Healed by Christian Science

A good report of healing has come to me from a dear student living in a rural district. A stranger went to see her, to ask if she would allow her daughter to go to them, as his wife was very ill and they could not get any person to go to wait on her and do the necessary things in the house. Although she could not easily spare her daughter, owing to the circumstances, she promised to let her go. After he had started for home she rather regretted having done so, as her daughter was young and these people were strangers to Christian Science; and it might not be a very wholesome atmosphere for this young girl. So she decided to drive to their place and see what kind of people they were. Upon arriving there, she found three little children, the eldest only six years of age. This little one showed her into a dark room, where their mother was confined to bed. She said, the thought came to her, how much they need the light of the glorious gospel of Christian Science here. She saw the woman had been crying, and learned from her conversation that she did not expect to recover. She had not been out of bed for eight weeks. She had both heart trouble and consumtion. Later in their conversation the sick woman said she feared she would not last through the next night, as she suffered so much at night.

The student began to show her what Science and Health teaches about the heart, also how to place her affections on things above, not on the earth; showed her the promises of God, that it was not His desire to remove her from those dear little ones who needed her protection and care. She also asked her if she would read some of our literature. The sick woman expressed a strong desire to do so. The student then left, but went again on Sunday evening with the literature, read to her, and left it with her. From the time of that visit she had no more of the heart trouble. The student took her daughter over during the following week and found the woman able to sit up for a short time in a chair, and longing for her to return as she wanted treatment. It was given, and she was healed. She has been busy ever since doing her household duties, which are onerous. She is studying our text-book, and giving to God.—Isabella M. Stewart, Toronto, Ont.
