A long trip can be a great opportunity to talk to people about Falun Dafa.
Business Owner Decides Not to Upgrade Her Seat
I once took a ten-hour-long train trip, and sat in the middle seat, with a middle-aged lady sitting on my left, and a young fellow on my right. A mother and daughter and another middle-aged lady were sitting across from me. The lady across from me was wearing a leather coat, and she looked fairly wealthy.
The train departed at around 8:00 p.m. I chatted with everyone and learned that they were all going to the final stop. The wealthy-looking lady was fairly talkative. She said that she ran a gold mine and was on a business trip to the provincial capital. Although she didn’t get a berth ticket she was considering upgrading her ticket later.
I realized that I should seize the time to clarify the facts to her. We chatted about the gold mine she ran, and I learned that she truly believed in Buddhas and gods. I then told her some stories about how good and evil are repaid in kind. I also mentioned cultivation.
The lady to my left joined our conversation. She turned out to be a lay Buddhist, and so were the mother and daughter. I told them stories from ancient times to the present, and it was therefore easy to tell them about Falun Dafa and why the persecution is wrong. They accepted everything I said. I helped them withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.
A few hours passed as we talked. The gold mine owner suddenly realized that she had forgotten to upgrade her seat. When she checked the time, it was after 11:00 p.m. Urged by the middle-aged lady on my left, she decided to stay with us.
We kept talking, and by 3:00 a.m. we had talked for about six hours. The middle-aged lady on my left was very excited and said she respected Dafa. She gave me her phone number and address, and hoped that we could keep in touch.
When we arrived at the final stop, we said goodbye to each other. The young man sitting on my right had been quietly listening to us, but he hadn’t said anything. When we got off the train, I stayed near him. As soon as I mentioned withdrawing from the CCP and its affiliated organizations, he immediately agreed.
