(Minghui.org) Greetings, Master! Greetings, fellow practitioners!

At the end of 2013, I started using my mobile phone to clarify the truth. I had three phones. Two made automated calls with pre-recorded messages, and the other one was used to make direct calls to people. I usually go out to make the calls every day, rain or shine. With Master’s compassionate protection, I’ve made it to today. I’d like to tell you about my experiences.

Purchasing Phone Cards

In the beginning, most local practitioners participated in the project. We purchased prepaid SIM cards. It was very convenient and safe, and we didn’t need to show our IDs or have our photos taken to buy them. Things went very smoothly for a few years. I often went out with three other practitioners to make the calls.

When someone agreed to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), it encouraged us to keep up our efforts. One practitioner was very good at persuading people to quit the CCP. One day she helped 60 people quit. Sometimes we didn’t go home until sunset.

However, as more and more practitioners began making phone calls, the CCP tried to stop us. Anyone who purchased a new SIM card had to show their ID and have their photos taken, and we could only buy one card at a time. We were shocked by the sudden change. We looked within and realized that we didn’t cherish the cards since it was so easy to get them.

Unable to buy the SIM cards, most practitioners went to other projects. But the four of us did not want to give up and decided to continue. We could reach out to people across China without having to travel.

Master saw our earnest hearts and helped us. I went to the shop where I previously purchased cards. As I had been there many times, the owner already knew me. I told her that I wanted to buy cards, but I couldn’t show her my ID or have my photo taken. She asked another customer to help. She pointed at me and said, “She’s a good person. But she doesn’t have her ID. Can we use your ID to buy two cards for her?” He agreed. I was grateful to Master for helping me.

Later another practitioner also went to the shop and she asked the owner if she knew better ways to buy the cards without having to show our IDs. It happened that the owner was going to the city to purchase some goods. She checked with a dealer she knew, and he could provide the cards without seeing our IDs. We could buy as many as we wanted, and we were able to add money to them without revealing our identities.

It was great news. Many practitioners went to the dealer to buy cards and continued making phone calls. We knew Master was looking after us.

Persevering In Making Calls

One day, the coordinator told us that the CCP was about to launch another persecution campaign and asked us to stop making the calls for a while. The four of us discussed this and said, “Our truth-clarification calls can save people. This is what Master wants. Nothing can prevent us from doing it.” We strengthened our righteous thoughts and continued.

Master said,

“The old forces don’t dare to oppose our clarifying the truth or saving sentient beings. What’s key is to not let them take advantage of the gaps in your state of mind when you do things.” (“Fa Teaching Given at the 2002 Conference inBoston, U.S.A.,” Collected Teachings Given Around the World Volume II)

At the beginning of 2020, the COVID pandemic broke out and most cities were under strict lockdown, including ours. A fellow practitioner lives in my neighborhood so it’s very convenient for us to meet. We felt we should not be stopped by the lockdown. With our strong righteous thoughts and Master’s protection, we managed to go out every day and continue calling people.

Then in April 2021, the CCP launched the “Zero-out” harassment campaign, trying to force every practitioner on its “blacklist” to renounce Falun Dafa. One night around 6 p.m., someone knocked on our door, and said, “I’m from the police station and I need to talk to you.”

Before they came, they harassed another practitioner, videotaped her, and tried to threaten her into writing a statement to renounce Falun Dafa. I heard what happened, so I stopped my husband from opening the door when the police came. I told them I wouldn’t talk to them. If I let them in, I was allowing them to commit a crime against me. They left.

When I was about to go out to make the phone calls the next day, my husband went outside first and confirmed that no police were staked outside. I continued my daily routine of truth-clarification.

Effective Truth-clarification Through Story-telling

When I made the call, I start by explaining the basic facts about Falun Dafa and why people need to withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. Depending on the situation, I tell different stories to help people understand the facts.

During the pandemic, the Minghui website published many articles describing how people recovered from COVID or did not get infected at all by reciting the auspicious phrases: “Falun Dafa is good, and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I often talked about these stories during the calls and the results were very good.

Sometimes I told stories of my own family members. My sister-in-law’s entire family tested positive for the virus, but she was fine as she had been reciting the phrases. Even though she’s in her 70s, she’s very healthy and does most of the household chores.

Another story was about my sister, who lived in a small village near the mountain. One year, a mudslide came. The moment her home was about to be engulfed, she shouted, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance is good!” As she kept shouting, the mudslide, as if it had eyes, turned in front of her house and flowed away.

Sometimes I also tell stories about myself. My health used to be very poor. I tried various treatments and spent a fortune, but nothing helped. Shortly after I began practicing Falun Dafa, I recovered and I’ve enjoyed good health ever since.

Overcoming My Fear

When I first started to make the calls, I was constantly worried about being monitored or reported. When people hung up on me and I called back a second time, if that person’s line was busy, my fear would surface and I would worry whether he was making the phone call to report me. I usually replaced the SIM card.

Sometimes the person who answered the call would threaten me, saying things like, “Do you know who I am? How dare you tell me that?!” Some said, “I’m going to report you.” Others said, “This cell phone number is yours, right? I’ve memorized this number, just wait.”

Agonized by my fear, I tried to send forth righteous thoughts to clear away the interfering factors, but I found it very hard to completely overcome my fear.

Through Fa study, I understood that the root of fear is selfishness. My fear of being reported was because I didn’t want to be harmed. I was only thinking about myself and did not consider the safety of sentient beings.

The fear is not my true thought. I need to negate it. If people report me, they are committing a crime against Dafa. Instead of worrying about my own safety, I should be concerned whether they are putting themselves in a dangerous situation. My fear might exactly be the excuse used by the old forces to destroy sentient beings.

Master said,

“One righteous mind can subdue one hundred evils. If you do not pursue anything, no one will dare to bother you.” (Lecture Five, Zhuan Falun)

Master’s Fa strengthened my righteous thoughts. I knew in my heart that if I did not go along with the fear, the evil would not dare to persecute me. After that, whenever I had those thoughts, I immediately negated them, “This thought is harmful to sentient beings; I don’t want it.” My fear would leave.

When I make phone calls now, I treat those on the other end as my own family members, and I sincerely tell them the way to stay safe, and that if they understand the facts, they’ll have a bright future.

As the Fa-rectification keeps pressing forward, I will continue making phone calls, cultivate myself well and save more sentient beings.
