(Minghui.org) I began to practice Falun Dafa in 1996. Within two months, all my illnesses were gone. I could walk normally and with agility.

Before that, I had serious cardiac anxiety disorder, autonomic dysfunction, and Ménière's disease. As a result, I had chronic fatigue, insomnia, and a stroke, and often fainted. Because of this, I was often on sick leave at work and my husband always traveled around for the best doctors hoping to treat me. All these also affected his work performance.

Before every business trip, my husband would worry about how to tell me about his upcoming absence. As soon as I heard, I would faint from the stress of being left at home alone. It was a nightmare for my entire family.

It was Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, who saved me. He has given me good health, helped me to become a better person, and guided me on the path of returning to my origin. At almost 70, I am now healthier than some young people in their 20s. I do everything in the family including household chores and taking care of my grandchildren and elderly mother. My family, neighbors, and coworkers have all seen this.

In my spare time I often share with people my positive experiences with Falun Dafa and debunk the hate propaganda against the practice perpetuated by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). I also urge people to separate themselves from the CCP organizations for a better future. Below are some examples.

“I Will Do Whatever You Tell Me to Do”

Once I talked with three people about Dafa in front of a store. From traditional Chinese moral values to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance cherished by Falun Dafa practitioners, I told them what Falun Dafa really is and why the CCP’s persecution of Dafa is illegal.

An older man who had been listening quietly suddenly began to talk. “What you said makes a lot of sense,” he said. “I will do whatever you tell me to do.”

“Many people have become morally corrupt,” I said sincerely. “If more people could remember the importance of being good, it will help both them and society in general.”

I then told him to keep in mind the phrases “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

He was very touched and said he would remember them.

Right at that moment, a car pulled over to pick him up. Upon leaving, he was still repeating the two phrases.

This example shows that people are waiting to hear about Falun Dafa from us practitioners. So whenever I talk to people, I always tell them about Dafa so that they can be saved.

“I Will Help Others Do the Same”

One time I chatted with a street vendor who sold sticky rice balls. After learning what Falun Dafa is and how the CCP had been persecuting the practice, he immediately agreed to quit the CCP organizations.

Then I gave him a USB drive with videos about Falun Dafa and said, “This is priceless.” I told him that many people feel lost in their lives and that this information would help them. I also hope he could copy the USB drive and pass it on to others, just like I did.

He was convinced. After a while, he packed up his table. “I will go back home now and watch it when I eat,” he said. “I will also tell more people about it because this is so critical.”

I was moved by his words and saw hope for our society.

Government Official Removes the Party Emblem

One time I explained to someone the benefits of Falun Dafa, how the CCP abuses China’s justice system to arrest and torture practitioners, how the persecution has killed practitioners and torn their families apart, and how the regime has even killed practitioners and sold their organs for transplants.

“Do you know I am a government official who came here to do an inspection?” he asked me while showing his ID.

“That is fine,” I replied. “You know, no matter what kind of job we do, our health and safety are always the most important.”

When I talked about quitting the CCP organizations for a safe future, he immediately agreed. He also removed the Party emblem he was wearing and said he would watch videos in the USB drive I gave him.

Delayed Wages

I met a man in the elevator and we chatted. “The CCP is really corrupt, and officials take all the money and leave nearly nothing for us,” he said. “My employer hasn’t had money to pay me in the past few months. Without payment, I don’t have heat anymore.”

I nodded and added that the CCP’s brutality has affected everyone in society, especially Falun Dafa practitioners. To make things worse, I said, the regime has made up many lies to stir up hatred towards Falun Dafa. I explained why people should sever their ties to the CCP.

He told me he was a Party member and was willing to quit the CCP. Right at that moment, the elevator doors opened and we said good-bye to each other.

Deputy Police Chief

One summer evening, a man was sitting alone by the street. I greeted him and we began to talk. Upon hearing he was from another city, I asked if there were many Falun Dafa practitioners in his region. He said yes. In fact, he was the deputy police chief there and many practitioners had been arrested.

“You know, those practitioners are innocent people. You won’t give them a hard time, will you?” I asked.

We talked for a while. He asked why detained practitioners would go on hunger strikes. “Because they had been wronged,” I explained. I said Falun Dafa practitioners want to be better citizens by following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.

“The CCP has not only arrested these innocent people but also forced them to renounce their faith,” I continued. “They were mistreated for no reason and there is no place for them to appeal. That is why they are taking this peaceful approach to demand their basic rights.”

As we continued talking, I answered all the questions he had. He then agreed to quit the CCP. “This is a special day for me, and I will remember it well,” he said. “In fact, my wife has poor health. I will recommend these [Falun Dafa] exercises to her too.”

“I Finally Found You”

Once I met a retired government official. After we talked about Falun Dafa and the persecution, he agreed to quit the CCP organizations. In addition to the materials I gave him, he also asked for a copy of Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa. I gave him a copy and he was very happy.

