(Minghui.org) I was born in a small, impoverished, and isolated village in Heilongjiang Province.

Before I practiced Falun Dafa, I could not do any manual labor because I had various illnesses. My husband had to shoulder all the burdens. I became healthy and strong after I practiced Dafa. My three children saw the changes in me and practiced Dafa as well. We saved tens of thousands of yuan in medical expenses, which would have been a heavy burden for our family.

I only went to school for a few years. However, I could understand the Fa principles because Master explained these profound principles in simple and plain language in Zhuan Falun. Sometimes if I did not understand a sentence, I suddenly understood it after repeatedly reading it.

For example, Master said,

“Cultivation depends on one’s own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one’s master.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun)

I didn’t know what this meant. After I then read it ten times, the characters suddenly turned red and started to bounce. I understood the surface meaning of this sentence.

When I encountered difficulties or tribulations, I would read Zhuan Falun. The Fa would guide me to conduct myself according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and I was able to handle difficult situations.

Falun Covered My Vegetable Field

Society's moral standards have been rapidly declining, and this has also happened in my village. Most people here are poor, and stealing has been a common phenomenon. Some peasants always steal other people’s vegetables so they can sell them and make more money. As a result, many people build sheds in their fields and sleep there at night to watch over their crops and vegetables during the harvest season.

We plant cabbage as one of our income sources. One year there was too much rain, so the other villagers had no cabbage to harvest. However, the cabbage in my field grew very well and thus caught the attention of some thieves.

One day, I noticed a villager and his wife walking back and forth along my field for a long time. I knew they were looking at my good cabbages so they could come and steal them at night. My husband did not want to watch our field at night, so I was worried.

I had no choice but to calm down and study the Fa. Master said,

“If something is yours, you will not lose it. If something is not yours, you will not have it even if you fight for it.” (Lecture Seven, Zhuan Falun)

I immediately understood that I would not lose anything if it belonged to me. I felt relieved and thanked Master for his hint.

I had a vivid dream that night. I saw a huge blue Falun cover my field. The thief wandered around but could not find my field, and I did not lose any vegetables.

Your Children Are the Best in the Village

All my three children followed Master’s teachings and always thought of others’ needs before their own. They are kind to everyone and always give a hand when other people need help. They are all very self-disciplined and conduct themselves well in all circumstances. Our village accountant told other people, “How did she educate her children? Her three children are the best in our village.”

For example, my parents-in-law favor my son because he is the only boy in my family. They always saved good food for him. But my son always gave the good food back to his grandparents and said, “Grandma and grandpa, you are the senior people in our family, so you should eat the best food. I will have my share when we have more in the future.” My parents-in-law were deeply touched.

Injured Leg Recovers

There is a young man named Xiao in my village. Xiao’s father was addicted to alcohol. He drank all day and did not do anything at home except beat his wife. Xiao’s mom could not stand the family violence and had to leave. Following his mom, Xiao’s elder brother left home as well. Xiao’s father eventually died from alcohol addiction.

In 2009, when Xiao was 23 years old, he was diagnosed with vasculitis and his toes started to rot. His mother wanted to take care of him, but she dared not return home until his father died.

However, it was too late by the time Xiao’s mother borrowed money and sent him to the hospital. He had to have an amputation. But his mother only borrowed enough money to have surgery on one leg. They could not afford the hospital expenses, so he had to go home.

Xiao’s mom had no money to buy medication or even enough food for him. This poor woman tearfully left her son at home and had to go out and work. She bought rice, a rice cooker, oil, and salt for him.

Xiao could not move much with a rotting leg. He had no choice and relieved himself in the room. His house became extremely dirty and smelly. The poor boy did not even have pickles, sauce, or anything else to eat except plain rice and salt. When winter came, he had no coal and the house was freezing cold.

When I heard what happened, I went to Xiao’s house right away. First, I cleaned his house. Then I bought coals to heat his house. I made food at my home and brought it to him every day to help him survive the cold winter in northeastern China.

I told him about Falun Dafa and gave him a copy of Zhuan Falun. He read the book and understood that Dafa is good.

Then, his fate changed. To his surprise, his rotting leg recovered without any further treatment.

Xiao’s mom returned just before Chinese New Year. She was delighted to see her son no longer suffering. She was very grateful to me and purchased many gifts. I wanted to give the gifts back but did not want to hurt their feelings, so I gave Xiao some money as a New Year’s gift. They were incredibly grateful.

Daughter’s Ex Mother in Law: Your Daughter Is the Best

My second daughter married a man whose whole family are Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members. They forced my daughter to give up practicing Falun Dafa, even though they knew she was a good wife and a good daughter-in-law. Her husband’s sister and mother always beat her when her husband was not at home to force her to give up practicing.

Once, her husband’s sister even called the police and told them to arrest my daughter because she practiced Falun Dafa. Eventually, her husband’s family forced them to divorce, and they forbade my daughter to see my granddaughter. In order not to let my daughter see her child, they took the child to another province. Soon after, my granddaughter became ill. The hospital said it was hard to cure.

My daughter’s ex-parents-in-law did not want to keep the child and sent her back to my daughter. Under our care, only after a few days, my granddaughter’s symptoms disappeared. My daughter’s ex-parents-in-law took the child back when they heard about it.

However, a few days later, my daughter’s ex-mother-in-law called again and wanted her to pick up the child. It turned out that my granddaughter had bad constipation. Medications did not help. When my granddaughter came back, I told her to ask for Master’s help. Another practitioner also came to help comfort my granddaughter and took care of her. My granddaughter no longer felt nervous and uncomfortable and was soon fine.

In 2011, my second daughter was taken to a forced labor camp for one and a half years because she distributed Shen Yun CDs. During that time, her ex-mother-in-law called me and asked for money. She said both my granddaughter and she were sick, but they had no money to see the doctor.

