(Minghui.org) I have a very close friend. We grew up in the same village, and we joined the military the same year. We were soldiers together until we were demobilized from the military together. We then got jobs, married, and lived near each other. We both have grandchildren now and have been close friends for more than 50 years. During all these years, we kept no secrets from each other, and we helped each other.

My Friend Stubbornly Believed in the CCP

He knew before 1999 that I practiced Falun Dafa. Every time I saw him, I told him about the beauty of the practice. After people started quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations, I advised him to quit. He did because he did not want to hurt my feelings. However, he did not want to listen when I explained the CCP’s evil nature to him. He thought that Dafa practitioners were causing trouble for the CCP. He said, “You are against the CCP, which gives you money.” Although he quit the CCP, he did not understand why it was so important.

Every time I saw him, I tried to clarify his misunderstandings about Falun Dafa and about the CCP's persecution of Falun Dafa. I was hoping he could come to a right understanding of Falun Dafa and secure a good future. However, he did not want to listen and typically commented, “Does Falun Dafa give you money? The CCP gives me money!” I replied sincerely, “Falun Dafa does not give me any money, but Falun Dafa gives me honesty, health, and eternal life!”

I was disappointed in him, thinking that he only cared about money and certainly not about good and evil. I thought he would surely be eliminated along with the evil CCP in the future. I started to resent him.

My Friend Became Terminally Ill

He became ill in 2019 and was diagnosed with nasopharyngeal carcinoma, a rare tumor of the head and neck. The first hospital where he was seen could not help him and referred him to a hospital that specialized in chemotherapy. He was treated there for a month at great expense until they pushed him out, even though he still had problems with his lymph system.

I visited him this year. He was in bed, motionless, and his face looked very dark. Only his eyes moved, and I saw a dark energy cluster next to him. He was weak and had not been able to swallow solid food for many days; he had been relying on liquid nutrition to keep him alive.

I visited him again in September. He knew he did not have much time left. I said to him, “We probably won’t have many more chances to talk. I will owe you big time if I don’t tell you again about the benefits I gained from Falun Dafa. Even if someone gave you a mountain of gold now, he could not save your life. Falun Dafa cherishes every life. If you could wake up and realize that your illness stems from your belief in the CCP, if you could change your mind and confess from the bottom of your heart your past mistakes of not respecting Dafa to Dafa's Master, and if you could say sincerely ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’ and beg Dafa's Master to save you, you could live. But if you don’t change your mind and you keep believing in the wicked CCP, your life really will be over.”

My Friend Repeated “Falun Dafa Is Good” and Fully Recovered

He looked somewhat shocked to hear me say all that, but he then accepted with both hands the amulet I gave him. When I asked him if he could remember to recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” he immediately repeated, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

A week later, I heard he had been sincerely reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” and he could already eat two steamed dumplings with some porridge. He was able to get out of bed and walk outside for over a mile. His color also returned to normal.

His family took him to the hospital for a checkup in October. All his test results came back normal! While I am used to hearing of people recovering from terminal illnesses by respecting Dafa, my friend’s recovery still shocked me. He had stubbornly believed in the CCP for so long, yet compassionate Master still saved him when he started to accept Dafa.

My Friend’s Whole Family Was Saved

There are relatives in the military in all three generations of his family. They all believed in the CCP and had difficulty accepting what practitioners told them in the past. After witnessing my friend's miraculous recovery by reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” they all changed their attitude. They stopped believing the CCP’s lies and started to believe in Dafa; they were sincerely grateful for Master’s salvation.

His daughters-in-law asked my wife to teach them the Falun Dafa exercises and said they wanted to practice. Our compassionate Master saved my friend's whole family.