When I passed by that place a month later, I saw someone quickly walking toward me. It was the official.

“After I met you last time, I came here every day waiting for you,” he said. “I finally found you!”

He said the CCP is vicious and he wanted to make sure I was safe.

I thanked him and reminded him to keep in mind the phrases “Falun Dafa is good” “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He agreed and thanked Master Li for introducing Falun Dafa to the public.

Later on, he went back to his former workplace and talked with a person who used to practice Falun Dafa. After explaining to the coworker what he had heard, this official also urged the coworker to resume practicing Falun Dafa. “It’s so good. You should keep doing it!”

The Words “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance”

This March, a middle-aged woman asked me where the nearest pharmacy was. I told her the location and told her a little about Dafa as well. “If you remember and recite the phrases ‘Falun Dafa is good’ and ‘Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,’ you will be blessed,” I said.

Upon hearing the words “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance”, her eyes lit up. Holding my hands, her eyes were moist with tears rolling down her cheeks.

“I know you have been waiting for these words,” I said. “We need good people in this world. Trust me, they will be blessed.”

These words cheered her up, and we continued talking. She was willing to quit the CCP and thanked me several times.

On a summer day, I saw two men outside a restaurant and talked with them. They were on a business trip from Tianjin. “It’s so hot today. How come you’re still walking around instead of staying inside?” one of them asked.

I told them I could not just sit and do nothing when so many innocent people were being persecuted for their belief. Since the CCP began to persecute Falun Dafa in July 1999, tens of millions of practitioners have been arrested and tortured, I told them.

Both of them were impressed and thanked Master Li for introducing Dafa to the public.

“After going back home, I will click ‘like’ for Falun Dafa online,” one of them said.

“Me too!” another one said. “I will also vote for Falun Dafa!”

Police Officer: I Don’t Care About Surveillance and Will Quit the Party

I live in northeastern China and we make pickled vegetables each year. On the third day of the Chinese New Year holiday in 2010, several friends came to visit me and enjoy my homemade dumplings with pickled vegetable fillings. I prepared some DVDs and other materials for them and talked about Dafa during the meal.

One of them was an officer working in the local criminal police division. He called out in the yard, “I will quit the CCP!”

When looking around, he saw surveillance cameras installed by village officials.

“Well, I don’t care about the surveillance. I will quit the Party!” he shouted.

Several others also said they’d quit the CCP.

“I don’t want to be left behind. I will quit too!” one woman said.

A Buddhist in her 40s was very happy to hear about Dafa and its principles of “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.”

“You are so nice and are like a Bodhisattva,” she said.

Salute to Falun Dafa

In one clothing store I went to, the owner was very nice and recommended all kinds of clothes. I said the store was very clean and neat, and she was pleased. She told me she used to be in the military and opened the store after retiring.

I told her about my belief in Falun Dafa, which people in over 100 countries practice. I also explained how badly practitioners in China have been persecuted since 1999.

Giving her a USB drive, I said, “With this, you can go online and read uncensored information. By supporting the innocent and the upright, you will be blessed.”

“Thank you so much!” she said. She gave me a salute and accepted the USB drive with both hands.

“Please do not thank me,” I replied, “It is Master Li who told us to do this and save people.”

She replied, “Thank you, Master!”

Arrested for Shouting “Falun Dafa is Good”

Jin Guang was a friend. After I explained to him what Falun Dafa is and the CCP’s crimes in persecuting practitioners, he decided to quit the Party. When I met him again, it was a cold day and he was bald. “What’s going on? Aren’t you cold?” I asked.

He said he had been to Beijing and called out “Falun Dafa is good” at Tiananmen Square. Because of that, he was arrested and kept at Haidian Detention Center for 15 days. I was very touched by his sincere support.

Jin said that, the 610 Office harassed him several times after he came back, asking where he got the Falun Dafa materials. In order to protect me, he said he found them on the roadside.

Again I thanked him for his support and asked, “I have some updated materials. Do you want some?”

“Sure!” he replied without hesitation.

Japanese Visitor: Falun Dafa is Unbeatable

Once I saw a well-dressed gentleman. When I asked if he had joined the CCP, he replied, “I’m Japanese.”

As we continued talking, he said he often saw Falun Dafa practitioners doing the exercises in public but had never seen any practitioners in China doing that. He had thought no one practiced Falun Dafa anymore in China. I told him it’s the CCP that forbids practitioners from doing the exercises in public. I also said the persecution policy cannot change practitioners’ minds and that many practitioners like me are still persevering in their faith.

He was surprised to hear there is still Falun Dafa in China after so many years of suppression.

I suggested he watch Shen Yun shows in Japan, and he said happily that he had just watched a show not long before he came to China.

He said he would tell people that Falun Dafa is unbeatable upon returning to Japan. “Please also take good care of yourself,” he said sincerely.
