(Minghui.org) My youngest sister and her husband are a happy couple with integrity. Though they do not practice Falun Dafa, they identify with its principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance and support me in practicing it. For many years in the ongoing persecution under the communist regime, they have protected me and created opportunities for me to clarify the facts about Falun Dafa to their friends.
Bravely Protecting the Book
My brother-in-law, a sales manager, was going bring me a copy of Zhuan Falun from our previous home in the countryside when security measures at the train station suddenly tightened up due to the Chinese Communist Party’s 16th Congress.
Worried about his safety, I asked him not to bring the book this time. But he insisted and even brought along some recent lectures.
He put the book and the lectures in the pocket of his cardigan, then he put on his down jacket and got on the train. Not long after he sat down, the train security began to check all the passengers, making everyone take off their coats. When he took off the down jacket, the police saw the bag he’d put the book in and asked him to open it. He calmly replied, “There’s money inside. Do you still need to check it?” The police said, “Oh, no, never mind.”
When he got home and told me what had happened, I was really impressed with the strong righteous thought he had! With Master’s protection, my brother-in-law brought me more Dafa books.
Helping a Fellow Practitioner
Around 10:30 one night back in 2002, someone knocked on my door. I opened up and my brother-in-law came in with a young police officer.
My brother-in-law introduced the man to me, saying, “This is one of my customers near our hometown. We ate together today for the first time and I noticed that he spoke a little different from my other customers and he wouldn’t drink, either. These days, hardly anyone does business without drinking.
“Then he told me that he started practicing Falun Dafa in 1995 when he was in college and stopped drinking then. Although he doesn’t practice Dafa anymore after the persecution started and lost contact with fellow practitioners, he said he still tries to do what Master taught.
“Well, in that case”, I said, “let’s not drink.” After dinner, I offered to take him to see someone special and told him, ‘You can call her Little Sister. Like you, she is also a practitioner of Falun Dafa.’”
The policeman was very surprised and happy. Finally, he got to meet a fellow practitioner. We introduced ourselves. When he left, I gave him Master’s new articles, the only set I had at that time.
He later returned to his hometown and got in touch with local practitioners. Over the years, although he and my brother-in-law didn’t do business together anymore, they still contacted each other regularly.
In my brother-in-law’s words, they have “a very special bond.” He said, “Sometimes when he ran into difficulties and was depressed, he would call me. I would give him some advice, and he would say, ‘I understand now. What you said was so right. With simple words, you opened my heart.’ He would thank me again and again.”
I said to my brother-in-law, “Although you do not cultivate, you are already living in the Dao.”
Creating Opportunities for Me to Clarify the Facts
When I moved to the same city where my sister and brother-in-law live, they introduced to me a lot of their friends from all walks of life and created opportunities for me to clarify the facts about Falun Dafa.
Once, several of my brother-in-law’s colleagues and friends came to visit. He arranged for them to dine together at their house. After they arrived, my brother-in-law rang me and asked me to join them. When I said I’d pass, he said, “Our big dinner table has people all around it.” I understood immediately and went over.
As soon as I got there, my brother-in-law introduced me and everyone started to greet me. Then he said, “My sister is doing really well. She used to be quite sick, but after practicing Falun Dafa, her health improved greatly and now she no longer needs to take any medicine.” This gave me the chance to talk about Dafa and answer their questions. In the end, they all understood the facts and quit the Chinese Communist Party.
Another time, my sister invited her good friend’s family to come over for dinner and asked me to join them. I went and clarified the facts, and the whole family quit the CCP.
They have provided many opportunities like this for me to clarify facts in a relaxed and happy setting.
Unconditional Support, Always
I used to print Falun Dafa informational materials at home and gave them to local practitioners and practitioners in another city. At one point, a local practitioner had an accident that had a great impact on the surrounding area. For safety reasons, I decided to store the materials at my sister’s bakery and practitioners could go there to pick up the materials.
When I ran out of room at home to store the supplies to make materials, I moved them to a storage room in my sister’s house.
For many years, they have given unconditional help to Dafa disciples whenever we needed, but they’ve never complained about the extra work or safety concerns.
In recent years, my sister and her husband moved to another city because of work. I sincerely hope that one day they can also practice Dafa and cherish the precious once-a-thousand-years opportunity to cultivate in an upright school.
