I began to practice Falun Dafa in February 1994 in Lingyuan, Liaoning Province.
Before the practice, I suffered bradycardia and severe indigestion and insomnia. I was very skinny and weak. I am now 71 years old, and very healthy.
I moved from Beijing to a city in southern China not long before the persecution started in July 1999.
Local practitioners appealed to the municipal government for justice for Falun Dafa. That day, we were led by a government official to a meeting hall. Many practitioners stood up and spoke about how they benefited from Falun Dafa, both physically and mentally.
At the end of the meeting, government officials asked practitioners to sign their names. The coordinator of my exercise site suggested that I not sign it. Since I had just moved to the city, he thought it would be better not to have my identity exposed.
Several days later, a mass arrest of practitioners began. Upon learning this, three practitioners came to hide at my home. I was not at all aware that my home was being watched!
A local police officer questioned me, “We have been monitoring you for three months. We know who you are. What are your tasks here? How many people have you recruited?” I told him how bad my health used to be and how practicing Falun Dafa gave me a second life. “If everyone follows Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, the spiritual civilization and public security would become better, and you police would have a much easier time,” I said sincerely and kindly.
The officer didn’t arrest me that day.
In 2014, I lived in an apartment building, while my husband and I were visiting our daughter in the United States, a severe hurricane hit the city. Many windows and doors on the buildings in my district blew out. Even some large trees were uprooted.
When we returned home, we found that there was no damage to our home, even though we forgot to close one of the windows when we left for the trip. We lived on the 15th floor. The windows and doors in the residences around us were blown out.
A neighbor told me, “We did a lot of preparation before the hurricane. However, our windows and door still blew away. You weren’t at home, and you didn’t even close your window properly, yet your home had no damage at all. You are truly blessed!” She knew I practiced Falun Dafa, so I told her more about Dafa’s wonders. All her family members agreed to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.
After moving to a coastal city in 2015, I met another practitioner. We went out every day to tell people about Falun Dafa.
This city is a popular tourist destination, so we went to a park every day to talk to people. We first spoke to them about the local tourist attractions, and then moved to the topic of Falun Dafa. Our approach worked very well. The majority of the tourists we talked to were happy to withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
On another occasion, it was a very hot day, we were in the park and we sat next to a young man. The young man was very happy to hear us talk about Dafa.
When he agreed to quit the CCP, I asked his last name. He said his last name was “Zeng.”
“Let’s use the name ‘Zeng Fu’ to declare your withdrawal,” I said. (“Fu” means good fortune in Chinese.)
“My real name is Zeng Fu!” He was surprised. “How did you know? That’s amazing!”
