A Sidney correspondant | Minghui
Ms. Lum Adeline, who worked as an actuarial accountant in Malaysia, moved to Australia with her husband after they married. She was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and had surgery to remove half of her thyroid. Since then, she often felt unwell. Her husband took her to see either Chinese or Western medicine doctors every week.
She began to practice Falun Dafa in September 2004, after her older sister, who lives in Malaysia, suggested that she try it. Adeline said, “I was overjoyed after reading Zhuan Falun. I said I wanted to practice, and we found the practice site at the famous tourist spot Darling Harbor in central Sydney. I felt wonderful the first time I did the exercises.”
Although my husband is not a practitioner, he is very supportive of me going out to tell the truth about Falun Dafa.He is always smiling and never complains when I go out to tell people about Dafa. He sometimes drives me to the activities.”
Three months after she started to practice, Adeline learned that Dafa was being brutally suppressed in China. She did not hesitate to go out and tell people about the ongoing atrocities and to collect signatures to stop the persecution. She went out five days a week and usually spoke to Westerners.
Adeline does not speak Chinese fluently but she has a wish. She hopes to tell the truth directly to Chinese citizens. Last year, she was unable to go out as Sydney was placed under lockdown due to escalating COVID-19 cases. She heard of a way to tell the truth to people in China through prerecorded messages. She did not have to speak and she felt this suited her situation.
When she made the first phone call, she asked the person at the other end after he finished listening to the prerecorded information, “Do you want to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)?” He replied, “Yes.” He said he was a Communist Party member and wanted to renounce his membership.
Adeline said, “I felt very encouraged by the first phone call. From that day on, I have been making phone calls twice a day for around five hours. I sincerely want to help Chinese people understand the truth.”
Adeline’s sincerity and kindness touched many people. Last month she helped more than 60 people quit the CCP.
She said, “I don’t want anyone to miss out on this opportunity to learn the truth. I will continue to make phone calls even if I can only help one person a day. I don’t feel disheartened when the call doesn’t go through or the person hangs up. I will not give up. I will continue to do this with righteous thoughts. I must save these people. In my heart I keep telling them: ‘I want to pull you up! When I have this thought, most times people will pick up the phone and quit the CCP.”
Adeline said, “I can now talk to Chinese people thoroughly just like I am speaking to a loved one. But there are times when they don’t want to hear what I say. When this happens I become anxious, and sometimes I weep for them. When people hang up after listening halfway, I really feel sorry for them.
