(Minghui.org) My mother, my sister, and I are all Falun Dafa practitioners. Our bodies and minds have been purified since taking up this ancient spiritual discipline. Despite the now 23 years of persecution under the Chinese communist regime, we continue to practice it. Our family members all support us, and they have been blessed for their kindness.
My Illiterate Mother Can Read Zhuan Falun
My mother is very kind. She came from a poor family and had many siblings, so she never went to school. She began to practice Dafa in February 1998. When she first started going to the Fa-study group, she could only listen to other practitioners read the book. Gradually, my mother learned how to read herself. As she continued to study the Fa, she recognized more and more characters.
After studying with them for three months, my mother was miraculously able to read all of Zhuan Falun. Since then, she has never stopped studying the book and doing the exercises. Now, my 92-year-old mother is very healthy and never troubles her children.
My Sister Blessed after Obtaining the Fa
My younger sister often got sick prior to taking up Dafa. She got divorced when her child was very young and had a low-paying job, so life was hard. After she started practicing, she became healthier and happier.
My niece never makes trouble and is a great student. She supports her mother’s practice and believes in Dafa. She found a good job after graduating from college. My sister makes Dafa informational materials and my niece contributes to that effort. Despite today’s economic downturn due to the pandemic, she’d even gotten raises.
Supportive Eldest Brother and His Wife Blessed
My eldest brother is kind and dedicated to his work. In the early days when the persecution of Dafa started in July 1999, my sister and I went to Beijing to appeal for Dafa. We were arrested and held in a detention center. At that time, my mother lived with my brother and his wife, who both supported us. After my younger sister was released, my brother took her in for half a month. He and his wife have both been blessed.
In the past, he was often sick but now he is very healthy. After he retired in his 70s, another company hired him for his technological skills. He is an expert in his field.
My sister-in-law never stops my mother from going out to distribute truth-clarifying materials. One day, the neighbor brought the materials he found at his door to my sister-in-law. She asked him, “Why are you giving them to me? Did you see who left them?” The neighbor was speechless.
Aside from protecting my mother, my sister-in-law also supports my mother’s cultivation. When she had a stroke, she was in the hospital for more than three weeks but has recovered very well. Household chores are very easy for her even though she is already in her 70s.
Master Li Saved My Second Brother Who Protected Dafa Books
My second brother believes in Dafa. After my sister and I went to Beijing to appeal for Dafa and were detained in 1999, my employer detained me for over three weeks. My sister-in-law kept me company. At that time, my second brother was working out of town. Whenever he returned home, he always came to visit me and comfort me. He also helped us keep our Dafa books and computers safe.
Once at a worksite, a heavy object fell from a crane and hit him on the head. He was rushed to the hospital unconscious. After emergency care, he was out of danger.
My Younger Brother and His Wife Protected by Master
My younger brother is in middle management. His wife holds an important position in a bank. When my younger sister and I were arrested in 1999, my niece was left on her own. My younger brother and his wife took care of her until my sister returned home. They also often went to visit our mother. Once they met a Dafa practitioner’s family member at mother’s. They expressed their sympathy and ate with them. They were not afraid of being implicated and chose to help us. Their good deeds were rewarded.
My younger brother was in a terrible car accident and fell into a coma at the end of 2019. He was in the intensive care unit for over 20 days and was discharged about six weeks later. Shortly after returning home, he went to visit mother and told her that the Master of Falun Dafa had saved him.
A few years ago, my sister-in-law developed breast hyperplasia. Medicines and injections did not work, but she recovered later on her own.
My Daughter Blessed for Supporting Dafa
My daughter has been supportive of my practice, and she believes that Falun Dafa is good. When she first started working, she took a few month's worth of her salary to make Dafa informational materials. She later donated more than 8,000 yuan to that effort.
Although she has not officially become a practitioner, she has been respectful of Dafa and Master.
Once my daughter was driving home on the highway when her vision suddenly became blurry. She couldn’t see the road clearly or stop the car. At that moment, a voice sounded in her ear: “Why don’t you recite, ‘Falun Dafa is good?’” She remembered Master Li (Dafa’s founder) and began to repeat, “Falun Dafa is good.” She could see the road in an instant and avoided an accident.
I would like to thank Master on behalf of my entire family!
