(Minghui.org) Before coming to the United States, I was a bank manager in China. I was responsible for helping improve customer relations and resolving issues.
An argument took place between a customer and a cashier one day. The customer looked very disappointed and swore at the cashier. I walked up to him and said, “Sorry for the inconvenience we have caused. If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.”
“I am in a bad mood today,” he replied, “I had to vent my anger on someone.”
I led him to my desk, asked him to sit down and gave him a glass of water. We began to chat. He said he had just been diagnosed with diabetes, “The doctor told me it is very severe and has scheduled surgery.”
After his diagnosis he had visited a few well-known hospitals in Beijing, Shanghai, and Jilin Province, but none of them could give him a better alternative.
After listening to his story, I suggested, “You are only in your forties and have many years to come. If you trust me, I have an idea you may consider.”
“What is it?” he asked anxiously.
“I heard you are a business owner and are very wealthy. You could take some time off and have a nice vacation overseas,” I continued, “There is a Shen Yun Performing Arts group based in the United States. Shen Yun's performances portray genuine traditional Chinese culture and many people have experienced improvement in their minds and bodies because of the positive energy.”
“Give it a try. It could surprise you,” I encouraged him.
Without much hesitation, he accepted my suggestion. He thanked me and left me his contact information.
Time passed quickly and I almost forgot about this customer. But one day, he came into the bank asking to see the gray-haired old lady. I did not hear him because I was talking with another customer.
Before the cashier had responded, he asked again, rather loudly, “I want to see the Falun Gong practitioner.” His words caused several customers and even some staff to feel nervous.
Given the severe persecution in China, nobody dares to talk about Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa) in public. A cashier who knew me well found me and told me that a man was asking to see me.
The businessman grasped my hands with excitement, “Do you still remember me? My illnesses are gone now.” He then explained to me that he went to the United States and saw Shen Yun. He was very moved by the performance.
“More importantly, my diabetes is now gone. Can you believe it?!” He said test results from several hospitals confirmed his blood sugar levels had returned to normal, as if he never had diabetes. He no longer required surgery.
“I know it is Falun Gong and Master Li [founder of Falun Gong] who cured my illness. I will donate money to Falun Gong. How about 200,000 yuan?” He took out a checkbook, ready to give me the money.
“We do not accept donations,” I replied.
“What do you want then?” He asked, looking confused.
“I just want you to be healthy and safe,” I said to him, “By the way, if possible, please also recommend Shen Yun to your family and friends.”
He was very moved by my words and thought for a while. Then, he stood up and called out in the lobby, “Falun Dafa is good! Falun Dafa is great!”
He nodded at me and left, leaving the customers and the bank's employees pondering his words.