I took the first bus the following day to her home and gave her one thousand yuan. I also gave her informational materials and told her about Falun Dafa again. She told me her family had no money at all because her brother borrowed 700,000 yuan and did not sign a note to repay her. This was her entire family’s savings. She sued her brother but lost the case because she did not have a note from him promising to repay her.

A month later, she called me again, asking for another thousand yuan. I again took the first bus and gave her the money. She told her neighbor with a smile, “This is my granddaughter’s grandma. Look how energetic she is. She practices Falun Dafa.”

At that time, my daughter’s ex-father-in-law said, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good! All my family are Party members. We will all quit the CCP today.” My daughter’s ex-mother-in-law said, “The money you gave me all had messages about Dafa. When I spent it, I told everyone Falun Dafa is good. I also gave out the flyers and calendars to my relatives. I no longer felt ill. Isn’t that a miracle?”

I brought money with messages about Dafa and without and asked her to choose. She took the bills with the messages.

She then told me she did not like her current daughter-in-law. She said my daughter is a much better woman and she wanted her son to divorce and remarry my daughter.

I said earnestly, “My daughter is a good person. But you should learn how to be a tolerant mother-in-law and not break up your son’s family again. It is painful for my daughter to lose her husband and child because of your interference. I don’t want this suffering to happen to your current daughter-in-law and her child. I hope your son can settle down with his current wife and child and have a happy family.”

After a while, her current daughter-in-law came and brought a roast chicken and pork for us. I knew she heard about my visit and came to find out my attitude. She stood at the door and said to her mother-in-law, “Mom, please take it for the guest.” She said it three times, but her mother-in-law didn’t say a word and did not ask her to come in. I went to the door and said, “Can I take it over for your mom?” She said, “Yes, thank you, auntie.”

I then said, “Don’t worry. My daughter won’t come back to this home to separate you and your husband. We all want you and your child to have a settled family and not divorce.” She hurriedly said, “Thank you! Thank you!”

Older Daughter’s Father-in-Law: “Falun Dafa is Good”

My older daughter’s parents-in-law worked out of town for the past two years. We gathered before the Chinese New Year. Her father-in-law said, “What a sad year! I was slapped in the face recently.” It turned out he borrowed money for his nephew from other relatives two years ago. His nephew could not repay the money, and the debt rolled over to 70,000 yuan with interest. He had to repay the debt, and that’s why he had to work at his old age. But he only made 7,000 yuan in two years. So his debtor slapped him when they could not collect the money.

I said, “Don’t worry. There is always a way to solve the problem.” I asked my son-in-law (his son) if he could give his father some money. His son said, “Why me? I have two older brothers, and they both should help.” I said,” You are also your father’s son. You should help your father.” He said, “No, I don’t even have money to build my own house yet.” I said, “Nobody will laugh at you if you live in the old house, but it is a good thing to help with your father.” He said, “I wanted to use my savings to buy a small truck for my fieldwork.” I said, “You can use mine. And we will all come and give you a hand when needed.”

I then asked my daughter for her opinion. She practiced Dafa when she was young, and the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance were rooted deeply in her heart. Without any hesitation, she said she had just made 32,000 yuan by selling flax and that she would give it all to her father-in-law. Although it was not enough to pay off all the debt, her father-in-law could pay back a portion to each family.

My older daughter’s father-in-law repeatedly thanked me and asked his wife, “You are a Christian. Could you do this?” She said, “No, I couldn’t.” He said, “Let’s all practice Falun Dafa. Falun Dafa is good!”

He called his other two sons and told them he had paid back a portion of the debt. Both of his sons were surprised and asked where he got the money. He told them it was my older daughter’s money. His two sons were moved and wired him the balance without saying anything.

My daughter’s father-in-law was so happy and thanked me again. I said, “You should thank my Master! I would not have done this if I did not practice Falun Dafa.” He agreed and said only Falun Dafa could change a person’s heart.

“Only Dafa Can Change My Husband”

When I revisited my older daughter’s parents-in-law, a villager wanted to learn about Falun Dafa. He asked a lot of questions. We talked for four hours. I told him what I learned from Dafa and my experiences. He wanted to practice Falun Dafa, but his wife objected.

He asked me what he should do. I said, “I know the best way to break through the family barrier.” I asked him, “Have you ever cooked?” He said, “No.” “Have you ever collected firewood?” He said, “No.” I asked him again, “Have you ever cleaned your house?” He said, “No.” “Have you fed the chickens, ducks, and geese?” He said, “I haven’t fed them.” I said, “How about you help your wife do all these chores? If you think Falun Dafa is good, you must follow Falun Dafa’s principles and be a good person.” He started to take over the housework and help his wife.

Two days later, his wife said, “I've noticed you've changed.” He said, “I practice Dafa, and Master told me to be a good person. At home, I will be a good husband and a good dad from now on. I will not smoke, drink, or gamble anymore.” The wife said, “Are you serious?” He said, “Of course I mean it. Not only at home, but I will also live by Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance all the time and everywhere.” His wife was so happy. She told people that Dafa is good and said, “Only Dafa can change my husband.”

After the CCP began to persecute Falun Dafa, I talked to key people in our village about the persecution. The village head and his assistant accepted the facts and quit the CCP, but the accountant did not want to withdraw from the CCP. Later, the accountant was diagnosed with intestinal cancer. I went to his home and once again told him about Dafa. He finally understood and accepted what I said.

Miraculously, he recovered from the cancer, and his job has been stable for more than ten years, which was rare in our village’s history.

Most people in the village have now come to understand Dafa and quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. They say Falun Dafa is good and that only Falun Dafa can change people’s hearts.
