(Minghui.org) I went out of town at the end of August and returned at the beginning of 2022. The materials for making calendars I purchased before leaving were not used. I thought that the exquisite calendars published by Minghui.org might still be needed.

So I made some calendars and New Year pictures and put them together in a large transparent plastic bag for distribution. They were still in great demand. When I made some large calendars and handed them out, I got great feedback.

One day, I went to a workshop area to distribute the calendars. When I saw three people chatting, I went over and greeted one of them, “Hi, do you need a calendar? I have a calendar with information about Falun Dafa here. It is beautiful.”

“I already have this calendar at home. Thank you,” he said. “I know Falun Dafa is good. Do you have any booklets?” I gave him two Minghui periodicals.

“Actually, I didn’t know much about Falun Dafa before,” he said after taking the pamphlets. “My disease was resolved with practitioners’ help. I was hospitalized a while ago. Both the director and department head are members of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). They took the gifts I gave them, but they didn’t cure my illness.

“Later, a doctor who practiced Falun Dafa treated me. I asked my family to give him 500 yuan, but he refused to take it. I asked my family to give him 1,000 yuan. He accepted it so that I would have peace of mind while he treated me. He cured my illness. When I was discharged, he returned the 1,000 yuan to me. Through this I know that those who practice Falun Dafa are all good people. I would also like to learn more about Dafa.”

I asked him if he'd quit the CCP and its organizations. He said he did.

I kept walking and saw five elderly people chatting together. I walked over and asked, “Do you have calendars?” They were willing to listen when I talked to them about Falun Dafa. I gave each of them a Minghui journal and an amulet. They were very happy when they saw the beautiful amulet. One of them told the others, “Every morning when you open your eyes, recite “Falun Dafa is good.’”

Walking further, I saw two old men chatting and asked if they needed a calendar. One of them said, “If you have Falun Dafa things, I would like to get some. Your stuff is so good.” I handed him a paper-cut calendar. As soon as I handed it to him he immediately turned the pages and looked at it.

Another also asked for a copy. I gave him the last one. He immediately flipped through it and said, “It's so beautiful!”

Walking further, there was a food stall. I walked over and said, “I’ll give you an amulet to keep you safe.” Seeing how delicate the amulet was, the vendor happily took it and said, “Give one to everyone here.” I distributed the amulets to everyone around him, and I also gave them some informational materials. They were all happy to accept them.

When I gave a calendar to a cleaning woman at the gate of a workshop, she happily said, “I don’t have a calendar yet, thank you!” A man in his 40s on a bicycle saw that I was giving a calendar to the woman. He said, “I want a copy too. My back pain was gone after practicing meditation. I could not move or go to work due to severe lumbar disc herniation. Someone suggested I practice Falun Dafa. After I did the exercises, I’m completely back to normal. I love Falun Dafa stuff now.”

There is a place near our workshop where many people like to gather and chat. A police station is next to it. Over time, these people have gotten to know me. Once after I made some big calendars, I sent righteous thoughts before I began to distribute them. I went there with a large bag of calendars and said, “I’ve brought you some good things, the calendars that will keep you safe.”

One of the people was very unfriendly and said, “You still distribute these things!” I held out a calendar and said, “Look at how beautiful it is.” He took it and flipped through it. When the others saw it, they held their hands out for a calendar. I gave them different calendars. One of them said, “No matter what kind of calendar you get, you just need to know that ‘Falun Dafa is good.’”

One after another, people took the calendars until they were all gone. The man who was unfriendly to me smiled as I left.

The plastic-enclosed calendars and New Year pictures are more popular. Once when I went out to distribute them, a few people walked over to me and accepted them. Soon many people came and around 40 calendars were quickly distributed.

On the way home, I saw a woman holding the calendar I just handed out. She said, “This painting is so beautiful. I like it so much. Falun Dafa is good! You people are too kind. Some people said, ‘This is from Falun Dafa,’ and I said, ‘What’s wrong with Falun Dafa?’”

I said to her, “You are so righteous that you will be blessed.”

There are many such examples. I know people are awakening.

Background: What Is Falun Dafa and Why is the CCP persecuting it?

Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) was first introduced to the public by Mr. Li Hongzhi in Changchun, China, in 1992. The spiritual discipline is now practiced in over 100 countries and regions worldwide. Millions of people who have embraced the teachings, which are based on the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, and learned the five exercises have experienced improved health and well-being.

Jiang Zemin, former head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), perceived the spiritual discipline’s growing popularity as a threat to the CCP’s atheistic ideology and on July 20, 1999, issued an order to ban the practice.

Minghui.org has confirmed the deaths of thousands of practitioners as a result of the persecution over the past 22 years. The actual number is believed to be much higher. More have been imprisoned and tortured for their faith.

There is concrete evidence that the CCP sanctions the harvesting of organs from detained practitioners, who are murdered to supply the organ transplant industry.

Under Jiang’s personal direction, the CCP established the 610 Office, an extralegal security organization with the power to override the police and judicial systems and whose sole function is to carry out the persecution of Falun Dafa.
