(Minghui.org) I’ve noticed that when people learn about Falun Gong and the persecution, it reawakens their conscience. Instead of repeating the hate propaganda from the Chinese Communist Party, they begin to view Falun Gong in a positive light and eagerly share their new awareness.
Below are several examples of how people’s lives were changed after what they did.
From Watchdog to Sympathizer
After the persecution began, I noticed that, on certain holidays and anniversaries, people would follow me whenever I went out. They were ordered to monitor me and report on whether I talked to people about Falun Gong or gave out any flyers.
Over the last 16 years, many have come and gone. Most of them stopped when they learned the truth.
One day, a middle-aged woman was following me around. I was not affected in the least and continued to do what I usually did, talking to people about Falun Gong as I walked.
After a while, she realized that Falun Gong practitioners are kind, compassionate, and considerate–not at all what the communist government portrayed on TV. We became friends, and she wanted to help me tell people about Falun Gong.
We were always running into her many acquaintances and friends. They ask, “Who is this lady?” She replies, “She’s my friend who practices Falun Gong.” Then I tell them about Falun Gong and how the “self-immolation” at Tiananmen Square was staged as a propaganda stunt.
She invited me to her home during holidays and gatherings. Her relatives and friends all withdrew from the Party after they learned the truth.
She had a pretty challenging life: her son is mentally handicapped, and her husband was an alcoholic who did nothing to help her and just drank all day long. To take care of both of them, she did odd jobs to make ends meet.
But things gradually changed for her: her son now receives disability checks, and her husband stopped drinking and helps her with the household chores. They sold their home at a good price, purchased a larger one, and still have a lump sum left after renovating their new home.
She told a residential committee member, “Falun Gong is good. No matter how much you give me, I will not do what you ask. I will practice Falun Gong, too.”
My relative has a friend who is a veteran. He lost sight in one eye during the war.
When I told him about the persecution of Falun Gong, he listened attentively and asked me for brochures and a DVD, and even told me his home address.
Whenever he saw me, he would ask about the current Minghui Weekly publication, other informational materials, and Shen Yun DVDs. He passed all that information on to his friends after he finished with them. He said that he had over a hundred reliable friends.
He also began to persuade others to withdraw from the Communist Party and its youth organizations. One time, he gave me a list of 30 people who wanted to quit the Party, and all of them used their real names even though they knew they could use an alias. He gave me more name lists later on. I was so delighted for him and said he would be blessed for what he had done.
He has now regained vision in his injured eye! He can event read the small print on the Shen Yun DVD cover. He has become much healthier and his wife’s insomnia went away. His grandson received top marks in school. Whenever he sees me now, he says, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
Doorman Attributes His Happiness to Falun Gong
The doorman in our subdivision, who is from out of town, goes home to help at harvest time. After I gave him a Shen Yun DVD, he showed it to others in his village.
From that point on, whenever he went home, he would bring with him Shen Yun DVDs, the Nine Commentaries, copies of Minghui Weekly, and other Falun Gong materials. He brought back lists of people who wanted to quit the Communist Party, and they all used their real names.
I told him that the people in his village were fortunate to be able to see Shen Yun, and that he would be blessed for what he did. He agreed.
His son’s girlfriend broke up with him because she was upset with his financial status. Later on, he told me that his son had found someone else and was getting married; the wife-to-be was a very intelligent girl who had found a job in Shanghai.
On their wedding day, they distributed many Shen Yun DVDs to the relatives and guests. His son also found a good job, and their child was born last year.
He is always happy to see me and tells me that he attributes his happiness to the Master of Falun Dafa, for whom he is deeply grateful.
