[Pure Insight's 20th Anniversary Submission]: Driving Thousands of Miles to Save People

Dongfang Zihui, a Dafa Disciple in Hebei Province

PureInsight | February 11, 2022

[PureInsight.org] I am just an ordinary Dafa practitioner. I have been practicing Dafa for 19 years. Every ordinary practitioner like myself has extraordinary experiences and stories. Disciples' every step of growth, improvement, and spiritual purification are inseparable from Master's compassionate salvation and protection. I would like to dedicate this article to our great and merciful Master!

Master said in Teachings at the Conference in Europe, "You are actually by my side every day, only you don’t know it. You aren’t allowed to know it because you are, at the surface level, still an ordinary human being.” We deeply feel that.

Master said in To Dafa Disciples Attending the Europe Fa Conference: Greetings! "Dafa disciples’ cultivation is not just for the sake of personal consummation. It’s for assisting Master in saving sentient beings, it’s because you came with a mission. This is the reason you were able to become Dafa disciples."

At a gathering, I was fortunate to know several older practitioners who are like my sisters. They often went to rural markets to clarify the truth, but they were struggling to find a driver who knew all the routes. A practitioner whom I knew well introduced me to them. We then formed a group dedicated to visiting faraway rural markets to clarify the truth.

I can drive, and I am familiar with all the countryside routes. I arrange for our team to visit a different rural market every day. Although I am not so good at clarifying the truth face-to-face, the other practitioners are well-versed at clarifying the truth in this manner. They have all been clarifying the truth face-to-face for more than 10 years. Some practitioners can help 50 or 60 people to quit the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) in a large rural market. Others can at least help a dozen or 20 people to quit the CCP. Their hearts are pure, and have a strong wish to save people. They never say they are tired, never complain, and are able to endure hardships. Under Master's ingenious arrangements, we were able to meet each other happily, and thus formed this group. We all had a feeling of "meeting each other too late." They said that if they could have met me earlier, they would have saved a lot more people! I agreed, "It would've been great if I had met you earlier, then I could've already driven you to various faraway markets. Then how many people would've been saved!? I am not good at clarifying the truth, but you are; you are not familiar with the routes, but I am, so we can complement each other!” Since then, we have been doing exactly what we said we would. Our group travels more than 100 kilometers a day, and we choose rural areas where there are fewer Dafa disciples, areas where truth-clarification is lacking. We pick a big market to visit every time.

I very much appreciate Master for giving me two cars as Fa implements. Everyday, these cars cooperate with Dafa disciples for the purpose of saving people, and I can contribute to the salvation of many more people by driving these practitioners every day. In our local area, there is a vehicle restriction, not allowing me to drive the same vehicle more than a couple of sequential days a week, so I use the two vehicles alternately, and I have never stopped saving people through this way. Every time we return from clarifying the truth in a big market, we normally would have at least helped more than 100 people to quit the CCP, and sometimes as many as 200 people. Within the first three months, our truth-clarification team helped 11,022 people to quit the CCP. This is still an incomplete stat. The actual number is larger than this, because practitioners are very good at clarifying the truth. One practitioner can speak to several people at the same time, sometimes one-on-one. Moreover, sometimes they help one person to quit the CCP but did not have time to write down their name, and then continued clarifying the truth to the next person. Therefore, this is why we are unable to record all the names each time. Every time we return home, we count the numbers and have a certain person record it. Before the New Year last year, due to the coronavirus, the local markets were going to close. I drove a car of practitioners to some of these markets before they closed. In the last big market, through the joint efforts of practitioners, a total of 266 people quit the CCP, our team's highest record. The youngest practitioner in our group is 45 years old, the oldest is 79, and most of them are 50 and 60 years old.

Master said in Congratulatory Message from The Essentials of Diligent Progress III, "Dafa disciples, you are golden light in the mortal world, the hope of the world’s people, Fa-disciples who help Master, and future Fa-Kings."

Master also said in To the Fa Conference of Europe, "Dafa disciples are humankind's only hope for salvation."

Just by virtue of the most glorious title in the universe, and by virtue of the "only hope" bestowed by Master, we respectfully obey Master's requirements and persist in clarifying the truth face-to-face on the front lines. We are not afraid of severe cold or heat, and we are not afraid of wind and storms. We only have saving sentient beings in our hearts.

Master said in Fa Teaching Given at the 2015 New York Fa Conference, "Clarifying the facts and saving sentient beings are what you need to accomplish. There is nothing else for you to accomplish. There is nothing else in this world that you need to accomplish."

With Master's help every day, all of us happily clarify the truth, save sentient beings, and never get tired of doing so. Seeing some sentient beings truly understanding the truth, and expressing their appreciation of Dafa, we are happy for them from the bottom of our hearts. Just like one practitioner in our team says, "I feel at ease as long as you are safe." "I wish you and your family happiness and peace." "I wish for you to safely escape the catastrophe and have a bright future," and so on.

Because of our truth clarification, many sentient beings understand the truth. Once we went to a marketplace, the street vendors there all greeted us with a smile, "The Falun Gong team is here again! The Falun Gong team is here again!" We also greeted them with lots of smiles.

Under Master's protection, all of us are able to joyfully clarify the truth and save sentient beings. During this period, many miraculous things have occurred. I really appreciate Master from the bottom of my heart, and I thank Master for His compassionate care. Since we are directly clarifying the truth on the front lines, the evil has also greatly interfered with us. My car tires got punctured twice while driving, but we all remained safe, among other things. That was the evil, which was upset with us. Our hearts were not moved, we sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate all the evil beings and factors that interfere with Dafa disciples' saving sentient beings. Whenever there seems to be a “small issue,” it is likely a contest between good and evil in another dimension. Without Master's protection, we would not be safe. Before going out every time, we send forth righteous thoughts in the car for 30 minutes, and listen to Master's lectures during the rest of the time. We did the same for the return journey, with the exception for necessary sharing.

Recently, one practitioner suggested we study Hong Yin 1-5 in the car, so we changed from listening to the Fa to reading the Fa. A practitioner would read first, and then the rest of us would read together, and so on. At first, our reading speed was very different, as some were faster and some slower. However, within a week, we learned how to cooperate very well when reading together. This was because we were studying Master's Fa, the Fa from the Creator. Master wrote in Bell Tower from Hong Yin II,
“Peals of sound shake the Fa world
The voice of Fa spreads in ten directions."

Once, an elderly practitioner was clarifying the truth at the market, and was spotted by a person from the local law enforcement agency. She was taken to the local police station. The elderly practitioner refused to answer any questions and was sent home. She was safe with Master's protection. She went out to clarify the truth with us the next day. Other practitioners advised her to take a break and adjust her state. She replied, "Clarify the truth in the morning, study the Fa at home in the afternoon." She never stops clarifying the truth to save people.

Our team has insofar persisted in this manner for a year. We have saved more than 30,000 people. Even now, we still remain busy on the divine path, fulfilling the vow made before descending to the Earth—to save people.

There are so many things I want to tell Master, and there are too many stories to tell. On the occasion of Pure Insight's 20th anniversary, where practitioners are called upon to submit their experience sharing articles, we wish to state our heartfelt gratitude to Master for His merciful salvation, for Master's help, protection, and for guiding all sentient beings to come to us. Everything Master arranges for disciples is meticulous. It is our pleasure to be Master's disciples. It is really a blessing for our lives, and we are extremely happy!

All the Dafa disciples in our face-to-face truth-clarification team would like to express our highest respect to Master and bow down to Master and heshi! Master, you have worked hard! We will use the time that Master has extended to save more people, do the three things well, and return home with Master! Thank you Master!
