It is now over five years since I heard of Christian Science through a neighbor, who loaned me Science and Health, but I could then read very little English, as I am German. My friend told me of the truth contained in this book, and I would read and study it whenever I had time. I attended the Wednesday meetings and Sunday services; learned to read understandingly, and to prove for myself the truth taught in Science and Health. It has brought peace, rest, and harmony in our home. For the spiritual uplifting I am very grateful. It helped me to overcome sorrow and trouble. I did not come into Science for physical health, but my husband had been a great sufferer from bowel trouble, catarrh, and dyspepsia for over twelve years. Neither physicians nor all the material remedies he used could give him relief from pain and distress. As soon as he heard that people were healed by Christian Science, he went to a practitioner, who gave him treatment, and he was soon healed of all the sickness. We are very thankful for this truth that liberates from the bondage of the material senses.

Through change of business we came to live here, in a lonely little town in the State of Oregon. We are the only Christian Scientists here. We have met with much opposition concerning this teaching, and have had many struggles to overcome, but divine Love had given us strength and understanding in times of trouble. I am most grateful for the periodicals, which have been my constant companions, for without them I would have been very lonely. The study of the Sunday Lessons has been a great help,—through them I have had some good demonstrations over sickness.
