Miraculous Rainfall During a Drought
A village near Baihe in the Central Plains planted peanuts over a large area. In 2002, there was a drought just when peanuts need rain the most. The locals fretted because there was no rain.
One day around 3 p.m., a cloud suddenly appeared in the sunny sky. As it drifted closer, it got darker and darker and thicker and thicker. Many villagers stopped what they were doing to watch. When the cloud got to the edge of the village, rain fell for about ten minutes.
The villagers were surprise and went to see where it had rained. They discovered that about three inches of rain had fallen on only one peanut field—the field owned by Huiyuan's (alias) family, which was about 3/4ths of an acre. The fields around this field got only a little rain. They asked Xiaowu (alias) to go to Huiyuan and tell his family the good news and ask them to burn incense to thank the Heavens.
When Xiaowu arrived at Huiyuan's home, he saw five or six people listening to Master Li Hongzhi's audiotaped lectures. Not long ago, Huiyuan's younger sister, a practitioner, had come to visit and to clarify the truth about Falun Gong. She explained that the Tiananmen Self-Immolation incident was a hoax staged by Jiang Zemin and his regime to defame Falun Gong and deceive the public. Huiyuan's family learned the truth about Falun Gong and that in fact, contrary to what the Communist regime portrayed, Falun Gong is very good. Huiyuan got Master Li's lecture audiotapes from his sister. He not only played the tapes for his family but also for his neighbors.
One villager said to him, “Aren't you concerned that the authorities will arrest you because you listen to Falun Dafa lectures?”
Huiyuan smiled and said, “The lectures tell people to be good and follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I am trying to be a good person. Why would they arrest me? If you don't believe it, come and listen for yourself.”
When Xiaowu entered Huiyuan's home, he asked Huiyuan to turn off the tape player. Then he told everyone what had happened in the field. They went to the field, had a look, and were shocked! It was a miracle! Soon everyone in the village came to see what had happened.
One 80-year-old villager expressed surprise and said to Huiyuan, “This is the first time I have seen such a miraculous event. Your family worships a Bodhisattva, right?”
Huiyuan smiled and said, “I don't worship any Bodhisattva, but I know Falun Dafa is good. It is Falun Dafa that brought me such good fortune!”
Since then, Huiyuan's crop yields have become better and better. His son, who worked out of town, got a salary increase of 2000 yuan and now earns 6000 yuan. The son got married and had two children in three years. Huiyuan's family was able to build a single-family home and install running water, air conditioning, a refrigerator, a large color TV, and other amenities, which they had been unable to afford before. Huiyuan's amazing experience is well-known throughout the wider local area. The people who understood the truth changed their opinion of Falun Dafa and know that Falun Dafa is good.
