(Minghui.org) The number of positive COVID-19 cases increased dramatically in China late last year, when the communist regime suddenly opened up the country, completely reversing the extreme lockdown previously in place. Many patients could hardly get medicine from hospitals or pharmacies. A lot of lives were taken by the coronavirus, as well as symptoms that lasted long after the illness passed.

Fortunately, in the past few years, I have been explaining to my friends and relatives how one could remain safe by preserving traditional values such as the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance of Falun Dafa. Many of them agreed and quit the CCP organizations, which brought them blessings. Very few of them were infected and some only had minor symptoms. Here are a few examples.

From the Most Vulnerable to the Safest

Hong Yan is an old friend of mine. Our life experiences are similar and we were born in the same year. After getting married and having children, both of us were busy and could hardly find time to meet. When we were in our 40s, both of us had numerous illnesses. Hospital treatment did not help, and then someone introduced me to Falun Dafa. Within a few months, I regained my health and the people around me were impressed with the positive changes they witnessed.

Hong also had various illnesses for years. She tried numerous qigong systems, but they did not improve her condition. Instead, doctors said her ailments were incurable, and neither the hospital nor folk remedies could help. Hong had to wear a sweater even in the summer and stay away from air conditioning. She had to avoid various foods and rarely left her home. Upon hearing about her situation, I gave Hong a copy of the audio lectures from Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa.

When I went to visit Hong last year, she was still sick and remarked, “Over 20 years have passed, and you still have great health and a sharp mind. I can tell Falun Dafa is very good.” But due to years of brainwashing by the CCP, she did not want to quit the Party. After watching programs on NTD Television Hong realized the evil nature of Karl Marx, and was clear on what the CCP is and decided to renounce membership in its organizations. I often visited Hong that summer so that we could read Dafa teachings together.

After Hong began to practice Dafa, Master Li cleansed her body. Not only did her illnesses disappear, but her pale skin also returned to a normal color. In summer, she was able to go out in a T-shirt. Her changes were so dramatic that her neighbors could hardly recognize her. People who saw Hong could not imagine she had led a miserable life in the past.

Hong was in the army in the past. She told me that over 20 of her military friends died in the pandemic. Because of her health, everyone thought that she would be most vulnerable to contracting the pandemic. They were surprised to find out she was never infected.

My Uncle

Hui is my uncle and a stubborn person. On New Year’s and other major holidays, I often went to visit him. But whenever I arrived, he would complain about why I was against the CCP when the Party was paying my salary. I explained that our income comes from our hard work, not from the CCP. But he did not listen.

One day last fall, I visited him again. Seeing his place messy, I said, “Uncle, how about we stop arguing today so that I can clean your place?” I cleaned everywhere, from the floor to cabinet tops, from kitchen to bathroom. I worked from morning till afternoon, when it was time for me to leave. My uncle was moved and he was in tears. “Sorry I was wrong,” he said. “You are a good person. Nobody has cleaned my place like this in the past.”

After some time, I visited him again. Upon seeing me, my uncle smiled and called out, “Falun Dafa is great!” Since he asked for a copy of Zhuan Falun (the main teachings of Falun Dafa), I brought a copy to him days later. He read it twice and identified with the principles talked about in the book. He said he also saw my mother in a dream. “In the dream, your mother looked at me with a smile. I told her, ‘I am no longer against Falun Dafa. I now support my niece in practicing Falun Dafa.”

I am very happy for the changes in my uncle. He wasn’t infected in the pandemic either.

A Lay Buddhist

Min is my neighbor and she is over 80 years old. As a lay Buddhist, she went to temples for many years. One day last summer, I visited Min and explained to her what Falun Dafa is. I also played some Falun Dafa videos for Min and she learned how the CCP defamed the practice. She decided to renounce membership in the CCP organizations, and we watched Master Li’s lecture videos three times.

During those days, Min had little red bumps all over. I knew Master Li was cleansing her body since Min had practiced some systems with entity attachment in the past. She also realized this and discarded items related to those systems. She has been healthy since then, including during the pandemic.

Retired Government Officer

Rong, my sister-in-law, recently retired from a government agency. She knows that Falun Dafa practitioners are good people and always likes to chat with me.

Once when we met, I told Rong that perhaps millions of Chinese people might have died in China during the pandemic. She nodded and said that many people had family members who had passed away. She explained, “In my residential complex, we all became so stressed and overwhelmed that it wasn’t possible to attend the funerals of other families because there were so many. Many people I know have lost their lives, including my college classmates, coworkers, and their family members.”

Rong saw that the COVID-19 virus targets those who are close to the CCP and remarked that, “The pandemic has taken the lives of many CCP members.”
