My Friends Change Their Attitude Regarding Falun Gong

After the persecution of Falun Gong began in 1999, my husband was frequently called in for a "talk" by his supervisor, who combined threats with enticements to convince my husband to stop me from practising Falun Dafa.

At that time my husband's friend was a provincial level cadre who feared my husband would be punished by the work unit. His whole family visited my family in order to do "ideological work" on me, calling on me to give up practising Falun Dafa for the sake of my husband and child. I wanted to clarify the truth to them, but they simply would not let me open my mouth. They made absolutely groundless remarks, saying that I did not appear normal. Everything they said mimicked the slanderous propaganda of the television broadcasts that defamed Falun Dafa and Falun Dafa practitioners. I felt very helpless at that time: How could this friend have such a negative view of Falun Dafa and me? Hadn't they formed any understandings based on my positive conduct?!

Several years passed in an instant. A month ago, I encountered my husband's friend and his whole family once again. This time they praised me from the bottoms of their hearts, complimenting me on my appearance, my clothes, my words, and deeds, as well as my overall quality. They said that, through my practise, my skin was as fine and exquisite as a child's and that I was beautiful. They also complimented me on my even temperament. They said my heart was kind, that I helped my husband and educated my child well, that everybody praised my work, and that I did everything so well. They even wanted to let their child learn Falun Gong with me.

Yesterday we sat together again, and I urged them to do the "three withdrawals." The wife, who had been a Chinese Communist Party member for over 30 years, said immediately: "Good, quickly withdraw us. Only your practise will be able to guarantee our safety." It seemed to me that it turned out that they not only listened to the truth, they were also looking at us the whole time and that they believed the truth they saw even more.

One day I walked through my neighbourhood and saw one neighbour greet another while holding a flyer that contained the truth about the practice and the persecution: "Come, here is Falun Gong for you. It's written very well. I am willing to read it to you."

Seeing another person being saved by holding Falun Dafa in high esteem, I really felt happy in my heart for his glorious future! People are really awakening.
