An elderly Falun Gong practitioner allows people to see the truth about Falun Gong

Ms. Zhangliu is eighty years old. She started practising Falun Gong in March of 1996. She used to be very weak, unable to walk and could not even care for herself. After hearing that Falun Gong could cure diseases, she had

There was a time, after the persecution began, when someone wrote slanderous words about Falun Dafa and the founder of Falun Dafa on some walls and electricity poles. She immediately scrubbed them off. On the 30th of May, 2003, when she was standing on the side of the road when her neighbour accidentally knocked her down and rendered her unable to move. After being sent to the hospital, she was diagnosed with an "upper left thighbone fracture." The doctor did not recommend surgery, as she is too old, so she went back home. According to the doctor, she needed to be under special care. Because seniors have poor blood circulation and low immunity, they tend to develop bedsores easily. It would be very dangerous if complications occurred.

Her neighbour felt guilty and wanted to pay for her medical expenses, but she and her son refused to accept any payment. Her neighbour felt very grateful and repeatedly said, "Your family is too kind."

She told her neighbour, "We are Falun Gong practitioners and we don't worry about those things. I only have one favour to ask, "If you see words slandering Falun Gong and Teacher, could you please remove them for me because I can't go out these days."

Since then, slanderous words no longer appear in that area. Her neighbour also tells people, "Falun Gong is good!" Three days later, the elderly woman was able to sit up on her own. One month later she could walk normally. Now she has completely recovered.

Where does the money come from to make informational materials about Falun Gong?

By a Falun Gong practitioner in Jiamusi city of Heilongjiang Province in China

I recently went to a store run by a couple. After I clarified the truth about Falun Gong to them, they both felt that Falun Dafa is good. They said that it was truly incredible that practitioners make factual materials about Falun Gong and the persecution at their own expense. In fact, there are many such touching stories.

This April, I was forced to leave home to avoid further persecution. I stayed at an elderly practitioner's house. She has a grandchild to care for and only has 400-Yuan as her monthly pension. Therefore she is very thrifty. In order to save gas, she would warm up water near a heating pipe or under the sun before boiling it. She would keep the light off when practising the Falun Gong exercises. Even the refrigerator became just an ornament and is never plugged in. In order to save electricity, she also keeps the light off when she cleans the dishes at night and eats simple food. Her twenty-year-old grandchild often wears pants with patches. I initially thought that she did this because she did not have much income.

Several days before, she had given fellow practitioners 400 Yuan and said, "I already saved enough for my daily expenses. I saved this for making materials to let more people know the facts about Falun Gong." I told this story to another practitioner and he was also moved to tears.
