A practitioner from Hebei, China | Minghui
Ailin, 73, and I (I am 74) both started practicing Falun Dafa in 1999, just as the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched the persecution.
In the summer of 2010, I took my two-year-old grandson to a square to play, and Ailin was there with her granddaughter. The two kids started to play together and I started to talk to Ailin. As soon as I mentioned Falun Dafa, she smiled and said, “We are fellow practitioners!”
We went to the countryside to distribute materials, most people in the countryside are kind, and thanked us if they saw us. There were some who believed the CCP’s propaganda that slandered Falun Dafa, and they cursed us and threatened to call the police. However, we were very clear about what we were doing, and didn’t let people’s reactions affect us. Every time we finished distributing materials, we always went back to double check. If they’d been thrown out, we picked them up, and we put them back if they had blown away.
A person we met, named Mr. Yang, read the materials and was aware of the truth. He gave us the names of the six members of his family and asked us to help them quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
We once went to a village and saw three women chatting. We went over to them. However, as soon as we mentioned Falun Dafa, one of them shouted, “I believe in the CCP! The CCP gives me money. It gave you food and yet you are against it—you have no conscience. Don’t talk about Falun Dafa, I don’t want to hear it. Please leave.”
Ailin smiled and said, “Don’t be angry. It’s not good for your health. If you don’t want to listen, that’s fine. I will talk to the other two.”
Ailin talked about the CCP’s many campaigns and how each resulted in many deaths. She mentioned the Tiananmen Square self-immolation hoax and how the CCP defamed Falun Dafa in all the government-controlled media. She said, “Do you remember, when you joined the CCP or its youth organizations, you swore to defend it with your life? However, due to the evil nature of the CCP, it will be eliminated. Quitting it is the way to keep safe.” The two women understood and agreed to quit while the third woman just stood there with her head down.
We once spoke to a middle-aged man who listened to us so quietly we thought he didn’t know how to speak, when he suddenly said, “I don’t believe in anything except money, which is the only good thing. Without money we can’t do anything. The currently administration is good, we have a good life. I think you are looking for trouble.”
Ailin smiled as usual and told him about the history of the CCP, how hundreds of thousands of people have died in its different movements, and why destroying the CCP is heaven’s will. She explained why he should quit Party if he joined it or any its youth organizations. He understood and agreed to quit. Before we left, he apologized and thanked us.
