Li Huimin, male, born in June 1957, only receiving junior high school education, was a villager of Xinzhuang Village, Xiaozhai Town, Jizhou City, Hebei Province.
Before practicing Falun Gong, he rented a shop front for small business in the county while his wife did farm work at home and his child was at school. They were both laborious and able, so they lived a relatively affluent and happy life.
In December 1997, a friend of Li in the county introduced Falun Gong to him and gave him a book of Zhuan Falun. The friend said that Falun Gong was amazing, if you practiced it constantly, you could recover after falling ill without taking any medicine or injections; that it could also improve your health even though you didn't get ill; and that anyone who practiced Falun Gong would be protected by the Master's Fashen and also achieve Consummation, become a god and go to the paradise for a happy life. All in all, "it was really a good way to kill two birds with one stone". Hearing that Falun Gong was so good, especially one could achieve Consummation, he began to practice Falun Gong without much thinking. Three months later, it seemed that his high blood pressure and periarthritis of the shoulder were relieved, so he thought Falun Gong was efficacious and believed in it.
To show the sincerity for the Master and practice, he bought Zhuan Falun, Explaining the Content of Falun Dafa and other books, as well as the portrait of the Master with the money he earned from small business. Then everyday he read the books and practiced Falun Gong intently, leaving all the things behind. In order to go to a higher level and become immortal, he made a thorough plan for himself that he learned Zhuan Falun at 3:00 to 5:00 a.m. everyday, then he went to the practice spot for practicing, after that he went back to his shop front for copying and reciting Zhuan Falun, and listening to the tapes about Fa teaching. Seeing that he didn't engage in his own business, his family tried to persuade him to do something authentic and live a normal life, but he turned a deaf ear to it and immersed himself in the "Consummation" and "Kingdom of Heaven" described by Li Hongzhi everyday.
After Falun Gong was banned in July 1999, most of the local practitioners gave up Falun Gong practice. But influenced by the supreme idea of Falun Dafa preached by Li Hongzhi, Li Huimin made nothing of the national law and aired grievance for Falun Gong everywhere. His friends, relatives and people from his town worked on him to quit Falun Gong and see clearly the nature of it, but he couldn't take any advice because he was always thinking of the "golden house" in the paradise and the "Consummation". Instead, he often introduced Falun Gong to his kith and kin.
Li Huimin practiced Falun Gong and read related books day and night; sometimes he distributed and put up Falun Gong materials slinkingly at night. Due to irregular life and diet, and also he couldn't get proper rest and didn't treat his high blood pressure, his health went steadily downhill and he became thinner in the second half of 2005. He walked unsteadily, tumbled to the ground and vomited frequently. Even though the families were angry at his practicing of Falun Gong and his persisting in error, they still worried about his health. They asked him to see the doctor and take some medicine, but he refused and said "the Master told us that it is removing Karma for you by the Master when you fall ill. After the Karma is removed, you can get into a higher level, reach Consummation and become an immortal with all kinds of abilities." Thus, he paid close attention to practice and believed that his illness could be cured through practicing Falun Gong. When he felt under the weather, he neither went to see the doctor nor took medicine, and the family could not help it.
On the evening of February 2, 2006, Li Huimin fell in a faint suddenly when practicing at home and was sent to a hospital by his family. He was diagnosed with brain stem hemorrhage, which was caused by high blood pressure. After the rescue, he died on February 5, 2006 at the age of 53.
