(Minghui.org) I am a Falun Dafa practitioner in my 70s. My life completely changed after I began to practice Falun Dafa. I was raised by my grandmother, but she passed away when I was a few years old. My parents were divorced then and I lived with my father. Later, he married again. I have two half-sisters and one half-brother after that. I only went to first grade because my father and stepmother wanted me to take care of my younger siblings. I had to do all sorts of household chores and my health was poor as I grew up.
Discovered Falun Dafa Through My Family
I went to visit my mother one day in 1998. She and my sister were reading a book. They told me that they now practice Falun Dafa and had since regained health. I knew they were both very sick and relied on others for care in the past. Looking at their healthy and happy faces, I also wanted to practice Falun Dafa.
My sister took me to a fellow practitioner’s home and had me watch Master’s Fa teaching lectures. After the third lecture, I regained my menstrual period, which had stopped a few years prior! What Master said in his lectures was all true! I asked my sister for the main book on Falun Dafa. I also wanted to read.
I diligently read the Fa teachings when I returned home. Whenever I came across a character that I did not know, I asked others. One day, when I was reading, I noticed the characters in the book radiating with golden light! Wow, it is a celestial book! I made up my mind to study, exercise daily, and cherish this precious opportunity.
Shortly after I began my practice, my hair regrew and my rheumatoid arthritis disappeared. I no longer had hand pain and I was able to work again, including heavy labor in the field. I could hardly contain my happiness. It was such a wonderful thing to be illness free.
Promoting Falun Dafa to My Fellow Villagers
I thought how wonderful it would be if our villagers could also learn Falun Dafa. I went back to my sister and told her my wish. One weekend, many fellow practitioners came to our village. Dozens of villagers came to watch Master’s Fa lecture. Several fellow practitioners stayed for a few days to teach villagers exercises and study the Fa with them.
An elderly farmer, after watching the Fa lectures, told others: “Falun Dafa is wonderful. Falun Dafa cured my eye disease. I was nearly blind but I can thread the yarn into the needles now! Come to learn!”
Many other wondrous things happened to villagers. A fellow practitioner who stayed at my home said: “The energy field is so good and strong here.”
Persevere in the Practice
After the Chinese Communist Party started to persecute Falun Gong in July 1999, some villagers were afraid and stopped practicing. I told myself, “No matter what, I will persevere in my practice.”
In 2003, there was a drought and almost every well in the village dried up. My well, however, had a constant flow of water and we had a good yield of crops that year.
When a materials production center was ruined, fellow practitioners asked me whether they could produce the materials at my home. Without any hesitation, I said yes. My husband supported us as well. With Master’s protection, it has been running smoothly ever since.
