in 2020, when Mr. Wang’s family was preparing New Year’s dinner, someone called for service. Mr. Wang drove dozens of miles to fix the issue. He remembered another person nearby on his way back, so he stopped in there to check on the dish and missed lunch. There was indeed a problem that the family did not realize, so Mr. Wang fixed that dish, too.
The CCP banned NTD programs to silence that source of information and keep the Chinese in the dark. The CCP screens for NTD satellite dishes and removes them by force, but that does not frighten Mr. Wang. He firmly believes that Falun Dafa is good and feels that helping people know the truth is the most righteous thing he can do.
Mr. Wang’s hard work has helped many people learn about Falun Dafa and the persecution. He installed a satellite dish for a barbershop. As customers learned the truth when they had their haircut, they told other people to go to the barbershop and watch NTD programs.
Mr. Wang is never deterred by the weather or fatigue when he installs satellite dishes. Sometimes he’s spent several hours on someone’s roof, searching for a signal. In the summer he gets tanned, and in the winter his hands go numb even with gloves on.
Mr. Wang has met many different kinds of people through the years installing satellite dishes.
One man who asked him for a dish changed his mind just after Mr. Wang had unloaded all the hardware and was ready to install it. Not only that, he was rude. Mr. Wang did not complain or say anything and just left quietly.
Another time, a practitioner’s family member changed her mind after Mr. Wang had unloaded everything. She even started to curse Mr. Wang. He did not say anything and put the materials back into his car. As he was about to drive away, she changed her mind again and wanted him to install the dish. Mr. Wang unloaded the hardware again as if nothing had happened and quickly installed the satellite dish.
Some people thought the dish was free and refused to pay for the materials. When he encountered these unreasonable people, he never got angry or gave it a second thought. In his mind, all the hardship was worth it as long as those people could watch truth-clarification programs.
After Mr. Wang retired, he was hired by a company due to his well-known work ethic. Mr. Wang soon installed an NTD satellite dish on the construction site. He turned on the TV during breaks, and many workers learned the facts about Falun Dafa by watching NTD programs.
Mr. Wang works full-time as an operator in a mine and has to work underground. He has encountered several life-threatening situations, but each time he’s been safe and sound. Once there was a landslide. The forklift he was driving was smashed, but he was unharmed. He said, “I always carry a Dafa amulet with me and say ‘Falun Dafa is good’ as soon as I enter the mine. I know Master protects me.”
Mr. Wang’s wife said, “My husband is such a sincere person. Everyone thinks he is contributing his time and effort for nothing, but he feels he’s benefited a lot from Falun Dafa.”
Mr. Wang said, “It’s true. I think I’ve benefited a lot. Falun Gong gave me a good wife and a warm and happy home. Master protects me when I am in danger. When I see how much Falun Dafa practitioners sacrifice to help people know the truth, I am inspired to do more.”
