(Minghui.org) Having practiced Falun Dafa for 25 years, I have benefitted from it tremendously myself. Now 60, I’m still full of energy and working at a canteen, when most people my age have retired. Many of my co-workers were impressed by the kindness and integrity of a Falun Dafa practitioner and fully support me in practicing my faith. 

I’d like to share a few stories below.

In-laws Receive Blessings

A few years ago, the father of my daughter-in-law suffered lumbar vascular stenosis. After he had an operation, he couldn’t engage in labor-intensive work or carry heavy objects. He had to be extra careful when turning around. 

When my son and his daughter were dating, he suffered a persistent fever. The doctor said he over-stretched himself and thus had infection in his back. He had another operation, in which the doctor removed the infected tissue from his lower spine and implanted a steel plate for support. Two months later, however, the steel plate caused another infection and the doctor had to surgically remove it. The three operations in two years took a toll on his health and he became too weak to do anything.

After my daughter-in-law gave birth to her daughter in 2019, many people from her family came to visit her. So I took the opportunity to tell them the facts about the persecution and the goodness of Falun Dafa. Her parents, aunt, uncle, friends, the matron tending her, and even the courier, all understood the truth and quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.

When I told my daughter-in-law’s parents about the persecution of Falun Dafa, they listened very attentively. I told them about the staged Tiananmen Square self immolation hoax, and the CCP's history of killing Chinese people. They truly believed what I said and withdrew from the CCP's affiliated organizations with their real names.

I also gave them a flash drive with more information about Dafa and told them to recite the auspicious phrases “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

Both of them, especially my daughter-in-law's father, saw their health improve quickly. He can now cook, do housework, and even carry his granddaughter up and down the stairs. When I visited them last time, he was playing with his granddaughter. His sallow complexion has turned rosy. He told me that he had been reciting the phrases every day and his back pain was gone. 

Shopping for Vegetables for Factory Canteen

A fellow practitioner got me the job working at the factory canteen. I happily took this job.

The factory owner assigned me the job of helping purchase food for the canteen, as the current food buyer (I'll call her May) was taking one month off to take care of her daughter-in-law who had just given birth. May took me to the market to get familiar with the vendors.

After going there a few times, I found that a few things were not quite right. The quality of the vegetables delivered to the factory was poor, but the prices sometimes were much higher than market retail prices. The vendors often eyeballed the vegetables, without accurately measuring the weight. The vegetable baskets contained quite a lot of dirt sometimes, which was also counted as part of the weight in price calculation.

I tried to return the basket to a vegetable vendor once. But the vendor said it had already been paid for by the factory. He said they have been doing the same thing since the factory was established three years ago. He said that such a big factory may not care about such a petty amount of money. But I made it clear that this had to stop after I took over, or I would start to look for a new supplier. I told him that the owner built the factory from scratch and went through hardships to grow it. I was paid to do the job so it was only fair for me to be ethical and do my job well.

I also asked the factory owner to buy a scale for the canteen so I could weigh the delivered items. He agreed and said, “You are so serious.” I replied, “Doing it this way is good for both you and the factory, and it's also fair.” He smiled.

Two days later, when that vendor came to deliver vegetables, he brought me some as well as gifts. Although I did not need them, I still accepted them out of respect. But I didn’t take it for free – I weighed them and paid him accordingly. 

Later, other suppliers also tried to give me meat, oil or other things as gifts. I always refused to accept them. When I could not return them, I paid for them out of my own pocket. Some people don't understand why I was not interested in personal gain, but they said to me, “Making such an honest and trustworthy friend like you in the current society has brightened up my life.”

One morning, a large load of food came in. When it was time for me to pay the delivery person, I found that his calculation was 97 yuan and 50 cents less than mine. I said to him, “Your calculation is off.” But he said, “I've been delivering food for so many years. I haven't miscalculated once. I'm right.”

I did the math again and got the same result. I asked someone else to do calculation too, still the same result as mine. May knew that I had no experience working in the kitchen and sometimes looked down on me. She laughed at me and said to the delivery person, “She has never counted so much money.” I told myself that no matter how she treated me, I had to treat her with compassion and hold myself to the standard of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.

