During the pandemic, a young lady came in, holding a big and fresh durian fruit. I said, “I am not used to eating this. Maybe a durian sweet is still okay.” She said that she liked to eat durian and that its nutritional value is very high.
I said, “Hearing your accent, you are from China right?” She said that she is from the city of Chongqing, and that she came to England to study. After she graduated, she found a job here.
I said, “That is really good. Many students from overseas cannot find a job here. You must be a very outstanding student.”
“When we were in China, we all joined the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations which promotes atheism. We even gave our lives to the CCP. Thus, there will be danger in the future. Why don’t I help you by giving you a pen name to quit the CCP?
She said, “Ok, ok, thank you.” In the end, she quit the communist youth league using the pen name I gave her.
After that, I told her that since we are now overseas, we are free to listen to more and learn more about the truth of the CCP through many channels. I also told her not to believe in the propaganda, defamation, and lies from the CCP on Dafa. She agreed with what I said.
Quitting the CCP
Another time, an English-speaking Asian lady came in but she suddenly said a few things in Chinese. I asked her if she was from China, and she said yes.
Then I said, “Your English does not have any Chinese accent in it.” She said that she had lived in England for 16 years, and that her husband is not Chinese.
She asked me if we had any vegetarian pastries. She said that she became Buddhist four years ago. I said, “Did you become a vegetarian after becoming Buddhist?”
She replied that she originally did not have much preference for meat. I said, “People who have a belief normally have self-restraint in their morals and virtues. Having a belief is a good thing.
“In China, our homeland, many people need to join atheist organizations and even have to vow to offer their lives and work hard for their entire lives for communism. This is really not auspicious.”
She told me that she had joined the communist youth league, so I offered her a pen name to help her quit it. She said, “Ok, thank you, thank you.”
One Sunday, a man who spoke Cantonese came in. I asked him if he was from Hong Kong. He said that he was from Fujian and has already been in England for 20 years.
He was stopping by his construction site, so he was buying these pastries for his workers.
I said, “You are buying so many things for your workers; they must be thankful for your generosity and concern and will do your job well for you.”
He said yes. They all did their work well. I said, “This goes both ways. You are good to them and they will be good to you too. They will do the job well.”
Hearing me compliment him, he was very happy. I said, “When we were in China, we joined the CCP, and even vowed to offer our lives to the communist party. This is a lethal vow, so we must void it by using a pen name to quit it. We do this for the Heavens to see.”
He told me that he joined the communist youth league before, so I said that I would use the pen name “Fu Da” to help him quit the communist youth league.
“Fu Da” means blessed and rich, which suits him. He agreed and said thank you, thank you.
