Minghui – Shandong Province, China
One of my former high school classmates is a wealthy, retired bank manager. The first time I told him about Falun Dafa and Tuidang, I also asked him to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). He refused to believe me, however, and would not accept any Dafa-related materials that I offered him.
The second time I saw him was at a friend’s wedding. I didn’t get a chance to talk to him because we were a few tables apart. When he sensed that I wanted to talk to him, he gestured with his hand not to come over.
The third time I saw him, he was walking down the street. I called out to him, “I don’t want anything from you. I just want you to know the truth so that you’ll be able to avoid any future calamities.”
He looked at me, and said, “I’ve worked hard to be a part of the CCP, so save your breath, because I wouldn’t quit the CCP even if what you told me was true. And I wouldn’t regret it, either!”
I replied, “It’s a tragedy when a being is unable to distinguish good from evil. To have the opportunity to hear the truth would not be something to regret!”
I handed him two Dafa fliers and told him to read them with an open mind. “Don’t unknowingly sacrifice your life for the Party.”
He said that he would read them.
The next time I saw him was at a party hosted by my husband’s classmate. My husband had to work that night, so I went in his place. When I looked up from my table, I noticed that my former classmate was sitting across from me.
I helped the two people on either side of me quit the Party. When the event ended, my classmate walked towards me with a big smile on his face and shook my hand.
I said to him very seriously, “Every time I think of you not quitting the CCP I feel very worried for you. I feel like I haven’t explained the facts well enough or fulfilled my responsibility to you.”
He cheerfully replied, “Look, I don’t want you to worry about me. Please help me quit. I will use my real name.”
It was sunny outside when I left the event, and the air was very fresh.