Later, the delivery person realized his mistake and said to me, “I was an accountant, but I really miscalculated today. If you hadn't been so conscientious in your work, I would have been underpaid without knowing it.” I said to him, “If I do overcharge you, I will pay you back.”

May later said to me, “Although we’ve only worked together for a short time, I can tell that you are a person with a good heart and good character. The factory is lucky to have you to buy their food.”

I explained to them the teaching of Falun Dafa’s founder, Master Li Hongzhi, on the topic “no loss, no gain.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun) I also told them about the persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners and the evilness of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The delivery man said that he noticed I wasn’t taking advantage of my job. He agreed to quit the Communist Youth League and the Young Pioneers, both affiliates of the CCP. May had never joined any of the CCP organizations. Both of them said, “Falun Dafa practitioners are the best people in the world.”

Since then, May stopped accepting free vegetables and fruits.

After I took over the job, I always tried my best to find good deals for the canteen’s food supply and bring different varieties of vegetables and food to the table. I saved the factory about three thousand yuan on food purchases every month and the boss was very satisfied.

I talked to all the suppliers and let them know the truth about Dafa and the CCP. Many of them quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. 

Paying for Spoiled Tofu

Seventy pounds of tofu were delivered on the morning of a very hot day last summer. After the tofu dish was cooked at around 4:00 p.m. for dinner, we found out that the tofu was bad. More than two hundred and sixty people were waiting for dinner. The two canteen servers said the tofu was good when it came in the morning, and it turned bad because the cook did not put them into the refrigerator on such a hot day. The two servers and the cook started to quarrel about who was at fault.

As a Dafa practitioner, I thought that it might be a test to see whether I could let go of my attachment to money. I asked them to stop arguing and said I would pay for the tofu. One server said this matter had nothing to do with me as it happened after they received the tofu from me. 

I said that it was my fault that I didn't remind them to store the tofu properly. I insisted on paying for the tofu even though they still wanted the cook to pay for it. I put a stop to their arguments and started to wash the cabbage quickly to make up the dish for the dinner.

About 90% of Factory Workers Quit the CCP and Its Affiliated Organizations

I worked diligently every day. After I finished my own work, cutting vegetables and buying the ingredients, I filled in for the canteen workers who had to take time off sometimes. I also took the initiative to get up early every morning to cook a kind of porridge suited for the majority of the workers who were from the northeastern region. The workers were very happy.

Many workers often said to me, “You're almost sixty years old and you're still in such good health.” I always told them that I am in good health and have not taken a single pill for over twenty years since I practice Falun Dafa. I told them about the Tiananmen Square self immolation hoax and Falun Dafa’s being practiced in more than 100 countries around the world. I continued to expose the evil history of the CCP to them. After they understood the truth, they withdrew from the CCP and its affiliated organizations with their real names.

I took every opportunity to tell them the truth. Ninety percent of the two hundred and eighty workers in the factory quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. Some of them left the factory afterward and new employees came to learn the truth. 

Now, five people have started to learn Dafa. They also help clarify the facts to their relatives and friends, so that more people can benefit from Dafa.

My Son's Pneumonia Cured in Half an Hour of Listening to Master's Lecture

One day in October 2019, my son called me and said he had been in the hospital for more than ten days with pneumonia, but his fever didn't go down. I told him to get discharged from the hospital and come to my home.

He came to my place two days later. He had lost a lot of weight and still had a fever and a dry cough, with no energy at all. I asked him to recite “Falun Dafa is good" and "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” seriously. He started to do it immediately.

As he had to lie down, I played the audio recording of Master's lecture for him. He soon fell asleep. When he woke up half an hour later, he felt much better. His fever had subsided and he didn’t have dry cough anymore. He was excited, “Mom, I'm better!” He knew that Master had protected him.

More than ten of his coworkers were having the same symptoms as he. I told him to introduce Falun Dafa to them. He agreed and said he would.
