Two elderly sisters-in-law lived in a village on the Jiaodong Peninsula. One was 70 years old and the other 76. One day in the spring of 2007, the younger of the two heard a fellow villager speaking positively about Falun Gong, so she decided to check it out. She arranged to get information from a practitioner in her village, and watched the video of Master Li teaching the five exercises. When she saw the three words: Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, she said, “They came into my heart right away. I knew then that I wanted to practise Falun Gong.” So she bought a copy of Zhuan Falun to study at home.
A few days later, her older sister-in-law arrived at her house, suffering from a headache. She told her that she'd had the headache for several months and even the hospital treatment could not provide any relief. The younger sister-in-law invited her to come in and have a chat.
The younger one said, “Let me read you a book, would you mind?” The older one replied, “That would be great.” So the younger sister-in-law started reading Zhuan Falun to her, and the whole morning passed quickly with the reading. The younger one asked, “So, what do you think?” The older one replied, “Very good. It's teaching people how to be good.” The younger one then added, “If you like, you can come here every morning and I will read it to you.” The older sister liked the idea and came every day to listen to her sister read the Fa to her. Within a few days, the older sister's headache was gone. Now the two sisters-in-law are Dafa practitioners and so is the younger sister-in-law's husband.
A few months later, the younger sister-in-law went to distribute truth-clarification materials with a young practitioner in another village five kilometres away from their own, when she accidentally fell and lost consciousness. Not seeing her, the fellow practitioner turned back, only to find her lying on the ground. When the elderly practitioner woke up, she noticed a pool of blood on the ground and realized that the skin under her eyebrows had been torn. She thought, “Master says 'good or evil comes from a person’s spontaneous thought' (Zhuan Falun, Lecture Four), I am fine.” She stood up by herself, and the two practitioners walked all the way home. However, after coming home, the elderly woman started to feel unwell. The half of her body that hit the ground in the fall ached so much that she could not get out of bed. She asked the young practitioner who was visiting her, “What should I do? My daughter is coming back in two days. She wasn't happy about me practising Dafa, now if she sees that I got hurt doing Dafa work, she may try to stop me from continuing the practice.”
The practitioner offered her feedback on her understanding, “If you are so afraid of your daughter on this matter, then it's meant for her to see you like this. You should not have this thought.” The elderly practitioner also realized that her thoughts were not righteous, and that she must get well and not bring shame to Dafa. After the young practitioner had left, the elderly practitioner needed to go to the washroom, so she got out of bed and went to the washroom outside of the house. She experienced a little pain in the beginning as she stood up, but overcame it and felt alright soon after. Her husband, who had just gotten home and entered the courtyard, was surprised to see his wife coming out of the washroom by herself, “You can get out of bed yourself?” She replied, “Yes, I feel totally alright.” They came into the room, and the elderly woman grabbed a mirror, wanting to check the injury on her eyebrow while thinking that her daughter did not need to see it. Later, when she was studying the Fa, she felt as if a needle were pulling through her skin to sew up the cut. She looked into the mirror after reading the Fa and found the wound on her eyebrow was completely healed.
In the autumn, the elderly couple went to their field to harvest peanuts. None of the plants looked particularly fruitful, but the couple said to each other, “We shouldn't be attached to the gain, and we will get what we are supposed to get.” In the end, they harvested more than 10 sacks of peanuts from only 0.4 acres.
The elderly sister-in-law also experienced the remarkable power of Dafa. She was living by herself in 2009 after her husband passed away and her adult children were living in different households. It snowed heavily several times that winter. But there was never snow at this practitioner's front door while deep snow surrounded her neighbours' houses, and there were no footprints or traces of snow being removed. People found it inconceivable. In addition, she has become healthy due to practising Dafa.
