(Minghui.org) My uncle, 73, has always supported my practice of Falun Dafa even though he doesn’t practice himself. After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began to persecute Dafa practitioners in July 1999, he protected Dafa books and videos for me and other practitioners during the worst days of the persecution.

My uncle said that he did not think much about what he did. “Everyone should help those in need,” he explained. Because of his kindness and support of Dafa, he received blessings from Dafa, and enjoyed good health over the years.

As the Chinese Communist Party suddenly gave up on the strict zero-COVID policy last December, positive cases exploded across China, and our local area was no exception. My uncle suddenly felt short of breath in early 2023, but he did not go to the hospital in the beginning, worrying that he would catch the virus from the many COVID patients there.

While resting at home, my uncle recited the two phrases that I had told him before, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” every day. His symptoms improved at first. But a few days later, he began to struggle with breathing again. He felt so weak that even moving one step forward was strenuous. I suggested that he ask Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, to save him.

He prayed to Master Li for two days, “Please save me, Dafa's Master! After I recover, I will definitely protect Dafa even more and be a better person.” He felt better with breathing and was able to walk a short distance.

A few days later (about one week after he became sick), he went to have an examination at the hospital. The CT scan showed that he caught the virus and had severe pneumonia, but that he was already recovering. He was hospitalized and put on IV fluids.

On the 7th day, another CT scan and blood work both showed that his lungs were healed. His doctor found it incredible! He, however, still had some breathing trouble. The doctor warned him that it may never fully heal and that it may become worse when the weather is bad. But since it was not a severe issue, he was discharged from the hospital that day.

He asked me if this tribulation was meant to eliminate his karma. I replied after pondering, “There are probably other reasons that you got infected. It's true that you protected Dafa books in the past, but being a member of the local government run orchestra, you had played and sung songs praising the CCP, which meant that you sided with it. I think this explains why you caught the CCP Virus. Yet because of your protection of Dafa books, you’ve been given a second chance.” He agreed with me. The next day, he happily told me that their orchestra was going to disband.

After he returned home, my uncle continued reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” His breathing has become much better, his complexion improved, and he could lift heavy objects again. When I reminded him to keep his promise to Master, he replied, “I won’t forget, and I mean what I say!”

My uncle’s speedy recovery from COVID demonstrates that Dafa is miraculous! When you are in distress or going through difficulties, sincerely reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” will bring you blessings. Repeating the two auspicious phrases often can also protect your life in face of catastrophes.
