For a family from Dalian City, Liaoning Province, China who used to practise another form of qigong (exercises systems for cultivating or refining ones body), New Year's 2005 is a new beginning. Their family of six each firmly gave up their old practise, and together began to practise Falun Dafa.
The boss at one of the family's workplace is also a practitioner. Thanks to the boss' tireless efforts outlining why the persecution against Falun Gong is fundamentally wrong whilst also extolling the benefits of Falun Dafa, one of his employees realised the truth and began to practise Falun Dafa. Then, this person went home and passed on Falun Dafa to the parents, brothers, and sisters.
The father of the family is in his eighties. He studies the Falun Gong teachings and practises the Falun Gong exercises very diligently, and has progressed really quickly. In the past, he usually did not go down the stairs (it was hard for him to walk). Or, when he did go down, to walk a few hundred meters, he would need to rest many times. After learning Dafa, one day, with the accompaniment of his wife, he walked very far (over a kilometre, half a mile) and never rested once on the route. His legs were obviously strengthened.
The mother formerly used to always be lying down, listless and vexed. A few days after learning Falun Dafa, her daughters came every day; she would no longer be always lying down, and she was no longer constantly annoyed. In her own words, she now is "full of spirit and energy."
